SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian recalls John Dolmayan’s Donald Trump support is frustrating. He also discussed his relationship with his bandmates with drummer John Dolmayan.
A few months ago, SYSTEM OF A DOWN‘s drummer John Dolmayan has praised Donald Trump. He says Democrats of “demonizing” the president and “blaming him for everything under the sun.” He also called Democrats “the true bigots”.
Because of Dolmayan’s support of Trump, Tankian wants to talks about this political situation for the USA election.
Speaking in a new interview with Forbes, Serj Tankian reveals his thoughts about these different political views:
“He is Armenian. He’s my brother-in-law and my drummer. Is it frustrating being politically opposite to your own drummer and brother-in-law? F*** yeah. Of course, it’s frustrating. But that’s having to do with American politics.
When it comes to Armenian issues we’re on the same exact page. We know what injustice is happening, we work together. We’re doing different auction activities and working together on many fronts. The Armenian nation is united, whether you voted for Republican, Democrat, or neither.”
Serj also added:
“But, I was a Bernie Sanders supporter, I still am. I feel like he still would’ve been the best choice going forward. But I’m okay with Biden.
I’m happy that they’ve made that statement. The elections are coming up and normally I’m very vocal, but this war and the daily death toll have really taken up my full spectrum of focus.”
We don’t know how SOAD managed this status between the band. But they seem fine.
