Rihanna is not the only musician who has taken issue with President Trump playing their music at his rallies. It allows one to speculate that Trump plays the music to insight a reaction from the musicians.
WaPo‘s White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker hit the celebrity jackpot on Sunday when he informed Rihanna that one of her songs was heard blaring at a President Trump rally in Chattanooga.
The famous singer, who has endorsed Florida’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, replied, “Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!”
WaPo‘s national security reporter John Hudson gave Rucker a plug, saying, “In other news, Rihanna and @PhilipRucker are on a first name basis.”
Billboard Magazine reported that Rihanna had “shut down” the use of her music, but the piece doesn’t say she has made any formal legal gestures toward doing so.
