(To original melody)
Dreamers see the world through rose-colored glasses.
Trumpists carve-up truth to hoodwink the masses
“Alternative facts aren’t facts.”*
Yet are spoken, and no one retracts.
Will Trump be a president of glowing revivals?
Or White House resident of angry reprisals?
Who childishly reacts?
Promoting alternative facts.
There’s truth and there is fiction
All falsehoods breed friction
One can’t alter the truth
However clever the diction.
A scary man who is driven by ego.
We’ve put at the helm. God help us, as we go.
With President Trump, who can relax?
Cause when our GDP contracts.
I fear he’ll claim it’s still growing.
Declare he’s all knowing.
Defending his smug little world.
Of alternative facts.
*Chuck Todd, NBC’s Meet the Press moderator, responding to Trump senior advisor Kellyanne Conway’s statement about the White House Press Secretary’s mischaracterization of the inauguration crowd’s size (Meet the Press, January 23, 2017)
