John Fogerty is upset President Trump plays one of his very personal songs on campaign collections because the song is actually aimed at people like him.
Fogerty says he’s issuing a ceasefire order … demanding that Trump and co. refrain from playing Creedence Clearwater Revival’s massive hit, “Fortunate Son.”
Fogerty, who sang the song in both the group and as a solo artist, made it clear it’s personal … “I wrote this song because as a veteran I was disgusted that some people were allowed to be excluded from serving our country because they had access to political and economic privilege. I also wrote about wealthy people who did not play their fair share of taxes. “
John made it clear he does not support DT. There have been other attempts to get Trump to stop playing other songs at his rallies, but the law allows it. Yet artists can express their dissatisfaction.
As you may know, Trump never served in the military because he was given a postponement – first a student postponement and then a 1-Y postponement after being diagnosed with bone spurs. And he grew up in a privileged house, something Fogerty sings about. In other words, Donald Trump was a lucky son.
By the way … if you have not heard “Lucky Son”, listen to it. It is fantastic.
