Trump has been running for re-election since he was inaugurated. He blurs the lines between political and presidential events by making political statements at speeches, for example, to the CIA and Boy Scouts.
He is addressing the National Association of Realtors today. I assume this is a presidential event since the White House is carrying it online. However, he talked about “fake news” which is clearly inappropriate. Taxpayers should not have to pay for this. I have written several tweets to news organizations suggesting that they write an article on how often he does this. We should never get used to this or accept it. Sad!
The Beatles were obviously very fond of Larry Williams. They covered three of his songs including “Dizzy Miss Lizzy”. The original is from 1958 and the Beatles version is from 1965. John Lennon also played it in Toronto in 1969.
Williams recorded for Specialty like Little Richard. His records are similar to Little Richard’s; they are loud and fast featuring the piano with more conventional vocals. “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” was not a big hit and only reached 69 on the Billboard chart.
If you are not familiar with him, I encourage you to listen to some of his recordings which are among the best of the original R&B/Rock and Roll of the 1950s. He is one of only five artists I can think of who was covered by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
