"Hey, do I get residuals from this movie?"
Twitter was quick to take down a Donald Trump campaign video for copyright infringement after it used music from "The Dark Knight Rises".
On Monday night the President retweeted a fan-made 2020 campaign video, which used Hans Zimmer's rousing "Why Do We Fall?" from the 2012 superhero flick; Warner Bros immediately threatened legal action and had the clip removed.
Hell yes! I finally became a villain in the bizzaro underworld of the @realDonaldTrump . I can’t say that I understand what I’m doing in it, but I seem to have a high disapproval rating from the President. Hmmm, cool. Hey, do I get residuals from this movie? https://t.co/6rqh3PNetC— Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) April 10, 2019
"First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you a racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote. Proved them all wrong. Trump: The Great Victory. 2020," the crudely edited film trailer-style vid declares.

Lots of Rosie's followers asked if she had seen the clip, and she replied forcibly in the affirmative.

he is a fucking disease
"I am in great company. He is a f--king disease," she wrote. "trump is a f--king moronic despot. 2020 is coming and he will be gone."
Some wondered why she was included in the "propaganda" video; She speculated: "he wants me. he wants me bad. he can't quit me."
When one follower said the video was worthy of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, another declared: "I hope @rosie adds this to her highlights reel. #badgeofhonor," which Rosie retweeted.
Third baddie Schumer has yet to respond.
