Tom Green taunts Trump with 'Do The Donald' rap

Donald Trump may have fired Tom Green — but now the comedian is firing back.

Green, who met Trump on set of The Celebrity Apprentice, can scarcely believe his former TV boss is a serious presidential candidate. Wearing a wig and a deadpan expression, the Canadian comedian tears into Trump in The Donald: a new Funny or Die rap video released today. 

The clean version of the catchy tune makes its international radio debut on our show. Plus, Green joins guest host Rachel Giese to explain the serious message behind the song, and why he doesn't actually think Trump's "shockingly ignorant" statements are something to laugh off. 

"We're rewarding bad behaviour in our society. We are in a situation now where if you say something negative, that information travels faster," says Green.

"If you say something bigoted, and you're a presidential candidate ... everybody has to talk about it. The outrage is actually what's been promoting his candidacy."
