Fiona Apple Shares Anti-Trump Christmas Song

Other than recording a duet and performing a bit with Andrew Bird, the great Fiona Apple has mostly been out of the public eye in 2016. Today, though, she has resurfaced with what I guess you’d have to call a new song: “Trump’s Nuts Roasting On An Open Fire,” a parody of the holiday favorite “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire” that takes aim at our new President-Elect. Sample lyrics: “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.” It’s not going to change your shitty uncle’s political views, but it’s fun nonetheless.

A video of Apple singing the song appeared on the Apple fan Tumblr Fiona Apple Rocks, and we have no idea where it comes from. It’s a clip of Apple singing it into what I assume is her phone, with a dog barking in the background, and she rips up a photo of Trump at the end. Enjoy it below.

Even when it’s just a goofy novelty like this, it is a joy to hear Fiona Apple’s voice. Because Fiona Apple can sing.
