When President Donald Trump departed the White House on Wednesday morning, Frank Sinatra’s iconic song “My Way” was blaring in the background.
The song is one of Trump’s favorites, notably featuring when Trump and former first lady Melania Trump danced to the tune at an inauguration reception in January 2017.
The media were predictably irked by the song, triggering pundits and allegedly straight reporters to mock Trump.

Trump, on the other hand, has spoken glowingly about Sinatra in one of his books.
“My Way” by Frank Sinatra was played as Trump departed. Sinatra is on record as having hated Donald Trump.
CNN commentator Keith Boykin mocked, “Trump leaves on Air Force One to the Frank Sinatra song ‘My Way.’ This series finale of the Trump Reality Show has been written, directed and produced by Donald Trump himself.”
