During a “Juliet: Unexpected” podcast interview, Paul Daniel “Ace” Frehley opened up about musicians, politics and the anti-Trump sentiment so often heard in the entertainment industry.
Paul Daniel “Ace” Frehley is well known for being an original member of the iconic rock band KISS.
“Let me say this about Trump. Whether you love him or hate him, if you’re an American and you’re a patriot, you should get behind your president,” Frehly said.
“He was elected. We live under the Constitution of the United States, and you’re supposed to support your president.
“Love him or hate him, you’re supposed to support him, or go move to another country. … Being American, we have the right to free speech, and I’m all for everybody putting their two cents in on everything, but when musicians or actors get really verbal and jump on a bandwagon against our government, I don’t agree with that.”
Frehley kicked-off the political talk segment by sharing the same belief that others, such as country legend Reba McEntire, have expressed in the past.
“I hate politics. I don’t like talking politics, and I don’t think politics and music mix,” he said. “I really frown on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president or complain about … I just don’t think it belongs.”
Frehley added, “I’m an entertainer. There’s no reason to bring up politics. Let me play my guitar and write songs and entertain people. That’s my job.”
