Multimillionaire celebrity liberals have made a point of “speaking out” against Donald Trump, who represents a clear threat to the pampered lifestyles they have led for far too long. Hollywood types like Meryl Streep, who are completely isolated from the lives of the regular Americans who watch their movies, never fail to try to attack and undermine Trump whenever they get a microphone near them.
Now an aging rock star has just done the unthinkable and is actually risking lost whatever is left of his fan base by actually telling all Trump supporters not to go to any of his concerts, because they will not be welcome.
Todd Rundgren became famous in the 1970’s for his radio friendly rock hits like “Hello, It’s Me” and clearly doesn’t realize just how irrelevant he has become. Instead of begging anyone actually still willing to pay money to see him to come to his concerts, he just gave half of America the brush-off.
Rundgren is currently promoting his new album White Knight, on which he collaborated with Trent Reznor and Joe Walsh, and he was interviewed by Variety magazine. When he was asked if President Donald Trump and his voters anger him, he answered, “No. If I had the power, I’d say: If you’re a Trump supporter, don’t come to my show, because you won’t have a good time. And also, I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself.”
On his new album, Todd and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan recorded a song about President Trump titled “Man in the Tin Foil Hat.” For part of the song’s lyrics, Rundgren sings, “He’s coming down the escalator with a girl from east of here because the man in the tin foil hat is leading like a teenage girl. He put’s the ‘pluto’ in plutocrat, he hasn’t got time for losers, unless they do what he demands.” Are you sick of irrelevant celebrities trying to make sick smears against Trump?
