Rock legend Johnas Fogerty issues a resolution to the President to terminate and resign Donald Trump so that he does not interfere with the use of his hit song “Fortunate Son” at his campaign rallies.
Fogerty is the latest in a long line of musicians furious that Trump has appropriated their songs in order to promote themselves without permission and regardless of how despised they are.
Trump uses a “lucky son” strangely because he is that “happy son” it’s blown up in a song. It’s about how rich and politically connected people get special breaks, including dodging drafts, unlike everyone else. “I’m not a millionaire’s son,” the angry words of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic note.
D. Trump spent service in Vietnam with student deferrals and a a very suspicious medical claim “Bone spikes”. He once joked to shock the joker Howard Stern that he struggled with his own “Own Vietnam” fighting to prevent sexually transmitted diseases in all the women with whom he slept. “I feel like a great and very brave warrior,” he boasted without hesitation when Americans his age died in Vietnam.
It’s Trump’s rich guy who avoids service in Vietnam because he himself contributes to Fogerty’s song, which is particularly stunning to the rocker, as is Trump’s avoiding paying taxes.
“I wrote this song because, as a veteran, it was disgusting to me that some people were allowed to lose service to our country because they had political and financial privilege,” Fogerty wrote on Twitter on Friday. “I also wrote about rich people who don’t pay their fair share of taxes.”
Trump is “the best example of both of these issues. “The fact that Mr. Trump also respects the flames of hatred, racism and fear in rewriting the latest story is even more cause for concern because he used my song,” Fogerty added.
D. Trump, proclaimed a billionaire, paid only $ 750 in federal income taxes 2016 and 2017, reported The New York Times Trump’s tax returns for several years. In 10 of the past 15 years, he has not paid a penny of federal income taxes.
“I am opposed to the president using his song ‘Successful Son’ in any way in his campaign.” He uses my words and my voice to portray a message I don’t agree with, “Fogerty wrote on Twitter. “Therefore, I issue a ‘stop and give up’ order.”
Fogerty said he is mystified by the fact that D. Trump used this song because he is exactly the kind of guy he distorts in his lyrics.
Trump helped himself to the music without looking at a list of performers, including Neil Young, Adele, Rihann, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Elton John. Prince’s estate last year.
