Members of Mastodon are making their feelings known when it comes to President Donald Trump.
In a recent interview with UK’s ”Rock Sound”, the subject of musicians dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic came up. Dailor didn’t pull any punches with his response.
“Our fucking president is just the worst person,” Dailor said. “I remember being a kid and seeing Donald Trump on TV, on Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous, being eight years old and going, ‘That guy sucks. That guy’s a dick. He doesn’t care about anybody but himself. He’s just a rich, spoiled brat.’ And I knew that as a kid, you know what I mean? How could [anyone] think that guy cares about anybody but himself?”
Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher, seems to feel the same way as his bandmate. In a recent interview on the ”Rock & Roll Beer Guy” podcast, he was asked why he thinks that what appear to be intelligent people, are falling for Coronavirus lies.
Kelliher said, “It all stems from these idiot Trump supporters who believe everything that this orange shitstain says. He’s so wobbly, it’s ridiculous that anyone would still, to this day, take him seriously and believe that he has your best interests in his agenda. He does not, and it’s obvious.
“What it is, is he wants to blame everything on Obama… ‘Cause he’s a total racist. So just out of spite, he wants to undo everything that Obama’s done. And in doing so, he’s undone the American population. People are picking sides. Now it doesn’t matter what your beliefs are — you’re either Democrat or Republican. You can’t be bipartisan; you’re just one or the other to the death. It doesn’t matter what Donald Trump says — you just believe everything blindly.
“That’s why when if someone suggests that, ‘It’s a political thing,’ or, ‘It’s a ploy by the Democrats to make me look bad,’ it’s, like, ‘No. You’re looking bad on your own, buddy. You are completely capable of looking bad on your own.’ So that’s where it’s all stemming from. And now people are, ‘Oh, this is a hoax. We’re gonna do what we wanna do,’ and ‘freedom’ and all this bullshit.
“If everyone just stayed in their house for, like, three weeks, then this shit would be over with and we could about our lives,” he went on. “But they won’t, because they wanna defy what they think are the Democrats, and for political motivations, to defy anybody who has any brains behind them, really, and science. They wanna just go outside and go back to work. And you can’t do that. We’re never gonna get back to work with this attitude.”
