Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Calls Donald Trump ‘Infuriated Orange Bowl of Sherbet”
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has not kept quiet when asked what his thoughts are on Donald Trump’s presidency. Leading up to the election, Blythe claimed he would be leaving America until Trump was out of office, and straight up saying “f-k that guy, and f-k his hair.”
In a new interview with Yahoo Music, Blythe was asked about his opinion on the current cultural climate in America, and what the election process was like for him. “Reality has become entirely subjective,” he says. “That’s why it doesn’t matter what I think. I will say this. Me not voting for Trump and voting for his Democratic opponent was strictly a choice of the lesser of two evils. This is one of the worst, if not the worst, most bizarre, brutal electoral seasons I’ve ever seen. And I think it’s been the craziest in the lifetimes of many people who are way older than me as well, you know? There were dick jokes in the primaries. They weren’t metaphorically comparing penis size. They were actually doing it. This is what politics is right now. Regarding our Tweeter In Chief, people don’t care about the veracity of his statements. But I think really it’s a matter of kind of waiting for him to be impeached.”
Asked whether or not he thinks Trump is an actual danger, he said, “Of course he’s dangerous. Any person who is the President of the United States is dangerous. You have the codes to the nukes; that makes you a danger. And if you’re the President of the United States, I don’t care who you are, you’ve got to be a little off, because no sane person would want that job. I don’t even know what to say, really, other than people need to learn to communicate with each other again on both sides of the political spectrum. We can’t be a bipartisan country to the degree of severity that America has become. It just can’t be that way, because nothing is going to get done.”
On whether or not Blythe found any humor in the current situation, he said, “It would be hilarious to me if it wasn’t also horrifying at the same time. You know, we have this infuriated orange bowl of sherbet in the Oval Office. If you’re going to be a politician, at least be slick about it. But I don’t know. Maybe he’s brilliant. The way he got elected with this blitzkrieg of napalm across the misanthropic synapses of middle America is kind of genius. We’re going to make America great again? Whatever. It means nothing. I never though America was bad in the first place. But he instilled a massive amount of fear and then said, ‘I am the Messiah.’ So, you know, when America doesn’t become great again, what’s gonna happen?”
In our recent interview with Blythe, he commented on the seeming impossibility of being able to enact any change as a metal singer on stage. Randy Blythe is currently on tour with Lamb of God, supporting Slayer along with Behemoth. Click here for tour dates.
