Henry Rollins has had it with the state of America’s governing system, and he is finally speaking out about what he thinks of Donald Trump.
In an interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, Rollins said this:
“Trump, one day he held up his cellphone and said, ‘Here’s Lindsey Graham’s number!’ I could not not laugh. That was FUNNY. He would be a disastrous president, but at the same time I don’t think he wants to be president. I think he’s a bored rich guy just being crass.”
Rollins says that people are drawn to Donald Trump for a reason:
“This country, our heels are dug in in the past, we’re prehistoric. And that’s where Trump is getting off. There are people who do think the president is coming for their guns. They are afraid of Muslims. They are afraid of Latinos. ‘They’re taking our jobs!’ Dude, you don’t want to sell oranges under the 101 … Donald Trump says those are the bad ones. Really? I think they’re the salt of the Earth. You should shut up.”
Calling Hillary Clinton “astonishingly mediocre,” Rollins expressed his support of Bernie Sanders:
“Obviously you can’t sell him to the Midwest or the South. But I just think he’s the best guy running. His concepts are way too radical for America in terms of health care and all that, but I don’t think any of his ideas are threatening. I don’t think any of them would be bad. I don’t think he wants the next war.”
Henry Rollins knows what up.
According to The Daily Beast:
“The 54-year-old has spent three and a half decades filtering his perspective on the human experience through a varied career as a musician, spoken word artist, radio host, TV host, globetrotter, activist, columnist, and actor. He’s been “peopled” so much, as he puts it, that fans tend to see him as the confessor of their sins.”
