VIDEO: Donald Trump leser «Den giftige slangen»

USA/POLITIKK

Presidentkandidat i USA, Donald J. Trump, leste for en liten stund siden opp en sangtekst på nasjonal TV. Det var i forbindelse med at USA skulle ta inn tusenvis av syriske flyktninger i kjølvannet av de muslimske terrorangrepene i Europa og USA. Sangteksten heter "The Snake", eller "Slangen". Teksten handler om en kvinne som finner en forfrossen slange på veien og tar den med seg hjem. Kvinnen ønsker å redde slangen og gir ham både melk og honning foran peisen. Da kvinnen en dag kommer hjem fra jobb og holder slangen tett inntil seg, så biter slangen kvinnen. "Hvorfor bet du meg, du vet at bittet ditt er giftig", spør kvinnen. "Ti stille kvinne, du visste at jeg var en slange da du tok meg inn", svarte slangen.

Her er videoen med Trump i det han leser opp sangteksten:

Her er originalversjonen fremført av Al Wilson:

Teksten kan leses her:

On her way to work one morning
Down the path alongside the lake
A tender-hearted woman saw a poor half-frozen snake
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
«Oh well,» she cried, «I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you»
«Take me in oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman,» sighed the snake. She wrapped him up all cozy in a curvature of silk
And then laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk
Now she hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she’d taken in had been revived
«Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman,» sighed the snakeNow she clutched him to her bosom, «You’re so beautiful,» she cried
«But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died»
Now she stroked his pretty skin and then she kissed and held him tight
But instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite
«Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman,» sighed the snake»I saved you,» cried that woman
«And you’ve bit me even, why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die»
«Oh shut up, silly woman,» said the reptile with a grin
«You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
«Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman,» sighed the snake
