Donald Trump to Ruin Def Leppard at Upcoming Iowa State Fair
Well, this gives a whole new meaning to the term “hair metal”: according to CNN, “Donald Trump is set to introduce 80s hair metal band Def Leppard at the Iowa State Fair on August 15.” The reason?
“The Iowa State Fair is the first-in-the-nation caucus state’s signature summer event, and a must-attend for presidential candidates. Candidates from both sides of the aisle flock to the fair, speaking at the Des Moines Register’s Soapbox, flipping pork chops at the National Pork Producers Council’s tent, eating fried food on a stick, or taking a close-up look at the Butter Cow (a life-sized cow carved out of butter).
“Iowans are frequently given up-close access to candidates, and the State Fair boasts attendance of over one million.”
Trump, in case you’ve been living under a rock, is running for president. Classy dude that he is, he’s already made waves by making racist comments about Mexicans and claiming that John McCain isn’t a war hero because he was captured. So now he’ll get on stage on introduce a British band whose biggest hit is an ode to sitophilia, and, somehow, this will further demonstrate his potential value as the leader of the United States. Or something.
The thing about this which is actually kind of upsetting is the idea that Def Leppard would agree to in any way be associated with Trump. Maybe they have no control over the situation whatsoever (although I find that hard to believe), but even then, Def Lep should probably release a statement distancing themselves from Trump ASAP. ‘Cause if they don’t, we have to assume they support Trump, and that would suck. Like, I don’t wanna think about the human equivalent of a snail trail every time I hear “Rock of Ages” for the rest of my life, y’know?
