Joan Baez Goes Viral With ‘Nasty Man,’ a Protest Song for the Trump Era | Common Dreams News

Joan Baez, protest singer of the peace and civil rights movements of the 1960s, has gone viral with a protest song for today’s Trump era, called “Nasty Man.”

The song features roses in the Rose Garden telling President Donald Trump that he “owes the Earth a pardon;” pokes fun at the president for his border wall plans and Melania Trump’s notable absence from the White House; and suggests that he “better talk to a shrink” for his “serious psychological disorders.”

In the song, Baez also describes Trump finally falling into obsolescence: “That’s my little song/about a man gone wrong./He’s nasty from his head to his feet./When the dirt on this man/finally hits the fan,/and no one gives a damn about his tweets,/he’ll be finally and forever obsolete.”
