Pearl Jam Depict Dead Donald Trump on Poster

Pearl Jam Bassist Jeff Ament on stage in Missoula MT

This is disgusting and Democrat Jon Tester seems perfectly OK with it. Tester should apologize to @realDonaldTrump & the people of Montana.

The National Republican Senate Committee compared the artwork to an infamous photo of American comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake decapitated head of the United States president, which cost her a contract with CNN and led to several of her shows being cancelled. The poster featured President Donald Trump lying dead near a burning White House, drawing controversy from Republicans and Conservatives across the country. Jon Tester in Montana. "We're at a tipping point and it's time for action". Tester is flying above the fray on a tractor while his opponent, Montana Senate Republican candidate Matt Rosendale, is depicted with a lobster claw and holding a sign that reads "Maryland".

For Pearl Jam's show in Missoula, Montana this past Monday night, bassist Jeff Ament cooked up a real doozy of a poster with the artist Bobby Draws Skulls. "It's time for [Tester] to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism!".

The poster was released shortly before the band's Monday show and done "in support of Tester, a Democrat serving the Treasure State who is seeking his third term in the US Senate", Pitchfork reported. Russian money, golf courses, hookers? "Maryland Matt. Stars and Stripes as flames".

"Political posters and images have always been really provocative", he said.

Pearl Jam are on the receiving end of a hefty dose of criticism right now, with some fans opposed to their new tour poster which depicts the death of Donald Trump.

Hours later, Chris Meagher, a spokesman for Tester, said the campaign did not have input into the poster's design and did not approve of it.

People getting offended over a cartoon versus the real-life injustices that have been going on the past two years probably don't remember Eddie Vedder taking a knee in solidarity with National Football League players or that, y'know, Pearl Jam are bigtime Rock the Vote supporters, which champions otherwise undecided ballot-casters to get out there, make a difference and prevent someone like Donald Trump from ever getting in the position he is in again.
