Christopher Mason

Christopher MasonA somewhat eccentric British-American transplant, Christopher Mason describes himself as an author, journalist, photographer, singer-songwriter and television presenter. Cambridge University educated and an expert on the Sotheby’s-Christie’s price fixing scandal, Mason also performed a song in honour of Donald Trump at the launch of his board game, Trump: The Game, in 1988.

 

Donald Trump’s brought out a game

And you’ll never guess its name

It’s called Trump: The Game and it’s in the stores

And to buy it folks are breaking down the doors…

 

Big bucks will never see the same

After you’ve played Trump: The Game

If you should forget that Trump’s his name

You’ll see it 553 times in the game
