We’d like to be a fly on the wall for this conversation if it ever happens. Our beloved Ozzy Osbourne had a few things to say about Donald Trump in a recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine. What’s your favorite Ozzy feud? The one with Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward? How about bassist Bob Daisley? Or maybe Bruce Dickinson? Or The Bat? Or that time Ozzy fought Elton John on Celebrity Deathmatch?
Back to the feud at hand, Ozzy says, “If I was running for president, I would try and find out a little bit about politics.” “Because the f**king guy you’ve got in there now doesn’t know that much about it, I don’t think. The Constitution says that anyone can be president. But it’s not like anyone could be a f**king heart surgeon and just go in with a scalpel. You have to know what you’re f**king doing. And anyone who runs for office, I think there should be an age limit. Eight years is nothing but to us, but if you’re f**king 76, eight years is like death.”
He adds, “I’m honest enough to say I don’t know what the f**k I’m talking about.” “In my lifetime, I’ve never known anything like this. It’s getting worse, not better. And this guy’s acting like a fool. I don’t really like to talk politics that much, but I’ve got to say what I feel with this guy. There’s not much hope left. Maybe he’s got a trick up his sleeve and he’s going to surprise us all, and I hope he has. [Recently], over a thousand more people died in one day [in America]. That’s f**king crazy. People got to get with this social distancing and mask-wearing or else it’s never gonna go away.”
