A lot of musicians have been very vocal about Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, but for the most part the comments have been far from glowing endorsements. During a show at SXSW, Chuck D of Public Enemy shouted, “Black Lives Matter! Fuck Donald Trump!” Chuck’s bandmate, Flavor Flav, however, doesn’t quite feel the same way about Trump. “I’m not really the politician of the group,” he told Billboard. “There’s a lot of people talking a lot of shit about Trump, but guess what? He’s winning.”
He continued, saying, “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. 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 ended his discussion with Billboard, saying that “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.” Read the whole interview here.
