Gene Simmons reminded people like Hillary Clinton, and others who keep forgetting America made their choice and elected President Donald Trump, to respect the “Electoral College.”

“It’s President Trump. Some people like him, some people not. But you have to respect the Electoral College and the people of America, and they duly elected the man,” the 68-year-old rocker said on “Fox and Friends” Thursday after the host asked him his thoughts on immigration. (RELATED: Gene Simmons: Donald Trump Is ‘Good For The Political System’)

“Now by the way for everybody watching Fox News, if you have a point of view and you don’t agree that’s great,” he added.  “Don’t fight with each other. Let’s all be Americans. Next time there’s a vote, vote with your conscience.”

“By the way the founding fathers were smart, you can draw the curtains and it’s nobody’s damn business who you vote for,” he continued. “But in the meantime…”

Fox News host Steve Doocy then asked Simmons, “are you talking to Hillary Clinton, who’s….?”

“I’m talking to anybody,” Simmons answered. “We can argue all you want, but remember the bad guys hate us all. They don’t make a distinction between you and I.”

The comments came about during a discussion about how the lead singer was himself an immigrant with parents who were immigrants from Hungary. He shared how he came here when he was just 8 and half-years-old with his mother, who only a few years before was in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany.
