Trent Reznor rips Trump, calls him a ‘vulgar, grotesque dope’


Trent Reznor minced no words sharing his opinion of President Donald Trump in a recent Village Voice interview.

“It’s tough, because the president of the United States is a complete fucking moron,” lamented the Nine Inch Nails frontman, whose band released a new EP, Add Violence, last week.  “That’s what gets me the most—that he’s this vulgar, grotesque dope, everything I hate in people.”

Reznor said he chose his words more carefully when his 6-year-old son caught him binging on cable news and asked his dad, “Donald Trump is a bad guy, isn’t he?”

“Look, I don’t think he’s a good guy. Some people do,” the 52-year-old rocker responded. “I don’t think he believes in science and I don’t think he believes people should be treated decently and I don’t think he tells the truth. That’s why I don’t like him.”

Maybe Trump will take credit for Reznor’s publicity spike, just like he did with Steven Tyler.
