Steve ‘Foreclosure King’ Mnuchin is Downed in Twittersphere by Axl Rose Colored Replies

The year is 2020. Amidst a global pandemic, Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose says the Secretary of the Treasury and producer of Wonder Woman is “officially an asshole.” In response, the Executive Producer of the Lego Movie asks what Rose has done for his country with the flag of Liberia.

Mnuchin Spars with Guns n Roses front man Axl Rose  on Twitter

Axl Rose, the lead singer of U.S. rock band Guns N’ Roses, and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have engaged in an escalating social-media exchange that’s gone viral.

With no context to explain the insult, the singer initiated the back-and-forth by using a vulgar epithet to describe Mnuchin in a post on his verified Twitter account. Mnuchin, who has played a key role in assembling the U.S. economic response to the coronavirus, then commented by asking what Rose had done to help the U.S.

Mnuchin’s response from his verified Twitter account:

Rose has recently tweeted about the importance of lockdowns to contain the coronavirus, and a subsequent retort to Mnuchin’s question suggested this might have been one of his issues with the Treasury chief.

In his second tweet, Rose indicated criticism of officials with public responsibility advocating travel. Earlier this week, President Donald Trump said “we have to get our country open and we have to get it open soon.”

Tensions between Rose and the administration pre-dated the exchange with Mnuchin. In 2018, the singer highlighted his band’s opposition to playing of Guns N’ Roses music at Trump rallies and events. That usage has continued. A Guns N’ Roses version of the song “Live and Let Die” featured on Trump’s visit to a Honeywell International Inc. plant earlier this week.
