During the November 27th show in Irving, TX last night, Trent Reznor took some time out of the show to address the audience.
He asked the crowd if anybody voted for Ted Cruz. He then asked for the house lights on, and offered a fun anecdote. Here's the transcript:
“Who voted for Ted Cruz? See the lights aren’t on, I can’t see. Is there any way to turn the lights on? I’d like to see. Raise your hand, you guys, nothing to be ashamed of, just checking.
He might be here tonight, he was bugging to get on the guest list, and I told him to fuck off. We put him on a few years ago, he drank all the beer, and was just a pain in the ass to be around. So, I won’t, I won’t hold it against you.”
Naturally, there is video:
Reznor has been very outspoken about politics in the U.S. lately, so it shouldn't be surprising he made this statement.
