Watch Will. i. am. Mock Donald Trump In Spoof 'Grab Em By The Pu$$Y'

In Grab Em By The Pu$$y, the music video addresses everything from police brutality to the education system and incarceration problem. "What you gone do about the war in Afghanistan? What you gone do when they kill another Black man?" And while some may find the video funny, the issues Will. I. Am speaks on are very real.

Towards the end of the video, Will. i. Am. transitions into a serious call-to-action asking viewers to seriously consider not voting for Donald Trump. "Okay, it's obvious. I don't look like Donald Trump." He continues, "But what's more obvious is that Donald Trump doesn't look like the president of America." 

Will. i. Am. also goes on to remind us, that although this seems like a joke, this is really America in 2016. "If this was a tv show, maybe I would watch it. It would be pretty funny. If it was a movie, I would probably spend my money to go and see this circus of a show. But this is not a circus, a tv show or a movie. This is real life, with real life problems." As Obama's term comes to an end, it's great to see more celebrities stepping up to use their voice, but will it make a difference at the polls?
