As Game of Thrones sage/author George R.R. Martin decreed on his blog in a post titled “President Pussygrabber,” “America has spoken.”

Whatever you chose to do or not do in that voting booth is your Free Land right, but just remember we now have collectively put a man in the most powerful position in the world who not only is the most under-qualified candidate ever, but also the most horrifyingly conniving there is, as well.

Drumpf, delivering his acceptance speech last night from within the belly of New York’s Hilton Midtown, for the numerous time, made like many Republicans before him and used a song that he didn’t get approval for, upon entering the stage, locked in step with the The Rolling Stones‘ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want;” [LISTEN].

This is the second time he used the song, actually. The first was back in July when he blasted it at the Republican National Convention. That time around, also like many Republicans before him, Drumpf received a cease statement from the Stones.

Without knowing Trump’s platform and intolerant mouth, on paper, it makes sense — the song was a sobering message to the idealism of the 60s upon coming to an end with America’s culture of wants and holding on rather to what it needs. Trump wants to “Make America Great Again” in response to the Obama administration’s idealistic last eight years, Jagger laying out three verses about love, drugs and politics, howling:

You can’t always get what you want/But if you try sometime/You’ll find/You get what you need

The problem is Trump is a demagogue veiling himself in promises of needs for a people based on his self-serving wants. When things don’t go his way, he lies, cheats, steals and sues. Before the election even started — and he won — he claimed it was rigged. The man tried to prevent people from voting after 8 p.m. in Nevada. And then there’s all the 282 people and counting he’s accosted for not falling in line with his beliefs and ideals. And this beautiful dance with what government and its people should look forward to wanting/needing in his first 100 days.

Such is the culture of lyrics and wants and needs, though — freedom to interpret. Your move, America. Here’s ours:
