Hoodwinked!

Description
A day after the 2016 election, I needed some comfort food. I went to Mcdonalds. As I ate my quarter pounder, a man in his mid 40s who worked there cleaning tables came by. As he did his work, he was declaring that Donald Trump was going to fix everything, don't you worry. I thought to myself that Trump had pulled off a real coup, getting people to believe him.
Later that day, I was channel surfing on TV and stumbled on a scene from the film "Malcolm X" with Denzel Washington.. It was a scene where he was making a speech in Harlem, and he said that the people had been "hoodwinked."
something clicked.

Lyrics
We've been hoodwinked,
My friend we've been hoodwinked
Bamboozled, run amuck and led astray
And now we're cryin'
Cause he was lyin'
When he promised us a new and brighter day
la la la la
My friend,we're grievin'
He was deceivin'
He said those things to get us in his pocket
We were mistaken, and we got taken
He's not here to drain the swamp, just to restock it

We have to own it
We should have known it
And even if those dreams might all come true
There might be pleasure,
And lots of treasure,
But only for his friends, and that's NOT you

Ah,we've been hoodwinked,
My friend we've been hoodwinked
A guy who'd lie like that is just a jerk
But he was slummin'
And saw us comin'
Have you never watched a used car salesman work?

Ah,we've been hoodwinked,
My friend we've been hoodwinked
He promised as he put us at our ease:
as chief of state
He'd make us great
He'll make us great, but just like grated cheese
There is one blessin'
we've learned a lesson
And he taught us himself what is required
If we are strong,
Before too long
We'll get to to tell him, "Donald boy, you're fired!"
