Albert Einstein once defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” I guess you could officially call the Republican National Convention insane, then. Despite former Republian candidate Mike Huckabee paying $25,000 for playing “Eye of the Tiger” without permission at a Kim Davis Rally, the Republican National Convention decided to do the same fucking thing hoping that they wouldn’t face legal consequences.
Apparently, they played a song by rock band Queen at the convention and Freddie Mercury must be rolling over in his fucking grave. The band posted a tweet earlier today stating that the use of their music at the convention was entirely unauthorized.
An unauthorised use at the Republican Convention against our wishes – Queen

If this situation is anything like what happened with Huckabee and Survivor, someone’s going to have to pay up. Maybe Trump can give them a small loan of a million dollars so they can afford the settlement fees.
