Clay Aiken Says He Was A ‘F*****g Dumbass’ For Thinking Trump Wasn’t Racist

Former “American Idol” finalist and “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Clay Aiken has never been a fan of Donald Trump the presidential candidate, but even he didn’t think Trump was a fascist and a racist. That’s all changed now, though.

After Donald Trump, who is the supposed moral leader of the United States, refused to condemn white nationalists and Neo-nazis in an insane press conference on Tuesday, Aiken had enough.

After saying a year ago, “I don’t think he’s a fascist. I don’t think he’s a racist,” Aiken had a change of heart.

Aiken is a Democrat and he campaigned for Hillary Clinton. He knew Trump would be a horrible president, but as a person, he gave him the benefit of the doubt.

Aiken, a Democrat who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2014, previously said he liked Trump even though they disagreed about politics. In 2015, Aiken told CNN that he considered Trump to be a friend, but said he’s like “that uncle, who embarrasses the hell out of you sometimes and you still love them, but damn, you wish they’d shut up.”

Twitter being Twitter, those posts became divisive with Aiken being attacked from both the right and the left.

Okay, Aiken might be late in realizing that Trump is racist, but he never supported him. If Aiken had called Trump racist in 2016, Trump would still be in office.

Yes, we are still waiting for those apologies. Aiken may have been naive, but at least he now admits it.
