Published Sep 18, 2019Donald Trump is a lot of things to a lot of people, from reality show star to alleged sexual harasser to, uh, President of the United States of America. But is he also a human laxative? At least two musicians have claimed that the controversial figure has given them loose stools. Last year, Sia said she got "crazy diarrhea" after meeting with Trump on SNL, and now Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has suggested the same thing.
Green Day's new album Father of All... does not have any songs about Trump. Considering these are the guys that wrote American Idiot, that's something of a surprise. But Armstrong told Kerrang! that POTUS makes him need the potty.
"I mean, I draw no inspiration from the President of the United States, because he's just… there's nothing," he said. "Trump gives me diarrhea, you know? I don't want to write a song about it!"
Is he being metaphorical, or does the Donald's leadership style actually give people the runs? It's hard to know for sure, but we'll keep our Google alerts set on "Trump diarrhea" until we get to the bottom of this.
Green Day's Father of All... arrives on February 7 via Reprise/Warner. In support of the album, the band will be heading out on the "The Hella Mega Tour," which also features Weezer and Fall Out Boy.
