The Watering Hole, Monday, Dec 19, 2016: How He’ll Screw Ya (A Song Parody)

The people who voted for Donald Trump have no idea what trouble they’ve caused themselves. Trump never did anything for anybody that didn’t also help himself, even if it was just to stroke his amazingly fragile ego. His Trump Tower Headquarters on 5th Avenue in NYC has become a Mecca for favor seekers and mendacious speakers, including The Donald himself (as he is [dis]affectionately known in his home city.) This is a parody addressed to the ill-educated, short-sighted, bigoted white idiots who voted for Trump. I hope that the rest of you enjoy it at least as much as they’ll hate it.

How He’ll Screw Ya
(Original words and music “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, 1984
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2016)

Now we know it was no secret chord
That Donald played and it pleased the horde
But you don’t really care for truth now, do ya?
It flows like piss, goes forth from 5th
The minor lies, the major grift
The awful king exposing how he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya

His facts were wrong but you ceded proof
You saw him tweeting like a goof
His duty to the alt-right overthrew ya
He lied to you in bitching where
He broke the rules he claimed unfair
And from his lips we knew just how he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya

Maybe I’ve heard this before
I know this gloom, I’ve fought this war
I used to fight alone before I knew ya
I’ve seen his plans and they’re really poor
He’d love to take a victory tour
He’s so bold and he’s not jokin’ how he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya

There was a time I told you so
What’s really going on you know
But now you never listen to me, do ya
And remember when I proved it true
And the wingnut right was crying boo
And every thing he’d do was how he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya

Maybe there’s a lesson here
All you ever learned from fear
Was how to shoot at someone who’s new to ya
And it’s no surprise that he cheers alt-right
He’s somebody they’re pleased is white
It’s been told and it’s all spoken how he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya
How he’ll screw ya, How he’ll screw ya

    • Trump does not, nor will he ever, represent me in any way; he is NOT, therefore, “my” president. Until he is gotten rid of, I remain a man without a president, and worse, a resident of a leaderless country.

    • We must remember that, for millions of people, the Electoral College did it’s job – – they now will get the President they voted for. The fact that millions of others see Trump as a snake-oil salesman won’t dissuade their belief that is is their last Great White Grope.

    • Gingrich couldn’t be expected to follow ethics laws, either. So they kicked him out of the job. That was the right way to handle ethically challenged politicians, not make their behavior legal.

      • Some of Trump’s unethical behavior will very likely violate the Constitution as well. Those violations are sorta tricky to make “legal” — but of course, neither Gingrich nor Trump would have any way of knowing about that little detail.

        • It’s not a matter of making Trump’s ethics violations “legal”. Trump can violate the law all he wants. Literally. The only constitutional remedy is impeachment. Well, some would also argue the 2nd Amendment solution, I’m sure. But if the Republican Congress doesn’t impeach Trump for violating the emoluments clause, he can continue to violate it with impunity.

          Frankly, if the Republican-controlled Senate eliminates the filibuster, it’s game over.

          • Yes, very true. Newt basically suggested that (I assume) Congress make it legal for Drumpf to do all the unethical stuff that motivates him. I guess Congressional Republicans could fix a lot of things, but they can’t revise the Constitution all by themselves. But yes, they can, of course, (and will) ignore any or all violations, look the other way, etc., and take zero action to impeach one of their own kind.
