Donald Trump Beatles parody song


This 12 November 2018 musical parody of the Beatles song Rain from Britain says about itself:

The Tweetles – Rain

What does Donald Trump do when the rain comes? The answer lies in this new song from his Beatles tribute band, The Tweetles.

LYRICS:

When the rain comes
I run and hide my hair
I’m not going out there
When the rain comes
When the rain comes

When it drizzles
I won’t go see Paris
I’ll just get room service
When it drizzles
When it drizzles

Rain, kiss my ass!
Sad! The weather’s bad

I’m not going if there’s no big parade
I’ll stay and flirt with the maid
I’m not going
You can’t make me
I’ve got some stuff I need to tweet anyway

Rain, kiss my ass!
Sad! The weather’s bad

Go tell Macron we’re not friends any more
You know what, this means war!
Can we nuke France?
Can we nuke France?

TRUMP: FORGET OVERSEAS MILITARY VOTES Two days after skipping a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris because it was raining, Trump called for effectively disenfranchising overseas military members voting in Florida, raising further questions about the draft-evading president’s real commitment to the armed services.

Trump and murderous Saudi prince, musical parody


This 18 October 2018 music video from Britain is a parody of The Sound of Silence, by Simon and Garfunkel.

It says about itself:

Salman & Trumpfunkel – Saud of Silence

Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman join forces on this poignant duet.

LYRICS: Salman: Hello Donald, my ally
Trumpfunkle: So great to be here, Saudi guy
Salman: I’d like to buy more of your weapons
So we can go and use them in Yemen
But there’s just one thing that I need you to help me with
Trumpfunkle: Sure, what is it?
Salman: I need a vow of silence

You see, I killed this journalist
Because I just couldn’t resist
Trumpfunkle: Oh yeah, you know I really hate those guys
They write fake news about my Russia ties
Salman: Then we agree dissentShould be muscularly suppressed
Don’t need free press
I need a Saud of silence

Trumpfunkle: Hey Saudi guy, I’ve got a plan
To force regime change in Iran
Salman: Yes, I can help you out with this as well
As spending fortunes at your Trump hotels
Trumpfunkle: That’s so great, I’ll go on TV now
And say rogue killers did it all
Salman: Hey, thanks
Donald: I need this Saud of silence

TRUMP PRAISES GOP REP WHO ASSAULTED REPORTER President Donald Trump praised Republican lawmaker Greg Gianforte, who last year assaulted a Guardian reporter. “Any guy that can do a body slam, he’s my kind of guy,” Trump said at a rally in Montana, as supporters cheered him on. The blowback on social media was swift. [HuffPost]

One company that’s sticking with the event is The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co., which will host the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh next week. [HuffPost]

British Conservatives’ homophobic Irish allies, parody song


This 16 October 2018 parody musical video from Britain is about the DUP, the fundamentalist religious Northern Irish party with links to terrorism, on which the British Conservatives depend to prop up their minority government since they lost their majority at the last election.

It says about itself:

Bally Joel – DUP town Girl

Last night there was an electrical storm in Northern Ireland and a radio playing Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” was struck by lightning. This is the result.

LYRICS:

DUP town girl
Get an abortion and you’ll go to Hell
And if you just so happen to be gay
The Lord will come on down and he will say,
I’m gonna smite you

DUP town girl
No, evolution did not make the world
Nor is it under threat from climate change
You know that Planet Earth has only been here
Six thousand years

We’ve got a covenant for government enshrined
One billion smackers for confidence and supply
Old Testament is back!
Listen mac, whip goes crack

On a DUP town girl
You know we can’t afford to buy her pearls
Oh hang on, yes we can, ‘cause now we’re rich
Theresa May signed up to be our bitch
So now we’re rich

DUP town girl
She’s in a room with Angela Merkel
Negotiating for the whole UK
And now there’s no sign of Theresa May
Where did she go?

British Conservative May’s Dolly Parton parody song


This 11 October 2018 music video from Britain says about itself:

Theresa May (aka Folly Partin’) pleads with DUP leader Arlene Foster not to collapse her premiership with this haunting take on “Jolene“.

LYRICS:

Arlene, Arlene, Arlene, Arlene
I’m begging of you, don’t collapse my premiership
Arlene, Arlene, Arlene, Arlene
Please don’t, because I’ll never hear the end of it

I bribed you guys a billion quid to prop up us Conservatives
Is this how you repay me, Arlene Foster?

Yes, I blew my majority and came to you, the DUP
Remember how you said, “Eh, it’ll cost ya”
Your aims are contradictory: no border in the Irish Sea
And none on land either, that doesn’t work!

You don’t believe in dinosaurs and rights of women to abort
Some unionist you are, you utter berk

Arlene, Arlene, Arlene, Arlene
Don’t f**k this up, for absolute f**k’s sake
Arlene, Arlene, Arlene, Arlene
I’ll give the money tree another shake

Cartoon on European Union xenophobia wins prize


'Good migrant, bad migrant?' Cartoon by Tjeerd Royaards

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Inkspot prize for drawing about ‘balcony hero’ and European border fence

A cartoon of the [so-called] illegal person who saved a child from a balcony in Paris after a climb, has brought its maker Tjeerd Royaards the 2018 Inkspot prize. His winning cartoon Good migrant, bad migrant? appeared on the website Cartoon Movement in May this year and was widely distributed via social media.

The draftsman referred to 23-year-old Mamoudou Gassama from Mali, who became world news when, when he ‘illegally’ saved a child in Paris hanging on a balcony. Royaards compares the hero with a migrant who climbs against a border fence. …

The border fence has a European Union flag picture on it.

Marinus Potman of the art commission of Nieuwspoort political journalism centre, where the prize was awarded, had already pointed out threats to cartoon artists. “That’s why security guards also are here, just like in other places where art can be seen.”

Tony Blair, musical parody videos


This 14 September musical parody video from Britain is called BlairBushes & Blairs

It says about itself:

Tony Blair‘s Blur tribute band looks back at his dynamic partnership with George W. Bush.

LYRICS:

Calais’s a jungle, full of refugees
Following the swarm down to Greece
Hoping to stay
Back in the ‘90s, I became PM
Then I brazenly flaunted the UN
And went to war

Bushes and Blairs make the greatest of pairs
Sharing secret memos, ignoring your demos
Millions of you marched, and I had to laugh

Avoiding all proof, ‘cause none was available
Now every time I speak, I earn sums of one, two, three, four, five figures
I got bad intel, I heard they had weapons
Of mass destruction
, but they didn’t
All I can say is “oops”

Bushes and Blairs make the greatest of pairs
Sharing secret memos, ignoring your demos
Millions of you marched, and I had to laugh

This 15 September musical parody video from Britain is called Blair – Warcrime.

It says about itself:

Classic hit from Tony Blair‘s Blur tribute band.

LYRICS: Arrogance is a preference for the historical perpetrator of what is known as…war crime!
And one’s own legacy can be salvaged if you gloss right over what is known as…war crime!
Tony is pro-EU, he’s not intimidated by the calls for him to shut up, he’ll say his bit…war crime!
Who’s that EU president? You should get rid of Jean-Claude Juncker, mate, try me on for size!

All the people, so many people, and they all died exploding, exploding in my war crime
Know what I mean

I get up to what I want, except on Wednesdays when I have to collect a big sack of money from JP Morganwar crime!
I put my trousers on, have a stiff whisky and I think about moving to an even bigger housewar crime!
I do some charity work, I sometimes act as a peace envoy too, it gives me an enormous sense of wellbeing…war crime!
And then I’m happy for the rest of the day, safe in the knowledge that the Chilcot report will probably never see the light of day

All the people, so many people, and they all died exploding, exploding in my war crime
It’s got nothing to do with my corporate ties, you know, my support for the EU
And it’s not about you social justice warriors, who go round and round and round and round
All the people, so many people, and they all died exploding, exploding in my war crime

This 16 September musical parody video from Britain is called Blair – There is a Third Way.

It says about itself:

On the new single from Tony Blair‘s Blur tribute band, the former PM hits out at Jeremy Corbyn and defends his own approach.

LYRICS:

You’re taking the ‘New’ out of ‘New Labour
You’re like Obi-Wan without a lightsaber
Ideologically, how can we be neighbours?
Tony wants his party back

There is a Third Way, there is a Third Way
Neoliberalism saves the day!
There is a Third Way, there is a Third Way
Moderate centrism saves the day!

You’re taking Labour too far to the left
You probably believe that property is theft
Your economics would leave so bereft
You can’t ignore the private sector

There is a Third Way, there is a Third Way
Neoliberalism saves the day!
There is a Third Way, there is a Third Way
Centrist moderation saves the day!
