Donald Trump’s claim that it’s a “scary time for men,” because of Brett Kavanaugh’s sex assault allegations, was mocked by singer Lynzy Lab Stewart in a song that captures the absurdity of the president’s statement.
The song is going viral in a YouTube video. It laments all the things that women can’t do because of fears about being sexually assaulted.
She finishes the ditty, picked on a ukulele, with an appeal for people to vote.
Trump made the claim during an impromptu news conference while addressing the sexual assault and other misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.
“It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of,” Trump said. “This is a very, very — this is a very difficult time. What’s happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice.”
Stewart, a dancer and singer-songwriter responded with “A Scary Time.” She sings:
“I can’t walk to my car late at night on the phone,
I can’t open my windows when I’m home alone,
I can’t go to a bar without a chaperone,
I can’t wear a mini-skirt if it’s the only one I own.
I can’t use public transportation after 7 pm.”
During the 2016 campaign, 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women over the course of his career. Trump claims all 15 are lying. He’s being sued for defamation by several of the women.
In an open-mic conversation that’s come to be known as the “Access Hollywood tape,” Trump bragged about assaulting women. “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” he said.
Stewart told HuffPost she created the song after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday.
