Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has weighed in on the 2016 presidential election along with Donald Trump’s inclusion. Flea even went as far to say, “He’s just some egotistical, silly person whose main concern in life is getting a bl-wjob.”

The members of Red Hot Chili Peppers have been outspoken advocates for Democratic nominee Bernie Sanders, even volunteering to perform at a fundraiser for Bernie in Los Angeles. Like many of Sanders’ supporters, Flea isn’t a fan of Donald Trump, as evidenced in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

“I can’t take Donald Trump or anything he says seriously,” he says. “I just think that he’s a silly reality-show bozo and blustering guy who likes getting attention. I don’t think he wants to be president, and I don’t think he has a chance to be the president. He’s just some egotistical, silly person whose main concern in life is getting a bl-wjob. He wants to be on TV and he wants everyone to thinks he’s important.”

Flea also let loose on Republican candidate Ted Cruz. “Ted Cruz is a selfish, mean-spirited man. He’s taking millions of dollars from companies like Goldman Sachs and all these corporations and those are the people who are going to tell him what to do if he gets in office,” says Flea. “The NRA and big financial institutions are going to tell him what to do, and he’s going to do what they say because they’re the ones that own him.”

The Chili Peppers are still hard at work in the studio creating the band’s 11th studio album. RHCP even shared a photo on Instagram claiming to have finished recording a single song top-to-bottom in just four hours.
