Yee Haw'ing For Donald Trump

Adele has joined fellow musicians Neil Young, REM and Aerosmith who have asked presidential hopeful Donald Trump to stop using their songs in his bid for the White House.
The strange haired racist one has been using Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Skyfall' in his campaign but the British singer has told him that he does not have permission for her music to be used.
Steven Tyler has already told Trump to leave his tunes out of the CD Player as it: 'gives the false impression that he is connected with, or endorses, Mr Trump’s presidential bid' which of course nobody in the public eye would, or so you would think.
Hulk Hogan and Lou “The Incredible Hulk” Ferrigno have nailed their colours to the Trump mast as have a couple of little known country music singers who probably mean more to an American audience who for some reason like all that 'my dog died and my pick up truck has a flat tyre' kinda thing. Kid Rock has also announced himself as a Trumpton.
Everyone's favourite Socialist Bernie Sanders has Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Vampire Weekend in his corner along with what looks like a 90s reunion tour with Dinosaur Jr, The Dead Kennedys, Belinda Carlisle, Faith No More, the Foo Fighters, Babes in Toyland and Sonic Youth.
Simon and Garfunkel have also given permission for their song 'America' to be used on the Sanders campaign ad.
In the Hillary Clinton corner is Kanye West, Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, Katie Perry, Christina Aguilera, Burt Bacharach, Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi, Mariah Carey, Cher, Kelly Clarkson, Ellie Goulding, Ice-T, Ja Rule, Quincy Jones, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Janelle Monae, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Usher, will.i.am and Stevie Wonder which ought to do it when it comes to choice of Hillary's campaign song.
The right wing has always been short on musical talent, the left, like the devil, always had the best tunes so it shouldn't be any surprise that the Trump campaign is only attracting singers who are  wearing boots and a cowboy hat and but as Kid Rocks biography shows he once had a song titled 'Cold and Empty', the Trump campaign may have found a song that sums him up perfectly.
That is of course unless they find a Country and Western singer who has a song called 'Hitler Loving Racist' they could use instead.

Who gives a crap what a bunch of drug infused singers think? Really. Who cares?

The drug infused singers obviously care, they obviously see being seen to endorse Trump as a bad career move.
