Tituss Burgess has released a catchy political anthem blasting President Donald Trump.

“45,” featuring Daniel J. Watts, begins with a group of tuxedoed people with painted blue eyes over their eyelids dancing as if they are being controlled by a puppet master. Burgess and Watts are tied to pillars and trying to escape. Burgess can also be seen singing while in a straight jacket in a padded room.

“I’m so transfixed,” the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star sings. “He’s dumb as bricks. A magic show with no tricks.”

Burgess explained to Billboard that the song is a call to action.

“Our country is in a crisis,” Burgess says. “This man in power has put much of the U.S. under a sleeping spell that is slowly transforming into apathy from the rest of us. This song is a call to wake up and realize that this state we’re in can be changed and must be changed, as we the people are the hope and future of America.”
