:hmmm:

"­That’s great!"

Do I even need to explain this reference? Make America Great Again!

"It starts with an earthquake,"

Trump’s nomination was a great earthquake in politics…

"listen to yourself churn."

Everyone’s stomach is churning over this election

"World serves its own needs, dummy, serve your own needs."

This is what Trump is saying — that the whole world serves its own needs and that America is a dummy for not just tending to its own needs.

"Team by team reporters baffled, Trumped, tethered, cropped."

Donald Trump’s ascendency to the GOP nomination in 2016 baffled all the reporters. They’ve been tethered and cropped.

"Uh oh, overflow, population, common group but it’ll do."

Trump says the refugee/illegal alien population is overflowing into america. It’s a common group but it’s enough to do [deep damage to America]

"Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed"

Trump says we should look out for ourselves “America” — the world serves ITS own needs while America’s heartland is bleeding.

"Six o’clock — TV hour. Don’t get caught in foreign towers. Slash and burn, return."

Obviously a reference to 9/11. Trump keeps “returning” to this reference over and over again, telling Americans not to get caught in foreign affairs. That being said, he wants to return to the middle east and slash and burn it in revenge.

"Birthday party,"

Donald Trump was born June 14, 1946. As part of his “birthday party”, in May the other GOP candidates dropped out and in July he was nominated as the GOP candidate.

"cheesecake,"

Refers to Trump’s opinion of women.

"jelly beans, boom!"

The GOP was also party of Reagan, who loved jelly beans. That GOP has imploded (gone “boom”) under trump.

If you're on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this administration to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts

No, no, no, no you are not alone­
