Eddie Vedder took another shot at the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump a few days ago at Pearl Jam’s show at Madison Square Garden in New York. Near the end of “Wishlist,” Vedder began singing critical lyrics about Donald Trump, while praising Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. He also sang a lyric about himself potentially being a better President than Trump.

‘Even I’d be better than some of these men.’

‘Fuck Donald Trump.’

‘It’s like his penis gets smaller every time he says huge.’

‘I like Hillary but I can feel the Bern.’

‘All you young voters it’s time you were heard.’

‘Please don’t stop don’t ever give up.’

06. Low Light
(This one goes to Jen and Tim tonight and there mom and pa(?))
07. Release
08. Even Flow (Ed throws the mic to a guy on the barricade who sings for a bit. When he is done he throws the mic back. Ed smiles and laughs and yells at the guy off mic “yeah, you’re in the band man!” We find out the guys name is Kenneth and Ed thanks him and suggests that if his voice goes after two and half hours Kenneth might have to come up. “I’m glad I have back up.”)
09. I Got ID
10. In Hiding
(Ed says he looked up the first show the band played in New York. It was the Marquee club. He has absolutely no memory of it but he feels like he already remembers this show. He says the next song is for a friend of his who passed away a long time ago. This is for Enrico Salvatore Rizzo. {this is the character Dustin Hoffman played in “Midnight Cowboy” also known as “Ratso”)
11. Rats
12. Down
(Ed says something about a musician friend of his that he lost track of and he was wondering how he was doing. He plays part of the next song by that musician. This is all a ruse to play a song from the film Ishtar.-I may have to correct these details I missed much of what was said. )

13. Dangerous Business-(Paul Williams) from the film Ishtar
14. Wishlist (Ed lyrically expresses interest in running for president, confident he could do a better job than Trump or Cruz and manages to make a small penis joke. And while he likes Hillary he is feeling ‘The Bern’. He goes on to encourage young people to go out and vote and stay active politically.)

16. Do The Evolution
17. Why Go

Encore Break One
(Ed spots a guy in a Mets Jersey. Ed asks if he is the actual player. He then asks if a young woman can move and stand behind Kenneth (the guy who sang on Even Flow earlier) because Kenneth is in a wheelchair and it is hard for him to see. He promises to make contact with the woman and reciprocate her blowing kisses so Kenneth can see.)
20. The End
(Ed is going to play the next song for Kevin and Kim. Kevin suffers from an autoimmune disease. He wanted to hear Just Breathe for them. Ed also mentions that his wife is doing a lot of work for an organization working on another autoimmune disease called EB. He describes what the organization called EB Research Partnership is doing and thanks Alex Silver.
