Donald Trump hasn’t been winning many Black supporters outside of former presidential hopeful and famed doctor Ben Carson, thanks to his racist, xenophobic and misogynistic speeches. So it comes as no surprise that yet another Black celebrity, Jussie Smollett, recently spoke out against Trump and explained why he thinks the Republican candidate is the worst person on Earth.
According to media reports, in a recent interview, Smollett discussed the numerous accounts of Black protestors being attacked at Trump rallies and he applauded any Black person brave enough to stand against Trump’s oppressive political stances and supporters.
“I think that they are brave women and men,” Smollett said. “I think that they are soldiers against hate. I think that he is the mogul of hate. That is what I will call him forever. What he has done is capitalized on the fear of this nation.”
Smollett then continued and explained just how much he dislikes Trump and explained how upset he is that Trump is still in the running to receive the Republican nomination and fight for the presidency.
“I think that [Trump] is truly one the worst people that has ever walked the face of this planet,” Smollett continued. “I can’t talk about him without getting heated and I get so emotional about it. I’m so emotional about it because I feel it so deeply. And I’m also ashamed. I’m embarrassed for our nation, that we allowed someone like this to get so far.”
But it’s not just Trump that Smollett takes issue with; it’s Trump’s many supporters, as well, and Smollett took them to task with a scathing critique that also addressed the late Rev. Billy Graham’s alleged prophecy that the Bible foretold Trump’s presidency.
“And for everybody that is supporting Trump: F— are you thinkin’ about? Why the f—?” he passionately asked. “You tell me that somebody can actually come out and say that Billy Graham prophesied over Donald Trump? First of all, the f— do I care? What does that mean to me? So now you’re going to tell me that you’re going to bring God into this situation and you’re going to make it seem like God has chosen Donald Trump. So you in turn are getting a fascist dictator to come into the United States of America, and you’re gonna tell me that this doesn’t feel like the beginning of the Third Reich?”
Well, it doesn’t get any clearer than that. Smollett is certainly not alone.
