PJ Morton said he would rather have George W. Bush as president than Donald Trump, the Maroon 5 keyboardist and R&B musician told CNN in an interview.
“I think this is the first time we’ve had a president and even a candidate to, you know, call Mexicans rapists, to say the judge wasn’t able to properly do his job because he’s Mexican, asking black people what do they have to lose … who would have ever thought it would make Bush not be so bad?” he told CNN.
“We’d take President (George W.) Bush in a minute right now,” Morton said.
“As crazy as things seemed to be, (Bush) was still a level-headed person who seemed to care and if he didn’t care and if he had a racist bone in his body or something like that, it wasn’t OK to show that. He wasn’t overt.”
Morton said he was left dumbfounded when Trump blamed the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on “both sides.”
“I think (Trump) shows us who he is over and over and we should believe that. … That was him. That was non-reading-teleprompter Trump, and that’s our guy.”
