The prolific punk rock legend, who hasn’t written a song in more than a decade but publishes books and newspaper columns and gives lengthy spoken-word performances, said his wealth insulates him from most of the consequences of a potential Donald Trump presidency, reported The Guardian.
“With my economic altitude, I don’t feel any of this,” Rollins said. “Donald Trump’s going to suck if you’re brown, black, lower middle-class or poor … I’m just going to enjoy the tax breaks that rich guys get from guys like him and keep on grooving.”The former Black Flag singer said he’s concerned about how Trump supporters will react if the real estate developer and former reality TV star loses to Hillary Clinton.
“Trump fans are going to be very dangerous losers,” Rollins said. “And, if he wins, liberals will be very whiny and hilarious losers. There’ll be lines out of Starbucks, people wanting quadruple lattes; there’ll be more hand-wringing, more poetry – that’s a liberal on a bad day. The angry Tea Party person on a bad day, you lock and load, and go find a Muslim or brown-skinned person.”But he’s confident the United States will survive, no matter what happens after the election.
“America gets what America deserves,” Rollins said. “America’s a tough place full of tough people, and I’m an example of a tough American. If you can’t take a punch in the teeth, you should move to Canada.”
