    Green Day’s Billie Joe is, unsurprisingly, not a fan of Donald Trump. He speaks with Kerrang in their upcoming issue:


    “The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their anger. He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s fucking Hitler, man!”

    pretty sure one of those outcomes is a bit scarier than the other

    close cover, strike gently

    If you made a list of all of the people who are "literally Hitler", Adolf Hitler wouldn't even be in the Top 10 any more.

    Love Billie Joe's take on politics. Just saw the American Idiot musical and it just brings that album and all the undertones to life in such a great way. Can't wait for this new record.

    He's got a valid point. I liked Donald Trump in Home Alone 2 but cannot wait until Hillary rigs the election and I can stop hearing about him.

    Edit: not implying he'd win, don't want him to. But Hilary is a crooked goon.
