Trending Politics reports that Tommy Lee of Motley Crue suggested he may move back to the United Kingdom if President Trump is re-elected.
“Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK – I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to Greece and get a house on one of the islands,” Lee exclaimed.
“The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing.”
“I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f**k are you guys doing over there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country,’” he continued.
“This guy [Trump] is going to do anything to win. It’s going to be skullduggery, shenanigans, subterfuge,” he added.
“And also, I feel that if we don’t come out to vote in the numbers we need for a landslide that’s not in his favor, he’s going to contest the election. I don’t think he’s going to want to leave the White House. This thing is not a lock. I don’t care what the polls say.”
“I can just imagine what it’s going to be like being on stage with that many people and that energy when it’s OK to be together again. It’s going to be priceless – that kind of energy I’m probably never going to see again in my lifetime. Can you imagine what that’s going to be like? Holy sh*t!”
"It’s going to be priceless – that kind of energy I’m probably never going to see again in my lifetime." Think you can't wait to go to a gig again? That's nothing on @MrTommyLand https://t.co/BZoP5Wz6zV

In 2018, the rocker called Trump a moron.
“Can you be anymore insensitive you f—–g moron,” Lee questioned.
Do you want us to open the door for you, or?
I mean, heck, I’ll even help carry your bags. I literally forget you take up space in this country about 99% of the time anyways, so trust me, we won’t even feel a ripple.
You gotta love how the famous drummer says that we need to stop voting for celebrities, as he’s giving us his two cents and advice… as a fellow celebrity.
From Trending Politics:
But despite the negativity of the political landscape or the Covid-19 disruption that delayed Mötley Crüe’s planned stadium tour, playing in front of audiences is keeping Lee optimistic.
Additionally, Lee slammed Trump for his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic by retweeting a letter ridiculing Trump written by Craig Alan Wilkins.
