Over the weekend, Twitter was on fire with comments about Donald Trump’s appearance at the Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Dinner, a forum attended by all of the major candidates seeking the Republican nomination for president.
As the presidential hopefuls walked out to give their pitch to voters, the same intro song was used for each candidate: “Only in America” by Brooks & Dunn.
But as former President Donald Trump took the stage, there was an awkward moment when people realized which line was playing:
“One could end up going to prison One just might be president”
Of course Trump is the frontrunner in the Republican field of candidates for president right now. But he’s also facing significant legal trouble after being indicted on numerous charges in both state and federal court, including allegations of mishandling classified documents.
In fact, just this past week, three more charges were added to the indictment against Trump in federal court.
So he probably didn’t need a reminder of the looming threat of prison time as he walked on stage in Iowa…but that’s what he got.
Trump, who usually walks out to Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” at his rallies, was reportedly furious about the walkup song.
