Donald Trump Got “Pitch-Slapped” by Hillary Clinton Supporters
Elizabeth Banks showed her support for Hillary Clinton in this star-studded rendition of "Fight Song"—inspired by Pitch Perfect, of course.
Several of Hollywood's biggest stars got together to create a stunning version of Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" in honor of presidnetial nominee Hillary Clinton. "My friends and I, we believe in this idea of 'Stronger Together,' we believe in Hillary Clinton. So we made something for her," actress Elizabeth Banks said of the capella song she produced.
The DNC released the star-studded video on their YouTube channel. In a statement to People, they said, "'Fight Song' has been energizing Clinton supporters at events around the country throughout the campaign, and reinforces Clinton's proven record of fighting for all Americans and her commitment to tackling the big challenges we face as a country as president."
The video features dozens of celebs singing in honor of Hillary, including Rachel Platten, America Ferrera, Ben Platt, Eva Longoria, Idina Menzel, T.R. Knight, Kristin Chenoweth, and Sia.
Outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter Elizabeth Banks also served as the hostess for the Democratic National Convention, and she took the stage to the tune of Queen's "We Are The Champions," mocking Donald Trump's entrance earlier last month at the Republican National Convenion in Ohio.
Queen later objected to Trump's use of the song, saying they did not give him permission:
An unauthorised use at the Republican Convention against our wishes – Queen

Banks continued to burn the Republican presidential nominee, saying, "Some of you know me from The Hunger Games in which I play Effie Trinket, a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia." Sound familiar?
"So when I tuned into [the RNC in] Cleveland last week, I was like, 'Uh, hey. That's my act!'"
Does this mean that Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson will make a song dedicated to Trump? We can only hope.
