Axl Rose talks about his “disdain” for Trump administration, fights with Surgeon General
May found Axl Rose beefing with US Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin on social media, and over the weekend Axl took to Twitter yet again, this time to exchange words with US Surgeon General Jerome Adams. "Jerome Adams is a: A coward, b: A POS, c: Both," Axl wrote. "Resign. U don’t deserve the job or title. America deserves better."
Axl's message to Adams came not long after the Surgeon General appeared on The Today Show on Friday (7/3), where instead of advising people to avoid large gatherings over the holiday weekend to minimize coronavirus spread, he said, "It’s not a yes or no. Every single person has to make up their own mind. There are going to be people going to beaches, going to barbecues, going to different environments. And they have to look at their individual risk. As you mentioned, CDC says larger gatherings are a higher risk. You have to take that into account again with whether or not you’re at risk, whether or not you live with someone who is vulnerable." He did, at least, advise people going out to wear masks, although he opposes a nationwide mandate that would require their usage.
In response to Axl's tweet, Adams wrote, "Hey Axl - appreciate your passion (and your music). How about helping me save some lives by sharing the message about staying safe, and using face coverings?!"
"Awesome! n’ thanks!," Axl replied. "U wanna start by telling peeps to avoid large gatherings? Or u want me to? Shame we didn’t get that out there 4 this wkend like on TV."
On Saturday, Axl wrote some more about his "disdain 4 r current administration":
My disdain 4 r current administration n’ what I perceive as it’s threat to r democracy is no secret. I’m not all that active w/social media n’ tho I more than appreciate anyone who takes an interest in something I might post I don’t really have an interest in how many followers or retweets etc. I have as my political or social issue posts rn’t about me. They’re about the issues.
In general my posts in regard to current events, politics or social issues r usually coming from a sense of outrage, obligation n’ responsibility to say something at times when I feel not to is being complicit (as opposed to a desire for attention or self promotion.) I’m nobody, just a citizen that like everyone else has my own opinions n’ believes in my heart that ultimately I want what’s best for not just r country but for humanity, wildlife n’ r environment n’ other’s as opposed to right, left or any other wing fascism r at least in this country free to disagree.
So 4 me when I feel someone in this administration for example or perhaps media, in entertainment or the public says or does something that in my view supports or caters to the irresponsibility of this administration or various issues w/government or law enforcement I may voice an opinion. Perhaps a strong or perhaps considered by some a lewd or immature response or opinion. It happens.
