Donald Trump tweeted a spoof video using Nickelback’s 2005 song Photograph, and it was in reference to the dirt he was allegedly trying to have the President of Ukraine dig up on Joe Biden. You would think that Trump and Nickelback joining unholy forces (even though, in Nickelback’s defense, and I hate Trump for making me type that, they were dragged into this mess) would cause Satan to destroy the world once and for all since his job is done, but the tweet was yanked before that could happen.
Here’s the latest Mark of the Devil if you didn’t see it and want
According to The Guardian:
Within 12 hours of the video being posted to Twitter, however, it had been removed and replaced with the notice: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.” The video is currently available on YouTube.
It is the second time this year that the American president has been censured for infringing copyright on Twitter. In April, a campaign advert, scored with the soundtrack to the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, was removed following a takedown notice from the copyright holder Warner Bros.
Trump needs to stop with foolishness and learn who’s music he can use. For example, if Scott Baio had any musical numbers from Charles in Charge, I’m sure those are fine. If he needs a song that mentions a picture, Kid Rock is a Trump stan, so he could use the Kid Rock vocals of the song “I Put Your Picture Away“.
Of course Twitter had thoughts:
All this time, Nickelback has been good. pic.twitter.com/re8psb76Px

“Nickelback sent the President of the United States a takedown request” is truly one of the most epic sentences in the English language. https://t.co/YpQ2obDR7Q

Well, if you had “Nickelback invokes trademark infringement to remove a parody video posted by the president to Twitter,” on your 2019 bingo card, today is your day. pic.twitter.com/gxZyvIsUQD

Trump or his people need to learn how Twitter works. First, don’t come for Chrissy Tiegen unless you want #pussyassbitch to trend. Second, don’t use music of people who don’t like you. Three, try to get into less Twitter fights with celebrities. Actually, it would be nice if we had an overlord who wasn’t tweeting out dusty ass memes that involve Nickelback, but clearly that’s not where we are at right now. And I’m sure NASA is going to get swarmed today by millions of people who want off this planet now that we have to choose between Trump and Nickelback.
