Veteran post-punk band Gang of Four mocks Ivanka Trump on their upcoming release, “Complicit.”

The band will feature a photograph of President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter and White House adviser on the new EP, which is due for release on April 20, reported Pitchfork.

Ivanka Trump is also name-checked on the EP’s second song, “Ivanka (Things You Can’t Have).”

“When we think of ‘the media,’ everyone has lots of ideas about what we mean,” said band member Andy Gill, explaining their decision. “It could be social media, where hundreds of memes criss-cross the world; informing, misinforming, beginning or reinforcing ideas that may last a lifetime and beyond. Ideas about Jews, Muslims, or, say, the world trade centre or perhaps, the criminality of certain American politicians. And then there is the receding traditional media with disappearing jobs like ‘journalists’ and ‘fact checkers.’ That’s the media the Trump family despise.”

Donald Trump is living breathing proof of the truism that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Such an outcome is made even more dangerous when the person in question has shown himself to be mentally unwell.

Two weeks ago, the Republican Party crowned Donald Trump a de facto king and dictator through his show trial and "acquittal" in the U.S. Senate. Trump and his regime's enforcers, agents, sycophants and other minions have taken that travesty as permission to launch a full-on assault on the rule of law, the Constitution, democracy and the American people.
