Post Malone has some people scratching their heads, following his Dec. 19 interview with Charlamagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club. His brief chat about music was overshadowed by the various other, non-recording industry topics: John F. Kennedy’s assassination, why voting doesn’t matter, and why he’d play at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.
After stating too many people in today’s society are critical and speak too freely about situations they don’t understand, Malone discussed the tattoo of JFK on his arm; calling him “a real one” and stating he was “the only President to speak out against the crazy corruption stuff that’s going on in our government nowadays.”
While unaware of JFK’s role in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 — which Charlamagne briefly explained — Malone is sure he was assassinated “by us.”
“Literally days before he died he was talking about how our government focuses on corruption instead of Truth and all the things,” said Malone. “There’s a great speech where he goes back and forth between the negatives and what we should be focusing on. And days after that, he died.”
Continuing on, Malone reveals that he didn’t vote in the past election because “our votes are suggestions to the Electoral College.” Despite not voting, and feeling neither candidate was fit for office, Malone would play Trump’s inauguration ceremony if he was asked.
“It doesn’t make any sense because if he was to say, ‘Yo, I really like your music. Can you come and do a show?’ Why would I get backlash because of someone booking me?’” theorized Malone. “If I do his show, does that mean I’m a supporter of him?”
