Potent Whisper makes the case for protesting against Donald Trump
You’ve seen a thousand videos on Donald Trump - literally
He’s not exactlythe global man of mystery
You already know what you think about his victory
And you’re an expert on his hair and his history
You’ve already know what you think of the guy
I’m not gonna waste my time trying to change your mind
But, whatever you’re doing now, I’d suggest you stop
Cos this could be the most important video you watch
Whether or not you like Trump, he’s a world leader
Everything he says and does impacts on us - that’s
why we always have to keep an eye on how he leads us
Cos if we don’t, everything would just be based on trust
Now you might trust him, but I’m not inclined to
How could I trust a man who likes to lie the way he likes to
I’ve seen him lie, speaking like his statements are a safe thing
Then when he’s proved wrong he just lies about the same thing
Yeah but that... isn’t true?
No but just trust Trump
Yeah but... I’ve got proof
No but just trust Trump
I don’t think that you should do...
Just trust Trump.
Shut up and trust Trump.
Listen buddy he’s got money
Just. Trust. Trump.
Now whether or not you do, others do trust him
28% of Americans love him
If you ever tried to cuss him every one of them would rush in
To many of them even God is barely just above him
But, I don’t like when people call Trump voters idiots
As if you know what’s really going on and they’re oblivious
Their vote was not a joke to them, they based it on experience
Whether or not you like Trump, their feelings are legitimate
They voted for Trump because millions were miserable
People felt forgotten, jobless, invisible
It wasn’t just difficult, life was barely liveable
The people wanted change and they don’t deserve your ridicule
When Trump came along, they saw something different
He talked like them, he seemed to have vision
A self made, world famous billionaire too
A first class businessman… well that’s not quite true
Him and his companies have gone bankrupt six times
Who do you know that’s been bankrupt six times?!
Six times - honestly!
I’m sorry but that bothers me
He’s in charge of one of the world’s largest economies
From America to Scotland his business has problems
He lost 24 mill in 2016
The next year alone he lost $400m
That doesn’t sound brilliant - or is it just me?
They say his Trump University real estate courses
Defrauded students on a big scale - he paid
25 million to settle out of court - but
I guess he can afford it if it means he skips jail
Then there’s the 3500 legal actions listed all against Trump’s not so ethical business’
His companies have been in over 100 tax disputes
He says he’s smart for not paying tax
So what does that make you?
Like real talk - I’m not being funny
If he can’t run a business, how can he run a country?
But it’s alright, cos he’ll put America First
He says it all day, he says it til it hurts
At first, I didn’t really think that I could trust his words
But he really did deliver and America is first
Highest deficit economy - America, first
Highest wealth inequality - America, first
The most expensive healthcare - America, first
A growing lack of social welfare - America, first
The country with the most human beings kept in prison
The largest immigration detention system
The country most responsible for drone strike killings
For these things, believe that America’s first
The highest opinion of themselves
The lowest opinion of everyone else
The biggest killer in the world
But speaking of racist, xenophobic policies
You know Theresa May
She’ll be greeting Trump when he comes to the UK
They’ll be holding hands like he never went away
I guess it makes sense really, they’re clearly both the same
No, I’m only joking:
We’ve got a strong economy - tell that to the working class
We’ve got democracy - though none of us wanted to bomb Iraq
We’ve got honest policies - while families are left to starve
We’ve got the monarchy!
Hahaha come on you have to laugh...
I mean the queen is gonna meet Donald Trump
Your majesty the queen is gonna greet Donald Trump
What does that say to the world about us
What type of message is that to our sons?
Do-you-know why Trump is coming to the UK
Well it isn’t to seduce May, he’s coming here to do trade
And none of you have to be a genius to guess
The US are gonna want a piece of our NHS
And she hasn’t ruled it out!
She is not a leader
Trump’s not welcome and neither is Theresa
But when he comes I hope he loves that baby being flown
Plus the hostile environment will make him feel at home
Then he’s got Tommy Robinson just down the road
And oh - Boris and Nigel said to say hello
Trump doesn’t need to fly here to arrive
Trump’s been here for a very long time
Trump’s right here, in our fear of non-whites
Trump’s in the blood and tears we watch live
But you know
The main thing about Trump that’s unsettling
He doesn’t just represent America first
As the united states president - I’m hesitant to say it -
But in some ways, he represents earth
Imagine if aliens come to earth while Trump was the president
I don’t know but I don’t think they’d be all that impressed with him
Imagine it now: they all come down like “take me to your leader”
What’s he gonna do, make them get a visa?
What’s he gonna do - grab ‘em by the pussy?
Tell them he’s got big hands? Call them all a woosie?
Build a wall around us all, that’s what he does with aliens
And tell them they can laugh now but Mars is gonna pay for it!
Trump would never speak to real aliens like that
If they were real they’d be powerful, they might bite back
They would never fly back, Trump would get a right hand
He only picks on immigrants cos they can’t fight back
He knows that they’re vulnerable, that they’re seeking amnesty
He knows they’re fleeing war, global warming and catastrophe
But he still wraps them up in a flag of fallacy
And actually, in doing that he abstracts reality
He makes you point at them and everything except his policies
Quickly look at them! ...and not Trump’s screwed economy
The robbery of medicare, food stamp poverty
The everyday privatised lynching of democracy
Forget all that - cos Trumps the main attraction
His Twitter timeline alone is primetime distraction
Grabbing up every headline, quite incredible
The ultimate spectacle, the one man festival
Beef after beef, scandal after scandal
Tweet after tweet, handle after handle
He does bad things and he makes the world watch
I’m already starting to cut myself off
We all are.
We become numb to the world, to ourselves, to the truth, to reality
And in the end we become numb to our humanity
Technically they call it alienation
So welcome to Donald Trump’s alien nation
Whatever you think of Trump
Whether or not you buy his captions
Whether you think he’s real, fake, great or a distraction
We have to action, we need to impeach him
And we need to do that for one of two reasons:
1. Nuclear war
There's around 15,000 nuclear weapons on the planet
America and Russia have 7,000 each
If they went to war there would be more than damage
They would kill 400 million human beings
That's 10x the death count of WWII
And trust me, believe me, that’s not fake news
Which is worrying when you consider the announcement of Trump’s brand new “usable nukes”
Yeah, Trump’s got nukes and now he wants to use them
Do you understand what would happen if he used them?!
They’d destroy humans, like - the human race
And believe me, we’re all only one mistake away
A mistake like say -
Tearing up the Iran nuclear deal
Or deploying THAAD which China will feel
Or threatening to kill millions in North Korea?
Trump’s provoking war and it couldn’t be more clear
The second main reason we need to impeach him is Global warming:
Trump’s not concerned with the earth, he doesn’t pretend to be
Climate change is fake news! Is what his position tends to be
He’s never been a friend of the earth, he’s an enemy
The president only represents big energy
Everything I’m saying now is factually provable
He actually calls cole “clean” and “beautiful”
He demonises everything that’s renewable
The fool thinks he’s in control but the effects will not be mutable
He says that global warming is a conspiracy that china made
He says he doesn’t concede it’s true and doesn’t believe in climate change
Then why’s he building walls around his golf courses?
Cos he knows the sea is rising - that’s what coal causes!
But he still dropped right out of the Paris Agreement
And everyone shouted... their passive agreement
Maybe cos his admin is actually teaming
With oil, coal, gas and fracking industry leaders
This isn’t about the far right, the centre or the left
He’ll destroy the earth itself, there’ll be nothing left
What will it take for you to get this through your heads?
None of us can get rich if we’re fucking dead!
Human extinction, for the first time, has literally
Gone from a possibility to probability
But he doesn’t mind cos it’s good publicity
Trump is the most dangerous man in human history
Now is the time to call for global revolution
Intensified resistance, unified solutions
Cos if we don’t impeach him or get some resolutions
Trump could be the actual end of human evolution
Think about that.
