During an appearance on “The Cassius Morris Show,” former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley praised Donald Trump saying that he is “the strongest leader that we’ve got.”
“I don’t think politics and rock and roll mix — in my opinion,” Ace said (see video below). “And I try to stay away from that as much as I can. I mean, once in a while, I’ll make a crack. I will say I’m a Trump supporter.
“All the politicians have had skeletons in the closet,” he added. “But I think Trump is the strongest leader that we’ve got on the table.”
Frehley previously expressed his support for Trump in 2018. “I hate politics. I don’t like talking politics, and I don’t think politics and music mix,” he said at the time. “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. 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.”
“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,” he continued. “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.
Ace added: “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.”
