Many people are against President Trump. However, regardless of feelings towards his policies, our President should always be treated with respect. After all, conservatives who disagreed with President Obama still showed him respect. Recently, British singer and songwriter Steven Patrick Morrissey shared his views on our current U.S. President.
Steven Patrick Morrissey believes that the media helps President Trump
The Washington Times reported on Morrissey’s interview with the German newspaper, Der Spiegel. Morrissey first commented on the amount of attention President Trump keeps receiving. According to Morrissey, the media helps President Trump. First claiming that he would not win the election, the media now continues to cover Trump’s every move. As a result, President Trump is always getting publicity. “Whether they criticize him or laugh at him, he does not care, he just wants to see his picture and his name,” Morrissey said.
Morrissey believes that since taking office at the beginning of this year, President Trump “has exhausted the world” and grabs at everything like a young child. According to him, President Trump is not our leader but vermin. He also admitted that he never expected Trump to become president and was shocked when he won the election.
Morrissey supports killing President Trump
During the interview, Der Spiegel directly asked if Morrissey would kill the president if given the chance. They asked him: If there was a button able to kill President Trump with a single push, would he push the button? “I would, for the safety of humanity. It has nothing to do with my personal opinion of his face or his family, but in the interest of humanity I would push,” the singer responded.
According to IMDB, the 58-year-old British artist has not always been interested in American politics and it has only been recently that he has become involved. Born in 1959 in Davyhulme, Manchester, England, he became involved with poetry at an early age. In 1982, he began his career as a musician and eventually went on to star as the lead guitarist for the British alternative rock band, The Smiths. Between 1983 to 1987, the band released six studio albums and several catchy three-minute singles.
