Dave Grohl Says He's 'Ashamed' of Trump When He Travels Abroad

As a former member of Nirvana and now the frontman of the supergroup Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl is a cultural icon. Though part of his appeal is his refusal to paint himself as anything more than a regular guy who likes to rock and have a good time, he won't deny he has some opinions when it comes to politics while he's traveling abroad. Currently on Foo Figthers' "Concrete and Gold" tour, Grohl has mentioned it's hard not to feel ashamed about President Trump while visiting other countries.

Grohl told England's GQ:

Today, the American Dream is broken. I've probably travelled internationally more than our current president and the one thing I understand that he doesn't is that the world isn't as big as you think it is.

It is all in your neighborhood. India, Asia, Iceland aren't other solar systems. I am ashamed of our president. I feel apologetic for it when I travel.

Grohl realizes his fans come to him for music, not for political takes:

Listen, who cares what I think about guns or religion, but the thing about Trump that stings the most is this: he just seems like a massive jerk. Right?

For the most part, the Foo Fighters prefer to keep their concerts apolitical, though Grohl did admit the lyrics from his newest album's opening track, T-Shirt, were inspired by a press conference that devolved into a shouting match shortly after the President's inauguration:

All that gross ambition for power and control freaked me out.

Meanwhile, the "Concrete and Gold" tour continues.

Grohl has already made several other headlines during the band's journey. On April 23, he chugged a can of beer onstage to roars from the crowd:

And on April 18, he invited an audience member onstage to shred the lead guitar part to Monkey Wrench...and shred he did.

Add in a healthy dose of political commentary, and it seems we've got a classic tour on our hands!

Not only does a sign language interpreter have to know the signs, but they also have to know the way to sign in order to properly convey tone and subtext as happens in verbal communication.

American Sign Language interpreter Amber Galloway Gallego has that down to an art.
