Rock icon Mick Jagger mocked President Obama’s recent NSA surveillance controversy Monday night during the Rolling Stones last 50 & Counting tour date at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
“I don’t think President Obama is here tonight, but I’m sure he’s listening in,” joked the iconic frontman between songs, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Along with reported audible boos from the crowd, concert attendees later took to Twitter to echo Jagger’s jab at the U.S. Commander-In-Chief.
As cutting as Jagger’s remarks toward Obama might appear, the soon-to-be 70-year-old also had some words of praise for the President, tweeting Tuesday night: “Was a great show in Washington DC last night ending our US tour. BTW I applaud President Obama's new climate change plans, very refreshing.”
Jagger and company will now head back to the UK to play June 29th’s sold-out Glastonbury Festival. For up-to-date information on the Stones, visit their website, and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
