Jagger: Everyone Outside US ‘Mystified’ By Trump Victory [VIDEO]
Members of the Rolling Stones said after Brexit they didn’t think anything could shock them — and then Donald Trump won the election.
“Everyone outside the U.S. is kind of mystified, I’d say,” lead singer Mick Jagger said in an interview with the Associated Press on Tuesday. “That’s the polite word.” (RELATED: Rolling Stones Tell Trump To Stop The Music!)
“Wow, that was quite mind-blowing watching from England as well,” guitarist Ronnie Wood said. “Cause we were all just shocked and stunned with the Brexit thing and so I thought, ‘Nothing’s going to shock me now. For all I know Trump’s going to get in.’ Sure enough, he did. OK, There will be some changes made. Hopefully they’ll be good ones.”
“I don’t think he’s gonna be as radical as he was coming into it,” drummer Charlie Watts said. “So I think a lot of what he says is going to be tempered down. Because if it isn’t, it’s gonna be a hell of bloody ride for four years.”
In the early morning hours last Wednesday, lead singer Mick Jagger tweeted that maybe Trump would ask the band to play their song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at his inauguration.
“Just was watching the news… maybe they’ll ask me to sing ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ at the inauguration, ha,” Jagger tweeted.

The comment stemmed from a conflict between the band and Trump over using their song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” without permission at his campaign rallies, something the Trump camp claimed was false.
