Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Mock Trump's Twitter Use at CMA Awards

From TIME - November 9, 2017

President Trump took center stage at the Country Music Associations 2017 Awards Wednesday night, despite the CMAs attempt to keep politics out of the star-studded event.

Long-time hosting duo Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley opened the awards with Paisley joking about the songs he had wanted to sing (with titles that included Hold Me Closer, Bernie Sanders). The country music legend swiftly began a parody of Underwoods 2005 classic, Before He Cheats, which he renamed: Before He Tweets.

Right now, [President Trump is] probably asking Siri, How the hell do you spell Pocahontas?, Paisley sang, much to the crowds amusement. 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,' he continued.

Underwood eventually joined in for the chorus: Its fun to watch it thats for sure, until little Rocket Man starts a nuclear war and maybe next time hell think before he tweets.
