Joe Scarborough Goes Full Drumpf For Christmas

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough will release a new EP on Friday that combines two of his favorite things: music and dislike of President Donald Trump.

Scarborough gave an advance copy of the album, titled “A Very Drumpf Christmas,” to Business Insider, which says the artwork features Trump dyed green like the title character from Dr. Seuss’s “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.”

The three-track album is one of Scarborough’s year of music, where he’ll release a short album every month for a year. The track list for Drumpf Christmas features the original songs “Christmastime,” “The Drumpf,” and “This Christmas It’s You & Me.”

Like many of his recent songs, Trump plays a big role in Scarborough’s Christmas album. “Trump has been very much an inspiration,” Scarborough told Business Insider in June. Scarborough and his fiancee and “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski have been vocal critics of Trump since just after the November 2016 election.

Scarborough shared some of his lyrics on “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” on ESPN radio Wednesday. One track features the line “Santa and his reindeer, if they were deported to Nepal, little Jack and Katie won’t have christmas time at all.”

In “The Drumpf,” Scarborough asks, “Who could have been so so dastardly to make Christmas go kerplumf? That orange creep that children call the Drumpf.”

Scarborough’s music ranges from country and rock influences to jazzy funk beats.

“I’m an old guy, so I grew up on the [Rolling] Stones, The Beatles, Elvis Costello, the Clash, groups like that,” Scarborough told Le Batard. As for newer bands, Scarborough said he liked the Vampire Weekend, and said he listens to Taylor Swift.

“I have a 14-year-old daughter so I have to listen to Taylor Swift all the time. That’s pretty good stuff,” Scarborough said.
