Public Enemy's Varying Opinions On Donald Trump Tell Me Everything I Need To Know About This Election
Uproxx- According to Billboard, Chuck D took time out of their set to shout down the Republican frontrunner.
“Black Lives Matter! F*ck Donald Trump,” Chuck D told the crowd with an outstretched middle finger. Before the show he called the election a “bizzare show” and added that “the country is in turmoil.”
Flavor Flav had a decidedly different opinion on Trump and he shared it with the magazine after the show.
“There’s a lot of people talking a lot of sh*t about Trump, but guess what? He’s winning. The man is winning. I ain’t gonna lie, but listen, the United States has been ran a certain way for decades and decades and decades. You never know: Maybe Trump could possibly do something. Maybe he might step in office and do something. I’m not going to doubt him,” he said.
Flav also took offense at the GOP’s attempts to block Trump from the nomination.
“Put it this way: If this was really, really a foot race, Donald Trump would be the first one to the finish line, but they won’t let him cross it first… he’s winning fairly, but they still don’t want him to be president. They’re going to try to block that man from being president. If Donald Trump does become president, there’s only one thing we all can do: just sit back and let the man do his job.”
I didn't think that Public Enemy was going to be the group that pretty much exemplified the difference between those that support Donald Trump's candidacy and those that think it's the most preposterous thing that has ever happened in this country, but hey, here we are. Chuck D - the educated, politically aware rapper - thinks that Donald Trump is an asshole, and Flava Flav - the drugged up burn out that did nothing but stand behind him and scream random shit - thinks he's a legitimate candidate. One of the most conscious, accomplished hip hop artists of all time thinks the election is a "bizarre show", and his borderline mentally handicapped hype man - that was somehow the centerpiece of the most cringeworthy reality television show in history - is inexplicably comparing it to a foot race. Really speaks to the difference between the two types of people. For all intents and purposes that is all this election boils down to. If you are voting for Donald Trump you probably need adult supervision, and if you realize that we are better off with literally ANYONE else in office then maybe, JUST MAYBE you aren't a functioning retard. It's a scary, scary time to be alive when we actually have to question whether or not there are more Flava Flav's than Chuck D's. Even the idea of that braindead, absent minded idiot with viking horns on his head and a clock around his neck speaking on behalf of the majority is a sobering thought, and the last thing I need during March Madness is a sobering thought.
God help us all...
