See why Donald Trump will hate Jussie Smollett’s powerful new music video ‘F.U.W.’

It’s a safe bet Donald Trump won’t be playing Empire star Jussie Smollett’s new song at The White House.

The openly gay singer and actor’s new song F.U.W. (stands for Fucked Up World) blasts all that the controversial US president seems to stand for.

F.U.W. touches on human and LGBT rights, religious and racial prejudice and various injustices.

At one point the song asks: ‘Why we back in the past? It’s the same script, different cast. All these alternative facts.’

He also mentions Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote in the 2016 election. Trump won more electoral votes.

Smollett asks: ‘Why’s it to hard to keep up hope? Who got that popular vote? Was the whole thing just a joke?’

In one scene, a man in a wheelchair runs over a Donald Trump mask.

‘That mask is a representation of this false idea of patriotism,’ Smollett tells the Associated Press.

‘And that mask is a representation of this idea of white male privilege. It’s so much bigger than him. It’s what he represents, and it’s because of that representation, that’s why he’s the president of the United States currently.

‘It’s our opportunity to take those masks off and shatter them, so that’s what I did.’

    I fell in love with Jussie Smollett when I first saw him on Empire. Such a beautiful man and a great message. Thanks for featuring him often, Greg. He’s an asset to the LGBT community and its youth.
