Fiona Apple Performs Anti-Trump Holiday Song at Standing Rock Benefit: Watch

Fiona Apple doesn't do live performances often nowadays, and she decided to make her most recent one very memorable. The artist sung an intense rendition of her "Christmas Song" that completely slams Donald Trump during Los Angeles' "We Rock With Standing Rock" benefit concert in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The incredible opening line "Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire" was met with a wave of applause, and Apple kept the momentum going by ending the performance with a passionate "Donald Trump, fuck you!" shout. She also sung her 1996 classic “Sleep To Dream" and covered The Brains’ 1978 new wave tune “Money Changes Everything."

The benefit (organized by TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone) also featured appearances from the rock band, Sky Ferreira, Moses Sumney, Kimya Dawson and Devendra Banhart. Below, watch artists like Third Eye Blind and Sir the Baptist react to Trump's election win:
