Finneas bids farewell to Donald Trump with new song, Where The Poison Is

Finneas marked Joe Biden’s win in the US presidential election over the weekend by releasing a new song. Or, really, technically speaking, he marked Donald Trump’s loss. ‘Where The Poison Is’ has some pointed words for the outgoing leader of the free world.

Announcing the song in a tweet co-opting Trump’s famous catchphrase, ‘you’re fired’, he unveiled a track which, among other things, takes aim at the out-going President’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, singing: “When all my friends get sick it’s on the President / When all my friends get sick it’s on his government”.

He then adds that “there’s a snake that thinks it’s the President”.

Although the song is very clearly anti-Trump, it doesn’t give Biden a free ride either, noting the challenges that face the new President. “Once we put this all behind us”, he sings, “we get to go right back to school shootings and a climate crisis”.

So what I’m saying is, it’s not a euphoric celebration. Listen to the song here:
