Trump Marsalis 4

New Orleans (eTruePolitics) – The artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and the world’s best known trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis, wants to be referred to as a ‘horn’ player from now on. And he’s as serious as a Miles Davis solo.

“I have really sensitive ears and just hearing the sound of the word ‘trump’ makes me cringe,” Marsalis said in a press statement.

“He-who-must-not-be-named needs to put a mute on it,” said Marsalis, in an apparent reference to current Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.

The now nearly inevitable Trumpian response tweeted out minutes after the jazz legend’s announcement.

“Shut up Wynton. All New Orleans musicians love me. When I dance the cha-cha-cha they cheer!”
