John Legend Calls Donald Trump a Racist in Twitter Battle

John Legend Calls Donald Trump a Racist in Twitter Battle

John Legend has called out Donald Trump for being a “racist” in a Twitter battle with the presidential candidate’s son.

Donald Trump Jr. wrote a tweet about the protesters at one of his father’s rally and John replied by saying, “I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated.”

When someone accused John of having no education, he pointed out that he and Donald actually went to the same university!

“Here we go again. That can’t be the answer for everything you don’t like. That’s why the country is so divided now!” Donald Jr. wrote in response to John‘s original tweet.

    John Legend calling people racist lost it’s meaning . Calling people ist’ names to shut down debate not going to work anymore.
    Figures he’s best friends with Kanye.

    As I said in the last post , these are PAID AGITATORS, just like dictators bus in people screaming anti-American crap, burn flags in front of a camera crew.

    “They don’t know what they’re protesting, they are PAID THUGS by groups like left-wing billionaire George Soros. They are PAID to AGITATE American society.
    Before this they were “ANTI-WAR” protesters that disappeared with Obama’s Presidency, while 2009 he sends thousands of more troops to Afghanistan, 2011 he starts illegally bombing Libya. Then it was “OCCUPY WALLSTREET ” that got dropped once democrats protected Wallstreet /
    Banks instead of prosecuting them. Now it’s “BLACKLIVESMATTER” and next some illegal migrants advocacy, Left-wing groups and him have already started organizing $ funding”.

    If calling mexicans rapists and supporting the KKK doesn’t classify as racism to others than I don’t know what does. People for whatever reason get so uncomfortable with the word and want to shield their eyes when racism is taking place and you can’t. This is how bigotry happens and continues to thrive in our society. Hell, it’s happening RIGHT NOW and there’s still denial.

  • JC

    John Legend has no interest in making anybody else’s life better.. pfft… who cares what he thinks. It’s easy to sit on your butt & call others racists from the comfort of your home where you are your only concern. Stick your neck out there on your own dime trying to improve the economy for all black, orange, white, etc lives & then others might actually care what you think.

  • Arx

    Here come the republicans calling John Legend a nigger and any other offensive word they can come up with. Anyone defying Lord Trump shall be punished and labeled.

  • Sim

    Again just lies to instigate, didn’t call Mexcians rapists, something called context.

    Obama, Hillary gets support from groups like anti white, anti Jew Nation of Islam and Black Panters or separatist movement La Raza, want to annex parts of America back to Mexico.

    The media doesn’t define Obama by groups who support him that he says he has nothing to do with.

    Even his Paster of 20 years screaming anti America, anti white crap fir sermons , CIA invented AIDS to kill blacks, 911 was deserved and more terrorists attacks should happen..list is very long.

  • JC

    Umm… did you even read what happened about this? Just because David Duke (a KKK dude) said he supports Trump does not make Trump a supporter of the KKK. When asked about him, Trump just said he didn’t know the guy & wasn’t going to acknowledge Duke’s association with the KKK since he never met him & didn’t know who he was. Trump never once showed any support to the KKK. You all are just twisting this for your own benefit.

    Besides… one of the sex trafficking ring leaders – that steals our girls from the US & sells them to bad, bad men in foreign countries & makes TONS of money doing so – said he was supporting Bernie Sanders. Does that make Sanders a supporter of sex trafficking & child abduction? I think not.

  • Sim

    What???
    Why don’t grow a brain and realize that the reason lefty groups started “BLACKLIVESMATTER” to keep blacks on democrat plantation.
    For the last 8 years, the President U.S, most powerful person in the world …. is black,
    the Attonery General……black, highest law in the nation, HomesLand Security Head is…. .. black
    Still the ” system is against” them lol

    Instead wondering why after 8 years of Obama , black youth unemployment is 58% , or why Americans haven’t seen raise in a decade, but unemployment supposedly 4.9% , why their wealth has declined, why they have no bargaining power as workers.. massive and constant illegal & legal immigration undermining them.
    Or why urban areas crime is way up, not down, why black youths going to jail more not less…
    But keep harping on cops.. Because once cops leave urban areas , Chicago is what you have to look forward to, the most segregated city in the country and 98% all crime in black areas, more dying then a a war zone .

  • gilmore

    Dude, if you wanna support him and his hatred just say so. There’s video of him saying it no one is making this shit up for fun.

  • Dimme

    Dude, if you want to live in a made up world, anyone that disagrees with the left’s agenda is made into a evil cartoon to feel righteous then do. Banana Republic countries do that to their opposition too, that’s how they stay in power. What America is becoming a Banada Republic, there’s a reason why the rich get richer under Obama and the middle class is dying.

    Of course Trump is racist. He’s also an asshole!

  • Will

    Hey John your wife posted a photo a while back of your hands around her neck and she looked terrified (I guess these two find domestic violence and or rape funny) she quickly deleted it because of the criticism but it ‘s out there. So your opinion means nothing on any serious subjects.

  • Dimme

    41 of the 50 most dangerous cities in the world reported just last last month are in Latin America.
    America citzen have no border, border agents aren’t monitoring it, the crimal aren’t getting deported.
    So basicly it’s open season on American citizens and if they complain they’re racist, bigots,etc.

  • Ariana

    He and his wife are fckng idiots. They have some nerve calling Trump a racist when they say racist things about white singerrs such as Taylor Swift all the time.

  • Von

    We get it JJ you’re putting your thump on the scale.
    The sites petty use of using Trump pictures always when his face in speaking motion is getting tired.

    Have some principals and impartiality .

  • Curt Noydb

    John should know. he is a racist. Look at his off mike comments

  • Conte435

    John’s Legend is the pot calling the kettle black

  • Arx

    Thats not racism you dumb fuck.

  • Ariana

    Yes that is! Why do they only mock artists who are white? That is racism! He and his stupid wife have no problem hanging around Kanye and Kim, who are not white and have no talent either! You are the dumb fck. Go fck a Kardashian moron!

  • Lili

    This is Germany in 1931. Funny things is why is there so many racists in a land of immigrants ?????

  • Lili

    Are you off your meds ?
    Man, if you are poor you should blame yourself not Obama.

  • Tommi

    Europe’s about tear they whole Union apart after one year of mass econmic migrants and refugees into the continent.
    The US public has dealt with a decade & half of millions of illegals into the US. That doesn’t included millions the government flies in, without telling Americams the true numbers.
    Now they saying enough is enough, so they have be maligned by the media, democrats and powerful well funded groups, like businesses who want a steady flow of cheap labour

  • Lenny

    Telling that President Obama was a State Senator in Chicago for 14 years.

  • Lenny

    Are able to comprehen English, the person never made personal reference. Your comment doesn’t even make sense.

  • Dee

    I mean, his father was a clan member…..

  • Arx

    Why does Taylor only hang with white people. I guess that means she’s racist too.

  • Ariana

    LOL nice try retard but Taylow Swift isn’t racist because she doesn’t hang around scumbags like the Kardashians and Kanye West and married idiots like Chrissy Teigan!

  • Arx

    But Chrissy Teigan is a racist because she doesn’t like Taylor Swift? That doesn’t make sense. You cant all Chrissy a racist and not call Taylor a racist too. All Taylors “girl gang” are white…

  • Kaitlyn

    Oh please. I don’t support Trump, but it’s people like you with your reactionary perspective that is causing the divide among Americans. Trumps message isn’t Whites vs Minorities, it’s Americans vs Other.

    Quit trying to pretend you’re more ‘enlightened’ than anyone else because you are creating a picture to support your perspective rather than one that evaluates all sides. Because that is the very definition of bigotry.

  • Ariana

    Fck off you idiot! Taylor Swift doesn’t go around attacking black artists, she doesn’t say idiotic things for attention or post racist stuff online like John Legends stupid and brainless wife does! That is infact racist! Go fck a Kardahsian seriously.

  • Ariana

    Hilary’s mentor in politics was a Klan member too.

  • Ariana

    And the poor have become poorer. He made turn America into the 30s again.

  • Ariana

    His stupid wife also puts racist crap on twitter and open insults white artists who win over black ones like Taylor Swift, Beck,etc.

  • Ariana

    Show proof of TS being racist then. Go ahead and prove it. I can pull out tons of things John and his brainless wife have said/done/posted online.

  • Arx

    Ok prove it! Show me where John Legend says all white people are worthless. Show me proof of Chrissy Teigan saying african americans are the superior race. Id love to see how that couple hate all white people.

  • Arx

    Taylor hangs out with rich white girls who kiss her ass.

  • Camila C.S. Oliveira

    I’m from a Banana Republic and you’re absolutely right.

  • Dee

    who was that?

    Robert Byrd. Senator of West Virginia. Google him up and you be will be shocked. BTW he was a Democrat.

  • Ariana

    And John Legand and his ugly dumb wife only hang around trashy racist blacks like Kanye and his mixed race wife.

  • Ariana

    LOL not until you show me first. Bitch.

  • Dee

    I looked him up. She called him a mentor while eulogizing him. I’ve seen nothing of a history of them knowing each other before she was in the senate (maybe back when she was a first lady). He was out of the klan by 1952 and regretted it. Maybe theres more too it, but Trumps father being a klan member and having a history of the same type of allegations of racism in renting/ selling property to non-whites (among other issues…) compared to Hillary saying nice things in a eulogy for a repentant ex-klan member are very different.

  • Arx

    I don’t actually think Taylor is racist tho. I’m applying your delusional logic to Taylor Swift. You’re dumb as fuck so ill give you some definitions.
    Racism – poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race or the belief that some races of people are better than others
    John Legend and his wife are not racist. You’re delusional and hateful and you’re going to hell. #facts

  • Arx

    who you hang out with doesn’t make u racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are so consumed with hatred for black people its unreal!!!!! Not all black people are racist! I cant deal with you! Go back to the Tramp rally. All hail Lord Trump!

  • b324

    LMAO. Cheap labor isn’t being utilized by democrats. Why don’t you talk to all the right-wing nutjob politicians who tried to pass racist immigration reform and then gave it up after being found to employ illegal immigrants. And also finding out that the republican companies that line their dirty greedy pockets don’t want to give up their cheap slave labor.

    And you do realize that many of the illegal immigrants who are “making this country dirty” like so many of you ignorant racists applaud …are white .. speak English .. and don’t come from Mexico.

    That’s how you can weed out ignorant racists. They don’t realize illegals come in all colors.

    I wish there was a cure for your kind of stupid.

  • b324

    But wait, I thought America was unsafe and dangerous because of black thugs. Oh wait, I thought it was because of democrats wanting to take away our guns. Oh wait, I thought it was Syrian refugees. Oh wait, I thought it was Muslims. Oh wait, I thought it was …..

    I guess it depends on the day and which bigoted racist group you want to appease.

  • b324

    Donald Trump boasts he’s going to bomb the shit out of the Middle East. And he’s supporters cheer.

    Donald Trump calls all Mexicans drug lords and rapists. And his supporters cheer.

    Donald Trump brags he could blow someone’s brains out on 5th Avenue and not lose votes. And his supporters cheer.

    Donald Trump triumphs he can take out ISIS, but runs with his tail between his legs over Americans exercising their first amendment. And his supporters cheer.

    Donald Trump supporters have been beating the ever living crap out of protesters all over this country. And Donald Trump cheers.

    And this is the fuhrer’s master plan to make America great again.

    BUT I DIDN’T EVEN GET TO THE BEST PART …

    Someone calls out Donald Trump for being a racist douchebag. And his supporters call him uneducated.

    Oh the hilarious irony.
