“Jesus Is My Vaccine” – Paddy’s protest song about the plague doctor in the White House

Like millions of people around the world Drogheda’s rock and rolling solicitor, Paddy Goodwin, is disgusted by the antics of US President Donald Trump, especially his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

So, he has written a song about it and, along with his band the Holy Ghosts and friend and collaborator Enda Whyte, they have made a fantastic video made from clips of news footage featuring the bungling liar that is the current first citizen of the US and his supporters.

“Donald Trump is absolutely hideous” Paddy told Drogheda Life. “He’s behaving like the plague doctors in the middle ages who played a significant part in spreading, rather than curing, the plague.

“It sickens me to see the millions of people in the US taking his advice rather than listening to the doctors. Certainty ignorance was a significant problem both then and now...

Paddy was going to call his song “The Plague Doctor’s Delight” but in the end he plumped for “Jesus is My Vaccine” which he got from one of the placards being carried by a Trump follower in the video.   

Paddy is no stranger to writing protest songs, previously he has lambasted Boris Johnson for his stance on Brexit and, of course, the DUP.

Paddy thanked Enda Whyte for putting the video together, Conor Casby for the Artwork and Jason Varley for Soundness...

“Jesus is My Vaccine” will be available on Spotify very soon, in the meantime, here’s the video:
