Gene Simmons of KISS addresses the Pentagon. Wait–what?

In a normal American presidential administration, you’d never see anything like this. But these aren’t normal times.

Trump’s people don’t like the media. It’s been more than three months since White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held an official press briefing. It’s even weirder over at the Pentagon where there hasn’t been a press briefing in over 11 months.

That changed–sort of–yesterday–when Gene Simmons, the demon bass player of KISS, took to the Pentagon podium to talk to the media.

To do what? Talk about plans for the KISS Army? Almost.

Simmons was there to talk to Department of Defense personnel about a Pentagon public engagement plan regarding the activities of the military.
