For her new music video DICKtator out Tuesday, the comedienne and her friends Princess Superstar, Mystigity, Andy Moraga, John Roberts, Selene Luna, Ian Harvie, Jackie Beat, and C. Fire Da Rambler dress up as notorious dictators throughout history all while comparing them back to The Donald.
We're talking everyone from Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini, to more recent world leaders like George W. Bush and Margaret Thatcher!

We can't even begin to express our heartbreak over the tragic situation in Paris.
Similarly to ourselves, many celebrities are horrified and sickened by the senseless terrorist attack.
Take a look at the heartsick and supportive tweets (below):
You go, Cho!
The comic has been very upfront regarding her own history with sexual abuse, so it's amazing to see her take her power back while uplifting young girls in the process.
And while the single may have a violent message on the surface, Margaret made sure to highlight the fact that the killing is simply a metaphor for being able to move on from such a traumatic experience, saying:
"I do not condone violence but cathartic rage has its place in art. I believe if you have been sexually abused, you must 'murder' your rapist in your mind. Abuse leads to self abuse, drug addiction, depression, eating disorders, suicide. I want to kill it before it kills me. I'm grateful to all the incredible artists who went into the creation of this song and video, especially the young people who lent their fierce fighting talents. I can see already that kids are building a better world than the one we are currently in."
More people should have her outlook on life!
We could not be more proud of how Margaret is using her platform to make the world a better place.

Margaret Cho got really real on Thursday night during a Twitter conversation about her former life as a sex worker.
In a heartbreaking interview with Billboard Magazine last month, the comedienne revealed she was sexually abused as a child and bullied by her classmates. Between the ages of five and 12, the 46-year-old said she was molested by a close family friend — and then again later throughout her teenage years.
In the series of tweets this week, Cho defended her past working in the sex industry:
"Sex work is simply work. For me it was honest work. I was a sex worker when I was young. It was hard but well paid. There's no shame in it.
The outspoken comic — who filed for divorce from her husband of 11 years in August — was asked by a fan if her experience as a sex worker made it difficult to be in relationships, to which she responded:

On Monday, the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda penned an open letter to executive producer Lorne Michaels, asking him to cancel the GOP frontrunner's November 7 episode of the late night variety show!
The group wrote in a letter sent to Michaels and NBC CEO Steve Burke:

But Hispanic activists aren't the only ones upset about the former Apprentice star's upcoming stint as host!
Margaret Cho is also blasting producers for Trump's invitation and for the lack of Asian-American representation in the show's long running history! She said:
