Impeach the President ~ Vid of the (Election) Day

Back in the early 1970s, Tricky Dicky Nixon was every bit the crook he adamantly claimed not to be. Consequently, he was facing down the all too real prospects of both House impeachment and Senate conviction. Only his fight or flight political instincts, favoring the latter, spared him the Constitutional ouster / indignity he truly deserved.

Seeing how its composer, Roy Charles Hammond (a.k.a. Roy C), was / is quite the savvy lyricist, he had intentionally kept the lyrics sufficiently ambiguous to extend this song’s shelf-life. Indeed, this song does translate well into our Trumpian times.
