Earlier this week, we reported that the lead singer of The Chicks, which was formerly known as the Dixie Chicks, accused President Donald Trump of murder over the coronavirus pandemic. Now, Natalie Maines is doubling down by saying that she would have a “love fest” with former President George W. Bush because of Trump.
“You know, I joke that today, I might actually make out with George Bush,” Maines said on Tuesday during an interview with “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
“Does the current president make you rethink, at all, your feelings for George W. Bush?” Cohen asked her.
“Yes,” Maines replied. “I mean, I don’t rethink that I didn’t want to go to war, and that weapons of mass destruction were a lie, but yes, it would be a huge love fest if I saw George Bush right now, because of where we’re at with this current president.”
Cohen was referring to the fact that Maines infamously bashed Bush back in 2003 while performing overseas.
“Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all,” she said at the time. “We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
This latest comment about Bush and Trump came one day after Maines accused the current president of murder.
“It is crazy that we have a leader that is— I mean, it’s murder,” Maines said in an interview with Howard Stern. “It’s second-degree murder. He’s not having to physically kill people but his ignoring things and speaking complete lies, retweeting that Chuck Woolery tweet, it’s unbelievable.”
Later on in yesterday’s interview with Cohen, Maines’ fellow The Chicks singer Emily Robison said that she is “just proud of” singer Taylor Swift for ignoring her advisors and being open about her radically leftwing politics.
“You know, she started her career when she was so young that I think she had people that she went to, as kind of a panel, when she was younger,” Robison explained. “So it’s good to see her as she becomes her own woman, questioning these things, and saying, ‘No, I really do want to talk about it.’”
“So she was told not to be like us,” she added. “That’s not news to us either, but, I don’t know, I’m proud of her.”
