Guns N' Roses Axl Rose Digs At Trump, Releases “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45” T-shirts
Musician Axl Rose from rock band Guns N’ Roses recently launched t-shirts that say “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45” on Thursday. The t-shirt was clearly an attack against the President as it referenced 45, and Trump is the 45th president of the United States.
The coronavirus shirt was released through the Guns N’ Roses official Twitter account. It sells for a very pricey $25, with 100% of its proceeds going to MusiCares, a charity aimed at helping people within the music industry.
The release of the shirt comes shortly after President Donald Trump’s visit to the Honeywell Factory in Arizona, where face masks are being produced. As he was inspecting the factory, the speakers blasted the Guns N’ Roses song, “Live and Let Die.” Just recently, Rose also got in a Twitter fight with President Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, calling him an “a-hole.”
“It’s official! Whatever anyone may have previously thought of Steve Mnuchin he’s officially an a**hole,” Rose tweeted, to which Mnuchin replied with a now-deleted tweet, saying, “What have you done for the country lately?” and included an emoji of the Liberian flag. Shortly after, Mnuchin tweeted the same response but included the emoji of the American flag. Rose got back at Mnuchin again and said, “My bad I didn’t get we’re hoping 2 emulate Liberia’s economic model but on the real unlike this admin I’m not responsible for 70k+ deaths.”
The Guns N’ Roses member has always been a staunch Trump critic and has always voiced out his dislike for the President. He has expressed his disappointment regarding the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus, and in 2018 has publicly voiced out that he didn’t want the President to play any of his music during any of his campaigns. Just recently, Rose also retweeted a tweet by Democratic presumptive nominee, Joe Biden, who said, “Donald Trump just doesn’t understand: We have an economic crisis because we have a public health crisis—and we have a public health crisis because he failed to act.”
