Dude, I get the frustration, I do, but this isn’t the sort of thing you should be saying about a sitting president (or anybody, really), so there may be some Secret Service inquiries in your future.
And to be honest, why would a publication or interviewer from any outlet ask a pop star such a ludicrous question?
The question, proposed by Der Spiegel, and as asked of British singer, Morrissey, was this:
“If there was a button here and if you pressed on it, Trump would die dead [sic]– would you push it or not?”
Dumb, pointless question.
Mr. Morrissey’s answer was pretty much atrocious.
“I would, for the safety of humanity,” Morrissey said. “It has nothing to do with my personal opinion of his face or his family, but in the interest of humanity I would push.”
Now, I have problems with Trump. I think he’s the biggest mistake the American voters have ever made, following the previous biggest mistake American voters ever made by electing Obama – twice, no less!
What was asked and how Morrissey responded, however, is absolute filth. The worst part about it is the guy is approaching it as some sort of moral obligation.
I think he’s really confused.
He wasn’t completely wrong, however. He knows who holds a hefty chunk of blame for this dilemma Trump presents.
“Whether they criticize him or laugh at him, he does not care, he just wants to see his picture and his name,” he said.
“The American media have shot themselves in the leg.”
The media gave Trump wall-to-wall coverage during the primaries, catering to all of his temper tantrums and treating him as if he was already king.
Yeah, if they’ve got a problem with him now, they need look no further than the mirror to find the source of their woes.
Morrissey pressed on, and I think it’s fair to say he’s thoroughly disgusted with the idea of a President Trump.
“He grabs after everything like a little child,” he said.
“He is not a leader. He is a vermin.”
Yes. He’s very much like a poorly behaved, spoiled and ignorant child.
No, he’s not a leader, at least, not a world leader.
As for his being vermin – no. He’s many things. He is ignorant. He is petulant. He may even be a total creep. He is, however, not vermin. He’s a deeply flawed man, who was allowed into the position he’s in because of the moral rot, misguided anger, and frustration that has overrun this nation.
Stick to music, guy. Some of your opinions make you sound as unhinged as the man you feel so free to slam in this interview.
