Aaron Lewis is the lead singer of a group called Staind. The band had a couple of hit songs in the early 2000s. While the band still plays on occasion, Lewis had reinvented himself as a MAGA style performer.
During a show this weekend, the singer went on a long rant hitting on a number of popular Conservative talking points. Lewis even suggested that maybe people should be listening to what Vladimir Putin has to say.
Lewis, at one point, suggested that Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is an attempt to dismantle the Deep State. “So, I’m not gonna go into some big get-myself-in-trouble dissertation. All I’m gonna say is this: question everything. Everything that they’re telling you right now is a lie. Everything.”
Staind frontman Aaron Lewis: “Maybe we should listen to what Vladimir Putin has to say .. Why are (Deep State) trying to protect Ukraine so much? What do they have to lose? .. Putin is fighting the Deep State right now, which is the same people we’re fighting.” pic.twitter.com/vV76O8o9jY

The singer continued:
“You know, as f**ked up as it sounds, maybe we should listen to what Vladimir Putin is saying. Maybe, just maybe, when Klaus Schwab and George Soros and every other dirty f**king earth-destroying motherf**ker all jumps on the same bandwagon, maybe, just maybe we should f**king take a good look at that. Why are they trying to protect Ukraine so much? What do they all have to lose?”
