Rap Meanings

Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton Meanings

Hillary Clinton:

I've been in this game too long; I'm a public servant!

(Clinton says that she has been a public servant for a very long time, a career spanning decades, whereas Donald Trump was never a politician until he announced that he would run for president back in 2015.)

Have been since I met MLK in person!

(She has been a public servant so long, she met Martin Luther King, Jr. and had a political conversation with him at the age of 14. She even stood in the spot where King was shot and killed, on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel.)

I'm a woman of the people; that's for certain!

(Clinton is a woman who is left-wing, which is oriented around the common liberal people, thus being "of the people". This may be a reference to how Clinton constantly states that she could be the first female President of the United States.)

You're a man of the people who don't like turbans!

(Trump calls himself a man of the people and is identified as a populist candidate. As Muslim people are stereotyped as wearing turbans, Clinton claims that his anti-Muslim rhetoric means that he represents those who dislike Muslims.)

I was living in the West Wing while you were professional wrestling!

(Clinton lived in the White House from 1993-2001 when her husband Bill Clinton was president, while Trump was involved in WWE. The implication is that she is a real politician while Trump is just an actor like wrestlers.)

You got skin like Russian dressing from too much Russian investing!

(Trump's skin is noted for its odd orange-toned tan, a color similar to Russian salad dressing. This could also be a reference to the Donald Trump sandwich, the type of sandwich named after him, which included Russian dressing as one of the ingredients. Trump has been accused of colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin and investing in Russian businesses.)

You been going bankrupt since the 90s! If I was in Iran, you couldn't find me!

(Several of Trump's companies filed for bankruptcy in the 1990s. Clinton then criticizes his ignorance of international geography.)

You don't care about the job, Trump! You just think the desk is shiny!

(Clinton thinks Trump is shallow and only cares about the allure of the presidency as opposed to its actual responsibilities and obligations.)

I said that I respect your children, but that wasn't quite right, yo!

(When asked in the second debate what she respected about Trump, Clinton said she respected his children. However, she now says she lied and that there is nothing she respects about Trump.)

Looking like some extras from American Psycho!

(Clinton thinks Trump's children are like the minor characters from American Psycho, a film about a rich psychopath, implying Trump is the main character. This may also be a reference to a photo in September 2016 of Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump posted on Instagram that resulted in memes about how creepy their stances were in that photo.[1])

First name is Hillary, middle name Rodham, last name is Clinton, and lyrics, I got 'em!

(Clinton breaks down her full name and states that she has lyrics. Rodham is actually her maiden name that is commonly used in place of her real middle name, Diane.)

You fire celebrities on The Apprentice! Mutha fucka, I fire bin Laden! (Crack!) *cough*

(Trump hosted The Apprentice as well as its spin-off, The Celebrity Apprentice, and is known for his catchphrase, "You're fired!" While Trump was on this show, Clinton was Secretary of State during the mission to kill Osama bin Laden. At the end of the line, she coughs as a reference to her media publicity for feeling ill during 9/11, which was used against her to show she is not in fit condition to become president.)

How do I say this? You're racist!

(Clinton declares that Trump is a racist for his views surrounding Arabs and Latinos.)

Ooh, you must get so pissed that your hands are too small to stop and frisk!

(In the primary season, one of Trump's primary opponents, Florida senator Marco Rubio, remarked that Trump's hands are smaller than average ones, implying that his penis may also be as small as his hands. Trump retorted that his hands were quite large and claimed there is no problem with the size of his genitals. He also stated his support of the stop and frisk policy, which has been criticized for targeting minorities. Clinton says that his hands, and therefore his penis, are too small to engage in sexual activities.)

So you use your fingers to touch chicks!

(Trump has been accused of sexually assaulting women.)

(She's only 12 years old.) "That's enough, shit!"

(Here, Clinton mocks Trump by imitating what he would say when advised by a Secret Service agent about fondling women. Among the several sexual assault allegations filed against Trump, one of which was from a thirteen-year-old girl. Trump was also quoted referring to a picture of Paris Hilton when she was twelve years old as "hot." It was also revealed that he would go backstage in Miss Teen USA beauty pageants since he was the owner of the Miss Universe brand until it ended their business relationship with him due to his statements made after his campaign was announced. Clinton thinks Trump would say the girl's age would not matter to him.)

(But she's married, sir.) "Just gotta get pushy."

(In a leaked taped conversation with Billy Bush, Trump stated he came onto married women at his whim. Clinton says that Trump believes getting "pushy" with them would make them allow him to grope them due to his wealth and celebrity status.)

(That's your daughter.) "Well, grab her by the pussy!"

(Trump has been noted for his strangely sexual statement regarding his daughter Ivanka, in which he said, "If [she] weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her." In the aforementioned tape, Trump said he liked to "grab [women] by the pussy," a shocking statement that severely damaged his campaign.)

(Huaggh!) That's assault, brotha!

(Clinton identifies Trump's stated actions against women in the tape as sexual assault.)

Don't tell me the victim's at fault, sucka!

(Sexual assault is not the fault of the victim, but Trump said the women who have accused him for this harassment are lying and are only trying to get attention.)

You don't know shit about steaks, yucka!

(Trump Steaks were a branded product of Trump's that failed.)

But the ones on the 8th are great, mutha fucka!

(With a play on words, Clinton says that the "stakes", a homophone for "steaks", will be great on November 8th, Election Day.)

Better save the date; I'm gonna rock the vote!

(Clinton tells Trump to prepare for her victory. Save the Day is a liberal non-profit organization pushing for voters to vote Clinton, which became known for their YouTube videos featuring celebrities such as Chris Pine and Robert Downey, Jr., while Rock the Vote is a non-profit organization that pushes for voting in young people and leans in favor of Clinton.)

Bad bitch on the scene like Murder, She Wrote!

(Clinton says that she is a "bad bitch" like the main character of the crime drama series Murder, She Wrote, Jessica Fletcher, and that she is writing Trump's figurative murder, or defeat, in the election. "On the scene" could also be a pun on crime scene.)

So go ahead, Donald! Let me see you flow!

(Clinton challenges Trump to give her a verse with good flow.)

I brought Michelle's speech; borrow some quotes!

(At the Republican National Convention, Trump's wife Melania gave a speech that was suspiciously similar to the one given by Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. This resulted in a large controversy over how much of Melania's speech was original. Clinton says that Trump should use parts of Michelle's speech to enhance his own lines.)

Donald Trump:

Let me just say I respect all females,

(In the light of sexual assault allegations and other issues, Trump has insisted that he has nothing but respect for women.)

But your rhymes are trash; put 'em next to your emails.

(Trump cannot respect Clinton and her rhymes. He calls them garbage and believes the verse should be disposed of, just as many of Clinton's emails were deleted in her email scandal.)

Our country's in crisis. Who wants to vote for the mother of ISIS?

(Crisis is a political term meaning an unpredictable, sudden, or potentially dangerous decision that requires the president to be a crisis manager. Trump has claimed that Clinton and Barack Obama are the actual founders of ISIS, a terrorist group that has become one of the biggest threats to American society, on some occasions, as he believes their foreign policy in the Middle East created a power vacuum that allowed ISIS to emerge.)

That might not be exactly true, but I don't do politeness.

(Trump has made many bold statements that are not within the realm of fact, but he is not known for being polite and does not care. In an interview with Bill O'Reilly, Trump claimed that, as a presidential candidate, he does not feel that he has to fact check his statistics.)

(Believe me.) You wanna talk about misogyny? Your Bill's worse than Cosby!

(Clinton may try to accuse Trump of sexual abuse, but Trump has repeatedly called to light assault and rape allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who Trump claims has committed worse crimes than Bill Cosby, a comedian who was convicted and charged for sexual acts against women.)

He left a mess on that dress like you left in Benghazi!

(Trump refers to the mess of Bill Clinton's sex scandal, which was created by his semen being found on the dress of Monica Lewinsky, one of the women who reportedly had sexual relations with him. This scandal was an infamous part of his administration, so Trump equates this mess to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which he has repeatedly blamed Clinton for failing to solve.)

(Terrible!) You wanna break the glass ceiling, Hillary. I sense it,

(The glass ceiling is the term used to refer to the symbolical barrier that hinders females from moving up in society. If Clinton becomes president, she will have shattered the presidential glass ceiling, and Trump knows she wants this.)

But the only crack you'll find is my ass pressed against it!

(Trump claims she will lose, and the only crack in the glass ceiling will be Trump's butt crack above it as he sits on it in victory.)

The numbers are in, and I'm right on your tail!

(Trump closely trails behind Clinton in many popular vote predictions by a few percentage points, some within the margin of error. Even when the polls are not showing Trump winning, he claims he is still going to beat her in the election.)

You don't have the stamina, baby; you're frail!

(Trump has repeatedly stated that Clinton does not have the stamina to be president due to her recent health issues.)

This will be just like '08 when you fail,

(In 2008, Clinton lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.)

But Trump will appoint you to jail!

(Trump says that when Clinton loses the presidency, he will have a place for her in prison. He brought this up in the second presidential debate, in which he stated that if he were in charge of the legal system, Clinton would be put in jail. This is in contrast to her loss to Barack Obama, where he appointed her Secretary of State.)

How do I say this? You're a 2,

(Trump rates Clinton's attractiveness as 2 out of a possible 10, and saying she will come second to him. He has stated that his sexual assault allegations are false because the women accusing him are not attractive enough to him. This also mimics a similar line she had in her verse.)

And you almost lost the primary to a socialist Jew!

(Clinton's opponent in the 2016 Democratic primaries was Bernie Sanders, a Jewish candidate who identified as a socialist. Sanders won a lot of support from younger voters within the country, yet he still lost to Clinton with slightly more than 13 million, while Clinton got almost 17 million, which could be considered as a close call between the two.)

What do the American people gotta yankee doodle do

(Trump questions what Americans need to do for something he explains in the next line. He also makes a pun with "yankee doodle doo," a popular American patriotic song.)

To get it through your fat face that they're just not that into you?

(He wants the people of America to prove to Clinton that they do not want her in office because she's not likable. This may also reference a self-help book titled He's Just Not That Into You, written by Greg Bernhardt and Liz Tuccillo in 2004.)

They want a strong, male leader who can stand up to China.

(Trump states that only a male leader can be strong enough to stand up to the perceived threat of China. Trump is also known for his unique pronunciation of "China.")

(China, China, China…) Not a crooked little wishy-washy bleeding heart vagina! (…bloody vagina!)

(Trump claims that the American people do not want a woman who is a "bleeding heart" liberal with fluid and shifting positions on issues. Trump frequently calls his opponent "Crooked Hillary.")

I'm gonna run these streets like I run my casinos:

(Trump will make the nation more like the casinos he owns. This leads into the next line.)

More police and less Latinos!

(There will be more security, as Trump promotes himself as the champion of the police and as the "law and order" candidate. There will be less Latinos, as Trump famously started his campaign by saying that most Mexican illegal immigrants were rapists, murderers, and bringing drugs into the nation. Anti-illegal immigration policies make up a core part of Trump's campaign.)

While you bury us in debt buying poor people socks,

(Trump says Clinton will increase the national debt with welfare programs.)

I'll create jobs tearing down mosques!

(Two more important parts of Trump's campaign are bring jobs back to America and anti-Muslim rhetoric. In November 2015, Trump made statements that he would shut down American mosques. Since the mosques would be closed, they would be useless, and Trump will make jobs by tearing them down.)

Then I'll use all the best rocks from the site to build a wall!

(Trump is known for calling his things "the best," such as the best rocks, the best people, and the best buildings. When he kicked off his campaign, he pledged to build a wall along the border with Mexico. He will use the broken mosques rocks from the previous line to make his wall.)

Dip it in gold and make Mexico pay for it all!

(Trump associated products are known for being gilded, or gold in color. Trump says he will even make his wall gold. Also, he has insisted that Mexico will pay for the construction of his wall.)

I'll make this country great again! We'll all be living large!

(Trump's campaign slogan is "Make America Great Again." He promises to increase the standard of living.)

I'll tell Congress, "You're fired," and put Charles in charge!

(As previously mentioned, Trump's catchphrase on The Celebrity Apprentice is "You're fired." When Congress tries to oppose him, Trump will eliminate them and put Charles T. Canady—a judge Trump wanted for a candidate for US Supreme Court—in a position of power. This is also a reference to the TV show Charles in Charge, since the actor of its leading role, Scott Baio, supports Trump and spoke in the 2016 Republican National Convention.)

'Cause this whole system's rigged, and we all know the riggers!

(Trump has repeatedly stated that the election is rigged against him through a conspiracy of the government and the media. He says that it is clear who rigged the election against him.)

For the last eight years, this country's been run by— (CAW!)

(Since 2009, the nation has been run by Barack Obama, the first black president. Trump is about to say the whole country is being run by black people, and almost refers to them with a racial slur, but he is interrupted before he can finish the implied slur. Trump is alleging that Barack Obama rigged the election for Clinton against him. During Obama's presidency, Trump and many of his supporters believed that America was at its worst and Obama is for blame.)

Abe Lincoln:

Are you fucking kidding me with this blah blah blah?!

(Lincoln arrives, expressing annoyance with Trump's and Clinton's squabbling.)

I've half a mind to feed you both to my oversized— (CAW!)

(Lincoln considers feeding Trump and Clinton to his giant bald eagle. The eagle itself once again interrupts and finishes off the line.)

I've heard more thoughtful discussion up in TMZ!

(TMZ is a celebrity news website with a reputation for poor journalistic integrity. However, Lincoln thinks the comments made there are better than the ones made by the presidential candidates.)

You two got brother blocking brother on their Facebook feed!

(The 2016 election has been very polarizing, with supporters of each candidate disagreeing with each other so much that they block one another on social media sites like Facebook. Such division even occurs among families and close friends. This also refers to the American Civil War, in which family and friends were split on whether they wanted to remain a part of the Union or leave with the Confederacy, thus making the phrase "brother against brother.")

I'm so sick and tired of this ridiculous shit!

(Lincoln again expresses his exasperation and dissatisfaction with the election. He's also likely berating Trump for causing so much controversy via his offensive, miserly, unethical and bigoted tactics.)

If this is the best my party gets, then my party should quit!

(Lincoln was from the Republican party and was the first Republican president elected. However, he views Trump as such a disgrace that he would rather have the party not run at all than be represented by him.)


(Clinton chuckles at Lincoln's insult of her opponent.)

I'm sorry, did I say something that you found funny?

(Lincoln notices this and calls her out for constantly laughing at comments made at her or her opponents to the point where it's hard to tell if she's faking it.)

Wipe that creepy-ass smile off your face and beat this dummy!

(Many people remark that Clinton's smile looks unsettling to them. Lincoln tells Clinton to not be confident in her victory unless she actually wins, as Trump has a large number of supporters. Clinton has been criticized for having a non-genuine smile, making her act looks fake.)

And if she does win the White House, be a man and hold the door!

(Trump has received criticism for saying he will likely refuse the results of the election if he loses. Lincoln says he needs to be a gentleman since he is disliked for his poor treatment of women, and he can start by holding the door—something a man would do for a lady—if Clinton wins the presidency.)

Don't get your fans stirred up in some sorta Twitter civil war!

(After Clinton's remark about Trump calling former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado insulting names, Trump continued to make rude comments about her on his Twitter account after Machado responded. This caused doubt among some Trump supporters for his ability to handle problems, especially since he stayed up until 3 AM that day to continue the insults. Since Lincoln had led the country through the American Civil War, he is angered over the fact that Trump makes his own civil war with his social media accounts and divisiveness among his own party.)

Here's an equal opportunity smack down in the sequel!

(Lincoln says this is a sequel to Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney. Equal opportunity is a stipulation that all people should be treated similarly, unhampered by artificial barriers or prejudices or preferences, except when particular distinctions can be explicitly justified. "Smack down" also refers to the show SmackDown Live hosted by WWE, since Trump has appeared on WWE shows before.)

That's of the people, by the people, for the people! EAGLE!!! (CAW!)

(Lincoln ends the battle with his "Of the people, by the people, for the people," quote from the Gettysburg Address like he did in the previous election battle. But instead of slapping both candidates "equally" like he did before, this time he slaps Trump twice (as it's taboo in America for a man to hit a woman) He calls back to his eagle, who takes him away, once again referencing Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney.)

Scrapped lyrics

Hillary Clinton:

Thank you for choosing me as your nominee,

(Clinton begins by thanking the American people for choosing her to be the Democratic nominee in the 2016 election.)

I thought this would be harder, honestly.

(Clinton then admits that she expected a tougher opponent.)

But here we are! One step away

(Clinton is glad that she is so close to accomplishing her goal.)

From a woman taking the global stage.

(Clinton says she is only one step away from being the first woman President of the United States.)

So America now has two options:

(America have to vote between Clinton and Trump as to who becomes their next President.)

One who we know can get the job done

(Clinton states that she is the candidate who can do a good job in the presidency.)

But caution! One's an orange hot head conman trying to buy our problems!

(Clinton then goes on to call Trump an angry, orange-faced conman, and says that he attempts to buy his way out of problems instead of trying to fix them practically.)

This is my domain! It's eminent!

(Clinton claims that she will clearly end up leading the United States.)

You won the base of the confederate's electorate!

(The Confederate flag is seen by many Americans as a symbol of segregation and hatred, and some Trump supporters brought the Confederate flag with them to Trump's rallies.)

The way you've acted with arrogance proves your temper meant you don't have the temperament!

(Trump is seen as an arrogant candidate with a very short temper.)

America needs some feminine leading, from a mother, a wife's kind of healing.

(Women are stereotypically seen as the more loving and compassionate gender. Clinton says America needs a woman to lead it and tend to it's problems instead of another man.)

The most qualified candidate in history will break your face like a glass ceiling!

(This lyric is what developed into the lyric, "(Terrible!) You wanna break the glass ceiling, Hillary. I sense it." This time Clinton uses it to her advantage by saying she will "break" Trump's face, or severely beat him in this battle and race, due to her being the most certified candidate to ever run for President.)

Donald Trump:

Our country's in crisis

And the Democrats nominate the founder of ISIS?

(These lyrics are what developed into the lyric, "Our country's in crisis. Who wants to vote for the mother of ISIS?")

There's no time to be nice anymore;

(Trump says there's no time to relax and play nice due to serious problems needing to be sorted, such as…)

Terrorists are knocking right on our doors!

(…the many terrorist attacks being launched, notably from the Islamic group, ISIS.)

Crooked Hillary might be above the law, but she won't be above my border!

(Crooked Hillary is a nickname given to Clinton by Trump. Trump claims that even though Clinton appears to be exempt from the laws that govern ordinary people, she won't be above his border wall.)

I'm the enforcer; Donald J. Trump is bringing a new world order!

(The term "new world order" has been used to refer to any new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power. Trump claims that he will be the one to enforce this.)

If it's too PC to diss the Queen of the left wing Media Elites

("PC" stands for politically correct, and "left wing" refers to the socialist section of a political party. Trump says that if the left-wing media won't criticize Clinton, then he will, as explained in the next line.)

Then Trump will be her personal server—one that she can't delete by the way, believe me!

(This lyric is what developed into the lyric, "But your rhymes are trash; put 'em next to your emails." Trump says he will be Clinton's personal server, or he will be the one to beat her. A personal server is also what Clinton set up at her home to send emails with, instead of with the Secretary of State's issued email address. Trump says that Clinton won't be able to delete him like she deleted her emails in her email scandal.)

A vote for me in the end is a promise my slogan will start making sense.

(Trump claims that if the people vote for him, he will "Make America Great Again" as his slogan promises.)

Hillary for the Pillory! Lock her up to Make America Great Again!

(A pillory is a wooden framework used to imprison offenders. Trump sees Clinton as a crook and states that America would be better off with her locked away. This also references Trump's slogan mentioned in the previous line.)

Hillary Clinton:

America is already great! Don't let a privileged rich man tell you it ain't!

(Clinton argues against Trump's slogan and says that the American people shouldn't be persuaded to think America isn't already a great country.)

Your vision of the good 'ol days is when hard working citizens used to be slaved in chains!

(Human slavery existed in the United States from the 18th to the 19th century. Trump is commonly seen as a racist candidate, therefore Clinton says that his idea of America's "great" days was when the slave trade was in action.)

You're too vague! Your campaign is one short statement based on shameless racist hatred.

(Clinton says that Trump's presidential campaign is mostly based on racism and hatred instead of actual statements and ideas to help the country.)

Who knew such a small man could be such a bigot ignoramus?

(Clinton says that Trump is very ignorant and bigoted for someone who is so small, most likely referring to his small hands.)

We got our hope and change but now the term has ended *cough*

(The previous presidential term is coming to a close.)

So we need a vessel to secure our path of progression *cough*

(America now needs another person to take over the role of President.)

But this liar *cough* is feeding these racist meme henchmen

(Clinton says Trump is lying and encouraging the racist people.)

What kind of decent businessman *sips water* has his own team against him?

(One of Trump's top campaign strategists, Stephanie Cegielski, has resigned from Trump's campaign in protest. Clinton says that Trump can't be a very good businessman if even his own team dislike him.)

But what difference does it make?

(Reference to the famous quote "What difference at this point does it make?" of Clinton during the Benghazi hearing.)

If your Twitter account becomes the head of state

(Trump likes to brag about how many followers he has on social media, though Clinton says it makes no difference who is in the lead on Twitter.)

You'd go bankrupt in the first hundred days!

(Clinton claims that if Trump became President, he would spend all of his money impractically and lose it within the first hundred days in office.)

With that judgment, you'll fumble our country away!

(Clinton then says that Trump is too foolish and clumsy to handle the country, and would end up making it worse.)

If those tiny fingers are on the button, you'll ignore that this world is unaffordable.

(Clinton says that Trump is too careless to be allowed control over America's nuclear weapons. She also jokes about his tiny fingers, as referenced in the lyric, "Ooh, you must get so pissed that your hands are too small to stop and frisk!")

You say that I'm Satan? I'll send you to hell in a hand basket of your deplorables!

(Clinton says that she will send Trump down to hell, like Satan, along with his "basket of deplorables", meaning his deplorable qualities such as being racist, sexist, and homophobic. This is a reference to the quote from Clinton at a fund-raiser, "You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.")

What's next, rape? You want to "Make America Hate"!

(Trump has been accused of many sexual misconducts in his lifetime. Clinton rhetorically asks what he will do to the women next, suggesting rape. Clinton then references Trump's slogan, "Make America Great Again", and says that he instead wants to make fill America with hateful qualities.)

If there's anything that you raised right it's the stakes on November 8!

(This lyric is what developed into the lyrics, "You don't know shit about steaks, yucka! But the ones on the 8th are great, mutha fucka!" Clinton says that the only things Trump can raise correctly, if anything, are the political stakes on voting day.)

This November, remember, we can't put his tiny finger on the button

(See "If those tiny fingers are on the button, you'll ignore that this world is unaffordable.")

Bernie Sanders:

Where is my fair share of raps that I earned?

(Bernie Sanders, a former Democratic candidate in the 2016 election, has been known to speak about fair shares of taxes on many occasions. Sanders appears claiming that he has earned a place in this rap, and complains that he isn't getting his "fair share" of raps.)

If Bernie got a turn you would all Feel the Bern!

(Sanders then says that if he were to rap, both Clinton and Trump would get harshly insulted, or "burned". This is a reference to Sanders' campaign slogan, Feel the Bern, with Sanders' nickname, the Bern, being a homophone of the word "burn".)

Donald Trump:

The system is rigged! Ladies and gentlemen! Just look at this poor communist…

(This lyric is what developed into the lyric, "'Cause this whole system's rigged, and we all know the riggers!" Trump has called Sanders a communist at a Cleveland rally in the past, and now yet again claims the election is rigged, using Sanders as proof.)

Bernie Sanders:

Um…I'm a Democratic Socialist…

(Sanders corrects Trump's claims.)

Donald Trump:

You were hopeless, it was obvious!

(Trump then claims that Sanders was quite clearly useless and not fit for the role.)

So for every vote that didn't count,

You can't complain if you help them out.

(According to information recently found, Clinton rigged the primary, and Sanders would have won against her in California, but approximately 15% of his votes were flipped to vote for Clinton.)

If I lose this race, that's it!

Both Mexico and Hillary are going to pay for it!

(Trump says that if he doesn't win the election, Clinton will "pay for it", or be punished. This has a double meaning, as it also refers to the fact that Trump has insisted that Mexico will pay for his border wall, as referenced in the lyric, "Dip it in gold and make Mexico pay for it all!")

You're disqualified to be President 'cause you're lying more than Ted ever did!

(Ted Cruz, a former Republican candidate in the 2016 election, is known by Trump as "Lying Ted" due to his frequent dishonesty. Trump claims that Clinton is an even bigger liar than Cruz is.)

If you take away the vagina, you wouldn't last one day as a candidate!

(Trump says that the only reason Clinton has been chosen as a presidential candidate is because she is a woman.)

This race is getting tighter, which is terrific, it's great, who would have known?

(Trump claims that the presidential race is getting closer, then admits that he is surprised Clinton is actually keeping up.)

Since your husband loves them women when they're going down the polls!

(This lyric appears to be what developed into the lyric, "(Believe me.) You wanna talk about misogyny? Your Bill's worse than Cosby!" Trump claims that Bill would enjoy watching pole dancers due to his accused sexual misconduct, but uses the word "polls" as a homophone to joke about Clinton going down the polls in the election, or going down in votes.)

This hack will cough our country away;

(Clinton has recently suffered from severe coughing fits in the campaign trail. Trump mimics Clinton's previous "…fumble our country away" line by saying that she would end up coughing America away.)

The first lady to croak the first day!

(Trump then says that Clinton would be the first female President to die out within the first day.)

While I'm running on both my fan base my brand name,

This crippled witch will be walking with Kaine!

(Trump says that while he is running his many companies and fan bases, Clinton will be left crippled and struggling to walk. The word "running" here means to be in charge of something, though it is has a double meaning, as it is also the quicker version of "walking". Tim Kaine is Clinton's vice presidential running mate in the election, and Kaine is a homophone of "cane", a stick used to help crippled people walk.)

I'm no conspiracy theorist, but there might be some tyranny near us…

(Trump's tendency to refer to shadowy conspiracies among corrupt elites is a hallmark of his presidential campaign. Trump is suspicious of Clinton, saying she uses her power in cruel and unreasonable ways.)

I'm not saying Hillary's a terrorist, but she's probably a terrorist.

(Trump confirms that he isn't accusing Clinton of being a terrorist, before instantly taking it by saying she probably is a terrorist due to claims of her connection with ISIS.)

So there is only one strong man, only one wall plan,

Only one Trump to single handedly bring jobs back!

(Trump says he is the only person who can bring jobs back into America, which is a key point in his campaign along with his border wall plan.)

An American, I'm proud to be! A politician, you have to be!

(Trump claims he is a proud American citizen while Clinton needs political power.)

While Americans were stranded and counting on you, you were sound asleep, just counting sheep!

(This lyric appears to be what developed into the lyric, "He left a mess on that dress like you left in Benghazi!" Trump blames Clinton for failing to save the Americans who were counting on her in the Benghazi attack.)

The United States is the master race!

(Trump claims that the American people are superior.)

When these illegals pack and get shipped away

(Another key point in Trump's campaign is the deporting of illegal immigrants in America.)



(Trump claims that his deportation campaign will create lots of winning in America. "Border" is a reference to Trump's border wall, but is also saying that there will be so much winning that everyone will be bored of winning all of the time.)

I'm the best candidate God ever created

(Trump claims that he is a God-gifted candidate. This could also be a reference to the quote, "I will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created," from his presidential announcement speech.)

In the Bible, the Savior beats Satan. I've read it!

(In the Bible, it claims Jesus Christ died for our sins and defeated Satan. Trump makes connection to the Bible, making himself look like a better person.)

It says: In 2016, Trump's the reincarnation. I'm just saying!

(Trump then claims that he is the reincarnation of the Savior, and he will defeat Clinton, who he identifies as Satan.)

Little Red LYING hood and her basket of DEPORTABLES

(Trump makes a pun on the popular fairy tale, "Little Red Riding Hood", to call Clinton a liar. He then makes another pun, this time on Clinton's "basket of deplorables" quote, saying she has a "basket" of deportable immigrants that she personally helps.)

More police folks, and less Latinos!

(This lyric is what developed into the lyric, "More police, and less Latinos!")

Ronald Reagan:

Mr. Trump, tear down this wall!

(This is a reference to Reagan's famous quote from his speech at Brandenburg Gate. Reagan orders Trump to knock down his border wall.)

Let me give you an actual lesson in capitalism

You compassionate ridden nationalist chicken

(Reagan prepares to give Trump a lesson in capitalism.)

On your hat, it is written what I had envisioned!

(Trump has a hat with his slogan, "Make America Great Again", written on the front. The phrase was first used in Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign speech, so Reagan claims Trump is simply following him.)

You turned the G.O.P. into a Grandad's Old Party!

(G.O.P. stands for Grand Old Party, also known as the Republican Party. Reagan says Trump turned "Grand" into "Grandad's" due to his old age for a presidential nominee.)

What resembles a republic in this Republican?

(Reagan says Trump, a Republican, doesn't share any qualities, such as power or equality, with a republic.)

You're no champion of women's rights when your foundation is made for and paid for

By nations that suppress gays and women just for the sake of hatred!

(Clinton is a life-long fighter for women's rights. Reagan claims that she isn't a role model due to the Clinton Foundation's donors being countries with awful records on women's rights.)

And you silence the ones who dissent

There's a list of women who still lament

From being trapped in your husband's bed

(This time, Reagan takes a jab at Bill Clinton by mentioning that there are lots of women who grieve from the memories of being a victim of his sexual misconduct, and Clinton just silences those who hold variant opinions.)

And you couldn't care less!

(Clinton doesn't appear to care about her husband's accusations.)

You'll use executive orders to have our amendments killed

(Clinton wants to essentially abolish the Amendments of the United States.)

Since you're not for free speech when you gotta pay the Bill!

(The First Amendment mentions the freedom of speech. Hillary and Bill Clinton combined to earn more than $153 million from paid speeches from 2001 until last spring. Reagan links this to having to pay the bills, but in this case, refers to Bill Clinton, saying Hillary is simply his puppet.)

So, to make my choice, I'll flip a coin, and no matter if tails or heads

(Reagan claims that he may as well flip a coin to decide who wins, as neither candidates are fit to be President.)

Two of the wealthiest Americans still won't make any cents!

(Reagan claims that whoever wins the presidency will still make no sense, making a pun on the word "sense" with the homophone "cents", and also referencing their extreme wealth.)
