Trump Goes After Jay Z at Nashville Rally for ‘Filthy’ Comments at Clinton Concert from 2016

President Trump‘s Nashville rally tonight felt in parts like a time warp back to 2016, with references to his electoral victory and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

But for some reason, the President of the United States randomly invoked Jay Z and that time he performed at a Clinton rally.

Trump first briefly referenced “SpyGate” and talked about how Sanders was “screwed” by the Democrats. When he mentioned Clinton, people chanted “lock her up.”

“Is there anybody in this big beautiful arena right now that’s infiltrating my campaign?” he mockingly asked.

Trump talked about how many people showed up at his campaign rallies in 2016 and said of Clinton, “The only way she filled up the arena was to get Jay Z. And his language was so filthy that it made me like the most clean-cut human being on earth.”

“Without any musical instruments,” Trump said, “I had much bigger crowds than he was drawing.”

He went on to knock Jay Z’s use of the “F-word” at the Clinton event, and yes, he did in fact riff on this during the campaign too.
