'Would you want me driving your car?'
Stevie Wonder has delivered a brilliant, hilarious and acerbic put-down of Donald Trump – with the blind musician comparing the Apprentice star becoming President to letting him behind the wheel of a car.
As America prepares to go to the polls today to choose between Trump and Republican candidate Hillary Clinton, the ‘Superstition’ icon gave an interview with Philly.com.
“If you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?” he asked, to which the reporter replied “no” – before Wonder added :Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?”
He continued: “So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation.”
Wonder added: “This is not a reality show. This is life in reality. So I’m with her because I believe in where we are, and where we are going to go. I have always believed that America is great. We’re just going to make it greater.”
While Lady Gaga came under fire from those who confused her outfit for that of a Nazi, last night also saw Bruce Springsteen come up in support of Hillary Clinton to play at hit-packed set at her rally while slamming Trump.
The ‘Born In The USA’ blasted him as “a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, who has the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interest and ego before American democracy itself. Someone who’d look to damage our long-cherished and admired system, rather than look to himself for the reasons beyond his own epic failure. That’s unforgivable. Tomorrow those ideas and that campaign is going down.”
