In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone on Monday, Green Day, a rock band, said that they shout “Fuck you, Donald Trump,” at every stop on their tour. The band thinks that they are forming some sort of resistance or movement by their unjustified and disrespectful actions, but they are definitely not qualified to create political movements.
Continuing their tirade of insults, they went on to call former President George W. Bush a ‘war criminal‘ and President Trump a ‘freak show.’ They justified their stance because of, wait til you hear this… Harry Potter. Apparently, the new generation is the “Harry Potter Generation” and they see the world as good or evil, and in their calculations, Donald Trump is evil.
“I feel like the government is trying to create a culture war between us in a lot of ways. They’re trying to get between your average citizens based on red and blue,” Armstrong added. “I want people to feel unity when they come to a show. At the same time, I’m not going to puss out on saying what I feel about him and his administration.”
Armstrong and Green Day have made a habit of bashing President Trump.
In an interview with Kerrang! magazine last August, Armstrong compared Trump to Adolf Hitler. In a November interview with NME, the rocker blamed the rise of Trump on “uneducated white working-class people.”
Later that month during a performance at the American Music Awards, the rock trio chanted “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!” from the stage.
In his new interview with Rolling Stone, Armstrong said he doesn’t fear for his children’s future under Trump and appeared to compare the president to the Harry Potter villain Voldemort.
