Singer and songwriter John Legend claimed without evidence on Sunday that the president of the United States “regularly inspires killers.”
Legend, who along with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, recently headlined a Democrat policy retreat, alleged that President Donald Trump, through his “bigoted policies” and “racist venom,” helped to motivate the domestic terrorist in El Paso, Texas, this past weekend.
“When we condemn the racist venom coming from the president’s mouth and point out the bigotry of his policies, it’s not an academic question, it’s not a political game, it’s about life and death,” said Legend.
“The president regularly inspires killers. He is a part of the problem.”

Actually, a major motivating factor involves brain-dead liberals who constantly stoke racial tensions by claiming the president is a racist.
It’s quite entertaining listening to leftist elites pretend that Trump’s words inspired killers, especially when they: A) ignored Barack Obama’s own encouragement of violence against police officers; and B) have embraced real bigots such as Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan.
In April, Legend and Teigen headlined a three-day Democrat retreat (which sounds like borderline torture, in our opinion), at which they bashed Trump and admitted they had to sometimes use comedy even though “we’re crying inside.”
“We need the comedy to cover up the pain,” Teigen whined. “That’s our ‘ha ha’ as we’re crying inside. It’s laughing through the pain.”
They really left their cards on the table with that one.
Speaking of inspiring violence — Legend has a pretty good track record of his own.
Last year, Legend called on Trump officials to be harassed until the administration’s immigration policies were weakened, an action that those in the resistance party took to heart.
“Reunite all these families immediately and you can go out to eat wherever the f*** you want,” snapped Legend.
Somebody should also remind him that, just hours before the mass shootings occurred this weekend, Legend himself went on an expletive-fueled rant and encouraged people to “get [Trump] out of office.”
“Our president is a flaming racist. He’s a piece of s***,” the lyrical genius went on. “We need to get him out of office.”
“Donald Trump is an evil f***ing canker sore on America’s whole landscape, so we need to get him out of office,” he repeated.
Guess it’s OK to make comments that could be perceived by an unhinged lunatic as a call to action — just as long as it’s a liberal speaking and the actions are directed toward Donald Trump or Republicans.
