Former drummer of Dream Theater and current member of Sons Of Apollo, Mike Portnoy, posted the photo of Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris on Instagram and revealed why he decided to talk about politics even if it caused him to lose some fans.

As you might know, Dream Theater’s former drummer Mike Portnoy has been using his social media accounts to comment on various issues. Yet, he prefers to stay in distance with the topics related to the current political problems in the United States.

Recently on Instagram, Mike Portnoy posted the photo of the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris. On the caption of his post, Mike explained why he had chosen not to post anything related to politics until now.

According to his statements, Portnoy had been silent on the issues of politics since he didn’t want to end up in discussions which would cause him to lose the support of some fans. However, Mike changed his mind about his previous decision and shared the reason why.

Apparently, he couldn’t stand the statements and actions of President Donald Trump and he decided to show his support for the opposing candidate at any cost. Moreover, Mike urged his fans to vote in themost important election in US history.’

Here’s what Mike Portnoy stated on the caption of his recent post:

“With a few exceptions in the past, I generally try to avoid posting about politics as it usually sparks heated debates and can sometimes even result in losing some fans…but I’ve recently decided to no longer silence my disdain for Trump as I find him a truly despicable human being and a danger to our country’s reputation and democracy (see my Gimme Some Truth video…)

So with that, I feel it’s OK for me to share my support for Joe Biden and am very excited by his pick for VP running mate with Kamala Harris! 👏 I personally was hoping it would be her as I think she really strengthens the bill and will help also strengthen some of Biden’s weaknesses that some people have concerns over…

This is probably the most important election in US history, so get out and Vote! #BidenHarris2020 #ByeDon #PleaseMakeAmericaGreatAgain
(and please keep the discussions and comments here civil!🙏)”
