Network Bigwigs 'Gotta Quit Giving In'

Jan 9, 2019

He’s a controversial president who’s known for telling fibs
About a crisis down at the border, says it’s caused by all us libs
Shut down the government, threw a fit, claimed it’s a national emergency
Just another fib delivered in prime time by every network on TV

So blow up your TV, throw away your remote
Tell the network bigwigs they gotta quit giving in
Don’t let ‘em spread hate and fear and anger
I’m not buying this panic about folks with brown skin

Back when President Obama asked the networks if he
Could have a prime time slot to explain immigration policy
They all told him “no way,” but when Trump wanted to have his talk
All the TV networks, gave it up without so much as a squawk

So blow up your TV, throw away your remote
Tell the network bigwigs they gotta quit giving in
Don’t let ‘em spread hate and fear and anger
I’m not buying this panic about folks with brown skin

(Apologies to John Prine.)
