The Life & Times of Donald J. Trump: A Feature Film Set to Pink Floyd’s The Wall

On Sunday night, Roger Waters made his feelings for Donald Trump plenty clear before a crowd of 80,000 at Desert Trip (aka Oldchella). A giant pig, emblazoned with the words “Divided We Fall,” hovered over the concertgoers. The words “Trump is a Pig” flashed on a screen a football field-wide. As did some pretty unflattering images (my pix) of the divisive candidate. You can watch the scene play out below.

When I got home from the show, somewhere around 2 am, the video above was waiting in my inbox. “Here’s Donald Trump’s The Wall, a brand new feature film covering the life and times of Donald J. Trump set to the album The Wall by Pink Floyd.” I took it as a sign from the political gods.

If you’re a regular OC reader, you know that mashup artists regularly turn to Pink Floyd for their soundtracks. Remember Dark Side of the Rainbow, where Pink Floyd scores The Wizard of Oz?  This time around, the 1979 concept album The Wall provides the musical accompaniment. It’s not a random pick, of course, seeing that Donald has promised to wall off America from the rest of the world.
