Brad Paisley And Carrie Underwood Piss Off Country Fans By Making Trump Jokes At The CMAs

November 9, 2017 / Posted by:

Because everybody hates everything, country music stars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are taking heat for mocking Donald Trump during a performance at last night’s Country Music Awards. Some country music fans are threatening to boycott the artists, others are ready to dump the entire entertainment industry over their seething opening bit.

According to Huffington Post:

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley couldn’t resist poking fun at President Donald Trump at Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. The co-hosts ignored the Country Music Association’s plea to make the awards ceremony apolitical, and sang a parody song about Trump’s Twitter habits.

Here’s their edgy and (possibly) treasonous shtick.

The pair also lamented the restriction on political talk by adding (via Huffpo):

“Are you kidding me? That’s not fair,” replied Paisley, who suggested singing tracks with lyrics including “She wrote a memoir, Hillary’s Back,” “Stand by your Manafort,” and “Hold me closer, Bernie Sanders.”

Fans #tooktotwitter to vigorously denounce them. Strangely, it seems they were more angry about the barely there diss than they were about the groan inducing puns. This is what’s wrong with America, people. We are far too lenient on lazy punning. Here’s what people had to say:

Boycott all the things!!! People seemed especially angered with Brad and Carrie because Brad is married to “Hollywood” actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley (boo hiss! She played the daughter in Father of The Bride) and Carrie has a contract with the NFL (hiss boo!). One person made this bold stance in response:

Johnny Cash would be so proud.
