Trump Walks on Stage to Song From ‘Les Miserables’

Donald Trump started a rally Friday by playing music from Les Mis, in relation to an Internet meme regarding his campaign.

The Hill reports:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump walked onto the stage at his Friday evening rally in Miami to a song from the musical “Les Misérables.”

As Trump walked out, “Do You Hear the People Sing” blared on the speakers and an image behind him read “Les Deplorables.”

The image is a reference to the comment Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton made last week in which she said his supporters fall into two categories — one was a “basket of deplorables.”

The “basket of deplorables” took off on social media following Clinton’s remark. One meme that circulated following the comment was the “Les Miserables” image that Trump displayed behind him at the start of his rally. Many on Twitter pointed out that the specific image may have come from Reddit.
