President Donald Trump’s visit Tuesday to a Honeywell plant in Arizona that makes masks was marked by some unusual music choices amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Trump did not wear a mask during the visit, but he did don goggles.
It’s not clear who selected the music, the White House or Honeywell. However, the Washington Times notes the tune is often featured at Trump rallies.
Other songs played during the visit ― including “God Bless the U.S.A.,” “Eye of the Tiger” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” ― are also staples of Trump’s political events.
I can think of no better metaphor for this presidency than Donald Trump not wearing a face mask to a face mask factory while the song “Live and Let Die” blares in the background. pic.twitter.com/mJzU1HW7HA

I’m sorry, but I just wasn’t expecting this to be the day Trump went to a mask factory without a mask to touch all the masks while “Live and Let Die” blasts over the loudspeaker. https://t.co/UdfuvculCm

“Live and Let Die.” That’s the song that Trump had pumped into the mask factory during his visit. Seriously. Like, seriously.pic.twitter.com/zidsZhfxmu

Someone at the Honeywell factory played “Live and Let Die” while Trump walked around the mask plant without a mask today.
