Rolling Stone: From Dr. Brian May "Trump Has Been Trumped" By Elizabeth Banks At DNC #WeAreTheChampions

"Given the choice between our record being used to promote hatred and intolerance, or being used for comedy, I'd take the latter," May writes [In a quote from Dr. May's blog LINK HERE]

LINK: Queen's Brian May on Elizabeth Banks' DNC Entrance: 'Trump Has Been Trumped!'

Quotes from the Rolling Stone article:
When actress Elizabeth Banks walked onstage at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night, her entrance was accompanied by Queen's resilient "We Are the Champions," the same track Donald Trump used in his RNC address much to May's dismay. But in a statement to Rolling Stone, Queen guitarist Brian May says that Banks' usage, while equally unauthorized, at least made him laugh.

"Well, I think it’s fair to say Trump has been trumped!" May tells Rolling Stone. "I suppose, in a sense, Elizabeth Banks' use of the song AS WELL as Donald Trump restores the balance. She didn’t ask either, but her lampoon did make me laugh. Watching Donald Trump parade himself to 'We Are The Champions' gave me a sinister feeling – but Elizabeth's 'performance' was clearly lighthearted.

*There is also a brief video of Elizabeth Banks entrance and the beginning of her speech at the convention in the Rolling Stone article but we had some issues embedding here, so go to the article at the link above to view.

I have decided, with great effort, NOT to write at length about political platforms, so I will just say, "Hooray, Brian May!"
