Rocker Tommy Lee ‘Threatens’ To Return To Greece If Trump Gets Reelected

Rocker Tommy Lee of Motley Crue has “threatened” to move back to his country of origin if President Donald Trump wins re-election in November.

During an interview with The Big Issue, the famous drummer said that Trump is “embarrassing” America in front of the world.

“Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK – I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to Greece and get a house on one of the islands,” Lee declared.

“The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing. I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f**k are you guys doing over there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country,’” he continued.

Lee went on to say that Trump will “do anything” to win the White House and urged people to get out and vote for a Biden landslide victory.

“This guy [Trump] is going to do anything to win. It’s going to be skullduggery, shenanigans, subterfuge,” he said. “And also, I feel that if we don’t come out to vote in the numbers we need for a landslide that’s not in his favor, he’s going to contest the election. I don’t think he’s going to want to leave the White House. This thing is not a lock. I don’t care what the polls say.”

But despite the negativity of the political landscape or the Covid-19 disruption that delayed Mötley Crüe’s planned stadium tour, playing in front of audiences is keeping Lee optimistic.

He adds: “I can just imagine what it’s going to be like being on stage with that many people and that energy when it’s OK to be together again. It’s going to be priceless – that kind of energy I’m probably never going to see again in my lifetime. Can you imagine what that’s going to be like? Holy shit!”

Lee has made it clear that he’s against Trump.

When Trump and first lady Melania Trump were diagnosed with coronavirus earlier this month, Lee tweeted about karma.

Additionally, Lee slammed Trump for his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic by retweeting a letter ridiculing Trump written by Craig Alan Wilkins.

In 2018, the rocker called out Trump for his response to the deadly California wildfires that killed dozens of people. “Can you be anymore insensitive you f—–g moron,” Lee said.
