KISS' Gene Simmons about Donald Trump: "He's the truest political animal I've ever seen onstage"


KISS' Gene Simmons was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone, you can read some excerpts below.


About Donald Trump, he said: "He's the truest political animal I've ever seen onstage. Trump has no speechwriters, no editing, no nothing. He's actually on tape going 'motherfucker.' You cannot turn away."

He added: "Trump has said some very vile, unkind things. But don't kid yourself. He speaks off the cuff, and what you see is what you get. And he'll double down. If you ask him about building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico he'll say, 'Fuck you, I'm going to make it 10 feet higher, just because you asked me.' He's not there to be your friend."

"The middle, the centrists, they can say, 'What do you think of this?' because everybody is sick and tired of being politically correct. Secretly, tens of millions, perhaps a hundred million people may actually have some positive feelings about a wall.

"Macedonia is building a wall between Greece and Macedonia," he continued. "There's a wall between Israel and a neighboring country. There was a Berlin Wall. There was the Great Wall of China. So whether they're good or bad for people, walls actually work. It's unkind, but in terms of pragmatics, it actually works ... The Pope has said the wall is unkind, but it's interesting that at the Vatican there's a wall. They don't want people on the outside coming into the Vatican."

Simmons added: "Trump is not a politician. He does not need your money, and he will speak his mind, God damn it, whether you like it or not. And he has no problem saying 'Fuck off.' I like that. Even if I disagree."
