Clay Aiken Apologizes for Defending ‘Actually Racist’ Donald Trump

by Lars Brandle

Clay Aiken, the American Idol alum who turned his back on a pop career for a run at politics, has had a change of heart on President Trump.

In light of Trump’s contested claim that “both sides” were at fault for the violence during a recent protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, Aiken fired off a tweet Tuesday night in which he unequivocally pulled any shred of support for Trump, who he inferred to as “actually racist.”…

It’s something of a U-turn for Aiken, a North Carolina Democrat who kept a close eye on Trump through his controversial election campaign and correctly (and reluctantly) predicted he’d win. Many casual observers figured Aiken was a fan, which he denies.

As a contestant on NBC’s The Apprentice, Aiken had a ringside seat observing then-host Trump calling the shots. Reality TV and the real thing aren’t the same thing. In his latest tweet, Aiken called himself a “f*****g dumbass” for good measure, and made sure to copy Trump’s Twitter handle.

Aiken’s Twitter thumbs were smoking overnight as he blasted the pres with a string of messages. “TBC… I’ve always thought he would be a dumpster fire as a president, and I was right about that. I just didn’t think he was racist. #wrong,” he wrote.

And in a response to a comment from another Twitter user, he wrote, “My party is the Democrats. I didn’t vote for the idiot. Never ever implied that I did or would. Was VERY vocal about not voting for him.” In others, he set the record straight for those who assumed he was a “Trump supporter.”

Clay Aiken Apologizes for Defending Donald Trump

Clay Aiken is issuing an public apology after defending Donald Trump amid reactions to his recent press conference placing blame on “alt-right” and “alt-left” and defending neo-Nazis at the Charlottesville protests.

“Remember all those times I defended @realDonaldTrump and believed he was not actually racist? Well… I am a f*****g dumbass. #imsorry,” Clay posted on Twitter.

Later, he clarified, “TBC… I’ve always thought he would be a dumpster fire as a president, and I was right about that. I just didn’t think he was racist. #wrong.”

“Bitch, please! If you think I have EVER been a “Trump supporter” you’re as crazy as he is. #payattention….My party is the Democrats. I didn’t vote for the idiot. Never ever implied that I did or would. Was VERY vocal about not voting for him,” he added, indicating he voted for Hillary Clinton.

Clay appeared on Trump‘s reality show Celebrity Apprentice years ago.

Clay Aiken Apologizes For Defending Trump: ‘I Am A F*****g Dumbass’

Former “Celebrity Apprentice” candidate issues a mea culpa.

by Ed Mazza

Former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Clay Aiken backed Hillary Clinton last year, but he also defended Donald Trump against the accusations of racism that dogged his presidential campaign.

“I don’t think he’s a fascist. I don’t think he’s a racist,” Aiken told Fox Business last year.

Now, he’s taking it all back.

Hours after Tuesday’s news conference where Trump blamed “both sides” for white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Aiken tweeted:

Remember all those times I defended @realDonaldTrump and believed he was not actually racist? Well… I am a f*****g dumbass. #imsorry

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.
