Axl Rose, the founder and lead singer of Guns N’ Roses, usually reserves his Twitter feed for comments on the band’s tours, but he has made occasional forays into political commentary, usually keeping well within the original 140 character limit, despite the expansion to 280 characters last year.
To give you an example of his sparse social media style, here’s the content of one of his recent tweets in its entirety:
“F*ck Nunes.” (Axl didn’t censor his spelling.)
Today Mr. Rose turned his ire towards the First Daughter on Twitter with a comment that attacked the culture of nepotism that has Ivanka Trump and her husband holding positions of responsibility within the administration, despite the inability of Mr. Kushner to properly obtain a permanent security clearance.
Specifically, Axl commented on Ivanka’s reply to a reporter asking her about the accusations of sexual misconduct levied against her father by at least 19 different women.
“Do you believe your father’s [sexual misconduct] accusers?” –@PeterAlexander
“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it.” –@IvankaTrump pic.twitter.com/23AVPgcOdE

Rose saw Ivanka’s haughty attempt to avoid the question and immediately expressed his opinion on what constitutes inappropriate behavior.
What’s inappropriate is Ivanka Trump being part of the White House Administration.

Spoken like a true opponent of nepotism and royal behavior, Mr. Rose. Well said!
