Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello took shots at President Obama and Paul Ryan in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
On Vice Presidential candiate Paul Ryan: “[Rage] is a band that casts the nets really wide, and that’s part of the strength of the band. People are drawn to it by the music, the aggression, the rockingness of it, and then they’re exposed to different ideas. Paul Ryan was a jackass before he listened to it, came out a jackass at the end, so he missed a lot of it.”
On President Barack Obama: “I drank a little bit of the kool-aid initially,” he sighed, referring of the cult of personality around the candidate four years ago. “It looked different than any other president, sounded different than any other president, and then he acted the same as all the other presidents. If you have war crimes on your record, and you still continue to suck at the corporate teat like he does — my hopes were higher.”
