Trump shares throwback video of him singing ‘Green Acres’ in a straw hat to celebrate Farm Bill
On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed the long-awaited Farm Bill. The bill aims to help with funding for food assistance programs, legalizes hemp production, and provides support for farmers across the country.
To celebrate the moment, the president shared a clip from the 2005 Emmy Awards show when he sang the “Green Acres” song with actress Megan Mullally.
The throwback video showed President Donald Trump dressed as a farmer in a straw hat, wearing overalls while holding a pitchfork. Next to him was “Will & Grace” actress Megan Mullally.
However, the actress wasn’t so pleased with the revival of the clip. Within around 35 minutes after the tweet went up, Mullally simply tweeted “omg.”

She didn’t specify that she was referring to Trump’s post but it was pretty obvious. The actress appeared to be quite embarrassed by the performance and being linked to the president.
Mullally then headed over to her Instagram page and shared a screenshot of Trump’s Twitter page and the post. She captioned her post with a simple “no.”
The clip was from the 2005 Emmy Awards. In 2016, Mullally appeared on The Late Show where she made it clear that she doesn’t support the president.

The Farm Bill will be worth $867 billion. Its official name is the Agriculture Improvement Act and it will provide both farm subsidies and assistance for those struggling to afford food.

The Farm Bill was officially signed at 4 p.m. without SNAP work requirement changes. The proposed changes are through the USDA.
It seeks to have all Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWDs) from ages 18 to 49 on SNAP to be placed into work programs. They wish to promote the idea of “productivity” over “poverty.”
"The goal is to move these Americans from dependents to independents and into a good paying job and rewarding career.”
