    Maybe Rat has more children than Donald Trump, so he has more people to throw under the bus.

    You, who are on the road Must have a code that you can live by And so, become yourself Because the past is just a goodbye

    Teach your children well Their father’s hell did slowly go by And feed them on your dreams The one they pick’s the one you’ll know by …

    Thank you Crosby Still, Nash & Young.
