Dave Grohl thinks Donald Trump is “a massive jerk”

Donald Trump may have his supporters within the music industry, but Dave Grohl is not among them. While Kanye West, Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and others profess admiration for President Cheeto, Dave has a different opinion. This is from CQ.

Dave Grohl on the American Dream and President Trump

“The American Dream was still tangible, still desirable. Today, the American Dream is broken. I’ve probably travelled internationally more than our current president and the one thing I understand that he doesn’t is that the world isn’t as big as you think it is. It is all in your neighbourhood. India, Asia, Iceland aren’t other solar systems. I am ashamed of our president. I feel apologetic for it when I travel.

Listen, who cares what I think about guns or religion, but the thing about Trump that stings the most is this: he just seems like a massive jerk. Right? I know a lot of wonderful people who don’t share my politics and you can bet tomorrow night in the stadium not everyone will share the same opinion or hold the same views. But when I sing ‘My Hero’ they will all sing it with me. In the three hours that I am on stage, none of that matters.”

There’s much more to this interview here.
