The bassist/third member of Nirvana praised Trump for the speech he delivered after having a crowd of peaceful protesters tear gassed so he could get a good photo-op (which is impossible because there are and never will be good photos of him).
Novoselic posted the following to his Facebook: "Wow!!! I know many of you can’t stand him, however, Trump knocked it out of the park with this speech

I did not see any violence -- but a Tesla supercharging station at an Auburn mall was closed off by police. Driving, I passed by regular folks who are already stressed by the Covid situation. Now, social media and television are looping images of societal breakdown. I agree, the president should not be sending troops into states -- and he legally might not be able to anyway -- nevertheless, his tone in this speech is strong and direct

If this were the case, left wing people would welcome federal intervention. Most Americans want peace in their communities and President Trump spoke to this desire. Never mind the legal details that few understand -- Trump said he would stop the violence and this speaks to many
As people commented on his post, he assured them he was “not a parody account — and certainly not a partisan echo chamber. I prefer to think for myself thank you.”
He revealed that he voted for Gary Johnson in the 2016 election.
His Facebook is now currently private, and he deleted his Twitter account.source
