Aside: Trump di mata Billy Joe Armstrong

“You can’t trust politicians. It doesn’t matter who makes a political speech. It’s all lies – and it applies to any rock star who wants to make a political speech as well.” kata Bob Geldof The Boomtown Rats.

Di NME, majalah musik Inggris, Billy Joe Armstrong, front man Greenday menyamakan Trump dengan Hitler.

“I’m trying to figure out the whole damn [Trump] thing myself. I’m just confused. I have anxiety about the whole thing. You wake up every morning and think, what now? What stupid thing’s going to be said? What new email hack are you going to read about? What racist comment? A lot of my songs come from… not really anger, but anxiety. And feeling lost in the whole game.”

“[Trump] has no compassion. He has no empathy for anything except power. That’s all he wants, and he’ll step on anybody to get it. And the thought of a guy like that having his finger on the nuclear button is pretty fucking scary.”

“[He’s like] fucking Hitler man. The comparison is that he’s using scare tactics against minorities – Muslims and Mexicans and African-Americans. There could be race wars.”
