KISS’ iconic bass guitarist Gene Simmons posted a tweet about President Donald Trump who tested positive for coronavirus and reminded once again the importance of following the necessary precautions to be protected by the disease.
The bassist and co-lead singer of KISS, Gene Simmons has been using his social media accounts to express his personal opinions on certain political and social issues in the United States. Particularly, since the very first days of the coronavirus pandemic, Simmons has been warning his fans to wear masks and be careful about social distancing.
Recently, the current president Donald Trump announced he and his wife Melania Trump were tested positive for COVID-19 on his official Twitter account.

In the tweet, KISS legend simply wished well for the President and his wife and reminded his fans how significant it was to follow the measures suggested by the officials.
Here’s what Gene Simmons stated in his recent tweet:
“We all wish the best for the President & First Lady. We hope it isn’t serious. Please wear your masks and stay a safe distance from each other (10 ft).”
As you might remember, Gene often criticized the actions of the current government to prevent the further spread of the disease with his social media posts. He previously claimed that Donald Trump was too late to make statements regarding coronavirus measures and did too little action to protect the citizens of the United States.
Although most of his fans and followers appreciated Gene Simmons acting in good faith, others suggested his comments might have been sarcastic considering he was among the people who criticized the President often on social media.
