'Live and Let Die' blares as Trump tours mask factory, without mask

By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Tuesday, May 5, 2020

President Trump visited Honeywell’s mask-making factory Tuesday, but the choice of music raised some eyebrows.

A clip posted to YouTube by the PBS NewsHour shows Mr. Trump walking through the Arizona facility without a mask to the song “Live and Let Die.”

The song was initially a hit for Wings as the theme to the eponymous James Bond movie and was remade by Guns N Roses in 1991. It was the latter version that echoed through the factory as Mr. Trump talked to Honeywell executives and workers.

Liberal commentators called the music choice — the song was once banned by Clear Channel in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — bizarre and insensitive, given the magnitude of the coronavirus crisis, which has killed more than to 70,000 Americans.

Guns N’ Roses targets Trump with new shirt: ‘Live N’ Let Die with COVID 45’
BY MIKE STUNSON
MAY 14, 2020 08:54 AM ,  UPDATED 9 HOURS 56 MINUTES AGO

A new shirt being sold by rock band Guns N’ Roses appears to take aim at President Donald Trump and his coronavirus response.

The band’s new shirt reads “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45,” appearing to mock the president’s trip to an Arizona factory producing N95 masks earlier this month. While Trump toured the facility, he was shown not wearing a mask while “Live and Let Die” blared over the building’s speakers, McClatchy News reported.

The audio of the hit song drowned out Trump speaking to workers at the factory, video shows. Many people criticized Trump for not wearing a mask

tbh, the last straw was the comment by Fernando in the other thread about "there would be new music if not for Corona-Chan"

It’s funny how genuine excitement for this band back in 2016, could turn to such shit 4 years later...

True. I think it all boils down to one person though...
