Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Pulitzer Prize-Winning Poet Reveals The Trump Prank Paul McCartney Pulled On Him”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

That’s according to the Irish Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, who revealed Thursday how the legendary Beatle pranked him in 2016 by pretending to be the then-president.

Muldoon, a Princeton University professor working with McCartney on his upcoming memoir, told BBC’s Radio 4 “Today” show that soon after he met the musician, he got a phone call. It was, he said, “of all people, Donald Trump, asking me to come down to Washington to act as his poetry czar for the next four years. This would have been in 2016.”

“And, of course, I was rather taken aback,” Muldoon continued. “And it turned out, needless to say, that this was Paul McCartney doing an extremely good impression.”

McCartney’s memoir — titled “The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present” — is slated for release in November. Edited by Muldoon, the book will reportedly chronicle the 78-year-old musician’s life through his songs.

While McCartney has not yet performed his impression of Trump in public, the singer-songwriter did swipe at the ex-president’s climate change denial in the song “Despite Repeated Warnings” from his 2018 album, “Egypt Station.”
