The band Guns N’ Roses have taken a shot at Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus. The band has created a t-shirt that mocks Trump’s recent visit to an N95 mask factory in Arizona.
Trump visited and toured the factory and went against the company’s safety guidelines and did not wear a mask. Employees at the factory mocked Trump’s decision to not wear a mask by blasting the band’s hit song “Live and Let Die” over the PA system.
The viral video caught the attention of the band. On Wednesday the band used Twitter to announce that they were selling t-shirts mocking Trump. The t-shirts read, “Live N’ Let Die with COVID 45.” All proceeds from the t-shirts, which are selling for $25 each, go to the charity MusiCares, which has a COVID-19 relief fund.
Axl Rose, the lead singer of the band, is a verbal critic of Trump’s and his administration especially when it comes to his handling of this pandemic. Last week, Rose joined a long line of celebrities that panned the administration by tweeting to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
“It’s official! Whatever anyone may have previously thought of Steve Mnuchin he’s officially and a——,” the Guns N’ Roses frontman tweeted.
Mnuchin fired back at Rose with “What have you done for the country lately?” However, Mnuchin used a Liberian flag emoji. He deleted it and used an American flag emoji, but he didn’t catch it quick enough.
“My bad I didn’t get we’re hoping 2 emulate Liberia’s economic model but on the real unlike this admin, I’m not responsible for 70k+ deaths n’ unlike u I don’t hold a fed gov position of responsibility 2 the American people n’ go on TV tellin them 2 travel the US during a pandemic,” Rose shot back.
