Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. Sings a song written by Sara Bareilles called “Seriously.”
Premiered on last week’s episode of This American Life, the song imagines what President Barack Obama might be thinking about Donald Trump, but can’t say publicly.
The video shows Odom Jr. and Bareilles in the studio and as he records the song, word display on the bottom of the screen. No man’s ignorance will ever be his virtue / Is this the best we can be? Seriously?” sings Odom.
Those imagined thoughts sound about right.
