John Legend Fires Off A Long List Of Reasons Trump Is A ‘Terrible President’
John Legend doesn’t hold back when people ask for his opinion of the president.
The singer attended the TIME 100 gala in New York City Tuesday night and he had a response ready when reporters asked him what he thought of Trump’s first 100 days in office.
“I think he’s a terrible president,” Legend began before rattling off a long lists of reasons why he thought so.
“He’s manifestly unqualified, not curious, not good at legislating or doing anything that his job requires,” the singer began. “He doesn’t have any depth about any subject. And he’s also using the office of the presidency as a way to make money for himself with his businesses, so he’s corrupt.”
“I can’t say anything nice about the guy. I think he’s one of the worst people I’ve encountered in public life.”
Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen were outspoken supporters of Hillary Clinton during the presidential election and still seem unable to accept the fact that she lost.
The “All of Me” singer was also a strong supporter of President Obama while he was in office and defended his decision to accept a $400,000 paycheck from an investment bank on Wall Street to speak at a health care conference.
“He was never against Wall Street,” Legend explained, he wanted to “regulate Wall Street so that they wouldn’t cheat the American people and they wouldn’t destroy the financial system again.”
“He did that and he can still get paid to show up and speak somewhere.”
