As the fallout continues from Wednesday's storming of the U.S. Capitol building by supporters of President Trump, the legacy manager for late 1980s pop singer Laura Branigan is condemning a video that purports to show the Trump blasting one of her client's most beloved hits before the violent mob attacked the seat of American democracy.
"It's absolutely appalling to hear 'Gloria' being played in the background of a widely-circulating video of Pres. Trump from yesterday, given the tragic, unsettling, & shameful happenings that occurred at the US Capitol," tweeted Kathy Golik, the legacy manager for Branigan, who died in 2004 at age 52. Golik was referring to a video that appears to have been shot by Donald Trump Jr. in a backstage tent before the outgoing one-term president took the stage to whip up the crowd, encouraging them to walk down to the Capitol to continue their protest of the election results. A short time later, hundreds of Trump supporters attacked the building in a shocking rampage that has resulted in at least five deaths and bipartisan calls for Trump to either be impeached for a second time or removed from office immediately.
