Pet Shop Boys troll Donald Trump with a new song: “Give Stupidity a Chance”

The Pet Shop Boys aren’t usually all that political, but they have been known to offer some opinions. Back in 2006, they attacked Tony Blair with a song called “I’m With Stupid.” And if you want to go back to the early 80s, “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)” was perceived as a shot at the Conservative policies of Margaret Thatcher.

Now they have a new track called “Give Stupidity a Chance,” which takes a swipe at Donald Trump and Michael Gove a pro-Brexit UK conservative politician. Please enjoy.
