Plenty of artists have dedicated their music to deriding and mocking Donald Trump since he entered the presidential race, but we’ve yet to hear a tune from the horse’s mouth, until now…sort of.

Naturally, due to his busy tweeting schedule, President Trump doesn’t have the time to craft a song dedicated to his tweets. Thankfully, HATEIOHEAD, “a collective of creative citizens who are saddened and embarrassed by the idiocy of our current government and its moronic leader,” have stepped in to reimagine the Radiohead classic “Creep” from the perspective of an animated Trump.

Through its four-plus minutes, “Tweet” covers the Trump basics: sexually assaulting women, keeping “rapist” immigrants out of the United States, feelings of white supremacy, blaming one’s problems on “crooked” Hillary, golfing vacations, and destroying the EPA. Here are the lyrics to the first chorus:

“I will tweet / I’ll distract you (Rosie O’Donnell has AIDS) / Don’t you see what I’m doing here? (it’s the art of the deal) / Obama’s not born here (he’s from Kenya, look it up) / We don’t care who we hurt.”

If this isn’t intriguing enough for you to give “Tweet” a spin, let it be known that Russian President Vladimir Putin is portrayed as a buff, shirtless centaur. Watch the video below:
