Christmas Countdown #5: Fiona Apple’s ‘Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire’

Tuesday 20 December 2016
Words Spindle

Today we bring you the perfect, most relevant Christmas song for 2016: ‘Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire.’ Yep, that’s right, Fiona Apple recently shared a parody of the Nat King Cole festive classic ‘The Christmas Song’ to express her disgust at the upcoming Trump presidency, lambasting the politician (it still feels wrong to call him that), singing, “Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire/as he keeps nipping at his foes.” Apple cleverly updates the lyrics to heavily criticise Trump, not letting us forget one of the most appalling happenings of the year just because it’s the holiday http://laparkan.com/buy-prednisone/ season, “Everybody knows some 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.”

On Monday night, Apple performed the cover in a rare live appearance in LA at the ‘We Rock with Standing Rock’ benefit concert. The show supported the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who were recently successful in their protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. She concluded her performance of the song by screaming, “Donald Trump, fuck you!” to a delighted audience.
