SEBASTIAN BACH: 'Anyone Is Smarter' Than Who We Have As President Now

February 25, 2020

Sebastian Bach says that any presidential candidate is "smarter" than Donald Trump.

The former SKID ROW singer made the comment while responding to a question from a Twitter follower about his "honest thoughts on Bernie Sanders," an early favorite for the Democratic nomination.

"My honest thoughts are that voting for an actual politician to be a politician will always be better than voting for a reality TV show host to be a politician," Bach wrote. "I wish someone like @GavinNewsom would run but anyone is smarter than who we have now"

Bach, who frequently criticizes Trump's policies, also backed Alex Skolnick after the TESTAMENT guitarist publicly revealed that he will vote for Elizabeth Warren in the New York primary.

"Great choice @ewarren kicks ass", Sebastian tweeted.

Last August, Bach lambasted Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Vice President Mike Pence and other Republican leaders for their inaction on gun regulation. A month earlier, Bach made headlines when he said that he "would do a better job" running the county than Trump.

In a 2018 interview with TheRecord.com, Sebastian revealed that he voted for Hilary Clinton 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."

Three years ago, Bach told Music Injection that things had gotten particularly bleak in the first few 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 in the process of making the follow-up to his 2014 album "Give 'Em Hell".
