Disturbed's David Draiman: "I hate all politicians equally"

 

Disturbed frontman David Draiman was recently interviewed by Loudwire, you can read some excerpts below.

About his thoughts on the 2016 U.S. presidential race, Draiman said: "I think it's all entertainment. I don't know how you can take any of these guys seriously. You know, they're all full of shit, every last one of 'em."

He continued: "Every politician, in order to be a politician, has to be adept at the art of one and one thing only, and that is lying. Okay? They're all in bed with all the same power brokers. It doesn't change from presidency to presidency. It's all about whatever agenda happens to be carried on a social basis by any one individual. They all get married to all the same corporations. They're all in the pocket of all the same people who wield the power to begin with. So if anybody has any delusions of grandeur that anything is really going to change from one president to the next, you're fooling yourself. Change has to come from within. Change has to come from a much larger portion of society, whether it's Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or that idiot with the fake hairpiece. It really doesn't make much of a difference to me."

Draiman added: "I hate all politicians equally. I think they're all full of shit. So I think that it is what it is. I just stand back and watch with my popcorn and enjoy the entertainment, 'cause I can't take it seriously."
