Tommy Lee Threatens to Leave America if Trump Wins: Americans Are 'Embarrassing'
Rocker warns he'll move to Europe and return to his 'motherland' if president re-elected
Rocker Tommy Lee has threatened to leave the United States if President Donald Trump wins re-election in November.
The Mötley Crüe drummer warned he may be forced to move to Europe after the election because Americans are "embarrassing."
Lee, who was once married to Pamela Anderson before he was jailed for beating her, said he will flee to the UK if Trump wins the presidency.
He said he would likely then move to Greece - which he referred to as "my motherland."
The Greece-born musician said he would move to a house on a Greek island is Democrat Joe Biden doesn't win.
Tommy Lee made the anti-Trump threats during an interview with the British publication The Big Issue.
"Dude, I swear to god if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK," Lee warned.
"I’m out of here," he continued.
"I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to go Greece, and get a house on one of the islands,” said Lee, who was born in Greece but raised in the U.S.
"The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing.
"I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f*ck are you guys doing over there?'
"'Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country.'”
"It’s going to be priceless – that kind of energy I’m probably never going to see again in my lifetime." Think you can't wait to go to a gig again? That's nothing on @MrTommyLand https://t.co/BZoP5Wz6zV— The Big Issue (@BigIssue) October 12, 2020
Lee recently gloated when President Trump and First lady Melania announced they had tested positive for COVID-19, calling it “karma.”
"Can you say 'Karma Gods have spoken'?" Lee posted on Twitter when Trump announced his diagnosis.

Last year, Lee reposted a letter aimed at supporters of President Trump.
He warned them that they would face “pay back” if the Democrats win back the White House in 2020.
Left-wing celebrities who promised to leave the U.S. if Trump won in 2016 include Barbra Streisand, Chelsea Handler, Bryan Cranston, Lena Dunham, and the rapper Snoop Dogg.
None of them has kept their word.
