Flame-throwing mutant guitarist from Mad Max turns down Trump inauguration

THE mutant guitarist from Mad Max: Fury Road has become the latest musician to reject an offer to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration.

The Doof Warrior has said that despite a huge cash offer from the Republican Party he just didn’t see how he could morally do it.

He said: “Being part of Immortan Joe’s road militia could be seen as quite a right-wing thing to do for any musician, but I’ve got to draw the line somewhere.

“I’d rather continue to prowl the desert wasteland, looking for vulnerable travellers to run off the road with our weaponised vehicles as part of a desperate struggle to survive.

“Which is what you will be doing in a few years’ time.”

A Trump insider said: “We are thinking about putting up a sign that says ‘X Factor auditions this way..’ and when the hopeful singers walk out on stage they’ll be singing at the inauguration. That could be seen as underhanded, which it is and you’d better get used to it.

“Either that or we’ll just get Metallica.”
