Richards recently spoke with the BBC about a variety of things surrounding his long career and life, and when the topic inevitably turned broader — and to Trump in particular — the guitarist didn’t hold back!
Richards relayed a story about how back in ’89, the Stones were on their Steel Wheels tour when it rolled through Atlantic City.
There, the band arrived to the show to find out that Trump had taken some, um, liberties in describing the concert — the show was actually billed as “Donald Trump presents… the Rolling Stones.”
Wait, WTF?! Come on, Donald!!! For Keith’s part, he didn’t hold back at all, though. He pulled out a knife and stuck it into the table!!
Looking back on that little stab-session, Richards remembered it with the same anger towards Trump that the has now, saying (below):
“I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ├óΓé¼╦£You have to get rid of this man!’ Now America has to get rid of him. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!”
Not sure that pulling a knife in this day and age is the wisest thing, but good on Keith for being so consistently anti-Trump over the years!
Seems he was dead-right about that very early on!!
