Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor Says U.S. President Donald Trump Is “A Complete F*cking Moron”
Nine Inch Nails’ own Trent Reznor is in the spotlight again, only this time for calling U.S president Donald Trump “a complete f*cking moron.” Reznor’s words came directly from a new Village Voice written interview based on Trent Reznor.
During the interview, Reznor mentioned that one of his children recently approached him and asked him ‘Donald Trump is a bad guy, isn’t he?’ to which he replied “Look, I don’t think he’s a good guy. Some people do. I don’t think he believes in science and I don’t think he believes people should be treated decently and I don’t think he tells the truth. That’s why I don’t like him.”
The full statement read:
“Then there’s the Trump administration and the current political tenor of the country. ‘Clearly I find it…disheartening,’ Reznor says. But as a kid from the Rust Belt, he feels a deep connection to that part of the country, and resents the coastal liberal bubble that dismisses the realities of life back in his hometown. ‘When you’re not in an urban environment, you often feel left out of the conversation, and I get that. I grew up in that.’ For that reason, Reznor says, he has taken extra care when talking to his kids about Trump. ‘Donald Trump is a bad guy, isn’t he?’ Reznor recalls his six-year-old asking recently, after busting Dad indulging in what Reznor admits is a full-blown cable news addiction. Reznor responded carefully. ‘Look, I don’t think he’s a good guy. Some people do,’ he told his son. ‘I don’t think he believes in science and I don’t think he believes people should be treated decently and I don’t think he tells the truth. That’s why I don’t like him.’
“In more adult company, however, Reznor doesn’t mince words. ‘It’s tough, because the president of the United States is a complete fucking moron,’ he seethes. ‘That’s what gets me the most — that he’s this vulgar, grotesque dope, everything I hate in people.” [via MetalSucks]
