Trump walks off to Rolling Stones 'You Can't Always Get What You want'

As if to rub to salt in the wounds of Democrats, President-elect Donald Trump (shudder) exited the stage at his victory speech this morning to The Rolling Stones classic track 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'.

The song may have been intended to be about the 1960s, love and drugs, but for Trump it was about telling voters they need him even if they might not like him.

We've contacted a representative for the band for comment, but, in the meantime, frontman Mick Jagger has tweeted about it:

I'm sure we're to assume he was joking, though the sarcastic tone of his tweet was lost on many Trump supporters, who excitedly told him it would be a "great gig".

Trump previously used the song at the Republican National Convention, which led the Stones to tweet: “The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump. 'You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ was used without the band’s permission.”

George Harrison’s estate also denounced Trump during the convention for playing The Beatle’s song 'Here Comes the Sun' while introducing Ivanka Trump.

“The unauthorized use of #HereComestheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” Harrison’s estate’s official Twitter account posted.

Trump promised to "bind the wounds" of the campaign during his victory speech. His opponent Hillary Clinton has yet to offer a concession one.
