Trump Uses Emmy Awards ‘Green Acres’ Song to Promote Farm Bill Signing

As uncertainty over the possibility of a government shutdown caused the stock market to plummet on Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted an announcement that he was about to sign the farm bill that included a #TBT video from the 2005 Emmy Awards. In the deeply uncomfortable clip, the then-Celebrity Apprentice host can be seen wearing a straw hat, overalls, and carrying a pitchfork as he performs a duet of the Green Acres theme song with Will & Grace actress Megan Mullally. After Trump won the presidency in 2016, Mullally told Stephen Colbert that she regretted performing with him that night. Shortly after Trump posted the video on Thursday, Mullally tweeted, “omg,” followed by, “if you guys need me, i’ll be in a hole in the ground.”
