President Donald Trump has a new nickname, thanks to A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes and Anderson .Paak: President Agent Orange.
The group performed during the 2017 Grammy Awards and issued the following statement:
“I wanna thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all the evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States,” Busta Rhymes said a few minutes into his set with Tribe and .Paak. “I wanna thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban. Now, we come together!”
Agent Orange is the toxic herbicide used to strangle and destroy farmland during the Vietnam War. According to the US Department of Veteran Affairs, the chemical causes cancers, birth defects and several health complications that can be traced to Agent Orange exposure. The herbicide was inevitably banned in 1971.
