Henry Rollins Unsurprisingly Thrilled About Trump Presidency
Henry Rollins has written an editorial for Australian edition of Rolling Stone in which he shares his feelings regarding this week’s election of Donald Trump. Although I’m sure this will shock you, he’s not happy about President Donnie T.:
“As a friend and fan of Australia, I warn you to stay away from the USA for quite some time. It is not the place it claims to be. It is good advice to heed the wise words of Maya Angelou: ‘When people show you who they are, believe them.’ The USA has chosen Donald Trump. This is who we are. You really don’t want a piece of this. I don’t.
“Note to Prime Minister Turnbull: America is no longer the ally you may have once thought it was. The man soon to be in charge has no clue as to what the job he has just been elected to entails. Do not feed your military into whatever conflict this man initiates.
“What happened to America can happen to any country. It is of the utmost importance to not only vote whenever possible, but to inform yourself as best you can and hold any and all elected officials to the highest possible scrutiny.
“America just tied a rock around its neck and threw itself into a river. Do not follow.”
Rollins also refers to Trump’s VP, Mike Pence, as “an extraordinary dipshit,” which I think is understating it a little. He implored Congress to deny federal funding for HIV and AIDS treatments and instead give money to “institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.” In other words, he backed so-called “conversion therapy.” He’s a real winner, that one.
