Trump Just Exposed The Famous Musician Who Attacked Him As A Hypocrite With 2 Photos

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called out Neil Young on Fox News “for being a hypocrite” after the rock icon complained about the real estate mogul using his song during the latter’s presidential announcement earlier this month.

Trump announced his presidential candidacy in Manhattan last Tuesday, playing Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” midway through his speech. Young said Trump did not have permission to use the song and endorsed Democrat Bernie Sanders shortly thereafter, The Associated Press reported. But Trump took to Twitter, noting he met with Young recently and had photographic evidence to prove it.

Gretchen Carlson followed up with Trump, asking about the details of the meeting. “It’s crazy,” Trump said Thursday. “I hardly know Neil Young. He calls me up. He comes over to my office. He wants me to go into a deal. He wants me to give him five million dollars to some ridiculous deal. I’m very nice. I sorta like his music. It’s good. It’s fine. I don’t even like that song that much. I used it as background music.”

He called me about two weeks ago. He wanted me to go to his concert at Jones Beach. He called me. Then he heard the song. It wasn’t really him, I don’t think, I think it was his manager. He figured he could get some free publicity off of Trump. So he hears the song. It’s one of ten songs.It was background music.

And we used it, and they said ‘Oh, we don’t want that to be used.’ And that’s okay. By the way, I had the legal right to use it. But I wouldn’t use it if they don’t’ wanna do that. But here’s a guy, comes to my office, wants five million dollars for this ridiculous project. I didn’t say yes, no, or anything. I sorta just forgot about it.

Then he calls me and wants me to come to the Jones Beach concert and that was like a week and a half ago. And then all of the sudden he’s complaining because I used background music that I had the legal right to use. I didn’t have to ask him. I had the legal to use it. So I figure, at least I have to call out Neil Young as being a hypocrite.

WATCH ‘The Donald’ Roast Obama: ‘He’s The Last Person I’d Want Negotiating For Me’

On Fox News Channel’s On The Record With Greta Van Susteren Monday, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump explained a tweet he sent contending anyone who votes for or favors renewal of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) does not deserve to be president.

Van Susteren asked him about the tweet and why he is against TPA. Trump answered:

Because lobbyists and donors who really control the politicians in this country, they want it, because they’re representing companies that benefit. But the country is not benefiting. And I will tell you, that is really a bad thing….

That trade pact is a disaster for jobs in our country. We should not have it. It doesn’t talk about currency manipulation the way it should – it covers too big an area. We should do individual agreements with individual countries.

And the fact is Obama is not a negotiator. The last person I want negotiating for me is President Obama. And he’s got free wheel on this thing.

“It’s absolutely a disaster for the country,” Trump continued. “And a disaster for business and jobs.”

The Senate cleared a procedural hurdle Tuesday to end debate on TPA, voting 60 to 37 to advance the trade agenda after the House passed it for a second time last week, The Hill reported. A final vote is expected Wednesday before it goes to the White House for President Obama’s signature.

Van Susteren also pointed out the real estate mogul had officially filed his paperwork to run for president. “Which will be very disappointing to a lot of people that are all talk and no action – the politicians,” Trump said. “You know, there’s a whole big thing out there. These people will never bring us back to the promised land. They will never do it. A lot of politicians and a lot of pundits are very disappointed. And they said, ‘Oh, he’ll never file.’ Well I filed. As of today, I’m filed.”

The Trump camp confirmed the statement of candidacy in a release Tuesday.

Sarah Palin Might Have Just Enthusiastically Revealed Who She Supports For 2016

The day after he formally announced his candidacy, 2016 presidential hopeful Donald Trump received a glowing compliment – if not an endorsement – from one of America’s most recognizable political figures.

Sarah Palin opined in a Facebook post Wednesday that the backlash Trump received after making his announcement should be a sign that he is “doing something right,” going on to point out some of the qualities she believes make him a good leader.

Capture

“There’s no denying Donald J. Trump’s accomplishments and drive to create opportunity for every willing American to succeed,” she wrote. “His own success is testament to the job-creating achievements made possible when one applies the courageous and tenacious pro-private sector precepts we need to fire up the economy.”

Acknowledging Trump entered an already crowded primary field, she said his presence – as with all of the candidates – is good for the party.

“This,” she pointed out, is “in contrast with the pro-big government party’s practice of merely anointing a chosen one, thus robbing voters of healthy debate.”

It is, she claimed, the responsibility of Republican voters to ignore the mainstream media and select the most electable, ideologically sound candidate from within the field to square off against the Democrat nominee in 2016.

“THEN,” she wrote, “on an even playing field, in 2016, we can charge forward after the radical left hears America shout, ‘You’re fired!’”

Her statement was met with some support, including those who suggested she join the ticket as Trump’s running mate. Others expressed cynicism, many of whom pointed to the fact that Trump believes Oprah Winfrey would make a good vice president as evidence that he is the wrong choice.

Exposed: Donald Trump’s Circus Act

Poor Jeb.

He’s Donald Trump’s first Republican victim, but he won’t be his last.

On Monday, Bush officially declared he was a Republican candidate for president, something everyone knew was coming.

Jeb gave a serious, by-the-book announcement speech, explaining his many qualifications, making his claim that he’s a true conservative and promising to make America great again.

It was boringly Bush, and maybe a little too moderate for hardline conservatives. But it was mature and dignified. Presidential even.

The mainstream media gave Jeb token coverage for about a day. Some were especially impressed by his fluency in Spanish.

But then on Tuesday, the one-man, one-ring, Donald Trump circus rolled into Republican town.

The Donald wasted no time proving to everyone why he should not be president. He also proved why he’s going to spell trouble for the GOP primary process.

Winging it without a written speech or a Teleprompter, Trump mangled lots of facts about the economy, attacked Republicans Jeb and Marco Rubio, offended the Mexican nation, and admitted proudly that he was absurdly rich and ready to spend millions electing himself.

Entertaining and scary at the same time, Trump was a speeding political train wreck before he got a chance to leave the station.

He said horrible and untrue things about illegal Mexican immigrants, saying they were mostly criminals and murderers while admitting only “some of them may be good people.”

Yet Trump surely hit some nerves when he said we’ve become a country of losers because our leaders are a bunch of losers who can’t get it right in Iraq, Iran, Washington, or anywhere else.

And who’s going to argue with the Donald when he says the Chinese are winning every trade deal we make with them? Or that we’re stuck with crumbling Third World airports like LAX and LaGuardia.

It was Trump in all his self-powered glory.

The media began bashing and mocking him immediately, mainly by merely repeating some of the dumb or outlandish things he blurted.

Trump is not the Ross Perot of 2016. Perot was a serious businessman who wanted to fix the economy and balance the federal budget.

Trump is a vanity candidate. He’s also the wild-and-crazy GOP guy the liberal media have been praying for.

Jon Stewart — whose progressive shtick on the “Daily Show” usually reflects the worst ideas and values of the Democrat faithful — thanked the heavens for Trump’s decision to run.

The Donald is a gift that will keep Hollywood’s comedy sector supplied with a steady stream of material guaranteed to get laughs and always reflect poorly on Republicans.

Another thing. When Trump’s on the stage, he becomes the center of attention and sucks the air out of the room with his wild and crazy personality.

Trump might actually possess some right answers for dealing with the legacy of problems the Obama gang will leave behind.

But he will not be able to get anything done because to fix things in government, you have to know how to work with other people.

Trump doesn’t. He’s a solo act, an ego in chief, an order-giving business exec. He isn’t used to negotiating or working with others.

Everyone knows Trump can’t win. He knows it too. He’s a dangerous distraction and a stain on the GOP brand, but conservatives stuck with him.

For him, the 2016 GOP primary is just another TV reality show. But this time, it’s a show with real consequences, domestically and internationally.

He’ll create lots of late-night laughs. He might even force substantive candidates to address important subjects they’d prefer to dodge, like immigration reform.

But as long as Trump’s in the race, he can only hurt the Republican cause, whether it’s by making the party’s primary process look like a clown convention or bumping someone smart and fiery like Carly Fiorina off the TV debate stage.

The Donald and his multi-billions have crashed the GOP’s exclusive 2016 party for now. But in the long run, he’ll be the joker who’ll be trumped.

This Presidential Candidate Was Just Accused Of BUYING Supporters For His Announcement Speech

The campaign of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump flat out denied that actors were paid to appear at the real-estate mogul’s campaign launch Tuesday.

An email obtained by The Hollywood Reporter (THR) suggested the crowd gathered in New York Tuesday was ‘astroturf.’ It was sent Friday by New York-based company Extra Mile Casting in conjunction with Gotham Government Relations, another New York-based firm that has done work with Trump in the past.

Hi there—

We are working helping one of are [sic] associates out at Gotham GR – http://gothamgr.com/ with a big event happening on TUESDAY 6/16/15.

This is an event in support of Donald Trump and an upcoming exciting announcement he will be making at this event.

This event is called “People for a Stronger America.” The entire group is a pro-small business group that is dedicated to encouraging Donald Trump and his latest ventures. This event will be televised.

We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement.

We understand this is not a traditional ‘background job,’ but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought.

This event is happening LIVE and will be from 8:45AM-11:30AM. LESS THAN 3 HOURS

This will take place inside / interior.

The rate for this is: $50 CASH at the end of the event.

We would love to book you if you are interested and still available.

Please let us know and we will get back to you with confirmation.

THR noted the email was compounded by an Angelo Carusone of Media Matters for America (MMFA), who spotted a now-deleted Instagram photo of Domenico Del Giacco, whom he knows to be a background actor.

Still, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski denied the accusations of ‘astroturfing’ to THR. “Mr. Trump draws record crowds at almost every venue at which he is a featured speaker,” Lewandowski said. “The crowds are large, often record-setting and enthusiastic, often with standing ovations. Mr. Trump’s message is, ‘Make America great again.’”

Whether the crowd was genuine or not, one thing’s for certain: Trump’s candidacy has generated a lot of buzz. His campaign issued a press release Thursday which said The Apprentice host was “the most searched Republican Presidential candidate in every state in the country. 3.4 million Facebook users in the U.S. generated 6.4 million interactions regarding the launch of his campaign, the highest by far, among all 2016 GOP candidates.” The release also said Trump was the most-searched Republican presidential candidate on Google Trends.
