This song "honors" Trump's lackey enablers, including Lamar Alexander, Mitch McConnell, and rest of the GOP Senate. Great job squelching the impeachment hearing, guys and gals!


They know he did it but they turn a blind eye
They’re getting everything they want from their guy
No need for witnesses or treasonous talk
They know he’s guilty but they’re letting him walk
They’re circling the wagons and holding down the fort
The ass-kissing lackeys on the Kangaroo Court

They say the Democrats are making it up
They pledge allegiance but they know he's corrupt
He’s always been a hoodlum but they really don’t care
The party’s on a mission and he’s taking them there
The hearing’s disappearing ‘cause they’re cutting it short
Complicit and dismiss it, they’re the Kangaroo Court

Party over country with conscience shoved aside
It’s Mourning in America the day democracy died

They know the emperor is wearing no clothes
They stay submissive while they're holding their nose
They preach of family values with a little caveat
The battle cry is “cheat and lie until you get caught”
And even though the emperor was trying to extort,
He got exonerated by the Kangaroo Court

The Democrats tried but their efforts fell short
The emperor is laughing at the Kangaroo Court
Election is the touchdown, money's the sport
The fix is always in at the Kangaroo Court
