A new video of a speechless and horrified Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes on election night has gone viral, as Trump supporters are gleefully making memes about the former Obama official’s befuddled moment in an HBO documentary.
Carpe Donkdum splices clips of President Donald Trump speaking directly to Rhodes, set to Trump’s favorite campaign song, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by the Rolling Stones. You can see it above.
A second version includes Rhodes sending sad texts to Hillary Clinton to the tune “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M.

Tim Young spliced Hillary Clinton’s campaign theme “Fight Song” into the clip.
So Hillary's theme, "Fight Song" fits perfectly over Ben Rhodes Shell Shocked on Election Night and I laughed too much at it. 😂😂😂

Pardew Seleh added the “Sound of Silence” to punctuate the video of Rhodes’ grief.

And of course, Ben McDonald added a little Titanic music to make the video more tearful.
