Ozzy Osbourne On Donald Trump: “If The President Says Something, I Do The Opposite”
Following Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor’s wish for people to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on” amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Prince Of Darkness has started weighing in on certain behaviours during this strange, unsettling time – and especially regarding President Donald Trump’s often conflicting statements.
“Whether you like the government or whether you don’t, whatever, Dr. Fauci, all these virologist people, they [tell] us what we should do: wear a mask, wash hands, social distance…” Ozzy Osbourne said during the Ozzy Speaks segment of SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard (via Blabbermouth).

“I don’t go anywhere. If the president says something, I do the opposite. ’Cause he changes his mind every hour. I mean, literally. I’m going, ‘What?’ ”
Ozzy also told Rolling Stone last week that the president was “acting like a fool”, adding of his stance: “I don’t really like to talk politics that much, but I’ve got to say what I feel with this guy. There’s not much hope left. Maybe he’s got a trick up his sleeve and he’s going to surprise us all, and I hope he has. [Recently], over a thousand more people died in one day [in America]. That’s fucking crazy. People got to get with this social distancing and mask-wearing or else it’s never gonna go away.”
Nearer to the start of the pandemic, Ozzy’s daughter Kelly encouraged fans to stay at home and be safe and respectful for the sake of her dad – who, as she wrote on Instagram, is of a higher risk right now.
“If you don’t have anyone to stay home for I beg you stay home for Ozzy,” she pleaded.
