Prison Radio
Mumia Abu-Jamal

I didn’t see this coming. The words I never thought I’d say, “president Trump,” had become reality. In a remarkable campaign full of bile, hatred, fear and loathing, guess what? Fear won. Hatred now gulps a glass of champagne.

This campaign has been marked by scenes we have never seen before, by words we’ve never heard said on TV or radio, by screams about a rigged system, folks! When a billionaire shouts about a rigged system, you better believe it, cause it is, but in his favor, not against him.

Donald Trump has received billions of dollars in free cable and media coverage which listed his campaign from farce into solidity. After every campaign stopped, the strains of a song, “You can’t always get what you want,” was heard. It is now clear: you can’t.

Today, a new day, dawns on America as a curtain falls over the Obama presidency and Clintonism.

From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
