Corey Taylor sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his new book America 51: A Probe into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World”. In it, he says President Donald Trump doesn’t have a chapter dedicated to him necessarily, but he is “peppered” throughout the entire book. Mainly because Taylor has some “fucking brutal” words for the sitting president.
It’s clear that Taylor is not a fan of Mr. Trump. At all. He tells Rolling Stone:
“It is embarrassing that he is the ‘leader of the free world,'” he continues. “I will never give him the qualification for that shit. He can’t go away fast enough. And I think people are really starting to see that. His approval rating is at 39 percent in a lot of places. Was there a reason you wiped your ass with your fucking vote, you bunch of dickheads? Good for you.”
“He’s peppered in all the time because I go off on fucking tangents,” Taylor says. “A lot of it has to do with the culture divide. We’re on so many different pages socially, we’ve given to extremes. Why can’t we come to the center, where most of us are, and be able to talk? Instead, we put our backs against the wall and scream at each other. The book is me standing in the middle going, ‘You’re all fucked. If you could get a little closer to each other, you’d not only see that you could talk instead of yell, you’d have more in common than you realize. Until that moment happens, it’s gonna be a fucking nightmare.'”
He also goes on to tell Billboard that being outspoken politically, he’s seen pushback from some of his fans. “I’ve had a little pushback, but only from people who masturbate to Lee Greenwood songs.”
