Gene Simmons of KISS visits White House, Pentagon


Gene Simmons of the band KISS visited the White House on Thursday — but it wasn’t clear if the wrinkled rocker was meeting with President Trump.

“Just another Thursday at the White House. ⁦@genesimmons⁩ is here. Said he’s visiting his ‘favorite secret service agent’ but did not answer ⁦q if he’s meeting with ⁦@realDonaldTrump,” tweeted CBS News producer Katiana Krawchenko, along with a video showing Simmons, clad in black leather pants and jacket, strolling on the grounds towards the north entrance with an unidentified woman.

Earlier, Simmons was at the Pentagon, where he thanked the troops.

“As tensions between Iran and the United States increase in the Middle East, the Pentagon briefing room is being used to host Gene Simmons of Kiss,” tweeted Reuters reporter Idrees Ali.
