Trump Appears Unamused By French Military Band's Daft Punk Medley

Donald Trump Bastille Day

Trump, who's now hanging out in France with President Emmanuel Macron, was watching the Bastille Day parade when the army casually performed a medley of French electro duo Daft Punk.

Among those in attendance were newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron and his USA counterpart Donald Trump.

However, there was something special in store for the people of France today: a military band had prepared a medley of one of France's greatest musical exports, Daft Punk.

Commenting on the video, one user wrote: " I love how France under Macron is now just trolling Trump en masse.

Maybe Trump prefers Daft Punk's less commercial work and feels that brass band covers dilute the potency of electronic music, making a mockery of the genre.

The holiday commemorates the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille, a pivotal point in the French Revolution. There's no denying that the French duo are icons, so what better way to pay tribute to French history then with four-on-the-floor beats from the country's coolest band.

The two members of Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, are known for always wearing costumes, including being dressed as robots and often collaborate with other artists.
