Chuck Schumer Created Trump-Era Music Playlist — And It’s All Kinds Of Melancholy

Chuck Schumer: long-time New York politician, United States senator — DJ for the broken-hearted?

The 66-year-old has put together a very comprehensive Spotify playlist for President Trump’s first 100 days, and it’s a rollercoaster of emotions, most of which include irritation and melancholy.

“Music has meant so much these #Trump100days. Shirelles, @springsteen & more here’s my @Spotify #100days playlist,” Schumer tweeted.


Songs include Stevie Wonder’s “You Haven’t Done Nothin,” John Legend’s “Same Old Story,” and Shakira’s “Beautiful Liar.” Pretty transparent, right? Then there are a few rogue ones (“Hotline Bling” and “Three Little Birds”), that don’t appear to have anything to do with Trump, but might just have made it on the list because they’re Schumer’s favorite jams.

If you’re feeling frustrated by these past 100+ days, listen on here.
