John Legend was never a fan of Donald Trump. Now as we approach the 100-day mark of Trump’s presidency, Legend has dealt a cold, hard assessment of the U.S. leader: “huge fail”.
Speaking on the red carpet ahead of his performance at the TIME 100 gala, Legend told reporters Trump was a “terrible president,” “corrupt” and pretty much the worst guy he’d come across. And the singer was just getting started.
“He’s manifestly unqualified, not curious, not good at legislating or really anything the job requires,” the multiple Grammy winner said. “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 with 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.”
Legend, who has ripped Trump on various occasions, can consider himself scratched from the White House Christmas card list. Watch the clip below.
