British punk singer claims he was deported from America 'for impersonating Donald Trump'

The circus continues... Peter from the band 'Peter and the Test Tube Babies' (a British punk band) was not allowed through US customs because of his impersonation of Trump during the German leg of his tour. Apparently border control showed him a video of him dressed as Trump and pretending to smoke a joint. He was duely sent home whilst the rest of the band were allowed through.

This leads to the quesion - is an impersonation really cause to deport someone or prevent them from performing in a festival? They are a punk band, known for mischief and rebellion FFS. I very much doubt that Trump is much into Peter and the Test Tube Babies which leads to the question, ' Who put out the order to stop, question and deport him?' Is this really the worst that America has to worry itself with at border control?

Ridiculous, and just another sign of his weakness and insecurity. It's a wonder he didn't kick the staff of SNL out of the country for impersonating him and some of his staff members,

No way he knew that band. Maybe one of the kids he has running the country. What you get when you throw up your hands and vote for a reality TV "star" with megalomania. This is the stuff he cares about and will spend our money on.

Misleading thread title. The "story" is that customs wouldn't let the guy through and you've twisted that to trump banned him.

There is no way trump even ever heard of this guy, much less had anything to do with "banning him".

I bet 45 saw him on Newsmax, Fox "News" or Breitbart.

Oh, look! Lots of stories in the "liberal" media.

It's not likely that trump saw him on newsmax, fox or breitbart and had him banned. I think trump is an assclown, but, this is just silly.

The singer (who dressed up as Trump) of a touring band is the ONLY one who had the wrong Visa? Right. Trump probably has someone checking his media prescence 24/7. You can hire a service that does that to track if you are missing royalties etc.

If I was to speculate I would think some asshole at customs is going overboard and/or is an idiot.

Maybe, in fact probably, but surely they need a legitimate reason to turn people away and I hardly think an impersonation in Germany makes him a threat. It wasn't like he was going through customs dressed as Trump!

Maybe there really was a problem with his visa. Maybe he's playing up the trump angle for media attention. If so, it worked.

If it were a young and up and coming star then I'd be inclined to agree but this a band who have toured the world for almost four decades. They have a core fanbase and frankly, people outside of that fanbase are unlikely to start giving a shit about them now. I really doubt that the whole band had valid visas apart from the lead singer and, even if that were true, it doesn't explain why border control showed him the video.

I agree that there is more to this story than has been reported but my husband has been a fan of the band for years and they literally have no reason to do this just for media attention. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Trump has his finger on those in the underground punk circuit. He can see this guy is a threat. It is true Spicer and Trump were big GG Allin fans. Spicer was at many of GGs shows but now that Sean is out of the picture Trump is taking action into his own hands using government expenses to follow bands. I wonder if Spicer didn't pay the internet bill?

I don't think Trump is fit to be President but this story seems like it's bullshit. It reads more like "British punk singer nobody has heard of looks for free publicity by bad mouthing American president". And it's worked, which is the sad thing.

You are right (not about the nobody heard of but about the bullshit) - It does now seem he had the wrong visa so I've asked the mods to lockdance
