System of A Down has always been seen as a rebellious band, but perhaps that whole time drummer John Dolmayan didn't quite agree with all the politics? Or perhaps as he aged, his politics changed? He had some wild conspiracies about coronavirus, he and frontman Serj Tankian had differing views on Bernie Sanders, and now it's safe to say he and Serj have different views about Donald Trump.
After Tankian penned a scathing post about the U.S. President, Dolmayan took a different approach, praising all Trump has done for minorities.
Dolmayan shared a quote from Trump where Trump stated his admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln. Dolmayan added his own caption:
"Let’s not let the narrative that’s being spun make us forget the truth of this statement. The most attacked president in history yet the greatest friend to minorities! Don’t believe it ? Look at the stats . Don’t like it , doesn’t change the truth of it."
Oddly, neither Trump nor Dolmayan offered any evidence as to what exactly Trump did for these communities.
This is in heavy contrast to what vocalist Serj Tankian wrote a few days ago. Earlier this week, Tankian wrote "Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens.
"A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person. But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you've realized they are not your people as you are not really our President.
"These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come.
"You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK?
"The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US and elsewhere in the world. Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come @realdonaldtrump"
