Earlier this week, White Stripes had gave fans a glimmer of hope when the band briefly reunited to deliver a strongly worded message to Donald Trump. The band responded to the Presidential candidates unauthorized use of “Seven Nation Army” in a campaign video.
“The White Stripes would like to unequivocally state that they have nothing whatsoever to do with this video,” they wrote. “They are disgusted by this association, and by the illegal use of their song,” said the Facebook post.
Meg and Jack White have once again rallied together again today, sharing on Facebook new anti-Trump merch. Playing off their song “Icky Thump” from the eponymously named album, the words “Icky Trump” are written on the front with the song’s lyrics on the back:
White Americans? What?
Nothing better to do?
Why don’t you kick yourself out?
You’re an immigrant too.
Who’s using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can’t be a pimp
And a prostitute too.
It’s unlikely The White Stripes will reunite for any new music or tours, but if think about this: if they did, we’d have the orange-stained buffoon to thank for it. You can buy a shirt through the Third Man Records website.
