Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar says he’s looking forward to see what President Trump does in office, but lamented that the opposition has gotten “so crazy” that the president hasn’t yet been given the chance to govern.

“I don’t think you can grade him yet, because the poor guy can’t get anything done,” Mr. Hagar, 69, told Rolling Stone in an interview Friday.

“The opposition has become so crazy that they’re not gonna even give him a chance,” he said. “I’d like to see him have a chance. He’s the president of the United States, and without getting any changes he ain’t helping us.

“So maybe he makes some changes that don’t work, and then maybe the next guy will come in and say, ‘That didn’t work, I’ll do it this way,’” he added. “Because I don’t think anybody knows what the f– they’re doing out there right now.”

Mr. Hagar has said he typically likes to avoid discussing politics during interviews, but expressed admiration last year for Mr. Trump’s politically incorrect attitude, Breitbart News reported.

“I’ve never had two less likable candidates in my life,” he said in October. “But I still like the shakeup, that [Mr. Trump] busts people’s balls and says things that are politically incorrect. Amen!”
