The Smiths Just Ripped Into Donald Trump With This Secret Record Message

Trump will kill America.

We all know Morrissey to be a liberal, left-wing, opinionated vegetarian, so it makes sense that he would give his two cents on the whole ‘Trump as POTUS’ saga.

Fans who bought The Smiths’ recent limited edition 7-inch on this year’s Record Store Day (22nd April) discovered the band’s crystal clear message etched on the vinyl:

Trump will kill America.

There’s no arguing with that. Featuring two previously unreleased tracks, the record was an exclusive UK release, despite the fact that the message is distinctly aimed at America. The A-side is a demo mix of The Boy With the Thorn in his Side, while the B-side includes an early Drones Studios version of Rubber Ring.

It wasn’t long after fans started buying the record that they discovered the secret message:

What a touch. Although I highly doubt Trump is going to lose any sleep over it – he probably doesn’t even know who The Smiths are. For more music related Trump run-ins, check out the time Keith Richards pulled a knife on him.
