Superstar musician John Legend has not been shy about criticizing our hate-filled president in the past, so it was only a matter of time before he weighed in on the rhetorical racist marathon Trump has been engaged in for the past few weeks.
In the hopes of inciting the countless racist within the GOP’s voting ranks, the president has insulted and attacked four Congresswomen of color, Civil Rights icon Al Sharpton, and Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD). He even called Baltimore, part of Cummings’s Congressional district “rat and rodent infested,” a phrasing he would never use to describe the constituency of a white politician.
While Trump insists that he’s not racist he has consistently “conveniently” picked nonwhites as the targets of his ire in what can only be interpreted as a wink to his white nationalist fans.

Legend is clearly fed up with Trump’s bigotry. In a new clip from TMZ he calls the president a “flaming racist” and a “piece of sh*t.” The former is undeniable and the latter is hard to argue with.
“We need to focus on making all of our communities better instead of talking shIt about a community just because you’re a racist pr*ck. Donald Trump is an evil f*cking canker sore on America’s whole landscape so we need to get him out of office,” Legend unloaded, clearly furious over Trump’s Baltimore comments.
Legend has put into blunt wording what many of us are feeling at this point. The president is trying to gaslight the entire country by working up his supporters with dog whistles and then turning around and denying that he’s racist. He cannot be allowed to have it both ways.
If Trump succeeds in winning reelection in 2020 it will validate his despicable strategies and encourage future unscrupulous politicians to emulate them. Nothing short of a resounding total electoral rejection of Trumpism will prevent this political cancer from spreading and dividing American even further.
