Stevie Wonder: “Voting For Trump Is Like Asking Me To Drive”
Along with being a multi-platinum singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder also has jokes. On Friday (Nov. 6) Wonder took the stage in Philadelphia for a free “Get Out And Vote” concert for Democratic Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton. And while Wonder may not be able to see, that hasn’t prohibited him from being able to form his opinion about who he thinks is the best choice for president.
During a sit down with Philly.com’s music critic Dean De Luca, the Songs In The Key of Life artist made a comical, yet, shrewd comparison between his disability and Donald Trump’s ability to lead.
“My youngest child is 1 year old. She is a junior Millennial. So I’m looking at the future. And I’ll give you a point of reference. As much as you have great love for me and you think I’m funny and la la la la la and I make you laugh and all that, if you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?”
“No, you wouldn’t be at the top of my list,” De Luca responded.
While the joke may have placed De Luca (and anyone with home training) on the spot, Wonder–no pun intended–drove home his point home about not being able to get behind the wheel and Trump not being fit to be the Commander In Chief.
“Exactly. Because I’m not an experienced driver, right? So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation.”
Point taken, Mr. Wonder.
