Chad Smith has tweeted a bizarre photo that will appear on his drum kit for tonight’s Red Hot Chili Peppers fundraiser show for Democrat socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. In the photo, Bernie Sanders looks like David Bowie on the Aladdin Sane cover, with Smith calling it ‘Berninsane.’ Bowie passed away last month.

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea ripped Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump in a new Rolling Stone interview. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are performing for Democrat socialist Bernie Sanders tonight in Los Angeles.
“I can’t take Donald Trump or anything he says seriously,” he says. “I just think that he’s a silly reality-show bozo and blustering guy who likes getting attention. I don’t think he wants to be president, and I don’t think he has a chance to be the president. He’s just some egotistical, silly person whose main concern in life is getting a blowjob. He wants to be on TV and he wants everyone to thinks he’s important.”
For Flea, Trump’s controversial statements on immigration and terrorism are more “silly theatre” than bold provocations. “I don’t think he even believes what he says,” Flea says. “He’s just a product of, if you yell loud enough and bluster around enough, people are going to pay attention to you. He works the media and they love it. I’m hesitant to even discuss it because I just find it all to be really trivial.
He later added, “He’s a real-estate bozo who was born rich and has parlayed it from being a money-scammer guy.”
