Earlier this week, singer Gloria Gaynor posted a similar clip of herself washing her hands while lip-syncing her 1978 classic, the aptly titled “I Will Survive.” Many artists, including Miley Cyrus and Troye Sivan, have promoted their own music while championing cleanliness.

Trumpers? Can we agree that this isn’t a hoax?
Can’t you see how dangerous this president is? He’s been lying to us for weeks. Can’t you see how dangerous Fox News is? They’ve been corroborating his lies.
