'We needed 11,000 more votes': Mick Jagger mocks Trump during concert

Before playing the last song in a concert Friday in Atlanta, Georgia, singer Mick Jagger mocked former President Donald Trump and reminded concertgoers to vote in November.

"We wanted to play 'Wild Horses,'" Jagger reportedly told the crowd. "All we needed was 11,000 more votes. There's a more important vote coming up in November. Don't forget to vote in that one."

Jagger seemed to be referencing a phone call from Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger asking him to "find 11,780 votes" so Trump could win the state.

While Democrats and Trump-haters want to believe that Trump was asking Raffensberger to cheat by finding votes that were not actually there, Trump and his supporters say they believed there were enough valid votes out there for him to win and that's what they were asking Raffensberger to find.

Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said in an emailed statement to Newsweek about Jagger's comments, "Mick can't always get what he wants. President Trump will return to the White House because Americans are sick and tired of having a weak, failed, and dishonest leader like Crooked Joe Biden."

Jagger also apparently referenced porn actress Stormy Daniels during another concert in New Jersey, saying, "I was a bit worried about the weather tonight. I thought we were going to get a Stormy Daniels but we're all right."
