Donald Trump Shares 'Everybody Hurts' Meme Mocking Democrats on Twitter

The parody video, created by YouTuber CarpeDonktum, features President Trump delivering his State of the Union speech as the camera cuts to the sullen faces of Democrats in the audience, with R.E.M.'s mournful music serving as the soundtrack. The band's official Twitter account tweeted its displeasure on Friday night, referencing the song "World Leader Pretend".

The 90s American rock band are known to be outspoken opponents of the president and lashed out at the Trump back in 2015 when he played one of their songs prior to a rally.

MSNBC reported, citing a source with knowledge of the incident, that the video had been removed following a legal challenge from REM's publishers.

"Measures have been taken to stop it", Mr. Mills, 60, said in another tweet tagging Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, adding: "you need to get on this".

The video went viral on Twitter for the outrage it sparked with the band.


He later shared a link to a tweet reporting the video's removal, quipping "winning", in reference to President Trump's campaign refrain.

On Saturday CarpeDonktum uploaded another version of the video playing Lee Greenwood's song "God Bless the U.S.A.' instead of 'Everybody Hurts".

"You are a fraud, a charlatan, and a con man".

This isn't the first time R.E.M. has tussled with Trump over use of its music. "Love, R.E.M." the band tweeted.

Both Mills and Stipe have been extremely open about their dislike for the president over the years, and during a live Q&A with NME in November 2017, the two discussed how their music related to the chaotic political state of America.
