“As you know we’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump,” Lisa Simpson — the first straight, female president — said in the March 19, 2000 episode of the Simpsons. Modern Baseball used the episode’s title and this oddly coincidental joke as the theme for their new song, “Bart to the Future Part 2: The Musical.” It’s the Philly outfit’s contribution to 30 Days, 30 Songs, a Youtube channel dedicated to producing anti-Donald Trump music up until the election.
Just because the song is “political” doesn’t mean that it isn’t catchy. A memorable hook is important. People at the polling booths will be silently singing “Piss off / Get lost / I can’t conceive it / How did you make it this far / Without them seeing all the facts / All that lacks / In you.”
If “The Donald” does become president, maybe all those people unhappy with the outcome will follow Modern Baseball’s lead and “file for divorce from my country.”
