Donald and Melania Trump Walked Out to The Rolling Stones’ “Heart of Stone” at Today’s Inauguration Concert

Those watching or in attendance at the “Make America Great Again!” inauguration concert this afternoon may have noticed that, after a long set by the Old Guard Drum and Fife core, the DJ paused for a while to cue up a couple of Rolling Stones songs: the slightly sordid, distinctly unpatriotic twofer of “Let’s Spend the Night Together” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

It turned out, however, that this was just a lead-up to the theme song for our new president and First Lady, which played in full as Donald and Melania paraded down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with screens flashing “Make America Great Again” from every angle. That song was the Stones’ 1965 hit “Heart of Stone.”

Here are the extremely creepy lyrics to that song, for your reference:

There’ve been so many girls that I’ve known
I’ve made so many cry and still I wonder why
Here comes the little girl
I see her walking down the street
She’s all by herself
I try and knock her off her feet
But, she’ll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, this heart of stone
What’s different about her? I don’t really know
No matter how I try I just can’t make her cry
Cause she’ll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, no, this heart of stone
Don’t keep on looking that some old way
If you try acting sad, you’ll only make me glad
Better listen little girl
You go on walking down the street
I ain’t got no love, I ain’t the kind to meet
‘Cause you’ll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, you’ll never break this heart of stone darlin
No, no, this heart of stone
You’ll never break it darlin
You won’t break this heart of stone
Oh no no no
You better go
You better go home
Cause you’ll, you’ll never break this heart of stone

What better song, really, to mark the first notable musical moment of Mr. and Mrs. Trump’s time in the White House: a beautiful story of love, courtship, and resilience.
