The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger appears to take a hit at President Donald Trump in the teaser to his latest track.
The 77-year-old shared a 45-second clip to new song ‘Pride Before a Fall’ to Twitter on Wednesday in which he sings about ‘overeating, too much tweeting’ in an apparent attack on the president.
Jagger and the rest of The Rolling Stones have already revealed they are anti-Trump, threatening to sue the president earlier this year when he continued to play their songs at his rallies despite multiple cease and desist orders.

Trump has not commented on the lyrics for the new Mick Jagger song
Music icon Jagger doesn’t seem ready yet to give up the feud just yet if the forthcoming song is anything to go by.
The clip shows him performing in the studio, singing: ‘I see the preening, it’s overweening, over eating, too much tweeting, and when my back is turned somebody will push you off the wall.’
‘And just remember that pride, it comes before a fall,’ Jagger continues.
It is not known if ‘Pride Before a Fall’ is set to be a solo Jagger song or will be released as The Rolling Stones.
The president has not responded to the lyrics.

Trump began playing the band’s songs, such as ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, at his campaign rallies in 2016 to fire up attendees.
Yet The Rolling Stones quickly moved to take action to make him stop and have since served multiple cease and desist directives.
In September, they also threatened to sue as the Trump campaign continued to use the songs. He had used it as recently as his July rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma – an indoor event criticized for its potential to spread coronavirus.
The Stones said in a statement that their legal team is working with music rights organization BMI to stop use of their material in Trump’s reelection campaign.

‘The BMI have notified the Trump campaign on behalf of the Stones that the unauthorized use of their songs will constitute a breach of its licensing agreement,´ they said.
‘If Donald Trump disregards the exclusion and persists, then he would face a lawsuit for breaking the embargo and playing music that has not been licensed.´
Trump has since obliged and now uses The Village People ‘YMCA’ as his campaign rally go-to.
The Rolling Stones were not alone among artists calling on Trump’s campaign to stop using their music.
In September, Tom Petty’s estate also issued Trump a formal cease and desist order for using his 1989 song I Won’t Back Down during his sparsely-attended Tulsa rally.
The same week Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie demanded Trump stop using their songs, after he used their 2018 hit song High Hopes during a rally in Phoenix.
And Aerosmith has repeatedly sent cease and desist warnings to the former Democrat for using Dream On and Livin’ on the Edge at his rallies in 2015 and 2018
Grammy Award-winning musician Neil Young lashed out at Trump in 2018 after hearing one of his songs played against his wishes during Trump’s pre-midterm campaign rallies.
The Canadian-born musician admonished Trump for using his 1990 single, ‘Rockin´ in the Free World,’ in spite of earlier warnings.
In 2018, Rihanna tweeted that neither she nor her people ‘would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies’ after Trump played her 2008 hit Please Don’t Stop the Music.
That same day, Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose tweeted that the twice-divorced father-of-five was a ‘s***bag’ for ignoring his ‘formal request’ to stop using Sweet Child ‘o Mine from 1987.
Trump and Jagger have also clashed on other issues such as climate change.
According to NME, Jagger last year accused the president of underplaying the threat of climate change.
‘We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the US, where all the environmental controls that were put in place – that were just about adequate – have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,’ Jagger said.
‘The US should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way,’ he added.
In the same interview, Jagger also bewailed ‘the polarization and incivility in public life’, although the one-time bad boy of 1960s rock admitted he was ‘not always for civility’ himself.
‘But when you see it now… in so many countries, including my own this last week, but particularly the US, it’s a sea change.
‘It is not about manners,’ Jagger insisted, saying he was fearful about ‘where all this polarization and rudeness and lying is going to lead us.’
