The ultra-wealthy celebrity left just can’t get no satisfaction over an election that didn’t go their way and the latest to tee off on President Trump is none other than Mick Jagger, the aging frontman of the Rolling Stones.
It is now 2019 and what remains of the iconic band are still dressing up in spandex and hitting the concert circuit despite being so old that they look like the congressional leadership of the Democratic party.
Like so many rockers of his generation, Jagger despises Trump and unloaded at him during a speech to other rich degenerate celebs at the Venice Film Festival over the left’s bastard religion of climate change.

Mick Jagger took aim at the Trump administration on Saturday for its efforts to roll back a number of Obama-era environmental regulations in the past few years, saying the United States “should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way.”
The Rolling Stones frontman made the remarks at the Venice Film Festival where he was promoting the premiere of a new film, Jagger criticized the Trump administration for its stance on climate change, Rolling Stone reported.
“We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the U.S., where all the environmental controls that were put in place – that were just about adequate – have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,” he said at the festival.
“The U.S. should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way,” he continued.
He went on to say that he is “so glad that people feel so strongly about that that they want to protest.”
“I’m absolutely behind that. I’m glad they’re doing that because they’re the ones who are going to inherit the planet,” he continued.
Both Jagger and Keith Richards are now septuagenarians and millionaires several times over but remain driven by enough narcissism and greed to continue to touring despite their advanced ages and the fact that the “world’s greatest rock and roll band” hasn’t had a real hit in decades nor a really good album since Richard Nixon was in the White House.
Last year, Jagger’s longtime bandmate also had harsh words for the leader of the free world.

According to Richards who just may be immortal given his history of substance abuse and his continued existence, the United States must find a way to “get rid” of Trump which can be interpreted in a number of ways but it isn’t likely going to happen at the ballot box thanks to the ongoing troubles of the Democrats and the tenacity of the president whose popularity continues rising with each domestic and foreign policy success.
Not that Richards is much of an authority on the democratic process, he’s from freaking England where the populace submits to the whims of the royal family an has become as much of a fascist country today than it would have been had the Nazis won the war.
The truth is that this is more of a cry for attention and while I personally love the old Stones albums, they stopped putting out anything that was decent a few years after they headlined the infamous concert at Altamont when the last vestiges of the flower power hippies got their heads kicked in by the Hell’s Angels.
The productive era for the band came to a close with the 1973 classic “Exile On Main Street” and then Richards vanished into a narcotic fog which he still seems to be wandering around in and Jagger’s drug of choice has always been his own egomania.
I am sure that Jagger-Richards Inc. will be charging maximum dollars for their tickets and will continue to do so until they need walkers to assist them in hobbling around onstage because this is nothing more than a zombie band anymore and that’s been the case for quite awhile now.
Oh, how the celebs are doing to shriek come next November when Trump cruises to reelection. Old Mick may even have a heart attack, a distinct possibility after problems with the old ticker caused the cancellation of multiple concert dates earlier this year.
