It used to be that country music was the light that shined brightly behind the US of A. After Wednesday’s Country Music Awards, where co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood used the event to mock President Trump, those days are apparently over.

While Underwood and Paisley cracked a few jokes at the country superstars in the audience, their main target this year was the president.

The pair used the melody of Carrie’s hit track “Before He Cheats,” altering the lyrics to “before he tweets’ to better suit their message directed at the president and his twitter use since being elected.

 

“Right now, he’s probably in his PJ’s, watching cable news and reaching for his cell phone,” the two sang within the first few minutes of the show.

“He’s probably asking Siri, ‘How in the hell do you spell Pocahontas?’ In the middle of the night from the privacy of a gold-plated White House toilet seat, he writes liddle Bob Corker, NFL and covfefe. And it’s fun to watch, yeah, that’s for sure, ’til little ‘Rocket Man’ starts a nuclear war. And then maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”

Cute.

The Country Music Association initially asked those covering the show to not ask musicians about recent shootings or political topics. Artists and journalists disregarded the restrictions, which were then lifted.

Some viewers didn’t appreciate the disrespect:
