John Oliver on politicians who use popular songs without permission

John Oliver talks about politicians who use popular songs for self-promotion not merely without permission but often apparently without a lot of thought. Donald Trump has hilariously used “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” (at the end of the Republican National Convention) and “It’s the End of the World As We Know It.”

Then a group of musicians — Anne and Nancy Wilson, Michael Bolton, Usher, Dan Reynolds, Cyndi Lauper, Cheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, and Josh Groban — musically urge politicians to seek permission first.
