Film and music icons have been persistent in their anti-Trump attacks.
It first began with Meryl Streep’s anti-Trump speech at the Golden Globe’s when she received her lifetime achievement award.
But every once in a while, someone will defend President Trump – and a legendary musician has done just that.
“Rock icon Sammy “The Red Rocker” Hagar says the amount of “crazy” political opposition to President Donald Trump has so far stopped him from being able to lead.
Asked in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, what grade would he give Trump, Hagar said: “I don’t think you can grade him yet, because the poor guy can’t get anything done.”
“The opposition has become so crazy that they’re not gonna even give him a chance. I’d like to see him have a chance.
He’s the president of the United States, and without getting any changes he ain’t helping us,” Hagar continued.
“So maybe he makes some changes that don’t work, and then maybe the next guy will come in and say, ‘That didn’t work, I’ll do it this way.’
Because I don’t think anybody knows what the f*ck they’re doing out there right now.”
A month before Americans voted Trump president, the former Van Halen frontman told Yahoo! Music that he liked the way Trump ‘busts people’s balls and says things that are politically incorrect.’
Hagar, who’s been an international rock star since the 1970s and founder of Cabo Wabo Tequila brand and restaurant chain, also said ‘musicians and artists should stay the fuck out of politics.’
Hagar is currently on performing on an extensive nationwide tour with fellow Van Halen alum Michael Anthony.”
Meanwhile, musicians like Bruce Springsteen and Roger Waters have been more than vocal in expressing their disdain towards President Trump.
Waters is currently on a nationwide tour where he dedicates a 10-minute song/segment towards bashing Trump with the stage lit up in letters that say “Trump is a pig”.
But some actors are refusing to associate themselves with the opposition.
Two of the stars from Transformers: The Last Knight – Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel – have recently acknowledged that their fans don’t care about political affiliation and they refuse to get involved in the rhetoric.
Superstar comedian Kevin Hart also reiterated the same thoughts.
In an interview with Variety published this week to promote his new book, the What Now star explains why avoiding politically-charged comedy keeps him from ‘alienating’ a portion of his audience.
‘When you jump into that political realm you’re alienating some of your audience,’ Hart said.
‘The world today, it’s really not a laughing matter. It’s serious,” he added.
‘I don’t want to draw attention to things I don’t have nice things to say about.’
Hart’s films, including 2016’s Central Intelligence and the Ride Along franchise, have grossed nearly $1.5 billon domestically. The 37-year-old actor reportedly commands $10 million per film.”
At least there are some level-headed celebrities left out there, but the other anti-Trump musicians and actors who keep perpetuating their Trump hatred onto fans need to start sticking to their day jobs.
