Louisiana governor knocks Mick Jagger over ‘stone age’ crack

Louisiana governor knocks Mick Jagger over ‘stone age’ crack

Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry (R) poked back at Mick Jagger Thursday night after the Rolling Stones frontman knocked his policies during a performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Thursday.

“We’re a welcoming crowd, aren’t we?” Jagger said to the crowd, per NBC’s local affiliate. “I hope Mr. Landry is enjoying the show. He’s real inclusive you know. He’s trying to take us back to the stone age.”

Landry supports a restrictive abortion ban and has backed various bills targeting the LGBTQ community. He responded to Jagger in a light-hearted post on social platform X, using the frontman’s own lyrics.

“You can’t always get what you want,” Landry said.

“The only person who might remember the Stone Age is @MickJagger,” Landry posted. “Love you buddy, you’re always welcome in Louisiana!”

Jagger is 80 years old and has been performing with the Rolling Stones for more than 60 years.

Landry, the former Louisiana attorney general, won the state’s gubernatorial race with former President Trump’s backing last October. He is the first Republican in the state’s top office since 2016.
