If you’re not familiar with Twitter’s Carpe Donktum, you should check him out. He posted a great video of President Trump walking into the SOTU with R.E.M.’s ‘Everybody Hurts’ playing in the background. President Trump even tweeted the video out, and it went viral.
The problem is that Twitter removed the video for copyright infringement (see below). Carpe Donktum even got into a discussion with one of R.E.M.’s band members to discuss the violation. R.E.M.’s Mike Mills and Carpe Donktum seemed to iron things out, but then the video was taken down from President Trump’s Twitter feed. YouTube also removed the video after Mills claimed copyright infringement. Not to be outdone, Carpe Donktum did what any resourceful Trump supporter would do. He changed the song to Lee Greenwood’s ‘God Bless the U.S.A.’ (see the new video below) and then President Trump retweeted the new version! It has over 77K ‘Likes’ on Twitter.

The back and forth between the “mad liberals” and Carpe Donktum has been going on for two days. The leftists have been attacking Carpe Donktum and having a fit over the SOTU video demanding that it be taken down.
Leave it to incredibly talented Trump supporters like Carpe Donktum to create videos like these in the face of the mad liberals.
One of Carpe Donktum’s “oldest friends” just tweeted out a hysterical video of President Trump playing some “soulful pan music” using liberal tears:
