WATCH: Fox News carried the Freedom Girls at the Trump rally live
You can say this about the Trump Campaign – it never fails to surprise.
Social media has been buzzing over a performance by the “USA Freedom Kids” at a Trump rally in Pensacola Florida yesterday.
The ultra-patriotic jingle features three young girls in stars-and-stripes cheerleader-style outfits performing a song and dance to the tune of the WWI song Over There.
The lyrics have been changed to an ultra nationalistic pro-Trump message.
Cowardice / Are you serious? / Apologies for freedom— / I can’t handle this!
When freedom rings— / Answer the call! / On your feet! /Stand up tall! / Freedom’s on our shoulders. / USA!
Enemies of freedom /Face the music / Come on, boys—take ‘em down! /‘Cause the Donald Trump knows how / To make America great / Deal from strength or get crushed every time…
The video spread across the web like wildfire, and reaction has been swift with many calling the performance “creepy” or “disturbing.”
Some found the performance simply to be in bad taste.

Others found it reminiscent of the pomp and pageantry of North Korea.
Dear leader Trump Jong Un demands applause for Freedom kids and tremendous classy performance warning enemies of eminent crushing!!!

While still others saw darker overtones in the performance.

But not everyone hated the performance. Some took to Twitter following the rally to show their support for the kids performance.
