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

Marching band performs Daft Punk at Paris Bastille Day parade

Every year on July 14th, France celebrates Bastille Day to commemorate the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Which, of course, meant the marching band played a Daft Punk medley.

A marching military band performed classical pieces including a tribute to the city of Nice, struck previous year by a terror attack, and "Nissa La Bella", according to The Local, before bursting into a melody of hits by native electronic duo Daft Punk.

The performance was part of this year's Bastille Day military parade in Paris, and included a number of the EDM duo's most iconic tracks including "Get Lucky", "One More Time" and "Harder Better Faster Stronger".


Fair enough, you're the Leader of the Free World, you maybe don't have time to keep up with the pop charts, but most people would at least try to feign an interest in what's going on directly in front of their eyes.

There are many gaps in Donald Trump's knowledge.

It's somewhat fitting the music of Daft Punk would close out the Bastille Day celebration.
