Anti-Trump GOP group The Lincoln Project has made its own music video for Demi Lovato’s song “Commander in Chief,” during which she repeatedly criticizes the president.
In the 3-minute video released Tuesday, the “Never Trump” coalition plays the song against a montage depicting a chaotic America roiled by forest fires, children detained at the border, COVID-19 hospitalizations and Black Lives Matter protests.
“#CommanderInChief… Honestly… If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep,” the Lincoln Project says in the description of the video on YouTube. “Demi Lovato put it best. That’s why we’re proud to present this new music video for #CommanderInChief.”
“This video has left me absolutely speechless… thank you @ProjectLincoln for this #CommanderInChief video” Lovato said on Twitter. “This perfectly spotlights where our country is at in 2020. We deserve better as a nation.”
I’m so inspired by everyone that is making noise in their communities, submitting their ballots early and taking this pandemic seriously. If we all do our part, we can make a change. I believe in us…
