More fun Trump-era parodies with "Ghost Donald in the Sky" and bonus tracks

In a fitting follow-up to Carla's post of "The Liar Tweets Tonight," I bring you the spooky parodic vision of "Ghost Donald in the Sky." The track is part of the Parody Project and was written and performed by Freedom Toast. The vocalist is an old and dear friend of mine, the immensely-talented jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist, Rick Harris.

Bonus Tracks:

Laurie Fox sent me this link to her friend Tom O'Connor's "Talkin' Trump Blues." The song was recorded live at the Tuba Czar show with Mark Beltzan on tuba and a surprise guest, Laurence Juber, on guitar (he of Wings and the Paul McCartney Band).

And, last but not least, is a pretty spot-on Nitzer Ebb parody.

Update: Awesome emo version. [H/t John Ülaszek]

With 3,500 U.S. legal actions, Trump is most litigious presidential nominee ever

An analysis from USA Today finds that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is currently involved in 3,500 legal actions. Who else is involved? Everyone from the government to vodka makers. This number is unprecedented in scope for any presidential candidate in U.S. history, and likely far too many for the entire American press corps to really get down to the bottom of, in time for voters to determine what that means for their choice in November.

Donald Trump rates his one-year-old baby daughter's breasts in 1994 interview

Donald Trump on the tabloid TV show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, back in 1994, when asked what qualities his child has from her mom, and which come from dad: “Time will tell” if my one year old daughter Tiffany Trump will grow out a rack as hot as that of my legally-wedded broad, Marla Maples. She already has her mother's sexy legs, though. Read the rest
