Fiona Apple Roasts Donald Trump's Nuts with New Christmas Carol
Published Dec 06, 2016Earlier this year, Fiona Apple reappeared with a guest joint on Andrew Bird's latest album, but she's keeping the mic all to herself on a brand new Christmas track.
If anyone was curious about her feelings towards president-elect Donald Trump, the fact that the song is going by the name "Trump's Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire" should give you some clues. In the parody version of the holiday classic, Apple sings into the camera:
Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire
As he keeps nipping at his foes
You cry "creepy uncle" every time he arrives
For he keeps clawing at your clothes
Everybody knows that 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 Trump is on his way
It doesn't get much cheerier from there, eventually ending with a Sinead O'Connor-esque photo rip of Trump's face. Watch Apple sing the full anti-Trump carol for yourself in the player below.
