A graphic, violent parody video depicting Pres. Trump shooting, stabbing and assaulting a church full of his media and political rivals has drawn fire from one of the musical acts whose music soundtracks the clip. The video was reportedly shown during a pro-Trump political conference at the president's Trump National Doral Miami golf club in Florida last week.
A spokesperson for Lynyrd Skynyrd confirmed in a statement to Billboard that the group had not authorized the use of their signature song "Freebird" in the nearly four-minute video that appears to use doctored footage from 2014's Kingsman: The Secret Service in order to depict Trump murdering reporters and anchors from CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Buzzfeed, PBS, Politico and many other media organzations using a handgun and a knife inside the so-called "Church of Fake News." The mock rampage also shows Trump attacking, striking and killing such political rivals as former Pres. Barack Obama, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, late Sen. John McCain, Sen. Bernie Sanders and a member of Black Lives Matter. The video ends with a smiling Trump putting the head of a CNN reporter on a stake.
