As always, this is a classification that mixes those who delight the open crowd with admirably intelligent and vague choices that make you wonder how it takes so long for the former president to troll the choices of Spotify and/or critics.

The former president shared his choices on social media with a note : ” Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I got some valuable advice from our family music guru Sasha to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to. ”
