I, James Rustad, perform the song “Old Trump Donald Owned A Slum, SLUM L-O-R-D” about race-baiting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Born with a “silver foot in his mouth” (as former Texas Governor Ann Richards once famously quipped about former President George H.W. Bush), “The Donald” embarked upon a real estate career notable for racially restrictive covenants, red-lining, and mortgage discrimination. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes aptly called Trump “The Id of the Republican Party,” as Donald often says the things that other conservatives think but are too afraid to say out loud in public.  Donald Trump announced for president this week before a (paid) crowd in New York City. “When Mexico sends its people,” Trump said during his presidential campaign launch, “they’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing these problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”


Old Trump Donald owned a slum, SLUM L-O-R-D

Racially restrictive covenants, R-A-C  I- S-T

Mortgage discrimination here and a red line there

Here a fraud, there a fraud, every a fraud fraud

Exploitation and deceit, T-R-U-M-P


Old Trump Donald is a clown, C-L-O-W-N

Says mean things about Mexicans, M-E-X-I-C-O

With a rapist here and a drug dealer there

Here a crime, there a crime, everywhere a crime crime

Old Trump Donald wants to build a Wall between U.S. and Mexico


Old Trump Donald is a clown, C-L-O-W-N

Born with a silver foot in his mouth, M-O-U-T-H

Race-baiting here and some boasting there

Here some cash, there some cash, everywhere some cash cash

He wants to be President, No No No No No No


“Old Trump Donald Owned A Slum, SLUM L-O-R-D”
