Trump Takes Stage w/ Song Lyrics: Media Goes Crazy!

An interesting choice of background music marked the entrance of former President Donald Trump, now a presidential hopeful facing numerous federal criminal charges, at Iowa’s premier political event. The song, Brooks & Dunn’s “Only In America,” featuring lyrics with a reference to “prison,” echoed ironically around the venue as Trump took to the podium at the Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Dinner.

The song chosen by the Iowa GOP states, “one could end up going to prison, one just might be president,” and was used for all candidates starting their 10-minute speeches. The Iowa GOP didn’t immediately respond when asked to comment by Fox News Digital.

A flurry of activity on Twitter suggested that Team Trump was not too pleased about the song choice, with one user alleging that Trump’s team was “furious” at Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds. No immediate response came from Trump’s team when Fox News Digital reached out for their comment.

Twitter users, quick to note the apt lyrics, added fuel to the fire. State Attorney for Palm Beach County Dave Aronberg took to Twitter, commenting, “OMG. That line hits right when he gets on stage.” GOP strategist Mike Murphy chimed in with, “Ha! Trump is finally understanding [that Iowa Governor Kim] Reynolds didn’t get her job because she just fell off a turnip truck…. #SharpOperator BTW, earlier she was at a big Tim Scott event. And treated with due respect.”

Despite the ironic choice of an upbeat patriotic song that holds a narrative of hope and dreams, the significance of the lyrics seemed to slip under the radar of the sold-out crowd, numbering over 1,000, who watched Trump as he stormed the stage.

During his speech, Trump alluded to the charges he’s currently facing, saying, “If I weren’t running, I would have nobody coming after me. Or if I was losing by a lot, I would have nobody coming after me.”

Trump, indicted in June over allegations from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into his improper handling of classified records post-presidency, pleaded not guilty to 37 counts, including willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and false statements.
