When you think “Lawyer for the President of The United States” you don’t always think “member of right wing rock band” but then again, a year ago when you thought of President of the United States you wouldn’t have thought ” Donald Trump”.
But here we are, and alas there is no changing the bizarre world we live in. To that end…
Let us introduce you to Jay Sekulow. The new defense attorney to Donald Trump and unsung rock god.
(note: the “Hey guys” was not in the original image, however it was poorly edited in by yours truly)
Jay regularly performs with a whole bunch of his merry mates under the name ” The Jay Sekulow Band”. Imaginative name, amrite?.
Fellow bandmates include former Kansas singer John Elefante who now fronts christian rock band Mastedon, along with John Schlitt, best known as the lead singer for Christian rock band Petra.
Their music is usually a mix of covers with some original content. And its here that the real gems lie.
The lyrics for their head banging beaut of a song “Undemocratic” open with
“strumming on my gibson, singing my song now, hoping that the feds won’t take it away now”
Then asscends into an annoyingly catchy bridge with some boppy lyrics such as “Now the three letter words have become problematic/and our leaders it seems, smell of melodramtic/Now we’re wrong if we’re right, it’s become systamatic.”
Take a listen, and we DARE you not to be singing those lyrics in your head for the rest of the day.
If you are not a fan of their own songs, then don’t worry, because there are a whole bunch of covers for you to rock out to. If you want to spice things up and play a drinking game along with the videos. We suggest you take a shot everytime the camera shoots to Jay Sekulow looking like the joy has been sucked out of his soul by some sort of socialist dementor set on him by JK Rowling.
In honor of Tax Day and just as promised, here’s the full version of our rendition of “Give a Little Bit.”
