Can this orange thing who is running for president do anything that doesn’t piss me off? I am talking about Donald Trump of course, the Republican candidate who continues to rally his supporters, and the New York Times described Trump’s last stop in Columbus, OH, as follows:
‘As Mr. Trump’s advance team seated three black people with the Trump fans behind the stage, the students and the supporters around them sang along to ‘Skyfall’ by Adele. When the chorus of “Hey Jude” played, Mr. Trump’s supporters lifted and swayed ‘The Silent Majority Stands With Trump’ signs. A couple wearing American flag shirts embraced.
When ‘Rocket Man’ came on, the students were joined by a college-age couple who introduced themselves and confided that they were there to do something, but would not say what.’ […] ‘After Mr. Trump wrapped up his speech and ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ blasted on the speakers, Mr. Hopkins rushed to the stage to get a picture of Mr. Trump.’
What is this? A variety show? The article also says the rally ‘had a family-friendly concert feel, with a sweet waft of cotton candy smell, thousands of smartphones raised like lighters and a singalong music playlist.’
I guess Trump thinks he is a rock star and plays whatever he likes, Adele, the Beatles, Elton John, Twisted Sister, and everyone he likes and it is pretty sure he doesn’t ask any permission to anyone. Do you think any of these artists would approve? It is very probable that McCartney and Elton John would be as pissed off as I am.
As for Adele, several sites, like The Blaze and Vanity Fair, report that Trump attended her concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York last Tuesday night. He even cut past a line of concert-goers waiting to get into the venue, which is not surprising because the Donald always thinks he is entitled to do such a thing
But does Adele know Trump is blasting her ‘Skyfall’ song at many of his campaign events? Can anyone tell her? She is outspoken enough to tell him to stop immediately.
