Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic praised a recent speech from President Trump.
In the midst of a worldwide health crisis, Black Lives Matter protests, and a president who tear gassed citizens for a photo op, people's true colors are really showing.
Many Nirvana fans have been disappointed by the news that Krist Novoselic, the former bassist of the '90s garage-rock legends, has even a sliver of respect for Donald Trump—going so far as to praise the president's recent Law and Order speech. "Wow!!! I know many of you can't stand him, however, Trump knocked it out of the park with this speech," Novoselic wrote in a post on his personal Facebook page. While the musician denounced Trump's threat to use military force to thwart protestors, he said the president's tone was "strong and direct." Novoselic then went on to cite "leftist insurrection" as a root cause of polarizing politics in the United States, although videos and witness accounts of protests have repeatedly claimed that police are often the first to incite violence, thus causing the "riots."
The post continued: "Imagine if so-called 'patriot militias' were raising this kind of hell? If this were the case, left wing people would welcome federal intervention Most Americans want peace in their communities and President Trump spoke to this desire." Debatable, but OK!
It appears Novoselic either deleted the post or made his Facebook private, which was a good call on his behalf. But, because this is the Internet and people take screenshots of anything, you can read his post below. No need to worry too much about Novoselic's allegiance to Trump, though—he said he voted for Gary Johnson in 2016. Sorry, guys, but it might be time to unstan Nirvana.
