“Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of @OzzyOsbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,’ we are sending notice to the Trump campaign they are forbidden from using Ozzy’s music in political ads,” Sharon Osbourne tweeted.

A microphone issue briefly interrupted the first Democratic debate Wednesday night, leading Trump to knock the host networks for the technical difficulty.


.@NBCNews and @MSNBC should be ashamed of themselves for having such a horrible technical breakdown in the middle of the debate," he tweeted during the debate. "Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!"

On Thursday, Trump followed up with an edited video of the debate in which the lights are turned off and the intro to “Crazy Train” is heard in the background.

The president then appears, along with a slogan for his reelection campaign.

Osbourne offered other songs Trump could use from musicians who have voiced support for him in the past, including Kanye WestKanye Omari West'Miracle on Ice' team captain says he's getting fierce criticism for wearing 'Keep America Great' hat Russian pranksters posing as Thunberg claim Sanders welcomed her support Yes, Democrats have to defend their African-American base against Trump MORE. “Maybe @KayneWest ('Gold Digger'), @KidRock ('I Am the Bullgod') or @TedNugent ('Stranglehold') allow,” she tweeted.

Osbourne has previously said she wasn’t a fan of Trump as a presidential candidate, saying in 2015 that “if he was running for mayor of New York, or he was running to be a senator, God bless you. But to represent this country at this particular time,” he wasn’t the right fit.
