Donald Trump may be a fan of Green Day’s musical, “American Idiot,” but let’s just say that the band just isn’t all that into him. Trump praised Green Day’s creation after seeing it on Broadway in 2010. The band, however, took to the stage Sunday night at the American Music Awards to bash The Donald on live television.
In the middle of their new song, “Bang Bang,” singer Billy Joe Armstrong took a small break to lead the crowd in a chant that will likely trigger one of Trump’s famous Twitter tantrums:
“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”
Because they are apparently unfamiliar with Green Day and the fact that the band dedicated an entire album to tearing George W. Bush a new orifice, Trump supporters are taking to Twitter to boycott the band.
BOYCOTT GREEN DAY NOWW https://t.co/krJma9lNxf

If this “boycott” is anything like their others, they are going to stop by Starbucks to buy a Trump Cup on their way to the record store (those still exist, right?) to buy every Green Day album so they can listen to them and give them a bad review while they plan to not attend a musical that is sold out through the next century and a half.
No one ever accused Trump supporters of being smart.

John Prager is an unfortunate Liberal soul who lives uncomfortably in the middle of a Conservative hellscape.
Prager spends much of his time poking Trump’s meth-addled, uneducated fans with a pointy stick and is currently writing a book of muskrat recipes (not really) as well as putting together a scrapbook of his favorite death threats. His life’s aspiration is to rule the world with an iron fist, or find that sock he’s been looking for.
