The rocker got candid about the Republican presidential nominee in a new interview with Kerrang! magazine.
Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has never been one to shy away from sharing his political views ― the band did release an entire album called “American Idiot” which referenced the George W. Bush administration multiple times ― and these days, he’s no different.
In a new interview with Kerrang! magazine, Armstrong went in on Trump and his band of loyal supporters, saying, “The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are.”
“I actually feel bad for them,” he added, “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.”
The rocker then went in for the kill.
“[Trump] 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!” he said, adding, “I don’t even know how else to explain it. I wish I were over-exaggerating. And sometimes maybe I do over-exaggerate with Bush. But with Trump, I just can’t wait ‘til he’s gone.”
