MASTODON Drummer Brann Dailor Calls TRUMP "Just The Worst Person"

Mastodon seem to have a united opinion of the U.S. President.

Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor slammed US President Donald Trump in a recent interview, saying "Our fucking president is just the worst person."

Dailor spoke to the UK's Rock Sound on the topic of how musicians are dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak. Dailor is not a fan of the President's response.

"Our fucking president is just the worst person," Dailor said. "I remember being a kid and seeing Donald Trump on TV, on Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous, being eight years old and going, 'That guy sucks. That guy's a dick. He doesn't care about anybody but himself. He's just a rich, spoiled brat.' And I knew that as a kid, you know what I mean? How could [anyone] think that guy cares about anybody but himself?"

Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher shares his drummer's views on Trump's response to the pandemic. Speaking on a recent edition of the "Rock & Roll Beer Guy" podcast. When asked about why seemingly smart people have fallen for lies about the virus, Kelliher responds:

"It all stems from these idiot Trump supporters who believe everything that this orange shitstain says. He's so wobbly, it's ridiculous that anyone would still, to this day, take him seriously and believe that he has your best interests in his agenda. He does not, and it's obvious.

"What it is, is he wants to blame everything on [former President Barack] Obama… 'Cause he's a total racist. So just out of spite, he wants to undo everything that Obama's done. And in doing so, he's undone the American population. People are picking sides. Now it doesn't matter what your beliefs are — you're either Democrat or Republican. You can't be bipartisan; you're just one or the other to the death. It doesn't matter what Donald Trump says — you just believe everything blindly.

"That's why when if someone suggests that, 'It's a political thing,' or, 'It's a ploy by the Democrats to make me look bad,' it's, like, 'No. You're looking bad on your own, buddy. You are completely capable of looking bad on your own.' So that's where it's all stemming from. And now people are, 'Oh, this is a hoax. We're gonna do what we wanna do,' and 'freedom' and all this bullshit.

"If everyone just stayed in their house for, like, three weeks, then this shit would be over with and we could about our lives," he continued. "But they won't, because they wanna defy what they think are the Democrats, and for political motivations, to defy anybody who has any brains behind them, really, and science. They wanna just go outside and go back to work. And you can't do that. We're never gonna get back to work with this attitude."

Kelliher was also not a fan of the one-time $1,2000 stimulus check that the government gave to qualifying adults, saying it's nowhere near enough.

"Whose idea was it to give out $1200 to everybody?" he said. "What the fuck is that gonna do? That's peanuts. That's ridiculous… And that's like a one-time thing. And the audacity of that prick to hold that money until he could have each [check] stamped with Donald Trump's name. What a fucking scumbag. I just can't believe [it]. Egotistical maniac." He added "It's unfathomable that we live in a country in 2020 and this fucker is still in charge. He's an idiot."

Kelliher added he's "losing faith in the American people," adding "I'm, like, 'Man, what is wrong with our country? Why is everybody so into this guy?' He's a fucking failed reality-show host. I hated him then."

Kelliher says he loves his country, but is let down by the people in it. "America is dumb — people are dumbed the fuck down so hard, especially compared to other countries. I travel all over the world and I just see how much better it is. Believe me, I love my country, I love it here — it's just the people I can do without. [Laughs] Not everybody," he clarified. "The people I know and I associate with, we're all kind of on the same page. I'm sure me speaking like this, someone will be, like, 'America, love it or leave it.' No — you fucking leave it, man. You're the fucking idiot," he continued.

"The whole 'snowflake' argument about, 'Well, let's reverse abortion.' It's, like, no, abortion is legal, dude, in America. You're the one who's wrong if you're trying to reverse it. You're the fucking snowflake. You can't handle it. Get the fuck out. You don't want abortion? Then don't fucking have one — period. Stay the fuck out of my business."

Yesterday, a quote surfaced from Ozzy Osbourne's show, about the Prince of Darkness' opinion of the pandemic saying "Whether you like the government or whether you don’t, whatever, Dr. Fauci, all these virologist people, they [tell] us what we should do: wear a mask, wash hands, social distance…” He then joked that the one person not to listen to is Trump. I don’t go anywhere. If the president says something, I do the opposite. ’Cause he changes his mind every hour. I mean, literally. I’m going, ‘What?’”
