Dave Grohl went for Trump, saying he feels shame when he travels abroad

Dave says the American Dream is broken.

LOOK, IT’S NO secret that a great many Americans are appalled by POTUS Donald Trump and the policies he has implemented his election in November 2016.


And while Kanye West might be flat out supporting the former reality TV star, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters is busy calling him ‘a’ massive jerk’.

Sounds fair enough.

Speaking to British GQ, the Foo Fighters frontman said he carries a sense of shame when he travels internationally on account of the behaviour of his country’s president.

Today, the American Dream is broken. I’ve probably travelled internationally more than our current president and the one thing I understand that he doesn’t is that the world isn’t as big as you think it is.

And he doesn’t stop there.

It is all in your neighbourhood. India, Asia, Iceland aren’t other solar systems. I am ashamed of our president. I feel apologetic for it when I travel.

The 49-year-old stressed that even if his political ideology aligned with Trump’s, he cannot relate to him as a person.

Listen, who cares what I think about guns or religion, but the thing about Trump that stings the most is this: he just seems like a massive jerk. Right?

In the past, the performer expressed serious concerns over the President’s attitude to women’s rights, and the impact that will ultimately have on his own children.

I’m looking at a candidate that has blatant disregard for the future environmentally, when it comes to women’s rights, diplomatically…I have three daughters that are going to survive me for decades – how are they going to get on unless there’s some positive and progressive change.
