Would someone please tell Donald Trump what the song “Macho Man” really means?

Whoever has been choosing the music for the Trump campaign is completely shit at their job. What’s the message being sent by playing The Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” a campaign stop staple. Who’s idea was it to play the anti-Vietnam-draft-dodging song, “Fortunate Son” by CCR? And would someone please tell Trump that the Village People’s “Macho Man” isn’t a good choice when it comes to “proving” that he’s in robust health?

Let’s go over it one more time, Trumpers. This is a gay anthem used by millions to express and celebrate a certain sense of self and identity, one that Trump certainly has no connection with–unless perhaps he’s trying to tell us something. I mean, he was a big part of the NYC social scene during the disco era. Maybe he dropped into a bathhouse from time to time and is desperate to confess.

What portion of the MAGA crowd is homophobic?And he’s dancing to it.

Someone in the MAGA cult has done this.
