U2’s animated clip for ‘Get Out Of Your Own Way’ has now been released, with two scenes in particular taking aim at the US President.
As a rainbow appears across the screen, a marching line of Klansmen are shown holding torches. Trump is then shown pulling the curtains open in the Oval Office, revealing the line of Klansmen marching past his window – a scene that is later repeated as Trump is shown signing documents at his desk.

Broken Fingaz Crew, who directed the video, said the clip “addresses the current political situation”.
“2017 for us was the year fascists worldwide felt confident enough to raise their heads again, encouraged by Trump and other world leaders, who use people’s fear to build more walls and segregation,” they said.
“The song is both a personal letter and a clarion cry to the global situation, and in the same way, we’ve combined our psychedelic pop style with political imagery; shot entirely analogue, using paper cut and stop motion animation techniques.”
Last night, Trump revealed the list of ‘winners’ of his inaugural ‘Fake News Awards’.
