More fallout from the entertainment world as the Donald Trump Presidential Campaign continues to use music from artists who don’t support him.
The latest to complain is John Fogerty, who says he find’s it confounding that Trump continues to use the song “Fortunate Son” from his days with Credence Clearwater Revival.
In a Facebook video, the 75 year old musician says he wrote “Fortunate Son” in 1969 at the height of the Vietnam War after he’d been drafted and served in the military.  The song is about rich people using their privilege to get out of the draft.
Trump received six draft deferments during the Vietnam War after a doctor said he suffered from bone spurs in his heels.
So far no comment from the Trump campaign.
