Former Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello unloaded on former President Barack Obama and his administration in a new tweet.
A Twitter account named Black and Proud tweeted, “We miss President Obama. We miss his class. We miss the dignity he brought to the White House.”
Morello responded, “I enjoy your twitter feed and welcome both class and dignity, however must say I don’t miss Obama’s war crimes and I mourn the civilian dead in the Mid East under his rule.”
Morello also criticized Obama in a 2012 Rolling Stone interview, admitting to ‘drinking the kool aid’ for the 44th President during the 2008 election.
“I drank a little bit of the Kool-Aid initially,” Morello said. “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.”
He told TMZ in 2013, “Today I got an email, I’ve been getting constant emails, from Obama’s campaign or whatever asking me for money, after they’ve been spying on me, and their drones have been killing civilians. So I decided I’m going to take whatever amount of money I might have donated, which would have been not that much, but I’m going to donate it to whatever airplane flight is going to get [Edward] Snowden to Ecuador.”
He added in the 2013 TMZ interview, “The last administration was horrible, this one turned out to be horrible too.”
