"Trumping 'Round the Mountain" is Part One of a planned trilogy spoofing the surreal presidential campaign of Donald Trump, in which Walter Szykitka sings lyrics he wrote to the melody of "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain." Part One - The Beginning is to be followed by Part Two - The Middle (which will comment on the twists and turns in this ongoing bizarre campaign), and Part Three - The End (which will cover what Mr. Szykitka expects to be the final outcome of this phantasmagorical political drama).

A three-minute parody of the surreal presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump is earning raves from some Trump opponents while occasionally confusing others who fear it might be taken the wrong way by Trump supporters.

In this home-spun video ("Trumping 'Round the Mountain"), now on YouTube at https://youtu.be/V5wJfrpvH-w, Walter Szykitka sings lyrics he wrote to the melody of the familiar traditional folk song, “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain.”    

Most early previewers got the parody:

  • “Brilliant, Beautiful”
  • “I think you nailed it, Walter”
  • “Sums up the Trump fantasy. Great spoof and performance.”
  • “The song and the performance are terrific!”

Others are not so sure:

  • “I could see some people thinking it was real.”
  • “I hope it is tongue in cheek.”

Mr. Szykitka calls this video Part One – The Beginning, which he describes as “the first in a trilogy about the dizzying presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.” Part Two – The Middle will explore the ongoing campaign and its multitude of bizarre twists and turns. Part Three – The End will cover what Szykitka expects to be the final outcome of this phantasmagorical political drama now gripping the country and the world.
