In an interview with The Guardian, a country singer bashed President Donald J. Trump and stood by previous comments that he made bashing Trump’s supporters.
“So I meant that, and I still mean it,” said Jason Isbell. “The whole point of Christianity is to behave as Jesus would have behaved – and Jesus would not have voted for Donald Trump, no matter what his pay was going to do as a result of that.”
Isbell was referring to a Rolling Stone interview in which he said that “God is gone from those people,” referring to Christian Trump supporters who like the President because of his sound economic policies.
The country singer has become a Democrat activist, playing at rallies for Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat who is now running for a Senate seat.
It appears that Isbell is unaware of what Democrats are teaching our children in school, like transgenderism at age five, or how to orgasm at age 14. Maybe Jesus would have voted for that instead of Trump, but mere mortals should perhaps hold their tongues when considering speaking on behalf of the Lord.
Isbell had some harsh words for his critics, too, calling them “stupid.”
“Phil’s ahead by two points in that race right now,” he said. “I’m not going to say that that had anything to do with that, but there might have been a few people who thought: ‘OK, well if these people are stupid enough to call this recovering addict, whose pretty much probably too preachy in all honesty, if they are going to call him unhinged, then they don’t have any idea what people are thinking.’”
