Funny, after posting the Black-Eyed Peas’ videos of Bebot exposing a bit of Filipino American history, will.i.am and apl.de.ap released a new video looking at a more contemporary issue — the presidential election.

You know it was hastily put together by Funny or Die because it talks about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recorded statements about women; his so-called “locker room” comments that that was revealed just last week.

The Black Eyed Peas leader — joined by BEP cohort, Filipino American apl.de.ap as a debate moderator — dons a bushy orange wig and ill-fitting suit to rap the chorus: “I’m a star ’cause I made it/ I’m rich and I’m famous/ Donald Trump said to ‘grab’m by the p—y.'”


The woman playing his female opponent, Madam Boss, is social media star Liane V (Valenzuela), a Filipina American from San Jose, California and now an L.A. resident. The multi-talented Liane has built her brand on social media to the tune of millions of followers. She sings, dances, writes songs and does exercise videos. Check out her Youtube channel or on Vine, where she has 4.6 million followers.

“I love everything I’m doing when it comes to being creative,” she says, “but music has and always will be my first passion. I’ve always been around it, and have grown into it. Through music I have even bigger plans, and that is to become an international artist. With continued effort and focus, along with the strong team behind me, I believe that’s going to happen.”
Like the real Hillary Clinton, Madam Boss doesn’t put up with her opponent’s B.S. She sings:

“I’m a woman and I’m strong / And don’t you forget it / Because I am intelligent / I’m somebody’s daughter / I’m somebody’s boss / I could be the next president / So give me the respect now!”

The parody on the recent presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton is meant to be funny but just in case you don’t get the message, will.i.am comes on at the end and says:

“Donald Trump does not look like the president of the United States of America, nor should he be. If this was a TV show, maybe I would watch it, it would be pretty funny … this is real life with real life problems.”
Mike drop.
