Clay Aiken Just Broke The Internet with His Response To Trump’s Charlottesville Presser

by Brian Tyler Cohen

On the heels of Trump’s unhinged, impromptu press conference in which he yet again failed to condemn the white supremacists and neo-Nazis at this weekend’s rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Clay Aiken, runner-up on season two of American Idol and a contestant on The Apprentice, tempered his past praise of the President.

Aiken has always been measured in his criticism of Trump. During the campaign, he said, “I kind of feel like we’d be better served to let people see what he’s going to do or not do.” He even admitted that his mother would be voting for Trump in the 2016 election….

…The fact that Clay Aiken, who was one of the few celebrities with a more moderate and understanding stance towards the President, issued such a stern condemnation of Trump today is evidence enough that Trump’s abhorrent behavior and racist views are finally catching up with him.

Clay Aiken: Trump is racist, ‘I was a f—ing dumb—’ for defending him

by Abbie Bennett

Singer and former congressional candidate Clay Aiken said on Twitter Tuesday that he felt dumb for defending the president.

Aiken said that he was “a f—ing dumb—” for defending President Donald Trump and believing Trump is “not actually racist.”

“I’ve always thought he would be a dumpster fire as a president, and I was right about that,” Aiken continued in another tweet. “I just didn’t think he was racist. #wrong”

Last month, Aiken said he saw similarities between the Donald Trump he got to know on “Celebrity Apprentice” and Trump’s style as president during a visit to The News & Observer to be a guest on The N&O’s political podcast, Domecast. Aiken, who launched his musical career as a contestant on “American Idol,” ran unsuccessfully for Congress in North Carolina in 2014 as a Democrat.

At that time, while Aiken said opposed many of Trump’s actions as president, he still respected him personally and said he’s a “nice guy.” When Aiken launched his campaign for Congress, he said Trump was the second person he called – after former N.C. Gov. Jim Hunt, his “political idol.”

The website also has a video of Clay speaking at Domecast last month.  You can see the entire article and the video at N&O
