Let’s Talk About the Playlist at Trump’s Rally

Trump’s rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night raised a lot of questions. Questions like: Will he really terminate NAFTA? Will there be a government shutdown? And is that a song from Cats?

That was the question on Anderson Cooper’s mind as he interviewed White House correspondent Sara Murray, who was in Phoenix for the rally. “Is that a song from Cats playing behind you?” Cooper asked at the end of the interview.

Sure enough, organizers were playing the song “Memory” from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats while the audience waited for Trump to give his speech, which seems like an odd choice, until you consider the lyrics:

Touch me it’s so easy to leave me

All alone with my memory

Of my days in the sun

Nostalgia? Or a thinly veiled reference to Trump’s run-in with the eclipse?
