The Teflon President: Our 10 Favorite Ronald Reagan Lyrical References

#7. Ice-T “Squeeze The Trigger” (1987)


Lyric: “We buy weapons to keep us strong/Reagan sends guns where they don’t belong/The controversy is thick and the drag is strong/But no matter the lies, we all know who’s wrong.”
Complex says: In the Iran-Contra Affair, Ronald Reagan lied about facilitating arms deals with Iran to fund the Contra rebels in Nicaragua. Never tight-lipped, Ice-T spoke for hoods across America when he grew tired of the lies. Afterwards, Ice-T went back to pimping bitches and doing good deeds. Meanwhile Reagan continued work on Operation: Fuck Up The Hood and avoided impeachment. Hey, they didn’t call him the Teflon President for nothing.
