During a speech at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday, Donald Trump walked offstage to a familiar classic rock song by the Rolling Stones: You Can’t Always Get What You Want.
Despite an August 2016 request by the band’s publicist Fran Curtis to “cease all use immediately,” Trump continues to rebuff the British rock group’s plea, suggesting they, too, can’t always get what they want.
Trump’s continued choice of theme song amused the Internet on Tuesday, with users pointing out his pick seems oddly self-aware for a president who otherwise lacks any indication of self-awareness.

And Trump’s tax speech ends with his signature rally song You Can’t Always Get What You Want.

I will NEVER get over the fact that he always walks off to You Can’t Always Get What You Want. It seems so self-aware, it’s insane

The single funniest thing of the Trump Era is that he still ends his speeches with “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

could not agree more. At the GOP convention I thought it was just a way to troll us NeverTrump folks, but amazing how they still do it.

Trump wraps up to You Can’t Always Get What You Want, which, besides being a campaign staple, is thematic amid the tax reform fight.
