Van Halen Icon Sammy Hagar Bashes Trump Haters, ‘Give Him a Chance’

Finally there is a celebrity who speaks sense!

Listen up, Cher.

Rolling Stone conducted an interview with the legend Sammy Hagar, former lead singer of Van Halen (among his other epic accomplishments).

The story hit news stands on June 23rd and when the interview turned political, Hagar gave a response that might have been unexpected.

You see, he has HOPE in America’s current president.

Shocking, right?

Andy Greene of Rolling Stone asked the musician what grade he would give President Trump.

Here is the rockstar’s response:  “I don’t think you can grade him yet, because the poor guy can’t get anything done.

The opposition has become so crazy that they’re not gonna even give him a chance.

I’d like to see him have a chance.

He’s the president of the United States, and without getting any changes he ain’t helping us.”

Hagar’s statement is like a rare case of caviar in this world of celebrity hate for our president.

Meryl Streep, Tom Morello, and Whoopi Goldberg’s ears must be pushing smoke out right about now.

But Hagar’s eggs aren’t all in Trump’s basket: “… maybe [President Trump] makes some changes that don’t work, and then maybe the next guy will come in and say, ‘That didn’t work, I’ll do it this way.’ Because I don’t think anybody knows what the fuck they’re doing out there right now.”

Look at that. A celebrity who uses logic.

How refreshing.
