Musician John Legend will clearly not be giving Donald Trump his vote. When Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., expressed his confusion as to what the demonstrators at a Chicago campaign rally for his father were protesting, the Grammy Award-winning artist took to Twitter to reveal his sentiments saying, “I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated.”

Of course, the backlash was nearly instant with a staunch Trump supporter firing back, Legend has “no education,” which was extremely ironic considering they all graduated from the same college, the University of Pennsylvania.

Legend made the comment in an exchange with Trump, Jr. in reference to Friday [March 11] night’s melee between Trump demonstrators and supporters at the Chicago campaign rally, which was shut down after security concerns.


Trump Jr. responded to Legend’s comment with, “Here we go again. That can’t be the answer for everything you don’t like. That’s why the country is so divided.”

“No,” Legend replied. “It’s just the answer when racist racists are saying racist s—t and are endorsed by the KKK,” an apparent reference to Ku Klux Klan members, who have shown up in droves at Trump rallies to endorse his candidacy.
