Billy Joel Just Publicly Humiliated The Donald–Oblivious Idiot Trump THANKS HIM For It (TWEETS)

Billy Joel made a fool of Donald Trump this weekend with a shoutout tribute to the orange man in front of a capacity crowd at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Trump made a fool of himself shortly thereafter by showing he has no clue what sarcasm is and thanking Joel for the kind gesture:

The “very kind” shoutout went something like this:

That’s right…the “tribute” to Trump was “The Entertainer,” which if Trump actually liked Joel’s music he would know was a shot at his farce of a candidacy. The iconic song includes the lyrics:

I am the entertainer
And I know just where I stand
Another serenader
And another long-haired band
Today I am your champion
I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you’ll forget my name
And I won’t be here in another year
If I don’t stay on the charts

I am the entertainer
And I’ve had to pay my price
The things I did not know at first
I learned by doin’ twice
Ah, but still they come to haunt me
Still they want their say
So I’ve learned to dance with a hand in my pants
I let ’em rub my neck and I write ’em a check
And they go their merry way

I am the entertainer
Been all around the world
I’ve played all kinds of palaces
And laid all kinds of girls
I can’t remember faces
I don’t remember names
Ah, but what the hell
You know it’s just as well
‘Cause after a while and a thousand miles
It all becomes the same

It’s a song about the trials and tribulations of being in the business of entertaining people, you twit. Billy Joel just thanked you for keeping him entertained, not for inspiring him or making him believe you were good for anything else.┬áThe song is a testament to the futility of your existence because unlike Billy Joel, you have zero talent and nothing worthwhile to offer anyone.

This wasn’t the first time Joel has made the joke, either. Remember when Trump thought it was hilarious that “New York State Of Mind” was dedicated to Ted Cruz? He failed to recognize that Billy had also dedicated a song to him in Denver. Which song? “The Entertainer,” of course:

It’s good to know a man just a few million votes from access to our nuclear arsenal has a hard time understanding basic humor. It should make critical foreign policy negotiations a hoot.
