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.

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.
