Trump gave a speech in Jan 2016 reciting lyrics to a pop song from the 60s. A blogger put the speech to his own music and the video has Europe aghast!

The song lyrics are from The Snake, recorded by Al Wilson in 1968, written by Oscar Brown in 1963. From WikiPedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Snake_(Al_Wilson_song)
The song tells the story of a kind and tender woman who finds a frozen snake on the ground on her way to work one morning. The snake begs the woman to take it home and take care of it. She obliges and takes the snake to her home and puts it by the fireplace with a silk blanket, some honey, and some milk. When she gets home from work later that evening, she finds that the snake is now warm and revived.
Feeling happy for the snake’s recovery, she picks it up and gives it a tight hug and kisses it on the head. However, the snake is actually vicious and gives the woman a bite, fatally poisoning her. She asks the snake why it bit her even though she took it in and cared for it, to which it responds, “Shut up foolish woman! You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in!”
Trump used the song lyrics to draw a comparison of the snake to the potential consequences of allowing unlimited Syrian refugees to enter our borders as we have seen across Europe. Accurate comparison? Comment below…
