• Singer Macy Gray: ‘All I Want for Christmas’ Is Gun Control, Free Healthcare, Legal Pot, No Trump

    Macy Gray released a music video this week for an updated version of the song All I Want for Christmas in which the singer defends President Obama’s record in office, takes a shot Donald Trump and calls for the legalization of marijuana, free health care, gun control and increased attention to climate change.

    “All I want for Christmas is a whole buncha stuff/But anything that you can buy me won’t be enough . Cuz everything I’m hoping for is intangible/Like free health care and gun control,” a cartoon Gray sings in the video while meandering through a colorful winter wonderland.

    “All I want for Christmas is to have a chance/So please take care of the environment,” a children’s chorus sings.

    “Take Mr. Gore more seriously/And do what you can to stop global warming,” Gray continues. “No matter what they say, Barack, you did real good/I hope that your successor does the things he or she should. That Mr. Trump, he’s an entertaining guy/But let’s face it, really is he qualified?”

    Gray explained an interview with the Daily Beast that her new song is about much more than just spreading Christmas cheer and warned Americans to be weary of Trump.

    “This song is about saving the world and there’s a lot of people leaning in [Trump’s] direction, and I just want them to think about that before they vote,” Gray said. “You might find Trump entertaining, and it’s seductive when you can’t wait to hear someone share their way-out-of-the-box ideas, but you’ve got to work your way up. You at least have to be a mayor or something!”

    “He knows how to work the media, but I don’t think that will make him a good president,” she added of Trump. “I’m a fan of immigration. I understand that there has to be harsher screening considering everything that’s going on, but Trump is talking about doing things like building walls, and that’s such an ancient idea.”
