Thanks, Felipa. I think it's worth posting the lyrics of the rendition by Kyle Olson:

HERE'S TO THE STATE OF DONALD TRUMP
(Phil Ochs, altered by Kyle Olson)

Here's to the State of Donald Trump
For underneath his borders the devil draws the line
If you drag his muddy rivers nameless bodies you will find
His tiny little fingers have hid a thousand crimes
Now the calendar is lyin' when it reads the present time

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Donald Trump, find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the schools of Donald Trump
Where they're teachin' all the children that itís okay to loathe
The sciences and media and the facts that they promote
Because the systemís in the inept hands of this incompetent DeVos
Who has no goddamn opinion on proficiency vs. growth

And here's to the laws of Donald Trump
For giving us the reasons to fight injustice everyday
And heíll punish us with income tax that he donít have to pay
Now he's tweeting at himself just to praise what he would say
Because an ego is essential to the Donald way

And here's to the churches of Donald Trump
Where they welcome all with open arms except Muslim refugees
Because one might be behind the next attack on Bowling Green
Now the visa of the Saviorís been revoked due to decree
Because Heaven only knows in which God He believes

And here's to the government of Donald Trump
In the swamp of their bureaucracy they're always boggin' down
And criminals are posing as advisors to the crown
And they hope that no one sees the sights and no one hears the sound
And the speeches of the President are the ravings of a clown
