Nickelback and Twitter tag-team Trump, removing popular meme from President’s feed


There is no denying that the President is phenomenal when it comes to the not-so-subtly art form known as “trolling”.

Trump has always been at the head of the class when it comes to goading his rivals into a rage.  Not only has be used his TV time to get under the skin of those who would oppose him, but he has been mightily proficient via his favorite platform, Twitter, as well.

As Trump and Joe Biden continue their 2020-sparked back-and-forth squabbling this week, the President landed a solid dig at the former VP via social media, combining an infamous Nickelback song and a photograph of Biden golfing with Ukrainian natural gas executives.

On Wednesday, the 73-year-old Trump got in on the action, tweeting a video with the caption “LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH!” The video showed a clip of Biden denying that he had ever talked to his son Hunter about his overseas business dealings. Then it cuts to Kroeger singing “look at this photograph” while holding up a 2014 photo showing Joe and Hunter Biden golfing with businessman Devon Archer. Hunter and Archer served together on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings.

By Thursday morning, the video had been taken offline. In its place was the message “this media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.” Records show that the takedown request was made by Warner Music Group, which holds rights to the video.

Not everyone agrees with the move, however.

Cornell University legal scholar James Grimmelmann told Ars that Donald Trump has a strong fair use claim. The video only used a few seconds of the Nickelback music video, and it does so in a way that poses no threat to sales of the original song—two factors that typically point toward a finding of fair use.

The move sparked concerns that Twitter was effectively censoring the President – something that the media magnates have certainly threaten to do in the past.
