VIDEO: Paisley, Underwood Take Shots at Clinton and Trump in Song at CMA Awards

Hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood stayed mostly a-political at Wednesday night’s CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee — except for one skit where the two sang jingles about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Scaramucci, Paul Manafort and more.

For the most part, Paisley and Underwood tried to avoid siding with one political party or the other, but they did take jabs at President Trump’s Twitter habits. The duo sang a song titled “Before He Tweets” — a play on Underwood’s popular song “Before He Cheats.”

The country crooners also sang a short tune about Hillary Clinton — which arguably got the most laughs — and joked about songs they had planned called “Stand By Your Manafort” and “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders.”

Watch the clip above to see the two “try” not to get political.
