Trump Just Shared A 2020 Campaign Video That Uses The Score From ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ And Warner Bros. Is Having None Of It

Donald Trump stole music from the cinematic score from The Dark Knight Rises for a 2020 reelection campaign video that was promptly taken down after Warner Bros. Studios filed a complaint for copyright infringement.

Tuesday’s video had already amassed over a million views before it was removed hours after posting, according to Buzzfeed News.

He knows all too well the violation in using unauthorized music, or does he? This is just another example of the reckless behavior of someone in power doing as he pleases and feigning ignorance.

But the jokester in the Oval Office outplays the Joker every time.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros. issued a statement on Tuesday, confirming its plan to have the video removed.

“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

The two-minute video utilized Hans Zimmer’s song “Why Do We Fall?” from 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment from Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Here is a snippet of what was heard from Trump’s campaign video.

Buzzfeed described the video as a montage of prominent Democratic figures like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer, juxtaposed against images of Trump during his first two years in office.

The superimposed text read:

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist.”

Someone managed to get a hold of the obsolete ad.

Yeah, “one would think.” But we’re not dealing with a normal administration here.

Buzzfeed interestingly noted that after AT&T acquired WarnerMedia — whose assets include Warner Bros. — the U.S. Justice Department failed to block the Time Warner merger as one of Trump’s 2016 failed campaign promises.

Gotham City is no match for Washington when the president of the U.S. has gone bats***.
