Ace Frehley doesn’t “like talking politics.”

The original lead guitarist for rock super group KISS said he “frown[s] on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president” but he was happy to do so himself in a recent podcast interview.

The 67-year-old rocker believes Americans should wholeheartedly support President Donald Trump and anyone who does not, should “go move to another country,” as he shared in an episode of “Juliet: Unexpected.

“I hate politics,” Frehley said on the podcast. “I don’t like talking politics, and I don’t think politics and music mix. I really frown on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president or complain about — I just don’t think it belongs.”

“I’m an entertainer. There’s no reason to bring up politics. Let me play my guitar and write songs and entertain people. That’s my job,” he added.

He also feels pretty strongly about unconditionally supporting the president of the United States, regardless of what one thinks of him personally.

“He was elected,” Frehley said. “We live under the Constitution of the United States, and you’re supposed to support your president. Love him or hate him, you’re supposed to support him, or go move to another country.”

Frehley, who co-founded Kiss in 1973, believes the right to free speech shouldn’t mean anyone with an agenda should jump on an anti-government “bandwagon.”

“Being American, we have the right to free speech, and I’m all for everybody putting their two cents in on everything, but when musicians or actors get really verbal and jump on a bandwagon against our government, I don’t agree with that,” he said.

While Frehley thinks Trump critics should be packing their bags, researchers have found that one-third of natural-born Americans actually have considered moving outside of the U.S., but the president has nothing to do with it.

A new report by researchers from Tufts University and the University of Kent in the United Kingdom has found that liberal or conservative political ideologies have little to do with the desire to live abroad. The most popular reason, at  87.4 percent, is simply a desire to explore the world.

“While one might think that ideological orientation plays a role, at least in this pre-Trump survey, we found out that it did not, at least not directly,” Dr. Amanda Klekowski von Koppenfels, of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies, said in a news release.

A person’s national identity was also an important factor in how the results turned out in the study using data from 2014.

“We asked respondents if they had a ‘very strong,’ ‘somewhat strong,’ ‘not very strong,’ or ‘not strong at all’ American national identity. Those who had anything other than ‘very strong’ national identity were more likely to aspire to live abroad,” Klekowski von Koppenfels told StudyFinds.

A little more than half of the respondent, 58.4 percent, said they did not plan to live outside the U.S. for a period of time in the future.
