NINE INCH NAILS Trent Reznor on Donald Trump: "A Complete Fucking Moron"

Tell us how you really feel, Trent.

To say the rock and metal world are not the biggest fans of U.S. President Donald Trump would be an understatement. Among the names that have spoken up against Trump are  Kerry KingCorey TaylorWes BorlandRandy Blythe, Body Count's Ice-T, Metallica's Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich (but not James Hetfield), Axl Rose and Tool's Maynard James Kennan.

You can now add Trent Reznor to that list. The Nine Inch Nails frontman was profiled in a new Village Voice piece and offered this anecdote:

“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.’

How nice of Reznor not to curse in front of his kids. Better keep them away from NIN's music for now.
