U2 are damned if they do, and damned if they don't re: Trump. I've seen a lot of rude comments about Bono meeting up with GWB a couple of weeks ago. You just simply cannot make everyone happy when it comes to politics.

Yeah, I don't get this. I've never been a fan of GWB, but he did work with Bono on the AIDS cause. It doesn't bother me that Bono still associates with him, nor that he met Pence earlier this year to attempt to get his support for the AIDS cause. It's really a dumb thing to pick on the band or Bono about.

Bono is passionate and cares about these things and knows politicians have to be involved. He's wisely pragmatic about it.

History repeats itself with this band. It's OK if they don't release an album for a long time. The issue as I see it is the repeated promises and let downs.
Couldn't agree more.
