It didn’t come quite as a surprise when John Legend voiced his opinions about Trump, especially since in the past he disapproved of the President’s #MuslimBan.
But, Legend’s criticism has gone to a whole new level at the TIME 100 Gala (April 25), celebrating his recognition for being named a Most Influential Person.
While on the red carper, Legend told reporters:
“I think he’s a terrible president. He’s manifestly unqualified, not curious, not good at legislating or doing anything that his job requires. He doesn’t have any depth about any subject. And he’s also using the office of the presidency as a way to make money for himself with his businesses, so he’s corrupt. I can’t say anything nice about the guy. I think he’s one of the worst people I’ve ever encountered in public life.”

Well, Legend definitely didn’t hold back.
