PEARL JAM bassist was recently Interviews and asked about the current state of United States and president Trump. He said:
“Oh, man, where do I start? Is this a bad dream? It does seem like a bad dream. I think when he first started talking about running for president, like, six or seven years ago, I remember thinking, like, ‘What a joke.’ And I’m not sure what he did. But, like, half the positions in the cabinet aren’t filled, so I don’t know who’s driving the car right now.”
Ament also talked about Kanye West recently coming out in support of Trump.
Asked if Kanye‘s comments affect his enjoyment of the rapper’s music, Ament said:
“I have a hard time separating the art from the artist. There’s certain artists where I don’t read their interviews because it really affects me enjoying their music. I wish I hadn’t opened that text that had the article about dragon energy and Donald Trump. It’s unfortunate.”
