Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has slammed President Trump’s administration as the “gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful.”
Rose made his tweets in response to a statement from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who was responding to questions from reporters pushing the false narrative that Trump doesn’t have the mental fitness to serve as President.
“It’s disgraceful and laughable,” Sanders told reporters about criticism aimed at the billionaire real estate mogul’s mental state. “If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen,” Sanders said, before praising Trump as an “incredibly strong” leader.
Rose had tweeted: “Along with several other condescending adjectives, the current [White House] has no room to call virtually anyone disgraceful. The [White House] is the current U.S. gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful.”
Guns N’ Roses’ “Not In This Lifetime” now ranks as the fourth-highest grossing tour of all time, based on Billboard’s Boxscore archives. The tour, which launched in April 2016, topped the $475 million mark in gross sales with the final show of the band’s 2017 touring schedule on November 29 in Los Angeles.
“Not In This Lifetime” has surpassed Roger Waters’s “The Wall Live” tour that earned $459 million from 2010 through 2013. U2 tops up the all-time list with $736 million from its “360°” stadium tour (2009-2011) followed by The Rolling Stones’ “A Bigger Bang” at $558 million (2005-2007). Coldplay is third with its recently completed “A Head Full Of Dreams” trek that grossed $523 million (2016-2017).
