At a "We Stand With Standing Rock" benefit concert in Los Angeles last night, the ultimate elusive chanteuse, Fiona Apple, took to the stage to regale us/terrify us with a rendition of her anti-Trump parody of The Christmas Song. Her song, which begins with "Trump's Nuts Roasting On An Open Fire," paints an unsettlingly vivid picture of Trump's America, addressing his racism, misogyny and the rising tide of fascism before concluding with "Donald Trump, Fuck You."
The full lyrics are below, if you want to sing along as you nervously shred things with your hands....
"Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire as he keeps nipping at his foes. you'll cry creepy uncle every time he arrives for he keeps clawing at your clothes everybody knows some money and entitlement can help to make the season white mothers of color with their kids out of sight will find it hard to sleep at night.
They know that truuump is on his way. he's got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh and every working man is going to cry when they learn that Letch don't care how you live or if you die
Sooo I'm offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92 although it's been said many times, many ways Merry Christmas to you Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Donald Trump, fuck you"
