Motley Crue icon, Tommy Lee, has announced the drastic measures he will take if President Trump is re-elected in the upcoming elections.
But the reasons he has stated have shocked Americans on both sides of the political spectrum...
Clearly, this rock 'n' roller can't stand the idea of another 4 years of Trump's America.The drumming legend didn't beat around the bush when discussing the 2020 elections recently, and he made some strong claims as to what he'll do if Trump gets re-elected.
But his reasons behind such an outburst have left many shocked...
And, at such a crucial time in the run-up to the election...His public statement could influence many who are yet to decide who to vote for.
We are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated election...
via: GettyAnd it's been an explosive journey, to say the least.
Donald Trump is hoping to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...
via: GettyBut he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
Of course, the election couldn't have landed on a worse year...
via: GettyBut it has been powering on ahead, despite many major setbacks.
The first presidential debate was held on September 29th in Cleveland.
via: GettyEntering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls. Biden's lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump's campaign, with Biden's campaign donations improving significantly.
President Trump was obviously aware of this...
via: GettyAnd in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden's abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate.
But overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.
via: GettyBoth Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another and picking at each other's flaws.
The whole debate was certainly made personal...And it didn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
It all felt very disorganized...
This debate is unfortunately between a steamroller with no operator & a Roomba that got stuck in a corner— Aparna Nancherla (@Aparna Nancherla)1601428943.0
Trump's presidential campaign seems to be hitting rocks...And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...
via: GettyHe was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning to hear.
In the weeks following his discharge, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."
via: GettyBut, when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.
FYI, this wasn't just Biden's idea.
via: GettyThe Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.
The virtual debate that was scheduled to go ahead was officially canceled due to Trump's refusal.
via: GettyFor some reason, the proposition of a virtual debate infuriated the President and he boldly said he "wouldn't waste his time" on it.
So, as you can see, the whole thing has been nothing short of shambolic.And Tommy Lee clearly has a lot to say about it.
The Motley Crue drummer was recently quizzed on his thoughts surrounding the elections for the London magazine, The Big Issue...Where he demanded that people "stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the US."
He believes that President Trump embarrasses America as a nation.He explained: "I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: 'What the f*** are you guys doing over there?"
He then revealed his backup plan just in case Trump is re-elected."Dude, I swear to god if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the U.K. I’m out of here."
He then insisted he would return to his native country of Greece."I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to Greece, and get a house on one of the islands."
Many people are liking his idea...
