Guitarist Tom Morello made it clear in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he thinks Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is a “jacka**.”

These remarks came after Ryan said he was a fan of Morello’s band, Rage Against the Machine. Morello, along with countless other celebrity performers have voiced their opposition to the GOP ticket.

The Huffington Post reports:

Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello already told Paul Ryan that he’s “the embodiment of the machine our music rages against,” and now the guitarist has simplified his view on the vice-presidential candidate.

In a red carpet interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Morello offered this take on Mitt Romney’s running mate: “Paul Ryan was a jackass before he listened to [Rage Against the Machine], came out a jackass at the end, so he missed a lot of it.”
