Green Day Exposes 'Zombie' Donald Trump In Scathing New Music Video

"Let freedom ring with all the crazies on parade, let them eat poison and it tastes like lemonade."

Green Day portrays President Donald Trump as a zombie-like creature in its new music video.

The punk rock band exposes POTUS as a monster in the official clip for the previously unheard “Back in the USA,” which the group shared online Thursday,

The video, released as part of the group’s promo for its new greatest hits album “God’s Favorite Band,” has been well received on Twitter:

It follows Green Day’s ripping of Trump in its “Troubled Times” video, released in January:
