During an interview with Joy Reid, Black Eyed Peas co-founder and frontman Will.I.Am got emotional, choking back tears, as he bluntly expressed what makes him sad about the possibility of a Trump presidency.
On AM Joy, Joy Reid asked Will.I.Am what he thinks the biggest fear is among the creative community about a Donald Trump presidency. Will.I.Am became emotional as he expressed how deeply sad Trump’s candidacy has made him, because Trump doesn’t appear to care about anyone but himself.
This is just sad. I don’t— I can’t explain how sad this is. I mean, if you just look at what’s happening. It’s just sad. I love this country. I love all the potentials we have. Why are we even here? Why is this even the conversation? There are so many people that are hurting. So many people that are homeless. So many people in the projects, not knowing— I come from the projects. I was one of those kids that was blessed with an awesome education. So many people just need simple things like an education, and a leader that can just hold ground and push it through.
I don’t think he cares about people in the projects. I don’t think he cares about the homeless. I don’t think he cares about Alton Sterling’s mom and Philando Castile’s mom. I don’t think he cares about the people that are hurting in this nation—or the police officers that lost their lives.
I don’t think he cares about anything but himself. And that’s sad.
Yes, yes it is.
