Rock star Tommy Lee reposted “copypasta” on his social media accounts that goes after President Trump supporters, saying they better hope “liberals never gain control of the [White House] again.”
The message, first posted on Reddit on July 15, 2018, warns that liberals will “pay you back so f–king hard for all of this shit.” The payback includes, “Planned Parenthoods on every damn corner” and having Air Force One being repainted pink to fly “over your beloved Bible Belt 6 days a week, tossing birth control pills, condoms & atheist literature from the cockpit.”
The message also mentions Chick-fil-A and warns liberals will be “buying all those and giving them to any LGBTQ person your sick cult leaders tortured with conversion therapy. Have fun with the new menu you bigoted f–ks.”
The post adds with a warning that they will “gather up ALL of your guns, melt them down and them into a gargantuan meal mountain emblazoned with the face of Hilary Clinton.”
It concludes that liberals will take over the Fox News building and begin “turning Hannity’s office into a giant unisex bathroom with changing tables and free tampons.”
The 56-year-old Mötley Crüe drummer further tweeted Thursday and Friday that he is taking “a Trump,” adding the poop emoji.
The iconic singer-songwriter behind the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash writes about President Trump’s curious relationship with Russia—and why he must be defeated in 2020.

Lance Armstrong, the disgraced cyclist who was stripped of seven Tour de France victories, was excoriated on social media over the weekend after he boasted about passing Vice President Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path.
“I can’t drop many people on a bike these days but I just blew the f***in’ doors off Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path. Day. Made,” Armstrong tweeted Saturday.
Henry Rollins, the 80s-era political punk rocker, former Black Flag frontman-turned actor and activist, said in a lengthy Daily Beast interview that even though the backward-thinking electorate that thrusted Donald Trump into the White House is “coming to an end,” the “Democratic candidates are just no match” for him.
Describing President Trump as a “corny, pseudo-populist like Reagan,” Rollins insists that the aging voter base that elected both Republican firebrands is “dying off.”
“I think there’s going to be a huge rejection of this really antiquated bigotry,” Henry Rollinssaid. “And so I think what you’re seeing right now is the old guard kicking and screaming as it’s dying off. And that, to me, is 2019 punk rock.”
