It’s fairly safe to say that the state of Iowa isn’t known for much of anything and that its favourite sons are definitely legendary rock band Slipknot after they really helped put the state on the map by naming their second album after it. Even with that kind of coverage though, I doubt many of us would actually be able to find it on a map.

Anyway, bearing that in mind you can understand why Slipknot fans got pretty angry after Donald Trump suggested that he had done more for the state of Iowa than anyone else. I don’t think his contribution compares even slightly to that of Corey Taylor and his band of masked maniacs, and this view was obviously mirrored by all Slipknot fans, who decided to respond to the news by posting a series of GIFs and roasts on Trump via their Twitter accounts:
If I had to choose between trump’s imagination and Slipknot’s Iowa….yeah, the latter every single time.

@slipknot has done more for Iowa than what Trump has done for the U.S in 4 years.

I can’t believe Slipknot might be fighting Trump about who’s done more for Iowa.

Trump just said fuck everyone who’s sacrificed their life for this country from Iowa, fuck all the engineers, doctors, surgeons, and scientists from Iowa, and FUCK SLIPKNOT https://t.co/786P3BnThr

Donald Trump never named an album after Iowa but Slipknot did. What a fraud

Neither slipknot or trump did anything for iowa.

Lol that last one is funny isn’t it? What a sourpuss.
Anyway, this was a really dumb beef and I’m sure Slipknot themselves have heard about it so maybe this reaction will encourage them to perform a protest outside the White House and rile up all the maggots to sing Trump = shit. I would tune into that.
For more of the same, check out when Slipknot revealed their own brand of whiskey. Perfect.
