Turkeys aren't the only thing being roasted this holiday season! Fiona Apple continues to show just how creative she can get by transforming Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" classic into a scathing diss about Donald Trump. The singer opens with this brilliant line, "Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire as he keeps nipping at his foes," before digging into the President-elect's racist, homophobic and misogynistic views.

Highlights include, "Everybody knows some money and entitlement / Can help to make the season white" and "He’s got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh / And every working man is going to cry when they learn that Letch don’t care how you live or if you die." Hey Fiona, while you're at it can you grace us with a Mike Pence version as well?

Apple also uploaded the audio version to her Tumblr, complete with the full lyrics. Click here for that, and then watch artists like Third Eye Blind and Sir the Baptist react to Trump's election win:
