Marxist Paul McCartney writes song against Trump

Paul McCartney revealed in a recent interview that he took aim at President Trump in his new solo album, dubbing him the “mad captain” in one of his songs.

During an interview with BBC published Thursday, the former Beatles bandmate said he took swipes at several climate-change deniers, including Trump, in a track, titled “Despite Repeated Warnings,” on his new album, “Egypt Station,” which was released earlier this month.

The track includes verses like “despite repeated warnings of dangers up ahead, the captain won’t be listening to what’s been said” and “those who shout the loudest, may not always be the smartest.”

McCartney told the BBC that he made the track to “basically say, ‘occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg [despite] being warned it’s not a cool idea.’” HILL
