Donald Trump just got schooled on his twin obsessions–Putin and Pussy–in a new video by Russia’s version of nasty women, the feminist, all-girl band Pussy Riot. The song hits home, where Trump and everyone else ultimately comes from… and it ain’t Virginia.

The group, composed of 11 rotating members, focuses on feminism, LGBT rights and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom they consider a dictator.

U.S. Intelligence agencies have charged that Putin is attempting to influence the U.S. presidential election by allowing Russian agents to hack into private email accounts of Democratic party officials.

Thousands of embarrassing unverified missives have been released on the Internet through Wikileaks.

Trump has consistently refused to say anything other than compliments about the Russian president during his campaign, even though it’s hurt him at the polls.

The GOP candidate has said he would consider recognizing Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and re-examine the U.S. role in NATO, a bulwark against Russian aggression in Europe since World War II.

He also praised Putin as strong leader “unlike what we have in this country,” according to Newsweek magazine.

Pussy Riot would strongly beg to differ. They’ve had first-hand experience with the autocratic leader.

The group is known for staging unauthorized concerts and taping music videos to protest Putin’s policies. The videos have been posted on the Internet, irking Russian officials.

In 2012, three band members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich, were arrested for staging a show in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior to protest its support of Putin.

They were convicted of “hooliganism” and sentenced to jail, drawing worldwide protests that embarrassed the Putin government.

Trump has also been under fire for his crude, misogynistic remarks from a 2005 “hot mic” conversation. He talked about celebrity entitlement and how it enabled him to “grab women by the pussy” without repercussions.

Since then, a dozen women have come forward with their experiences about being groped or sexually assaulted by Trump during his business career.

The band’s song is a paean to the place where even the pussy grabber in chief comes from…”Straight Outta Vagina.”

“This song could be considered an answer to Trump,” said Pussy Riot’s Tolokonnikova, who was imprisoned in Russia over the 2012 incident.

“But I believe the idea of powerful female sexuality is much bigger than any populist megalomaniac man … Vagina is bigger than Trump,” she told the UK’s Guardian newspaper.
