He Did It His Way! Trump’s Choreographed Departure On Air Force One Was A Microcosm Of His Presidency.

One  entertaining detail that got lost from Inauguration Day is the dramatic and seemingly choreographed exit that President Trump staged, three hours before Joe Biden was sworn in as president.

As Trump departed Joint Base Andrews on Air Force One, the Frank Sinatra song “My Way” was blaring from the loudspeakers.

The choice of song, and the scripted nature of his departure, was openly mocked on social media by media members who don’t like Trump, and it brought to mind a scene from Trump’s own inauguration exactly four years to the date earlier, when he and Melania danced to the same song at their inauguration party.

A number of the media members who commented on it brought up a little known fact that Sinatra reportedly did not like Trump, and according to a former manager of Sinatra’s, The Chairman of the Board once sent a message to Trump, telling him to go “f*&^ himself.”


Frank Siantra’s daughter Nancy Sinatra has also been quoted as saying her dad “loathed” Trump.  Sinatra died in 1998.

While liberal tv network commentators mocked Trump at his perfectly timed exit that coincided with the chorus of the song, Trump probably felt he had the last laugh, as he would soon land in Florida, to figure out his next move from the comforts of his 62,500 square foot, 126-room Mar-a-Lago  retreat in Palm Beach.
