This video dropped October 27, but editor Eric Argiro of bicoastal Union began work on Pussy Riot’s "Make America Great Again" in June, before the Access Hollywood tape, before Russia crashed the election, and before the Facebook launch of "Trump Tower Live". Directed by Jonas Akerlund, the video imagines the dark early days of a Trump presidency as an autocracy where dissident women are objectified, branded and abused, not necessarily in that order.

Not surprisingly, the clip combines documentary and original footage, foreshadowing Trump TV in the form of TNN (Trump News Network). News reports highlight Trump’s strongarm style and incitements to violence, as the President’s thugs engage in torture with impunity.
