John Legend is already a pretty awesome guy for a lot of reasons. His music career speaks for itself, what with all those Grammys and incredible performances. Also He’s, by all accounts, a great partner for Chrissy Teigen and about to be a pretty cool father to their daughter.
He is also never shy with his political views, especially when there is a situation that calls for him to stand up for minorities or a discriminated class. That last category is where his latest exploits fall, going toe to toe with Donald Trump. Or at least, one of the Donald Trumps.
After Trump’s latest political rally in Chicago fell apart amidst thousands of protestors letting their voices be head, the presidential candidate’s son decided he wanted to chime in on Twitter. Donald Trump Jr., an apple that didn’t fall far from the tree, tweeted that the protestors didn’t even know why they were protesting. Legend decided to educate him with a simple tweet back.
That’s certainly telling him. The last thing we probably need right now is another Trump saying whatever they want without being fact checked or questioned. After the initial comeback, things only got better. A Trump supporter decided that a good life choice would be to try and hop into the conversation with a personal attack against the singer – calling him uneducated. The bad news is Legend had a pretty great rebuttal there too.
That’s right, both Legend and Trump Jr. attended the University of Pennsylvania. Could be worse. At least the school in question wasn’t Trump University, seeing as neither would have a legitimate degree otherwise. Maybe John Legend should open his own location for higher learning called “Legend University.” It can specialize in degrees in shutting people down on social media with precision.
