Isaac Hayes’ Family Furious Trump Used Song for His Jig in Controversial NRA Speech

The family of late veteran musician Isaac Hayes posted an angry tweet on former President Donald Trump’s use of a Hayes song in his controversial speech at the National Rifle Association convention on Friday.

“The estate and family of Isaac Hayes do not and will never approve of Donald Trump’s use of ‘Hold On I’m Coming’ … at this weekend’s NRA convention.”

The tweet read: “Our condolences are with the victims and families of Uvalde and mass shooting victims everywhere.”

In a bold display of disrespect, Trump slammed gun control in his Friday speech and welcomed all firearms, including weapons of the devastating assault that killed 19 children and two teachers in a mass shooting in Uvalde last week .

Trump then mumbled the pronunciation of a list of victims’ names, which he read with cheesy funeral toll sounds.

Trump wraps up his speech smiling with his fists and wooden dance steps for the 1996 song “Hold On, I’m Coming”, written by Hayes and David Porter and performed by rhythm-and-blues duo Sam and Dave to be done.

The lyrics – including “Just Hold On, I’m Coming” – sounded suspiciously like a promotional song before Uvalde’s dead children were even buried, shockingly inappropriate.

A long list of musicians — from the Rolling Stones to Black Sabbath, Adele, R.E.M., Rihanna and Aerosmith, and the estates of Tom Petty and the Prince — have contacted Trump’s campaign organization, demanding that he promote himself without permission. Stop appropriating their songs. He has alleged that neither the artists nor the songs have anything to do with his posts even remotely.
