smithinjapan: I love that they need to wear masks. I would too, if I supported him. And before you go and say they wear masks anyway, notice how no unmasked groups are doing this.

Same J-idols (the Masked Girls), in Donald Trump shirts, with no masks:

Not sure if this is better or worse than the idol group that got in trouble for dressing like Nazis a while back.

Yeah... because when you lack real talent you go for any gimmick that will sell.

Just like Trump of Trump Hall himself.

I think the member in the mask with the sunglasses on is just adorable. And their political messaging is also spot on.

There is something as trying to hard. At least with Piko Taro you know what you are getting even if it is one dimensional.

This group will be Abe's opening act when he meets Trump next year. See we love you Trump! haha

Rather lame attempt to appear 'controversial'.

Sheer lunacy!!

Liking the Slipknot vibe, too.

Can't fault their logic in associating Trump with a horror story!

Dear Japan, once more, wtf? Sincerely, the rest of the world

They are promoting and normalize Trump's racist demagogue position...the worse is that they are probably in the age of voting...no wonder why this country is what it is now.

Dear Japan, again, for the love of God, please stop promoting this vile orange scrotum, thank you.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

I've had enough of the "Annoying Orange".

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Poor girls ...

Probably instructed to do so by their manager to get publicity, like the other idols with those nazi-looking uniforms. And it worked....again.

why to Japanese think they are American?

Japan! Feelin' the Love!

How do ideas like this get to an idol group in Japan?

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Those kids got no idea what they are displaying there.

Probably don't even understand what is written in "Ingurishu"!

Get an education and a (real) job and then lets talk again!

And I thought it couldn't get any more ridiculous.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

WHY?

6 ( +7 / -1 )

@sensei: That is a funny thought.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

the mask is Jason's from Friday the 13th. Not Trump's, but- close enough.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

..... Facepalm

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Please no more Trump

6 ( +10 / -4 )

The sad thing is that they probably have no idea what type of person he is other than the "next" orange president. They should do some research and find out how horrible he really is before they start wearing his damn cloths.

8 ( +12 / -4 )

Stop the madness! Enough danged idol groups. I bet they're masked because they are also members of other idol groups
