KISS is one band you won’t find bashing President Donald Trump. With many entertainers using their platform to condemn the president and his “America First” agenda, a member of the legendary group finally had enough. He decided to give Trump-haters a piece of his mind.

Ace Frehley was the original lead guitarist for KISS before leaving the New York rock band in 1982 and returning in 1996 and 2002 for farewell tours. Now working on a solo project called “Spaceman,” the rocker, whose real name is Paul, was interviewed by Juliet Huddy on the Juliet: Unexpected podcast. That’s where he shared some views about President Donald Trump which could get him blackballed in the entertainment industry.

“Whether you love him or hate him, if you’re an American and you’re a patriot, you should get behind your president,” said the musician. “Being American, we have the right to free speech, and I’m all for everybody putting their two cents in on everything. But when musicians or actors get really verbal and jump on a bandwagon against our government, I don’t agree with that.”

Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has called on all Americans to support Donald Trump or live in another country. The rocker said that all Americans should be ‘patriots’ and back the office rather than the man.

The 67-year-old musician said he doesn’t believe music and politics should mix and that many in the entertainment business should keep their political opinions to themselves. 

Frehley also said that anyone who dose not support Donald Trump should live in another country. He was being interviewed by Juliet Huddy on the Juliet: Unexpected podcast about his new solo album, Spaceman, when he made the controversial remarks. [Source: Daily Mail]

“He was elected,” Frehley said of President Trump. “We live under the Constitution of the United States, and you’re supposed to support your president. Love him or hate him, you’re supposed to support him, or go move to another country.”

“I hate politics. I don’t like talking politics, and I don’t think politics and music mix,” he added. “I really frown on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president or complain about. I just don’t think it belongs. I’m an entertainer. There’s no reason to bring up politics. Let me play my guitar and write songs and entertain people. That’s my job.”

Fellow KISS member Gene Simmons has also spoken out in support of President Trump and traditional American values. Simmons defended Christian football and baseball player Tim Tebow, who has constantly been ridiculed for his faith during his career.

“Here’s a man who believes in God and people pick on him,” Simmons said. “If he was a Jew or a Muslim and you did that — people would never dare. But for some reason, if he’s a Christian, you’re allowed to pick on him.”

He has also said that if you are going to immigrate to America, you ought to learn how to speak proper English, a sentiment not popular among the bleeding-heart liberals who believe immigrants are entitled to an untold amount of handouts without ever having to assimilate to our culture.

“As an immigrant, I’m telling you,” Simmons said in an interview with HuffPost Live, “learn to speak goddamn English.” This surely was not a welcome opinion to the leftists over at The Huffington Post, but that didn’t stop the rocker from saying what needed to be said.

Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley are absolutely right. We need to support President Donald Trump and traditional American values. Share this article if you agree.
