Stevie Wonder ended his performance at the Global Citizens Music Festival in NYC last night by taking a knee in protest of President
SexistEgotisticalLyingHypocriticalBigot Trump‘s condemnation of pro sports players protesting injustice during games. But Stevie’s other knee joined the first one in prayer for everybody!
Billboard reports that Stevie finished his set in Central Park and was helped to the front of the stage by his son Kwame. That’s when knees touched stage and Stevie spoke for the majority of us.
“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America,” 67-year-old Wonder declared as he knelt down. “But not just one knee. Both knees. Both knees, in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world and our globe. Amen.”
Amen indeed. To recap, Trump blasted players like former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick for staging peaceful protests during games at an ego-massage rally in Alabama on Friday night. He’s since been told to sit his wig down by the pro sports industry (even by his pal, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft). The controversy has almost eclipsed that plastic girl probably birthing a kewpie doll in the near future! Work harder, Kris Jenner!
Trump expressed his belief that “when someone disrespects our flag,” the owner of that player’s NFL team should make sure “the son of a bitch” is fired. You know that he wasn’t talking about his pal Tom Brady. Trump also recommended that, when someone protests on the field, the entire stadium should just up and leave.
“The only thing you could do better is if you see it, even if it’s just one player, leave the stadium. I guarantee things will stop. Things will stop. Just pick up and leave. Pick up and leave. Not the same game anymore.”
Eff no! Do you know how much beers at Gilette Stadium cost? What if I’d already gotten one, sat down, and that Senate candidate who thinks gay sex is comparable to having sex with a cow (how dare he call me that after our brief romance) held a surprise anti-gay rally on the field before the game? Does Trump think beer money just grows on trees? I’d still hang out and roll my eyes at that fool until I’d finished it.
