Donald Trump was playing a different tune after his indictment, we hear.
After the presidential hopeful was indicted on 37 counts for allegedly mishandling classified documents, he handled the DJ duties at his Bedminster, NJ, golf club.
And some Trump watchers scanned his set for meaning.
At his Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, Trump is known to play music from his iPad during dinners, we’ve previously reported.
His regular playlist includes hits from soundtracks such as “Phantom of the Opera,” “West Side Story” and “Titanic.” The Village People’s “YMCA” is another fave, as is Bruce Springsteen.
On the night Trump announced he had been indicted, however, a source told us: “The Donald got out his iPad at his Bedminster golf club during dinner . . . and did a set in the middle of all the news about his indictment.”
The source surmised that “Elvis Presley was on his mind, as he spun several of the King’s hits, including ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ and ‘Hound Dog.’ ” They added, “Some in the room said they thought Trump was referring to President Biden,” whose Justice Department is “hounding” Trump with its federal criminal charges against him.
Since Trump loves soundtracks, the Elvis songs were actually from film director Baz Luhrmann’s recent biopic, we hear.
The Boss was also prominently featured — this being the Garden State — “including two [songs] with pointed lyrics, ‘Born To Run’ and ‘Born in the USA,’ ” said our source.
Then, “he switched to Aretha Franklin and James Brown and wrapped it up with opera legend [Luciano] Pavarotti and hits from the Three Tenors.”
“He remains very upbeat and positive in public, and is in full campaign mode,” said the spy of Trump, who pleaded not guilty yesterday in Miami federal court.
The source said that during Trump’s DJ set, the candidate was “glad-handing members [and] reassuring donors he’s innocent and being targeted” by the Democrats, natch.
