Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello Compares Donald Trump To ‘Frat House Rapist’


Tom Morello, one of the most skilled musicians of our time, has used his extensive influence to speak out against Donald Trump. In a video posted as an introduction to folksinger Ryan Harvey’s “Old Man Trump”, the Rage Against The Machine frontman absolutely destroys the too-tanned Presidential candidate. He compares his perspective on race relations to “an old-school segregationist”. On foreign policy, Morello likens him to “an old-school napalmist”. And on women’s issues? “He’s like a frat-house rapist”. In conclusion, “let’s not elect that guy”.

Morello guests on Harvey’s “Old Man Trump” alongside Ani DiFranco. Morello guests on Harvey’s new tune alongside Ani DiFranco. Fun fact: its lyrics actually originate from Woody Guthrie, who called out Fred Trump for racism back in the day. Clearly it’s a genetic thing. The track is out now via the label co-run by Harvey and Morello, Fireband Records.

Morello will spend the latter part of the year touring with Prophets of Rage, his new badass supergroup that boasts a line-up including bandmates from Rage Against the Machine – Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk – Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Public Enemy’s Chuck D. It’s the ’90s rap metal dream come true, and fuck, how we need it to visit Australia.
