Musician Pharrell Williams Sends Cease and Desist Letter to President Trump. Here’s What it Says.

Uh oh.

Published

Popular musician Pharrell Williams is jumping on the anti-Trump bandwagon by threatening to take legal action against the president if he continues to use the song “Happy” at rallies.

Threats such as these by musicians are hardly anything new, especially for President Trump, the circumstances for Williams’ cease and desist letter are unique. The song was apparently used to energize a crowd for a rally in Indiana just a few hours after the horrific synagogue shooting in Pennsylvania by a raging anti-Semite.

In the letter, Williams’ attorney Howard King criticized the president for unauthorized use of the performer’s song and stressed the grim context of its use: the murder of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Saturday morning — the worst massacre of Jews in American history.

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played his song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana. There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose,” wrote King.

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame has also repeatedly protested against the use of the band’s music at Trump rallies and other events, along with Prince’s estate, Queen, and R.E.M.

Fox Reporter Recoils After Getting DIRTY LOOK from POTUS

If you believed the MSM trope about President Trump and Fox News being two peas in a pod, you may want to watch this video.

Fox News

In the seemingly never-ending fight over “fake news”, and whose bias lands where today, the left side of the mainstream media sure loves pointing fingers at Fox News. It’s not hard to see why:  Fox has been consistently crushing CNN in the ratings, as the latter network continues to foment their “resistance” schtick to no avail.  Now, with the Mueller report currently being thumbed through by anyone working late enough over at the Department of Justice, and with enough clearance to gaze upon it, the media machine is about to kick into overdrive in ways that none of our forefathers could have imagined. Remember:  This is a time of nigh-unprecedented division in our nation, with the only other possible period of similar unrest coming during the 1860’s, well before the idea of “24 hour news” was even a gleam in a dreamer’s eye.  The nation is a powder keg thanks to this ridiculous rhetoric, and tensions are running ever-s0-high in Washington DC. And while Donald Trump is often testy, especially with reporters, one Fox News employee had an incredibly chilling experience with the President this week. Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts reported Friday that President Trump “glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before” over questions on criticism of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The moment was captured on video as well. https://twitter.com/jonkarl/status/1109094737343074305 It certainly doesn’t look like the President’s purported love affair with Fox News is living up to the leftist media’s hype.

Tucker Goes OFF on RussiaGate Hoaxers, Demands Apologies if Mueller Report is a Bust

While the left prepares to be let down by Mueller’s findings, Tucker Carlson is gearing up for a long and arduous fight.

Rumors are swirling today that Robert Mueller is nearing the end of his longstanding “RussiaGate” investigation, and the democrats are figuratively foaming at the mouth. For nearly two years, our nation has been caught up in the twisted, sordid conspiracy theory that Donald Trump, the President of The United States and an extremely wealthy man, has been working for the Russian government in order to get elected. Some say it has to do with a Trump Tower in Moscow, others say it’s due to a blackmail scheme involving unsanitary acts with Russian prostitutes.  In either case, Robert Mueller has been working on the case for two years, only managing to nab a few indictments of low-level Trump acquaintances for crimes not indicative of any “Russian collusion” storyline. Now, as Mueller hemorrhages staff and “no further indictments” seem likely, the nation patiently waits for a final report that they may not even get to see. Furthermore, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has already begun his work as a “heat shield” for the Mueller report by downplaying expectations of the final product. Fox News host Tucker Carlson is taking things a step further, however, demanding that those who perpetrated the longstanding hoax be held accountable. “There need to be consequences for this,” Carlson said. “Once the Mueller report appears, and it becomes incontrovertible that, whatever his faults, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians, the many people who’ve persistently claimed on the basis of no evidence that he did collude with the Russians must be punished. Not indicted or imprisoned, but thoroughly shamed and forced to apologize. If Republicans spent three full years falsely claiming that Barack Obama colluded with the government of Iran, would those who claimed it, ever work in politics or media again? That’s a rhetorical question.  Lying…
