Lazy Weekend Music-Cry Me A River Edition

GOOD WEEKEND TO YOU WIDDERSHINS!
Another week has passed and yet even more disgusting stories about Trump have made the news. Not only have we learned he thought he could grab a woman by her genitalia, but he also felt free to try to get a woman to join him in the mile high club. Another one of the Trumpian tidbits is that he referred to Marlee Matlin as “retarded” when she appeared on his show Celebrity Apprentice.
Trump, who was accused on Wednesday of making sexual comments to Marlee Matlin, an Oscar-winning actress who once competed on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, also apparently had a habit of insulting, mimicking, and demeaning as mentally handicapped his star female contestant—all because she was deaf.
In 2011, Matlin, who is still the only deaf actor or actress to win an Academy Award for best actress, appeared on Trump’s NBC reality-TV series. By the end of the season, she had come in second place and earned her fair share of compliments from Trump in the aired footage. But according to three longtime staffers who worked on Matlin’s season of Celebrity Apprentice, Trump would regularly disrespect the actress and would even treat her as if she were mentally disabled.
I’m not totally sure who we should be crying a river for: we Americans for having to hear about all of this, the people who were the objects of his attacks and insults, or the Republicans who are getting their much deserved desserts for allowing this to grow in their body politic, with this foul fruit being the result. It will be extremely difficult to rid themselves of this and will be their legacy for some time to come. Nah, to hell with the last one.
So along those lines let’s look at some songs about crying, tears, anything along those lines. Now we all know some songs involving those things. Here are mine.
(1) As Tears Go By ~ Marianne Faithfull
(3) Lonely teardrops ~ Jackie Wilson
(4) Tears of a Clown ~ Smokey Robinson and the The Miracles
(5) There’ll be no teardrops tonight ~ Tony Bennett
(6) Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall ~ Coldplay
(7) Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain ~ Willie Nelson (who else but??)
