Metallica’s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett made a hard statement about President Donald Trump in his last interview with Billboard. He said:
“I’m just waiting to get into a personal Twitter war with him. I’m just waiting.
Okay. Let’s sit with that statement right there. What does that tell you about the man? What does that tell you? Any normal, educated person who has a pretty good grip on reality — evenly balanced, could even be a centrist sort of person, not left or not right, any person who I just described — upon hearing something like that would just think, “What the fuckin’ fairy tale did that come out of?
For me, a good leader is someone with integrity, honesty and altruism, and a general sense of what is right and what’s wrong.
We don’t have that in our leadership right now, and that puts me in a state of awareness and attentiveness, and it puts me in a state of wait and see what will happen. But if anything happens that I’m not okay with, I’m going to be super vocal about it for the first time in my life.“
Later in the interview he talked about human equality and said:
“I believe in equal ground for everyone. I believe in equal opportunity and I believe that everyone is equal. That guy [Trump] doesn’t even believe in that! He does not believe that everyone is equal.“
Recently, Trump’s pinata was destroyed at the Guns N’ Roses live show. It looks like Axl Rose will continue to attack Trump. Click here to watch those moments.
