DOG WHISTLE: Brave NBC News reporter posts lyrics to “Brown Sugar,” played before Trump rally

President Trump is in Indiana Thursday night for a rally and NBC News reporter Jonathan Allen, knowing full well that the president personally picks the setlist that plays as the crowd is being led in, thought it important to post the entire lyrics of The Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar.”

Trust us, we were as shocked as you were to finally study the lyrics to a song from 1971.

Here are the lyrics to the Rolling Stones' 'Brown Sugar,' which is playing at the Trump rally right now.

Unbelievable. Why doesn’t Trump just come out in Robert Bryd’s old Klan uniform?

Mr Allen, are you there, live in person? Because sometimes a hosting web site has their own playlist. Right now I'm watching on YouTube and hearing patriotic music. Stop the race-baiting, it's not going to work!

If you're watching on youtube, you're probably watching the Trump TV feed, which I believe just does a rotation of patriotic songs. Most of the playlist tonight is familiar from previous Trump rallies, but I don't remember Brown Sugar playing at the other ones I've been to.

We just thank God that a brave firefighter like Allen is there to report these things.

Did you just "damn kids with your music" to the Rolling Stones? Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

This "rock-n-roll" nonsense is corrupting our youth!

Suddenly, they find Rolling Stones lyrics that have been around for decades problematic because Trump. JFC journalism is dead.

Digging into the big tub of paste tonight I see.

Yes. This is a Rolling Stones song. They made it. It's music.

Good on Trump for revealing racist Rolling Stones lyrics.

Those limey bastards!

Yeah, maybe take it up with Mick Jagger and every radio station that’s played that track over the last several decades.
