Our friends at Twitchy have other tweets confirming Carvalho's claim.
Other concert-goers said the crowd booed when Jagger mentioned Obama's name:
Mick Jagger just said President Obama and everyone booed. And i'm not embellishing.— RAS (@RASinners) June 25, 2013
As for Jagger, folks shouldn't be that surprised about his position on Obama.
Earlier this month, he revealed himself as a "closet conservative" while admitting a deep admiration towards former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and confusion about how some in his country celebrated her death.
Of course, his liberal fans likely will see that as sympathy for the devil.
