Songwriter To Trumpsters: ‘If You’re A Trump Supporter Don’t Come To My Show’
Todd Rundgren, a longtime singer and songwriter, spoke with Variety and warned Trump supporters not to attend his shows, saying they “won’t have a good time.”
“If I had the power, I’d say: If you’re a Trump supporter, don’t come to my show, because you won’t have a good time,” Rundgren said in his Variety interview released Sunday.
Rundgren collaborated in his new album “White Night” with Donald Fagen. They wrote an anti-Trump song called “Man in the Tin Foil Hat.”
Part of the lyrics include:
“He’s coming down the escalator with a girl from east of here, because the man in the tin foil hat is leading like a teenage girl. He put’s the ‘pluto’ in plutocrat, he hasn’t got time for losers, unless they do what he demands.”
Rundgren went on to give details of his concert, saying that it will include plenty of insulting Trump jokes.
“I guarantee that in this show, if you’re a Trump supporter, you will likely be offended. Let the buyer beware! I mean, if you can’t take a joke, or you can’t admit that you’ve made a mistake, you don’t belong with the rest of us,” he said with a laugh.
“And also, I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself,” he added.
