Fed up with the liberal political activism espoused by many musicians, neoconservative retro rock group Trump Airplane took it upon itself to croon about what it considers traditional American values, only to crash like a Boeing 737, the defective airplane that was finally grounded after two mechanical failures within a matter of months resulted in the death of 346 passengers, at the band's debut in San Francisco.
"We were sure our tune 'White Rabbi' would be a huge crowd-pleaser, given how pro-Israel Americans are," said Trump Airplane frontman, Saul Cantor, discussing the band's new single, which tells the poignant tale of a Caucasian Israeli man of faith who sees the light about Jesus and converts to Christianity, bucking the corruptive influence of Moslems in nearby Palestine. "We were certain we had a hit on our hands."
Unfortunately, the audience response to 'White Rabbi" at Trump Airplane's breakout show in San Francisco was to boo the band off stage in a frenzy of indignation over their alleged white supremacist stance - allegations which Cantor vehemently denies.
"Most rabbis are white," he said. "We're not saying that's necessarily better. We're just keeping true to reality."
He shook his head and added, "it's just a song, for God's sake. Literally for God's sake."
Nevertheless, Trump Airplane has rallied following the San Francisco debacle and pledges to rise like a phoenix from the ashes of any future plane crashes. And, even more excitingly, the band has been offered a potentially career-defining gig at an extra-special upcoming event in January 2021 - provided the event actually happens.
"President Trump asked us to play at his inauguration," said Cantor. "We couldn't be more honored."
