Chuck Schumer Bless Trump’s First 100 Days With Scathing Playlist
NY (New York) senator Chuck Schumer marked Donald Trump’s 100th day as president with a scathing, tongue-in-cheek Spotify playlist.
“Music has meant so much these #Trump100days. Shirelles, Springsteen & more here’s my Spotify #100days playlist,” the prominent Democratic senator tweeted.
The 32-song playlist is stocked with songs that are slyly critical of Trump’s administration so far: The Eagles’ “Lyin’ Eyes,” the Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” John Legend’s “Same Old Story,” B.B. King’s “Fool Me Once” and Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend,” a jab at Trump’s near-weekly Mar-a-Lago trips.
A smattering of artists who notably came out against the mogul on the campaign trail – Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce and John Mellencamp – are featured on the playlist as well.
Schumer also showed off his contemporary tastes with picks by Tame Impala (“New Person, Same Old Mistakes”), Lady Gaga (“Million Reasons”), James Blake (“Life Round Here”) and Solange (“Weary”). Drake’s “Hotline Bling” also made the cut, likely a nod to Trump’s Saturday Night Live parody of the track.
