What Kind Of President Does MEGADETH's DAVE MUSTAINE Want?August 17, 2015
Asked by a fan on Twitter whom he would like to see as the next president of the United States Of America, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine responded: "Someone who gave a shit, who wasn't planted or paid off, who wasn't a puppet, and who understood the word 'servant.'"
During MEGADETH's April 2014 concert in Tucson, Arizona, Mustaine introduced the song "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" by saying: "If I was your president…. [Chuckles] Oh, boy… I'll tell you what… There would be no fucking 'mom jeans' on this guy." [Editor's note: Mustaine was referring to an old joke about how President Obama wears mom jeans.]
Mustaine in 2012 revealed his "birther" opinions on a talk show, saying he doubted President Barack Obama was born in the United States. He told radio host Alex Jones: "With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake… And you see the signs in Kenya that say 'the birthplace of Barack Obama.' Hello?! C'mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?" He also praised then-candidate Rick Santorum in the Republican primary. He explained at the time that the Pennsylvania politician looked "like he could be a really cool president… kind of like a JFK kind of guy."
Mustaine also made headlines in August 2012 when he said on stage during a concert in Singapore that Obama was behind the shooting rampages near Denver and Milwaukee. He continued his diatribe by wondering where he was going to live "if America keeps going the way it's going, because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."
