GOP operative: Trump is 'like Journey who won't stop playing "Don't Stop Believing"'

November 8, 2018

President Trump is apparently best described as a past-its-prime '80s rock band, and his midterm strategy is like the hit single that just won't go away.

As the midterm elections approached, Trump kept firing off tweets on the same subjects — immigration, fake news, jobs — that continued to pump up his already excited base. Those tweets, a GOP operative tells CNN, make Trump "like Journey who won't stop playing 'Don't Stop Believing.'"

The source went on to explain that Trump "only plays the same song to his base, every tweet is basically the same," and said "he only trusts what got him the presidency in unique circumstances in 2016." That could explain why, along with playing one Journey hit, the president has humored ongoing "lock her up" chants at rallies two years after he beat Hillary Clinton.

But this source may want to be careful comparing Republican messaging to a band that Trump nearly tore apart. When three Journey bandmates visited Trump in the White House last year, the only remaining original member didn't go, Billboard writes. Guitarist Neal Schon faithfully stuck by the band's creed to "never be used and exploited by anyone, especially band members for politics or any one religion," he later wrote in Facebook post.

Perhaps it's best if Trump sticks with some tried and true favorites for his rallies and metaphors. May we suggest that one single hit by Kid Rock?

He’s Still Here!
(Parody of Steve Perry’s We’re Still Here)


Under the neon lights, T*R*U*M*P claims this town,
No one can take him down,
No! Not tonight!
Media Boys and Media Girls,
Runnin’ Wild

Burning like a fallin’ star,
Yesterday’s news, that’s what they are,
Silent Majority carry on,
Come together in the same ole song

He’s still here,
After the fake news,
After the failed coups, he wins!
He’s still here,
Where his voice is sayin’
“Make America Great Again!”
(Brother to Brother)

Another night, Another town,
Packed arenas all around,
Make America Great Again!

Changing his name to Drumpf on message boards,
They can never tarnish his name,
Patriotic hearts reach fearlessly in the night

He’s still here,
After the fake news,
After the failed coups, he wins!
He’s still here,
Where his voice is sayin’
“Make America Great Again!”
(Sister to Sister)

We’re all together
(You know the current president cares)
We are…
(We will)
Always
(Be Together)

He’s still here,
After the fake news,
After the failed coups, he wins!
He’s still here,
Where his voice is sayin’
“Make America Great Again!”
(Brother to Brother)
Brother to Brother
(Sister to Sister)

He’s still here,
Where his voice is sayin’
“You made America Great Again!”

Can’t Stop Cryin’
(Parody of Steve Perry’s No More Cryin’)

Well, media told me that I couldn’t lose,
But then I lost to an unknown black guy from Chicago,
But this time I would beat T*R*U*M*P,
Media could cover up my fabrications,
Hold me up when I was low, low,
The Electoral College really blows

Can’t stop cryin’,
Cause I won’t run again, no, I won’t, no, I won’t,
Can’t stop cryin’,
Cause I won’t run again, no, I won’t, no, I won’t

I’m so down, I feel so stupid,
All those lies, and surprise! I am not the president,
It’s a wasted life at the bottom of a bottle,
In the dark of the night, I start to remember,
The Electoral College really blows

Can’t stop cryin’,
Cause I won’t run again, no, I won’t, no, I won’t

When media told me America really wants me,
I was all so happy, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Then they told me I had lost a sure thing,
And the president is somebody else

Can’t stop cryin’,
Cause I won’t run again, no, I won’t, no, I won’t,
Can’t stop cryin’,
Cause I won’t run again, no, I won’t, no, I won’t
