From GQ: "Thompson, Chance, and a break-dancing Jesus pitch Christmas as a chance to revel in all of the good things in danger of disappearing under the Trump administration, like same-sex marriage, the Affordable Care Act, and the North Pole. D.M.C. himself even stopped by to deliver a delightful 'Make America Great Again' hat punchline."
The video ends with shots of Obama dropping the mic at his final White House Correspondents' Dinner earlier this year.
The origins of the phrase "drop the mic" dates back to the late 1800s. It comes from the poem "A Mic dropped carefully on a Stage" (below on the left) by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request). His poem inspired third-cousin Emily to pen her poem "A Word dropped careless on a Page" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
A Mic dropped carefully on a Stage
May stimulate a cheer
When done with flourish it can make
The rankled Target sneer
Inflection in the sentence breeds
A gasp with laughs to spare
With triumph once the gesture's made
From the Hysteria
By Emily Dickinson:
A Word dropped careless on a Page
May stimulate an eye
When folded in perpetual seam
The Wrinkled Maker lie
Infection in the sentence breeds
We may inhale Despair
At distances of Centuries
From the Malaria
