“He’s the new president, that’s the end of the story.”
Not everyone who works in the entertainment business is a liberal. KISS front man Gene Simmons definitely leans right and he has some words of advice for liberals in his industry who are freaking out over Trump. Shut your pie holes.
He made the remarks in an appearance on the FOX Business Network with Charles Payne:
KISS Front Man Gene Simmons: Celebrities Should Shut Their Pie Holes
KISS front man Gene Simmons thinks it’s time for celebrities to keep their political opinions to themselves—especially when it comes to the results of the 2016 presidential election.
“I think celebrities should basically shut their pie holes and do what they do best—act, sing, tap dance… all that kind of stuff,” Simmons told the FOX Business Network’s Charles Payne.
Simmons, a former school teacher who plays bass in the legendary rock band that is known for songs “Beth” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” added: “President-elect Trump is the president. You can like it, you cannot like it. He’s the new president, that’s the end of the story.”
Here’s the video:
Simmons, whose real name is Chaim Witz, was born in Israel and has defied his industry over Israel boycotts.
The Weekly Standard reported in 2011:
Kiss’s Gene Simmons Stands Up for Israel and Arab Democracy Movements
Gene Simmons, a cofounder of the rock band Kiss, recently returned to his native Israel, after a 52-year hiatus. Unlike other entertainers who have boycotted the Jewish state, such as Elvis Costello, the Pixies, and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, Simmons expressed his support for Israel.
“The countries they should be boycotting are the same countries that the populations are rebelling,” Simmons told the AP, suggesting that the entertainers who boycott Israel should place a more critical eye on other nations in Israel’s neighborhood. “People long to be free … And they sure as hell don’t want somebody who’s a ruler who hasn’t been elected by them.”
