For many of us Americans, the Trump Presidency is like a hellish nightmare we can’t wake up from, at least for another four years. That said, what can make this nightmare more bearable is a good laugh or two. Lucky for us, society, artists and the music industry in particular, has provided us with many lighthearted moments to carry us through.
There are those nervous laughs, like when your car just broke down on the side of the road and you’re in the middle of nowhere and you’re completely fucked, which some might have experienced the morning after the election, and then there are those laugh out loud moments, like when that ugly Trump troll doll was on a tour of the country. To help everyone through this crazy time we’re in, the Trump jokes Mixmag has outlined here are more of the latter.
From parody music videos, fake press releases and cease and desist letters from the President himself, here are the 10 ways Trump has been trolled by dance music.

With a Soundcloud bio that reads “MAKE HOUSE GREAT AGAIN” it’s clear that whoever is behind the Trumpin Tracks project is in it for the right reasons. Although at first glance one might think the music coming from this candidate is a joke, a closer inspection finds hard hitting, gritty acid house and techno aimed directly at the dancefloor. Tracks like ‘Ghetto Trump’, ‘Trump Dat’, ‘Feel My Trumpin' Bass’ and ‘Trump That Body’ standout as gems of the underground. Now as a limited edition vinyl release surfaces, this project is officially huge, and I mean HUGE!
