Finneas marked the “firing” of Donald Trump with his new song “Where the Poison Is,” which the singer released hours after the 2020 presidential election was called for President-elect Joe Biden.

“You’re fired,” Finneas tweeted, quoting Trump’s The Apprentice catchphrase; “Where the Poison Is” is critical of the soon-to-be-former administration and their handling of the coronavirus, with the accompanying visual showing a crumbling White House.

“When all my friends get sick it’s on the president/When all my friends get sick it’s on his government,” he sings on the chorus. “Take me to the place where the poison is/To put a face to what’s poisonous/To give him a little taste of his medicine/There’s a snake that thinks it’s the president.”

Finneas adds later on the gloomy track,”Once we put this all behind us/We get to go right back to school shootings in a climate crisis.”

In recent months, Finneas has also released topical new tracks like his protest anthem “What They’ll Say About Us” and the internet-dreading “Can’t Wait to Be Dead.”

On Saturday, following Biden’s win, Finneas’ sister Billie Eilish was among the many artists to take to social media to celebrate the victory.
