John Legend will drag your name all across the red carpet if he feels you’re a President not doing your job right. The singer, who has not been shy about taking shots at Donald Trump, positively ethered 45 during the Time 100 gala, saying out loud what the rest of us have been thinking.

Before Legend’s performance at the gala honoring impactful figures, the singer hit the red carpet and responded to a question about President Trump.

“I think he’s a terrible president,” he said without hesitation. He continued, “He’s manifestly unqualified, not curious, not good at legislating or doing anything that his job requires. He doesn’t have any depth about any subject. And he’s also using the office of the presidency as a way to make money for himself for his businesses, so he’s corrupt. I can’t say anything nice about the guy, I think he’s one of the worst people I’ve ever encountered in public life.” You can watch his commentary for yourself below.

It’s safe to say the surrounding guests felt that rug burn of a drag.

Legend isn’t shy about talking politics. He and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have consistently spoken out against Trump, often with humor.

But their message is dead serious. Legend has rebuked Trump in various interviews and at one point said, “We’re going through a period where Donald Trump has promised to make us a less just and less free country, and those who believe in justice and freedom are going to have to stand up for it.”

Later in January he built his PGA Awards speech around denouncing the Trump administration’s travel ban. “Our vision of America is directly antithetical to that of President Trump,” he said. “I want to specifically tonight reject his vision and affirm that America has to be better than that.” You can watch some of his words below.

    The orange hitler deserves the same amount of respect he gave Mr. Obama. For years he did all he could do to disrespect and dishonor him at every turn. It’ ok for him to dislike Mr. Obama not everyone felt as warm and fuzzy about him as some others. However, to say the things he said and continue to not only delegitimize him but also to dehumanize him, is way over the top. Say what you want, trump not only deserves, he well-earned all the foul and disgusting names people hurl in his direction. He is unfit and incompetent to say the least at being the president of the free world. His sole purpose is to further his own agenda and not the agenda of the good tax paying American citizens.

  3. Mr. Legend summed it up better than I’ve heard anyone express an opinion of Mr. Trump. AND, without uttering one profane, nasty word or name calling. Now that’s the way to get a point across. Class act all the way.

  4. Kudo’s to John Legend for telling it like it is!!!!!!
    Chump is a TURD-you can’t polish up a turd-it is what it is!!!!!!!!!

      Me either. Unless he apologize for trying to delegitimize prez Obama. Apologize for saying the central park five are still guilty. And just apologize for being a dumb ass prez. Then and only then, I may give him a tiny bit of respeck. But that will never happen and I will never respect him as a prez.

  6. Damn John, those are my exact sentiments. I’ve been beating the same drum since election night. It’s disgusting this person is called prez
