Indie rockers The National may be from the same city as President Donald Trump, but they certainly don’t share the same values.
In a Friday night performance in Trump’s hometown of Queens, NY, the band covered The Ramones’ classic 1981 song “The KKK Took My Baby Away” — and before doing so, reportedly dedicated the song to Trump himself.

Last year, the band’s lead singer Matt Berninger jokingly compared Trump to Ronald McDonald.
