80-year-old Mick Jagger took a jab at this GOP Governor who didn’t take it lying down

May 14, 2024

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is still kicking it after more than 60 years in music as the Stones continue to roll on.

And during one recent tour stop Jagger spoke out about American politics.

But when the 80-year-old Mick Jagger took a jab at this GOP Governor, he didn’t take it lying down.

Legendary singer and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger recently launched an unusual and oddly vague attack at Louisiana’s Republican Governor Jeff Landry.

Returning to the stone age

The attack on the GOP Governor came during a recent performance by The Rolling Stones at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

The Rolling Stones had just finished a performance of their hit song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” 

Then Jagger unleashed his wrath on Louisiana’s GOP Governor.

The Associated Press reported that after the song Jagger began talking about inclusion.

That’s when Jagger allegedly said of Landry, “We want to include him too. Even if he wants to take us back to the Stone Age.”

The Rolling Stones frontman did not spell out exactly how Landry was taking people back to the Stone Age.

But that didn’t stop Landry from firing back at Jagger.

Landry took to X to respond to the 80-year-old singer – “You can’t always get what you want. The only person who might remember the Stone Age is Mick Jagger. Love you buddy, you’re always welcome in Louisiana!”

Landry ended the post with #LoveMyCountryMusic.

While Jagger didn’t specify how Governor Landry was taking Americans back to the Stone Age, there is quite a bit of speculation on the reason.

No love for Donald Trump

Jagger has been a vocal opponent of former President Donald Trump.

After Trump won the 2016 Presidential election, Jagger said, “Everyone outside the U.S. is kind of mystified, I’d say, that’s the polite word.”

And the Rolling Stones have also threatened legal action against Trump for using their song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at his campaign rallies.

Meanwhile, Landry gave an early endorsement of Trump in the 2024 Presidential election.

“The great people of Louisiana overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump twice, and I stand with them,” Landry said in a January statement. “That is why I am honored to endorse one of the greatest Presidents in our country’s history, Donald J. Trump.”

“President Trump helped us make history last year, as we ended eight years of Democrat governance in Baton Rouge,” he continued, referring to his election as Governor last November.

Landry was endorsed by Trump in his campaign for Governor last year.

“With President Trump leading the Republican ticket in November, his America First platform will deliver sweeping victories across the country, from The White House to the State House,” the newly elected Governor continued.

Last month, a poll found that Landry had a 56% favorable rating and just a 33% unfavorable rating.

It’s clear that Mick Jagger should just stick to making music and leave American politics to Americans.
