2019: where 80s alt-rock bands are feuding with the President Of The United States.
REM bassist Mike Mills was none too happy with Donald Trump after he tweeted a meme that used ‘Everybody Hurts’.
The now deleted meme overlayed the hit track over shots of Democrat Congress members looking upset during the State Of The Union Address.
So it perhaps came as no major surprise that the politically charged band bit back at the President, with Mills calling Trump #PresidentA***** and imploring Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to delete it.

The tweet was later removed due to copyright infringement so it looks like the band had the last laugh.
