In a brand new interview with Australia’s “Scars And Guitars” podcast, SACRED REICH frontman Phil Rind talked about the ongoing political battle in The United States.
On Trump, he said:
“I think he’s in over his head. I don’t think he’s intellectually curious. I don’t think he pays attention. He may have some broad ideas as far as just wanting to enrich himself and his friends. But I don’t think he’s really cut out for it or really knows what it’s like to work or to pay attention to people or to listen or to read or any of the skills someone would need to try to do that job efficiently.”
“I can’t even imagine wanting to do that job. Imagine you don’t sleep — there’s always something going on in some part of the world. And the amount of pressure and what it takes to get to that position.
“This is why I’m a big fan of Bernie Sanders [the democratic socialist candidate competing in the Democratic primaries].”
“All these other people are saying what they have to say — they’re beholden to their donors. It takes a great deal of money to run. So, I understand — these people give you money to run, [and] they’re expecting something in return. So the system is corrupt. And even if you want to try to change things, once you get… You know the phrase, ‘When you lay down with dogs, you get fleas.’ So when you’re put into this corrupt system, what choice do you have? So we need to just rethink how we run elections and what’s important.”
