Pussy Riot Blasts Donald Trump in Music Video for ‘Make America Great Again’ Song (Video)

The Russian feminist punk band will also release an EP about the political climate titled “xxx”

Pussy Riot has released a music video for the song “Make America Great Again,” in which they slam Donald Trump and his policies.

“No more Muslims! No more Mexicans!” a news anchor yells as the music video opens with footage from Trump’s rallies. Throughout the video, policemen with blonde hair similar to that of Trump arrest people deemed “non-American.”

Women are branded with the words “outsider” and “fat pig.” Gay or lesbian people are branded with the word “pervert.”

Toward the end of the video, a woman gets beaten, tortured and raped while some of Trump’s rally comments flash across the screen. In the end, the police officers kill the woman because the “American dream is dead.”

“The point was to show that Trump’s words are not just words,” the group’s co-founder, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, told Time. “Those words lead to violence, which is why they were burned into my body.”

The video for “Make America Great Again” was produced in May, directed by Jonas Akerlund.

After releasing “Organs” and “Straight Outta Vaginas” earlier this week, the Russian feminist punk band also announced an EP titled “xxx,” due out Friday. The EP will include three songs touching on the current political climate.
