Pussy Riot Spoof Trump in ‘Make America Great Again’ Video

By Annie Reuter

As the 2016 presidential election gets closer, Pussy Riot have put their own spin on the chaos with the video for their new song “Make America Great Again.” The Jonas Akerlund-directed video samples clips from Donald Trump’s rallies and shows what the band thinks could happen if he becomes president.

The clip begins with a news anchor for Trump News Network announcing that “billionaire and everybody’s favorite Donald Trump has won the presidential election.” The fanfare soon turns sour as riots break out and African-Americans are brutally beat by police.

Soon after, a Russian woman played by Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova is brought into a police department and branded an outsider. The video continues to follow Tolokonnikova imprisoned and tortured, satirizing what a Trump presidency might entail. Later, she is branded a pervert and shot and killed for trying to escape a visit to the doctor.

“Let other people in/ Listen to your women/ Stop killing black children/ Make America great again,” Pussy Riot sing.

“Make America Great Again” is the third track and video released this week from Pussy Riot’s new EP xxx, which comes out tomorrow (Oct. 28). The other songs are “Straight Outta Vagina” and “Organs,” which was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek.
