An old tune for a new President’s apologists

Here’s a song for all of the people who don’t let pride or shame get in the way of serving, supporting, and sprinkling hosannas on, Donald Trump. The clip below is from an obscure English film shot in the 1930s. The lyrics first appeared in the 18th century.

In good Prez Trumpy's golden time,
When Donald came in fashion,
A zealous White House aide was I,
And sucked up with a passion.
To keep my job I lied and lied,
And sent the truth a-crashin'.
Loyalty left me pie-eyed,
But Donald blessed my bashin'.
