AXL ROSE Slams DONALD TRUMP: ‘We Don’t Have A President’

Axl Rose has once again slammed Donald Trump, saying that "we don't have a President." The GUNS N' ROSES singer made his latest comment in response to an interview the billionaire real estate mogul gave to The Hill in which he excoriated Jeff Sessions, saying I don't have an attorney general." Trump had previously called Sessions "weak" and disloyal. On Wednesday (September 19), Rose tweeted: "Trump rips into Jeff Sessions: 'I don't have an Attorney General.' And we don’t have a President." Back in November 2016, Rose took to Twitter to condemn then-President-elect Donald Trump's choice for U.S. attorney general, and to berate Trump for demanding an apology from the cast of the Broadway show "Hamilton" after then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed when he attended the musical. One month later, Rose invited fans at a GUNS N' ROSES concert in Mexico City to beat the crap out of a large piñata designed to look like Trump. This past January, Axl blasted the Trump administration as the "gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful." Photo credit: Katarina Benzova
