A disgusting poster that depicts a dead President Trump with the White House up in flames was used to advertisement for an event for Montana Democrat, Senator Jon Tester.
The poster was originally created as advertisement for a Pearl Jam concert and used to push for Tester’s re-election. Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale described the poster as “reprehensible.”
On Pearl Jam’s verified Twitter page, there was a tweet posted on Tuesday that read, “Official artwork by Jeff Ament and Bobby Brown from last night’s show in Missoula.
#TheAwayShows #Rock2Vote,” and in a set of photos, you can see the finished product as well as the image in draft mode.
The sketch included notes that read in part, “D.C. burning…Tester Evil Keneval on tractor over the cesspool below..Russian money, golf courses, hookers?” It continued, “Y’aw know the deal. We’re at a tipping pint and it’s time for action. Jon Tester is the real deal and nobody cares more about our country and especially Montana. So here we are…this was a fun collab with one of my favorite artists, Bobby Draws Skulls. He killed it!,” signed Jeff Ament. The collaboration was with artist Bobby Brown, the “Bobby” mentioned in the sketch.
The artist behind the poster is Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, who is an outspoken supporter of Montana Senator Jon Tester, having been friends with Tester for many years and associated with Tester’s campaigns in the past.

There were several replies to the tweet, one from @BKDaKing2 who noted that not all fans of Pearl Jam agreed with their political views. “A burning White House with flames pouring out of the widows? I don’t care if you say it’s “art” and I know you probably don’t care – but you should be ashamed of releasing something like this. Not all of your fans agree with your political narratives.”

It’s unclear if Tester had any input into the actual design of the poster and Tester has not made any public statement regarding the violent images seen on the poster.
In a statement to Breitbart News, spokesman for Matt Rosendale said:
“Once again, Jon Tester has shown he will stand with the far-left over Montanans. This poster from Pearl Jam is disgusting and reprehensible. It depicts a dead President Trump and a burning White House. It’s time for Jon Tester to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism.”
The poster, which was a collaboration between Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and Bobby Draws Skullz, depicts an apocalyptic Washington, D.C., with the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial decayed and on fire. In the center of the poster is the skeleton of President Trump, with his hair intact, reaching for a briefcase emblazoned with the communist hammer and sickle, while an eagle feeds on his carcass.
Over the White House, Sen. Tester is cheerfully flying over President Trump’s dead body on a tractor with clouds that spell out, “vote.”
Montana Senate Republican candidate Matt Rosendale is depicted with a lobster claw and waving a flag that says, “Maryland.”
Ament is a “proud” supporter of Sen. Tester; the two have been friends for years, and Pearl Jam frequently comes to Montana to hold get-out-the-vote campaigns for Sen. Tester’s re-election campaigns.
With the White House up in flames, a deceased President Donald Trump is laid out on the front lawn. The image shows hair still attached to the skull of the dead president, a bald eagle gnaws on his ankle and he’s clutching onto a briefcase emblazoned with a hammer and sickle.
The party that claims to be the most tolerant has proven time and again they’re anything but. The hatred that they have for Trump is disturbing and often turns violent.
Democrats continue to push violence and intolerance towards Trump supporters, on a daily basis. Whether it’s Dems calling to harass those who support Trump anytime they’re seen in public spaces, violent images such as Kathy Griffin’s career ending photo of her holding the bloody, decapitated head of President Trump, or anti-Trump protesters who are always the aggressors when they show up to demonstrations. Their hatred is vile and unwavering.
