"It depicts a dead President Trump and a burning White House", Rosendale added.

The event was a benefit to urge fans to get out and vote in the Montana Senate election in November, with Ament known to be a firm supporter of current Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

But it was this poster, sold at the venue last night that started generating debate Tuesday afternoon after it caught the attention of conservative media news outlets. The artwork, in which an eagle feasts on the President's bones, was made by the band's Jeff Ament with artist Bobby Draws Skulls. That post, which was later taken down, tags several parts of the poster, including a flying "Jon Tester", jetting over the White House destruction on a tractor.

Responding online to the poster, some fans even said they would be boycotting the band's music as a result of the controversial artwork. Rosendale , who is originally from Maryland, called the poster "disgusting and reprehensible" and called on Tester "to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism".

Koepka, 28, won the Wanamaker Trophy for his second major championship of the year, following his victory in June at the 2018 U.S. The 42-year-old American underwent spinal fusion last year but showed glimpses of the sublime form that has earned him 14 majors.

Furthermore, a close read reveals a man who may be meant to represent President Donald J. Trump dead, on the ground, being worked over by a vulture-like bald eagle.

The Republican National Committee this summer released a video, called "The Left in 2018: Unhinged", featuring comments from Madonna and an image of Kathy Griffin holding a fake Trump severed head. "Jon Tester is the real deal and nobody cares more about our country and especially Montana", a message from Ament on the drawing reads.

Earlier this year, Ament - who referenced "Russian money, golf courses and hookers" in his description of the poster - admitted he was keen to use the Montana concert to boost the Democrat campaign.

"We never saw the poster before the show and we don't like it", Tester spokesman Chris Meagher said.

Pearl Jam's "Rock2Vote" concert in Missoula on Monday was staged independently of the campaign, with a focus on voter turnout. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".
