To the tune of The Final Countdown by Europe



He’s our superhero
The real Iron Man
But one thing he’s lacking

President Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric toward the free press cannot become the new normal. NYFWA members stand with our fellow reporters. Journalists are not the enemy of the people. They are the people.
