Video: Here's GOP Ohio Auditor Dave Yost's New Protest Song, "Where Were You?"

We missed the Dave Yost concert a couple nights ago at the Cuyahoga County GOP headquarters but the video below is a small dose of compensation. (Though, really, nothing makes up for missing Big Daddy Yost jamming live.)

Yost, a Republican who months ago publicly wrote and talked about his complete opposition to Trump, is in town and sat down with Marc Kovac, Ohio Capital Blog and statehouse bureau chief for Dix Newspapers, to sing his new song, a protest ditty called "Where Were You?" that not so subtly but oh so dad-in-a-cover-band-y sums up the Ohio auditor's take on what the hell is happening to his party this week.

Sample lyrics, to get you all hot and bothered: "You don't do the things you say," "The more things change the more they don't," "Where were you when they auctioned off the truth," and "Where were you when they stole the things that can't be sold."
