A su­per PAC sup­port­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton, called Stand With Hil­lary, has cre­ated a song that is sure to sur­pass Taylor Swift on the Bill­board Top 100.

Just watch:

The song, which went on­line in Novem­ber, was writ­ten by Miguel Orozco, a me­dia pro­du­cer who was also be­hind this much catch­i­er Reg­gaeton tune about Barack Obama in 2008. (The chor­us of that one: “¿Cómo se dice? ¿Cómo se llama? Obama, Obama!”)

We at Na­tion­al Journ­al take such su­per-PAC me­dia cam­paigns very ser­i­ously. And thus, we de­cided to provide you, dear read­er, with a fully an­not­ated ver­sion of the “Stand With Hil­lary” lyr­ics.

VERSE 1:

Look­in’ back in time, learn­in’ hind­sight’s al­ways right
We came to­geth­er in a way [also sounds like he’s say­ing “in no way”]
A de­fin­ing mo­ment we all can cel­eb­rate [with ham­burgers and French fries!]
And now it’s 2016 [not really, no] and this time I’m a thinkin’
Guys put your boots on, and let’s smash this ceil­ing! [smashes what ap­pears to be a car win­dow with ‘2016’ spray painted on it]

CHOR­US:

I’ve been thinkin’ about one great lady like the wo­men in my life [“Wo­men” ≠ “one great lady”]
She’s a moth­er, a daugh­ter, and through it all, she’s a lov­in’ wife [Are these really the first cre­den­tials you want to cite for sup­port­ing someone run­ning for pres­id­ent?]
Oh, there is something about her, this great lady, caring, hard-work­ing, once a First Lady [ex­pertly rhymes “lady” with “lady”]
She fights for coun­try and my fam­ily, now it’s time for us to stand up
*BOOM BOOM CLAP*
*BOOM BOOM CLAP* [very “We Will Rock You”!]
With Hil­lary
Hil­lary!
Stand up
With Hil­lary

VERSE 2:

Don’t mat­ter if you’re liv­in’ across this great land in a red or blue state
‘Cuz our Amer­ic­an Dream is at stake
And there’s some Hard Choices that need to be made [Your roy­alty check from Si­mon & Schuster is in the mail.]
We’re need­ing a lead­er who is tough and ready [Un­ne­ces­sary use of the present con­tinu­ous tense]
Who’s got vis­ion
For me it’s Hil­lary
And that’s my fi­nal de­cision!

CHOR­US:

I’ve been thinkin’ about one great lady like the wo­men in my life
She’s a moth­er, a daugh­ter, and through it all, she’s a lov­in’ wife
Oh, there is something about her, this great lady, caring, hard-work­ing, once a First Lady
She fights for coun­try and my fam­ily
Now it’s time for us to stand up
*BOOM BOOM CLAP*
*BOOM BOOM CLAP*
With Hil­lary
Hil­lary!
Stand up, Amer­ica
With Hil­lary.

Surely, “Stand With Hil­lary” will go down in the pan­theon of such am­a­teur cam­paign songs as “Co­coa Tea’s Barack Obama Reg­gae Song,” “Ron Paul Re­volu­tion” and “Hil­lary 4U&Me”. GRAMMY Awards vot­ing mem­bers, call your of­fice!

"The investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III found that neither President Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference, according to a summary of the special counsel’s findings made public on Sunday by Attorney General William P. Barr. The summary also said that the special counsel’s team lacked sufficient evidence to establish that President Trump illegally obstructed justice, but added that Mr. Mueller’s team stopped short of exonerating Mr. Trump."

"The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has delivered a report on his inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William P. Barr ... Barr told congressional leaders in a letter late Friday that he may brief them within days on the special counsel’s findings. 'I may be in a position to advise you of the special counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend,' he wrote in a letter to the leadership of the House and Senate Judiciary committees. It is up to Mr. Barr how much of the report to share with Congress and, by extension, the American public. The House voted unanimously in March on a nonbinding resolution to make public the report’s findings, an indication of the deep support within both parties to air whatever evidence prosecutors uncovered."
