Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball has released a Trump protest song today as part of 30 Days, 30 Songs called “Bart To The Future Part 2: The Musical“. The band said of the new track, “”It was impossible to say EVERYTHING we wanted to say about Trump. We knew that looking at him as a peer, rather than this untouchable figure, that we could judge and treat him like any other greedy, self-centered, short-tempered, racist, sexist, unqualified person you meet in everyday life. Still, knowing that name calling will get you nowhere — we kept our examples generalized so that listeners can come to their own conclusions about how Trump really is, and how he would be as POTUS.”
