It looks like Secret Service might be paying Morrissey a visit after the British singer said he would assassinate President Trump “for the safety of humanity.”
Washington Times reports:
The outspoken former frontman for The Smiths answered affirmatively during a recent interview with German magazine Der Spiegel in response to a hypothetical question about being able to kill Mr. Trump with the push of a button.
“If there was a button here and if you pressed on it, Trump would die dead [sic]– would you push it or not?” Der Spiegel asked Morrissey.
“I would, for the safety of humanity. It has nothing to do with my personal opinion of his face or his family, but in the interest of humanity I would push,” the singer responded.
Morrissey’s response to the magazine’s hypothetical question about killing the president was one of a handful of remarks published by Der Spiegel conveying his thoughts on the 45th president of the United States.
“Trump has received so much attention, especially when compared to other candidates — Bernie Sanders, for example. Although the media said he would not win, every day, all the headlines: Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump!” Morrissey raged.
The British singer has been in the news lately for slamming German Chancellor Angela Merkel over her open border policy.
Morrissey told Der Spiegel, “I want Germany to be German. I want France to be French.
“If you try to make everything multicultural, you will not have any culture in the end.”
“All European countries have fought for their identity for many, many years.”
“And now they just throw it away. I think that’s sad.”
