Toad's interesting operatic choice

Donny Bonespurs tax supported campaign event had an "interesting" choice of music - Nessun Dorma.

 

Sounds great, but here's the back-story on the Opera from Wikipedia:

In the act before this aria, Calaf has correctly answered the three riddles put to all of Princess Turandot's prospective suitors. Nonetheless, she recoils at the thought of marriage to him. Calaf offers her another chance by challenging her to guess his name by dawn. As he kneels before her, the "Nessun dorma" theme makes a first appearance, to his words, "Il mio nome non sai!" (My name you do not know!). She can execute him if she correctly guesses his name; but if she does not, she must marry him. The cruel and emotionally cold princess then decrees that none of her subjects shall sleep that night until his name is discovered. If they fail, all will be killed.

The last line in the aria Calaf sings is (in English) I will win, I will win!

 

What I find most interesting is IF he's right and he wins, ALL WILL BE KILLED.

 

Considering the little preppytwit has already killed over 182,000 innocent Americans with his pathological stupidity, his choice in music is incredibly evocative for the reign of the ToadPOTUS.
