I love when Randy Blythe gets political, because the man always gets it right. We've asked him his opinion on the confederate flag, and he had a fair answer, saying people should be able to wave it if they want, but if they do, they are likely not a friend of his. He was vehemently outspoken against George W. Bush during his term in office and all of his war crimes and now with the election season upon us, we finally get his thoughts on Donald Trump.
In a new interview with Auburn, Washington’s 99.9 KISW, the interviewer asked Blythe's opinion on Trump, and Blythe, as always, delivered with a true and hilarious answer:
Fuck that dude! ( Crowd cheers) All right, look. I’ve been in Lamb of God twenty years, right? I’ve had a job since I was 14. For ten of the twenty years when I was in Lamb of God, I was a roofer and a restaurant worker at the same time; I didn’t hatch out of a rock-star egg. Donald Trump does not know what the common man does. He has no clue what the average working person goes through in order to pay their bills. He does not give a fuck about you; he gives a fuck about protecting big business and the lobbies. You know what I mean? So fuck that guy, and fuck his hair. He has no need to be the president of the United States. Just ’cause you’re rich doesn’t mean you should be president of the United States.”
Let’s take away the campaign funding, right? Let’s take it all out. The Internet is free, okay? Why don’t you speak about real issues. Take away the money. You know what I mean? They don’t need a bazillion dollars to run a presidential campaign; I’m sorry, it’s just not true. Go to YouTube, you know?
Interviewer: I can’t believe that guy is #1 still. I just wanted to ask, since you’re an intellectual.
It’s hideous. Not just the presidency, but our Congress has been a disgrace. Bipartisan politics, fighting over party lines. Why don’t they care about the American people instead of whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican. You know what I mean? Let’s deal with some issues.
I can't say I disagree with him.
