Sebastian Bach says that he "would do a better job" running the country than Donald Trump.
The former SKID ROW singer made his claim in a July 8 Twitter exchange with noted practical joker Captain Janks, who wrote: "2016 was truly the worst time for American voters. What choice did we have? Trump or Hillary [Clinton]. Two hacks without an ounce of integrity."
In response, Bach tweeted: "One is actually a politician for a living. The other hosted a reality TV show. The choice seems pretty clear to me"
After one of Sebastian's followers chimed in with "Sebastian, you could do a much better job", Bach came back with: "I'm actually not running for president I'm perfectly happy playing music for a living. An actual politician would do a much better job at running the country then somebody who has never been a politician before. Is this so hard to grasp for you?"
When the same person responded, "Sebastian, I was joking. I understood your tweet just fine." Bach wrote back: "Understood. actually, having said that, I would do a better job. After all my reality TV shows were better than his reality TV shows so that makes me automatically more qualified"
Sebastian's latest comments echo those he made last year, when he revealed to TheRecord.com that "voted for Hilary" in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. "I don't understand how anybody would accept a reality-show host as president instead of a politician," he said. "It's insanity. It's like starting a band and your first show is at Toronto SkyDome. You gotta build up to it."
Almost two years ago, Bach told Music Injection that things had gotten particularly bleak in the months after Trump took office.
"Well, since Donald Trump became president, Facebook became not fun for me," he said. "Every headline sucks, everything sucks and I get to the point where I can't take it! All of that news, constantly, day after day, week after week, it gets me down and it gets me in a bad mood.
"I don't know about everybody else, but when I read about nuclear war, I find it hard to get on with my day," he added. "I thought we got rid of that nuclear war conversation in the '70s! It gets [me] very sad and angry at the same time. Climate change makes me angry. It makes me mad that people deny that when the world is fucked. It makes me furious."
Sebastian recently confirmed that he was preparing to make the follow-up to his 2014 album "Give 'Em Hell".
