*Will.i.am is the latest artist to come for Donald Trump and his so-called “locker room talk” in song.
A week after hot-mic audio from a 2005 Access Hollywood interview revealed presidential hopeful Donald Trump talking about grabbing and kissing women without their consent, will.i.am gets fully into character as “Donald T. Rump” for the new Funny or Die music video for “Grab’m by the Pussy.”
The Black Eyed Peas frontman — joined by singer Liane V as his female opponent and BEP group member apl.de.ap as a debate moderator — sports a wayward orange wig and oversized suit to rap the chorus: “I’m a star ’cause I made it/ I’m rich and I’m famous/ Donald Trump said to ‘grab’m by the pussy.'”
Will sheds his costume to get serious at the end. “OK, it’s obvious: I don’t look like Donald Trump,” he says. “But what’s more obvious is, Donald Trump doesn’t look like the president of the United States of America. Nor should he be.”
Meanwhile, Anthony Hamilton and the Hamiltones got in on the “grab em” mockery with their own soulful, down-home, folk creation, “He Will Grab You By the Pussy.”
Their serious appeal to viewers, however, comes before the rendition.
“The video you’re about to see is in no form or fashion degrading any women. We’re only repeating what Donald Trump said,” says a Hamiltone. “We feel like this, vote for Hillary Clinton.”
The quartet even filmed the performance in a tour bus (the scene of Trump’s original crime).
