This band took a Sad! song and made it better.

A Beatles tribute/Trump parody band called the Trump Beatles played their take on "Hey Jude" to a live audience on the L train this weekend, as captured in the video below.

The Trump Beatles, whose bio describes them as "far better than those losers, the regular Beatles,"  mocked President Donald Trump's antagonistic relationship with the press — which he has repeatedly derided as "fake news."

"Fake news, you make me mad 'cuz you're fake news," sings the Trump Beatles' lead guitarist, who wears a Trump-esque tousled blond wig, John Lennon sunglasses, and a broad red tie, in the video published Sunday. "The minute you say something that I like, then you might just turn out to be real news." 

The band — which also swept up straphangers on the L train in a refrain of "Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah" — name-drop the New York Times as a prime example of "fake news," echoing Trump's repeated attacks on the 165-year-old print publication (which sparked a televised response from The Gray Lady).

"Fake News" isn't the Trump Beatles' only single. The four-piece band has also released tunes like "Pussy to Grab," a satirical version of "She's Got a Ticket to Ride," and "Billionaire," a parody of "I Saw Her Standing There."
