Mick Jagger, 75, took a jab at POTUS Trump during a Rolling Stones live show, referencing the latter’s recent claim over US Independence weekend that the American army had seized airports during the 8-year-long American Revolutionary War in the 1770-80s – more than a century before the first aeroplane came along, having been first tested by the Wright brothers, Wilbur and Orville in the early 1900s.

The Rolling Stones, who are currently touring the US following a delay due to Mick Jagger’s recent heart surgery, previously issued a statement, calling out the head of state for using their hits "You Can’t Always Get What You Want" and "Start Me Up" during his rallies.
