Russian Band Pussy Riot Releases Anti-Trump Music Video

Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot released a profanity-laden anti-Donald Trump parody music video Thursday, entitled, “Make America Great Again.”

The five-minute video stars the all-female band’s founding member Nadya Tolokonnikova, who is shown being arrested for apparently not “being American,” strip searched, branded with hot irons and left in a prison cell.

As the video shows several soundbites and scenes from Trump’s election campaign, all spliced to paint the Republican nominee in an unflattering light, the song’s politically charged lyrics can be heard loud and clear:

What do you want your world to look like?
What do you want it to be?
Do you know that a wall has two sides?
And nobody is free?
Did your mama come from Mexico
Papa come from Palestine
Sneaking all through Syria
Crossing all the border lines

Let other people in
Listen to your women
Stop killing black children
Make America Great Again

The YouTube version of the video, which has generated over 300,000 views, bears a caption that reads, “Because YOU decide elections and if we get together, we could blow this sh*t up, take action and reverse this erosion of rights. Because f*ck it.”

In February 2012, all five Pussy Riot band members staged a demonstration in a church in protest of Russian president Vladimir Putin and the Russian church and government. Tolokonnikova and two other members of the group were arrested, charged with “hooliganism,” and spent nearly two years in prison.

The Russian group also referenced Trump in the song “Straight Outta Vagina,” which was released earlier this week.

In a recent interview with NPR, Tolokonnikova said, “American politics influence the world politics.”

“In a lot of ways, [the U.S.] really interferes in other countries’ politics,” Tolokonnikova added. “I’m not discussing is it a good or bad thing, but it is a thing, so that’s why it will influence everybody else’s lives outside America.”
