Late Night With Seth Meyers parlayed Donald Trump’s latest insulting nickname into a catchy “Jack and Diane” parody: “Sneaky Dianne.”
Trump’s insult-laden tweet was a response to California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s ballsy move of releasing the full transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding the Russian dossier.
“The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace,” Trump tweeted.
A good rule of thumb: if you earn a nickname from Trump that even third-graders would consider childish, you’re doing something right. (Except you, Kim Jong-un. Never you, “Little Rocket Man.”)
The exchange inspired “Amber Cougar Mellencamp,” also known as Late Night writer Amber Ruffin, to come up with this awesome riff:
“A little ditty about ‘Sneaky Dianne’/ An American girl reppin’ California land/ For leakin’ transcripts she deserves a gold star/ Proof President Trump tryin’ to be a Russian czar.”
“Trump, he says, ‘Hey Dianne, why you witch hunting me?’/ She said, ‘You’re lucky I don’t have the tape with the hooker pee.'”
