Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis Talks Bernie Sanders: “He’s Old And Cute”

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis discussed his support of Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Jonesy’s Jukebox earlier this week.

“This cat Bernie Sanders stood out as being honest and likable, and actually human, a human being who cared about other human beings. So right away, we said if we ever get a chance to play a benefit for this guy, we’ll do it. If he’s real, and he makes it that far, we’ll play a show for him. Low and behold, 9 months go by, he needs us to play, so we’re there for him.”

We offered to pay for the rent of the hotel, and Bernie would not accept, he said, ‘No, I can’t take your money. That’s not how I work, I’m not taking those size contributions from any groups or organizations. If I get the nomination, you are able to donate up to $2,700.’ [That is] very unpolitical like of him.

“He’s cute. He’s old and cute.”

“I think in this case I like the dude better. God bless the whole Clinton family. Bill, I like a lot, but I prefer Bernie to Hilary.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers have joined the effort to help elect Bernie Sanders to the presidency. The Los Angeles-based alternative rockers will headline an all-ages show at the Theatre at Ace Hotel on Friday, February 5, as part of a FEEL THE BERN political fundraiser. Ticket sales will go toward Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Click here for tickets.

    I know that an American President is only allowed to serve two consecutive terms in office, but can they run again at a later date? I mean, could you be President for 8 years and then after someone else has had a turn, run for President again? Like for example, could Bill Clinton run again should he wish?

    Hey Anthony, you’re middle-aged and not that cute. And not that talented, either.

  • Bilbo

    Come on, get a clue. Does this guy doesn’t have a brain? Democrats, Republicans, they’re all the same. They are only there to serve the people who put them in there, not you or me. They live, we sleep…
