Demi Lovato, Bob Dylan of the Trump Resistance: Pop Star Releases Searing Anti-Trump “Commander in Chief”

Share

Who would have guessed that pop star Demi Lovato would turn out to be the Bob Dylan of the Trump resistance? Demi debuted a searing anti-Donald Trump anthem on the Billboard Awards last night, broadcast on the same NBC that tonight will host a Trump Town Hall against everyone’s wishes. Maybe Demi can sing “Commander in Chief” during the Town Hall! TMZ reports that NBC edited out the graphics around Demi during the performance that read VOTE because the network thought that implied VOTE for Biden. They’re geniuses!

Here’s the song, followed by the lyrics. Demi Lovato, you’ve got my vote!

COMMANDER IN CHIEF

If you mess with things selfishly, they’re bound to come undone?
I’m not the only one
That’s been affected and resented every story you’ve spun
And I’m a lucky one
‘Cause there are people worse off that have suffered enough
Haven’t they suffered enough?
But you can’t get enough of
Shuttin’ down systеms for personal gain
Fightin’ fires with flyers and prayin’ for rain
Do you gеt off on pain?
We’re not pawns in your game

[Chorus]
Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do
I couldn’t sleep, seriously
Do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dyin’
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief, how does it feel to still
Be able to breathe?

[Verse 2]
We were taught when we were young
If we fight for what’s right, there won’t be justice for just some
Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down
Loud and proud, best believe
We’ll still take a knee while you’re

[Chorus]
Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do
I couldn’t sleep, seriously
Do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dyin’
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief, how does it feel to still
Be able to breathe, breathe?
Be able to breathe

[Bridge]
Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down
Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re
[Chorus]
Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do
I couldn’t sleep, seriously
Do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dyin’
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief, how does it feel to still
Be able to breathe?
Able to breathe
