Paul McCartney Has Written Song About Donald Trump

Music News

Paul McCartney has written a song about Donald Trump. According to The Liverpool Echo, McCartney — who flew directly back to England from his Tinley Park, Illinois gig — made his annual graduation appearance on Friday (July 28th) at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts — the “Fame” school that he co-founded and was once the home of his and George Harrison’s alma mater, the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys. While addressing the audience, McCartney revealed that he had written a song about Trump — but offered no specifics other than saying, “Sometimes the situation in the world is so crazy, that you’ve got to address it.” Woody Harrelson was on hand at the ceremony and was photographed with the former-Beatle. The actor had screened his new film, Lost In London, to the students and partook in his own Q&A.

Earlier this month, McCartney spoke in detail about his disdain for the troubled current President, telling The Daily Telegraph, “I’m not a fan at all. He’s unleashed a kind of violent prejudice that is sometimes latent among people. Most people don’t feel it’s OK to be like that. When there were protesters at his rallies, Trump would say, ‘Oh beat them up, give them a good punch’ — wait a minute, I’m not sure that’s cool for a leader of a country to be saying that. Maybe for a hockey player. He’s unleashed the ugly side of America. People feel like they have got a free pass to be, if not violent, at least antagonistic towards people of a different color or a different race. I think we all thought we’d got past that a long time ago.”

Back in 2008, Paul McCartney — who had previously never publicly endorsed a candidate for U.S. President — did so for Barack Obama — and went so far to endorse him again during his re-election campaign four years later. Back in ’08, McCartney told us how happy he was with America choosing Obama for the job: “I was like so fingers crossed that he would win it. There was always that idea that (Senator John) McCain might sort of slip in. So, I’m just so chuffed. I think a lot of people are, anyway, but I am. I think he’s sincerely the man for the job, I think it’s a legendary occasion, and I wish him the very best. And I hope to get the opportunity to sing a song that he’d like to sing to his wife. I have a little song ready for him — (sings) ‘Michelle, come on.'”
