A group of Utah college millennials are excited about a certain candidate in tomorrow’s election, and they are certainly not afraid to show it.
The Whistleblowers, a rising music band based in Utah, recently released the music video for their debut hit, the “Donald Trump Rap.” The music video shows a group of students dancing on a schoolbus with Trump-Pence banners and rapping pro-Trump lyrics to the tune of the Black Eyed Peas’ 2005 hit single, “My Humps.”
“Whatcha gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside trunk? I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump. Get you to vote Donald Trump,” the lyrics begin.
Gunnar Thorderson, a fourth-year finance and economics double major and director of Turning Point USA at the University of Utah, said he created The Whistleblowers “as a way to engage young millennials” in important topics. The Donald Trump Rap, he said, was in part to show millennials that Donald Trump has a strong support base in Utah.
“Everyone thinks Utah doesn't like Trump and that they are going to support a third party candidate but our experience making this video that couldn't be further from the truth,” Thorderson said. “While we were driving around town in the Trump Bus hundreds of cars would honk at us in support and stop in traffic to take pictures of us. The support of Trump is incredible nationwide and it certainly is strong in Utah. We made this video to show that millennials support Trump and this false narrative that you have to be liberal to be cool is complete nonsense.”
“Whatcha gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside trunk? I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump. Get you to vote Donald Trump."
He told The Daily Wire most of the students in his video, ardent Trump fans, attend colleges in Utah such as University of Utah and Brigham Young University (BYU).
"I was a part of this Donald Trump Rap Video because I want college students to know that voting is an important part of society and for our nation as a whole,” BYU student Neal Workinger told The Daily Wire.
Ryne Simmons, another student involved in making the video, said he made the video “because Trump actually makes me excited to be an American again.” Simmons said he had a “blast” making the video.
“I'm sick of the hidden agenda of big government and I have been ready for someone who can make the right change for a few years now. Trump is my guy and this video was to help people know it's cool and fun to support Trump,” he said.
