Further proof that Donald Trump has dodgy taste in music

Look, there should be no shame when it comes to liking certain types of music. Respect all music, listen to what you want. But this piece of news cannot go unreported.

We all know that Donald Trump has dodgy tastes when it comes to many things. The man love the garish stuff. Musically, he seems a little…off, too. Why else would he play songs like these at his rallies?

  • “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones. What message are you sending, Donnie?
  • “Rocket Man” by Elton John. I thought that was the derisive name you gave to Kim Jong-un.
  • “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. That song was inspired by the son of a senator who got a draft deferment and avoided going to Vietnam–just like you, Capt. Bone Spurs.

And the hits keep coming. Along with all the damning stories coming out of the January 6 Committee, word comes from his former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, that whenever Trumpy had one of his temper tantrums (and there were plenty; we heard about throwing plates of food against the wall resulting in ketchup dripping everywhere), they had a musical solution to calm him down.

An aide named Max Miller (Grisham’s boyfriend), nicknamed “Music Man,” would be summoned to play Trump material from Broadway musicals until he calmed down. His favourite, she says, was “Memory” from Cats. Feel free to look at the lyrics and psychoanalyze Trump in this light. Your conclusions will be…disturbing.

Who knows? Maybe Andrew Lloyd Webber saved the world from nuclear annihilation a couple of times with this song.
