Randy Rainbow Begs Dr. Fauci to Save America in Hilarious ‘West Side Story’ Parody

In the midst of a global pandemic, Americans have largely turned to one person for reliable medical expertise regarding the COVID-19 outbreak: Dr. Anthony Fauci. As the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and one of the leading members of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force, Dr. Fauci has been stalwart in advising Americans to stay at home, wear a mask and get tested — even when the president says otherwise.

Now, comedian Randy Rainbow is asking Dr. Fauci for some not-so-medical advice: How do we stop the president from making things worse? In his new video “Gee, Anthony Fauci,” the internet star performs a parody of West Side Story’s “Gee, Officer Krupke” to once again lampoon Trump while begging Fauci to take charge.

At the video’s start, Rainbow has a fake Zoom consultation with Dr. Fauci, during which he lists off all of the problems he’s facing in a pandemic, and asking Fauci for his help. “I just feel there’s no leadership,” Rainbow explains. “The president is even attacking you! Can’t you stop him?”

Throughout the video, Rainbow picks on multiple officials in the government, and every time turns back to Dr. Fauci, asking him to do something to stop them. He targets President Trump’s criticisms of Fauci, Ivanka Trump’s bungled promotion of Goya beans, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s insistence that “science should not stand in the way” of schools reopening in the fall, and much more.

“Please, Anthony Fauci, we’re all at a loss/ We can’t rely on Barbie or Cruella DeVos,” Rainbow sings. “He’s winding ‘em up and they’re playing his tunes/ They’re all unethical buffoons!”

In one final plea, Rainbow declares to Dr. Fauci that “you’re the one we stan,” and implores him to do whatever it takes to help stop the spread of coronavirus. “Gee, Anthony Fauci, we’re down on our knees/ ‘Cause no one at the top can help us stop this disease,” he sings. “Please, Anthony Fauci, he hasn’t a clue/ Gee, Anthony Fauci, we love you!”
