Donald Trump has another foe coming after him. This one is Steven Tyler, frontman of the world famous Aerosmith band. Tyler just sent Trump a cease and desist letter demanding that Trump stop playing Aerosmith songs at his rallies. The latest Trump rally had a song by Aerosmith playing as fans gathered there. Of course, it was Jim Acosta who flamed this fire a bit when he recorded it on video and posted it on Twitter.
Trump and Aerosmith have a feud that goes back quite a bit, as this isn’t the first time that Tyler has asked Trump to stop playing their music, according to reports. Trump had a good response back in the day when he claimed that by him playing Aerosmith songs at his events, he then gave Aerosmith more publicity than they’ve had in years. It’s a fact that Trump stated this and is quoted below. Whether or not the amount of publicity is able to be measured is unknown. However, Aerosmith hasn’t really been all that popular since the 90’s, and that was back when MTV still played at least a few songs per day compared to their run of the mill reality shows nowadays.
Here is Jim Acosta’s tweet. Some might say he was being a “rat” when he posted this video as if he was purposely trying to get Aerosmith’s attention to let them know that Trump was blasting their song. Anyone who’s a music fan and a Trump fan would know that just playing songs before an event does not necessarily mean the band supports the cause. It’s just music before an event and a good song is a good song. Nothing wrong with enjoying a little bit of old-fashioned rock music, right?
What’s wrong with playing a little bit of Aerosmith before a Trump rally? The last thing that people are thinking is if the musical artists are supporters. Maybe they just like the songs, like their president, and want to have a fun time. If Steven Tyler wants to be paid for his music, then that’s something different. It seems like they just don’t want to be mixed up in politics, or maybe they secretly don’t like Trump. Maybe we should ask Steven Tyler himself!

The Hill stated:
“Rock legend Steven Tyler has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the White House demanding that President Trump stop playing Aerosmith songs at his rallies.
“Tyler’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, sent the letter after Trump’s Tuesday night rally in West Virginia, as first reported by Variety. The band’s “Livin’ on the Edge” played as Trump supporters entered the Charleston Civic Center.
“LaPolt’s letter, a copy of which was obtained by Variety, notes that Trump was previously asked to stop using Aerosmith songs twice during his campaign.
“’Mr. Trump is creating the false impression that our client has given his consent for the use of his music, and even that he endorses the presidency of Mr. Trump,” the letter reads.
“LaPolt writes that Aerosmith fans have mistakenly believed that Tyler endorses Trump’s presidency and expressed as much on social media, and says that Trump’s use of the song is a violation of the Lanham Act.
“LaPolt said in the first two cease-and-desist letters, which were related to Trump’s use of “Dream On,” that the issue was neither personal nor political, but an issue of copyright. Tyler is a registered Republican.
“Trump said in 2015 that he had found a “better” song to play instead of “Dream On,” and boasted that the scandal gave Tyler “more publicity … than he’s gotten in 10 years.”
“A number of musical artists have requested that Trump not play their songs at public events, including R.E.M., Twisted Sister, and Elton John.”
Rolling Stone added this to the story:
“Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler has again sent President Trump a cease-and-desist letter for using the band’s music without permission at a political rally.
“In 2015, the singer’s legal team warned the then-Republican presidential candidate over his use of “Dream On” on the campaign trail. Three years later, a Trump rally Tuesday at West Virginia’s Charleston Civic Center featured Aerosmith’s 1993 hit “Livin’ on the Edge,” resulting in another cease-and-desist letter from Tyler, Variety reports.
“’By using ‘Livin’ On The Edge’ without our client’s permission, Mr. Trump is falsely implying that our client, once again, endorses his campaign and/or his presidency, as evidenced by actual confusion seen from the reactions of our client’s fans all over social media,” the cease-and-desist letter stated.
“’This specifically violates Section 43 of the Lanham Act, as it ‘is likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person.’”
“The letter also notes that Trump’s team has ignored the previous cease-and-desist from 2015, making this latest violation a “willful infringement. “What makes this violation even more egregious is that Mr. Trump’s use of our client’s music was previously shut down, not once, but two times, during his campaign for presidency in 2015,” the letter continued.”

Tragic Death Leads To Country Music Star Canceling CMA Awards Appearance
Sometimes, fate comes knocking when we least expect it. That happened to country singer Kenny Chesney last night at the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards). An unexpected death in his family kept him away although he was nominated for “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year.”
No details are available at this time on who the family member is. Chesney did not speak about what happened on Twitter either. Keith Urban took home the Entertainer Of The Year award. But I’m sure the thoughts and prayers of the thousands viewing the awards were with Chesney in his hour of grieving and need. The Daily Caller has more on this sad news and the music awards:
The 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards) took place Wednesday night, but one huge singer was notably absent from the festivities.
Kenny Chesney, 50, was nowhere to be found.
The “American Kids” singer, who was up for the “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year” (for “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”) awards, skipped the show due to a sudden death in the family. No further details about the tragedy are available at this time.
Ahead of the glitzy event, the Country Music Association Twitter account informed its over 750,000 followers that Chesney would not be in attendance.
CMA Musical Event of the Year winner & Entertainer of the Year nominee @KennyChesney will be unable to appear on tonight's telecast due to a death in the family.

Chesney did not address the news on his personal Twitter account, but he did thank his co-performer David Lee Murphy for his hard work on “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” which took home the Musical Event Of The Year award.
Sometimes you hear songs & they just feel good. Occasionally one that feels good says something that people need to hear. That’s how I felt about Everything’s Gonna Be Alright when I heard it. Proud to have been part of this with my friend @davidleemurphy. #musicaleventoftheyear pic.twitter.com/X7l6esqcXq

Alyssa Milano Angers Unhinged Libs For Turning Her Back On Their HERO Avenatti
Alyssa Milano is one of those Hollywood stars on the way out desperate for attention. She has embraced just about every radical leftist cause out there. But give credit where it is due. Milano was doing the right thing when she vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties. Now, she has made a second good call.
Michael Avenatti, bombastic attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, was arrested last night for felony domestic violence. He allegedly punched a woman in the face that is not his wife and the left is in meltdown mode over it.

Chicks on the Right has more on Milano’s change of view:
I mentioned a few days ago, when Alyssa Milano vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties, that it may have been the first and only time I would ever give Alyssa Milano any credit for anything.
Michael Avenatti was arrested on felony Domestic Violence charges last night, and Alyssa realized this wasn’t about “sides.” This was about a man allegedly punching a woman in the face.
Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.
It was later confirmed that the victim was NOT his estranged wife – as originally reported.
HOWEVER – It is important to note that this doesn’t mean the incident didn’t HAPPEN. It means it didn’t happen TO HIS WIFE.
Update: We can confirm that Michael Avenatti (DOB: 02-16-71) was booked this afternoon on a felony domestic violence charge (273.5 PC). His bail is set at $50,000.

This was enough for Alyssa:

Good on her. This IS NOT about sides.
Avenatti has always been scum. I wouldn’t want anything to do with him in the first place. And she’s EXACTLY right. I would be wary any Republican who found himself in the same situation.
But people are REEEALLY ticked off at Alyssa, because you know… Avenatti was supposed to be our PRESIDENT.
Seriously?? Wow! I’m really surprised by your rush to judgment. Guess he’s not valuable to you anymore? I prefer to wait for facts before publicly disavowing and shaming someone. Might want to delete this tweet and hold tight a bit.
— LAintheOC (@LAintheOC) November 15, 2018
I'm not a fan of Michael Avenatti. And I believe victims should be given the utmost deference.
But I would be a slow to judge on this one. I don't know if Avenatti did it or didn't. But I do know that alt-right trolls have been trying to set-up political figures on the left.
— SwerveForThe Girl (@SfortheG) November 15, 2018
“Believe all women” …or call them alt-right trolls. Whatever.
And listen – I get it – we shouldn’t be quick to assume someone’s guilty of everything they’re ever accused of. But here’s a question: how many of these people stood up for Kavanaugh?
Before anyone judges Mr. Avenatti he deserves the same due process that everyone in America is entitled to. He has been an advocate of protecting immigrant children for FREE. He is the reason Michael Cohen is speaking to Mueller. Trump, Fox, and GOP hate him and this stinks!!
— Elizabeth Holmes (@HolmesTeganimi) November 15, 2018
DUE PROCESS? That’s a new one.
I read it's on SUSPICION of, NOT proven (yet) abuse. Has it changed? I don't want to condemn the guy into I have more facts. I don't like being judge, jury and executioner.

Again… what about Kavavanugh? Where were y’all then?
Where are the facts? You know the truth. We don't want another good man discarded as Franken was. Let's wait & see.
— linda may (@lindamayb) November 14, 2018
“A good man.” LOLOLOLOLOLOL.
Also how exactly has he been protecting children other than doing self-serving interviews?
Sorry, Avenatti set the new rules. His career should be over just based on the allegation. Truth is immaterial. He wanted to sink a judge with specious unsubstantiated claims. Not only is he in the same boat he has actually been ARRESTED.
