The song was recorded before the pandemic so I don't believe it was initially purposefully about Trump. But with how things progressed I can see how the narrative fits - or at least that's how the Residents put it. A

I'm sure if BF objected to it being about Trump he would have said, and as others have said he has been more active on twitter about this.

Besides, you can put your own interpretation to it as in most of his work. To be honest I find a song like The Last Stand of Shazeb Andleeb to be far more political than this.

I don't care for this song or for my favorite musicians becoming topical and political; I'll be staying away from this!

Wow, what a great surprise to hear this. Anyone else think this could very easily fit onto the Golem?

Holy smokes! This is brutal! Awesome!

I had a bad reaction to your public hobby writings.

Love it.

A primitive (in the good sense of the word) statement. Also, in terms of content/message more layered and subtle than a first listen might suggests.

I can't say that I love the song on the first listen, nothing to do with the subject matter. But the man can still belt. Glad to see it happened.

Thanks for the write-up on the home page Cult - I may have otherwise missed this!

BF has been very vocal on Twitter about Trump and his mishandling of the crisis.

In any case nice song.

Thanks! Very political (especially by FBF's standards).

In all fairness, the article states that the song was recorded before the pandemic took hold.

It was likely the Residents idea to position the video as anti-Trump propaganda long after FBF made his contribution to the recording.

I would like to think they ran their plan by him first for approval just to be decent fellows (since he will of course be associated with whatever fallout or negative reaction they may receive), but it could very well be that they were not technically obliged to do so.

This is not to say that I think FBF would disagree with the thrust of the video's implications, but more an acknowledgement that, as has been stated above, he usually is more circumspect and guarded about publicly expressing any overtly political opinions, especially in conjunction with his songs and/or recordings.

Thanks! Just saw it this morning.
