There’s a new song inspired by Donald Trump’s recent and somewhat confusing trip to the White House bunker, and honestly? It’s catchy as hell.
On Monday, days after it was reported that Secret Service rushed the president to the White House bunker amidst D.C. protests, singer Courtney Jaye (@TropicalJaye) penned and performed the tune, titled, “Bunker Boy.”
Jaye shared a video of herself performing the song to social media, and on top of her gorgeous guitar playing and sweet-sounding vocals, the lyrics are truly something.
“Bunker Boy, don’t lie. You got scared and hid in the basement in the middle of the night,” Jaye sings. “You’re not so tough, no. It’s a sorry sight. So take your bible, shove it up your ass, and turn on the fucking lights.”
Jaye ends the song with the lyrics, “Bunker Boy, Bunker Boy, November’s coming and we hope you’re terrified, Bunker boy,” before taking a big exhale and letting out an exhausted eye roll. A real mood.
For those who haven’t been closely following Trump’s bunker saga, let’s recap.
On Friday night, hundreds of people gathered outside the White House gates to protest racism, police brutality, and the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25, after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes.
Reports stated that when protests escalated Friday night, Secret Service ushered Trump — along with Melania and their son Barron — to the underground presidential bunker, where they allegedly remained for nearly an hour.
After Trump received some backlash for retreating to the bunker amidst a national state of unrest, he said that he didn’t go to the bunker to get away from the protests, rather he was merely inspecting the bunker.
“I was there for a tiny, short little period of time,” Trump told Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Radio. He then stated his bunker visit was “more for an inspection,” and that he’d been been to the bunker previously. He said he’s gone “two and a half times,” whatever that means.
Trump’s bunker comments sounded a bit absurd to many people, including Jaye, which is why she decided to use the gift of song to hilariously call the president out on his suspicious story.
Jaye tweeted her video and made sure to tag Trump’s Twitter handle — and the song has been quite a hit since. At the time of writing this piece, Jaye’s tweet had more than 60,000 likes, and celebrities like Sophia Bush have even praised the blunt and catchy tune.
You are a national treasure.

Jaye is no stranger to writing songs about President Trump. On June 1, she also shared another potential hit, called “fuck this fucking president,” which has been viewed 174,000 times.
In it, Jaye shares her true feelings about the president, and urges people to get out and vote for the November election.
I only wish Jaye had been cranking out these political hits back in 2018, when former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was hiding in (or among) bushes. I bet “Bushes Boy” would have been a real banger.
