Axl Rose Jabs At Incompetent Trump

One day after Billie Joe Armstrong had some strong words to say about Donald Trump (and even stronger words for a Trump supporter), Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC rocker Axl Rose has jumped into the ring.

Rose was responding to Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’ defense of Trump after a new book called him unfit to serve. “It’s disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen.”

Rose, who hasn’t posted anything on Twitter since the November 9 death of Paul Buckmaster, was moved to return to the service to express his opinion:

Along with several other condescending adjectives the current WH has no room to call virtually anyone disgraceful.

The WH is the current US gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful.

This isn’t the first time that Rose has gotten political on Twitter.

From November 18, 2016:

Good people don’t listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions.

From November 19, 2016:

“Hamilton Cast harassed Pence.” Do u ever stop whining?An apology?Seriously?!U won,this is the job,get on with it or get out of the kitchen.

From March 27, 2017:

“Such policies cannot continue. They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the street.” – A.G. Jeff Sessions

As opposed to putting them in the White House n’ as Attorney General.
