It's Donald Trump as you've never heard him before

Lin-Manuel Miranda is nothing if not resourceful. The Hamilton creator proved that he could make a musical out of even the most unorthodox materials when he crafted a musical for GQ, completely comprised entirely of tweets by Donald Trump.

While holding court on the top floor of a New York City sightseeing tour bus, Miranda sang tweets that the presidential candidate had written.

A choice example? “”Happy Thanksgiving to all–even the haters and losers” and other holiday greetings, which Miranda miraculously made sound like full-fledged songs for what the magazine titled, Trump the Musical.

You can watch Miranda sing his heart out below.
