Nancy Sinatra, the singer, responded to a CNN report that claims she was “not happy” that President Donald Trump was “using father’s song at inauguration.”

News this week broke that Trump and wife Melania will use Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” as their first dance at the Liberty Ball on Friday.

On Twitter, in a now-deleted tweet, Sinatra wrote that she wasn’t happy with the story.

“That’s not true. I never said that. Why do you lie, CNN?” she tweeted, as Fox News reported.


“Oh, man! I’m not angry,” she later tweeted. “What a rotten spin to put on a harmless joke.”

She also wrote, “I’m not sure why this became such a big deal. It was really just a joke.”

And she also told a another user about her thoughts toward the new president: “Actually I’m wishing him the best. A good president helps the entire world. I don’t believe anyone tries to be a bad president.”

For her part, Sinatra wasn’t a supporter of President Trump, and she has tweeted at users to sign a petition from the ACLU.

“Day 1 of Trump Administration: ACLU filed a FOIA request. Let’s hold the president accountable – take action now,” she wrote.
