KISS’ Gene Simmons Predicts ‘Landslide’ Victory for Trump in 2020
Love or hate KISS’ Gene Simmons — he’s always blunt with his opinions. In a new interview following KISS’ announcement of their upcoming farewell tour, Simmons spoke about President Trump, predicting a “landslide” victory for the Republican incumbent if Trump continues on his current path.
The Demon of KISS has been cautious to criticize Trump’s administration, mainly due to the president being in office for a short time. In 2017, however, Simmons called Trump a "Tourette’s president,” but laughed it off, saying, "He says stupid things, and so do you, and so [do] I." In a 2017 Loudwire interview, Gene suggested Americans stop fighting amongst each other and save their power for the voting booth in 2020.
While chatting with the Toronto Sun, Simmons offered an updated take on Trump and the job he’s been doing. "A lot of people are unhappy, perhaps rightfully so," Gene begins. "But the Dow Jones Industrial (average is) 26,000 or so, job rates are down to 3.9 percent, the economy is booming like never before. The rest of it — politics. You like the guy, vote him back in. You don't like guy, just make sure nobody votes him back in. My assessment is very clear — unless he's impeached, if there are no more big wars, and if the Dow approaches 29,000, which it may, not only will President Trump be re-elected, but it'll be a landslide."
Simmons continues, “Families only care about two things: Is my family safe? Which means war, police, things like that. And can I feed my family? Do I have a job? Am I getting paid well? The rest is politics. If you're going to after President Trump for having an affair, you have to go all the way to George Washington and [Justin] Trudeau's father, everybody. You have to go after men. The tendency to wander."
KISS’ farewell shows will begin early 2019 and continue for three whole years as the iconic band says goodbye for the last time… maybe.
