“Keith Richards, guitarist for the legendary rock `n roll band the Rolling Stones, said the US should get rid of President Donald Trump — and recalled when he said he did the same during a 1989 tour by wielding a knife.
The rock icon told the BBC Trump was their promoter for an Atlantic City show in 1989, and recalled going red with anger when the future President`s name took top billing for their show as `Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones.`
`I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: `You have to get rid of this man,` Richards said. He continued, `Now America has to get rid of him. Don`t say I didn`t warn you.`”
In 1989 Keith Richards already had 25 years of drug and alcohol abuse under his belt, but he had enough presence of mind to realize that Donald Trump was a toxic narcissistic buffoon who shouldn`t be associated with his concert tour.
Thirty years later the rock `n roll icon has only a couple of hundred functioning brain cells, but he still recognizes Trump as an existential threat to our American democracy.
Trump`s supporters may have a few thousand more functioning brain cells that the legendary guitarist, but they utterly fail to recognize their Messiah as a fuc*ing moron.
Thirty years ago Richards punctuated his disgust for Trump by sticking his beloved knife, that he probably used to cut lines of cocaine, into a table.
We feel Richards, God knows how many lovers of democracy have punched walls, and kicked their TV when Trump`s on the screen.
Richards` music will live forever, I pray and hope that his warning will inspire us to overthrow Trump by any means necessary.
