Rapper Macklemore Writes Anti-President-Elect Trump Song [VIDEO]
Rapper Macklemore wrote a song slamming President-elect Donald Trump.
Friday during his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the 33-year-old rapper, who said George W. Bush was responsible for 9/11, performed his latest song “Wednesday morning” about the morning after the election. Even though the President-elect’s name is not mentioned during the song it is clear the rapper–whose real name is Ben Haggerty–is railing against Trump.

“Mad world, mad world, that’s what the TV said,” Macklemore rapped. “Imagine trying to keep your head, While your daughter sleeps in bed. And when she wakes up, will the world be the same? Will my girl be afraid in the home of the brave?” (RELATED: Rappers Put Out ‘F**k Donald Trump’ Video)
“When they build walls, we’ll build bridges,” the rapper added. “This is resistance, we’re resilient. When they spread hate, we shine brilliant.”
In the song he also references celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump won.
In 2009, Macklemore tweeted that Bush knocked down “the towers.”
“9-11…Bush knocked down the towers,” he tweeted then.
