Anthrax's Scott Ian says current Republican presidential candidates make George W. Bush look like Albert Einstein


Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian was recently interviewed by Radio.com, you can read some excerpts below.


About 2016 presidential election, he said: "I don't have a candidate. I don't subscribe to any political party. I think they're all full of crap. I think all politics is bullshit. I don't subscribe to any of it. As a complete outsider, this is the worst, craziest circus I've ever seen in my life, and I thought it was bad last time."

He continued: "It's weird; I just had this conversation with someone the other day. People thought George W. Bush was… Whatever you wanna say about the guy… People thought, oh, maybe he wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed or this or that. The guy looks like Albert Einstein compared to what's happening now. It's pretty crazy that one of those idiots has the opportunity to run for president. Is that really the best the Republican party can do?"

Ian added: "I'm not anti-Republican. I'm not pro-Democrat. I'm anti all of it. They're all idiots — all of them. Do any of these people look like a guy that should be running our country? Like, really? I don't mean look physically look… Like, these people have the capability…? It's, like, really? None of it seems very presidential to me at all. And maybe it's just because I'm older, and things were different. Certainly the Republican party was a lot different in the '70s and the '80s from when I first became aware of politics than it is now. It's not the same party anymore."
