Aimee Mann Sings ‘Can’t You Tell’ About That Bozo Trump

Aimee Mann is the second artist to contribute a song at 30days30songs.com about American fool Donald Trump.

On ‘’Can’t You Tell’, Aimee Mann sings from Trump’s perspective.

“Though on the campaign trail the papers paint me like a clown / Still all I see are crowds who want to fit me for a crown / I point out all my enemies just so my fans / Bring them down”

“I wanted to write about Trump in the first person because I think it’s more interesting to speculate on what people’s inner life might be,” Aimee Mann said in a statement. “I had heard a theory that Trump’s interest in running for President was really kicked off at the 2011 White House Correspondent’s dinner when President Obama basically roasted him, so that’s where I started. And my own feeling was that it wasn’t really the job itself he wanted, but the thrill of running and winning, and that maybe it had all gotten out of hand and was a runaway train that he couldn’t stop”.

“You try to pin me down but you don’t really try that hard / I throw out any shit I want and no one trumps that card.

30days30songs.com is the creation of Death Cab For Cutie manager Jordan Kurland and author Dave Egger. Death Cab For Cutie kicked off the project yesterday with their song ‘Million Dollar Loan’.

Over the next 30 days, 30 songs will appear at 30days30songs.com by artists “for a Trump-free America”.
