Last Friday the composer for the song ‘YMCA’ said he doesn’t care if Trump uses the song at his rallies, but suggested he should at least do the famous dance:
NY POST – President Trump has drawn heat form stars such as Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and John Fogerty for using their songs before his rallies, but one composer has no problem with it.
Victor Willis of the Village People says Trump is welcome to continue using “YMCA” at his re-election rallies — he just wants to see the commander in chief do the iconic dance.
“’YMCA’ is everybody’s anthem and go-to song for fun. As for the president’s use, I have not granted permission for use at his rallies because permission is not required,” Willis told Bloomberg News through a spokesman.
“If I were a Trump hater maybe I’d sue him simply out of spite,” Willis said. “I am not, and I’m not going to have my lawyers sue the president. But he should at least do the ‘YMCA’ dance while he’s at it.”
Well the other night Trump obliged and did his own little dance to the song:
President Trump dancing to YMCA following his speeches is seriously my favorite thing 🤣

Ok it wasn’t exactly the iconic dance, but I’m sure Willis will take what he can get.
UPDATE: This dance may have come a day before Willis had made his comment, so I may have it out of order. I’m not exactly sure if the Post was the original source for Willis comments.
