tRump daughter uses Beatles song without permission, everyone stands for her as she walks on stage.

It's getting more creepy as time goes on.

Snip
"Everyone stood for her as she walked onto the stage to The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun." Some in the audience wore masks, but most sat close together in chairs that were not more than one or two feet apart."

WH Barbie, the advisor with no credentials except nepotism is becoming an object of idol worship.
Here Comes the Sun? Really?

Ethically, they're implying an endorsement from the artists, so there's some deception going on here.

And politically, it runs the risk that the media will give some airtime to the artists for them to say they don't endorse that candidate or that they explicitly endorse the other candidate.

This is why good campaigns, stick with songs they got the artists' permission to use. But republicans always figure the rules don't apply to them.

like i said, republicans don't care. they'll use whatever song they like and dismiss the artist who balks.

it goes back to ronnie using "born in the usa" over the boss's objections....

... Because "Born in the USA" was certainly not a "pro-USA" kind of song. But then again we are talking Raygun*... emphasis on "moron."

Comprehension and logic are not a strong suit of the average Republican voter. Just scream U.S.A!, fly some flags, and play a good song and they react like Pavlov's dog.
