Nobody Cares as Musicians, Authors, Artists Unite to Defeat Trump

Musicians are “coming together” to “make a difference” by recording a bunch of anti-Trump songs. The project is called “30 Days, 30 Songs: Written and Recorded by Musicians for a Trump-Free America,” and is the brain child of writer Dave Eggers.

It’s not going to change any minds, or alter the outcome of the election, but it might raise some money for the  Center for Popular Democracy, a left-wing advocacy group.

Death Cab for Cutie was first out of the gate with “Million Dollar Loan,” described by the Huffington Post as a “gentle, emo burn” that mocks Trump for receiving a loan from his father as a young man.

This is a quasi-empathetic examination of Trump’s worldview. “His enemies /
Can’t contain the flames of jealousy / With brutish charm / The women flock to be on his arm,” the emo lyrics softly coo.

Another release, “Can’t You Tell?” by Aimee Mann, is also a quasi-empathetic portrayal of man who is simply in over his head and doesn’t even want to be president: “Isn’t anybody going to stop me? / I don’t want this job, I don’t want this job / My god, can’t you tell I’m unwell?”

Other original songs to be released as part of the project include “Demagogue” by Franz Ferdinand, “With Love from Russia,” by Bhi Bhiman, “Make America GREAT again” by The Long Winters, and “Donald Trump Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack – The Assassination of Olaf Palme remix” by Lendinsky.

There’s also some artists who are doing weird, pointless stunts to “send a message” about Trump being bad.

This is hardly a new development. Various groups of “intellectuals” and “creatives” have been uniting to denounce Trump for months. Students at Trump’s alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, have not only denounced Trump, they are also demanding that their university president also denounce him.

A group of fancy “writers” have also signed a petition declaring their opposition to Trump, but no one cares.
