Carly Simon uses music to slam Trump
Singer Carly Simon for the first time ever has given permission for one of her songs to be used in a political ad. The ad promotes Hillary Clinton but it's all about The Donald. Her classic hit 'You're So Vain' was used as the soundtrack for an anti-Trump ad put out by something called the Patriotic Artists and Creatives PAC. Oh great, of all the PACs we have, now we have a PAC PAC.
It starts with a series of famous people calling Trump narcissistic and then you have a whole lot of unflattering moments interspersed throughout the video, all while 'You're So Vain' soars in the background. They even changed the original line from "your scarf it was apricot" to "your face it was apricot." Ouch!
A Carly Simon spokesperson said, "On the eve of the next presidential debate she is alarmed at the prospect of Donald Trump reaching the White House and has joined other creative voices in making a definitive statement."
Donald Trump, who is scheduled to appear at a Republican Hindu Coalition event in Edison, New Jersey on Saturday, could probably use some songs of his own to return fire.
Perhaps 'Stand By Your Man' by Loretta Lynn?
'The Bitch Is Back' by Elton John?
Or maybe an homage to the 33,000 deleted emails with 'Dust In The Wind' by Kansas?
All I know is I can't wait for November 9th for this to be all over.
