Music world reacts to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s second Presidential debate

Katy Perry and other stars share their thoughts

The second US Presidential town hall debate took place last night (Sunday, October 9) with Hillary Clinton again going up against Donald Trump. The music world has been posting its reactions to Twitter.

Last week had seen increased criticism directed at Republican candidate Trump over historic comments he made about groping women.

During the debate, Katy Perry took to Twitter to urge Clinton not to shake Trump’s hand, while Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx urged Trump to “make a point rather than sniffle and point”.


“Donald is a Savage,” wrote At The Drive-In/The Mars Volta’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala. “I’m not pro trump but fuck he’s a savage.”

Shura went on to point out how “Trump constantly refers to Hilary as her or she and then refers to himself in the third person”.
