The Rolling Stones object to the use of their song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at Donald Trump’s rallies (“Shame that tune,” Weekend, July 10). Its mildly Marxist view that “you get what you need” is clearly out of synch with billionaire Trump’s lifestyle anyway. Maybe the Stones should encourage him to use the much more appropriate “Sympathy for the Devil.”
