Earlier this month Dolly Parton had to tell the world she’s NOT endorsing HILLARY CLINTON…after simply saying she thought Hillary is “qualified” for the job.
This time, Blake Shelton talked to Billboard recently, and mention that he likes how Donald Trump “says what he thinks” and doesn’t try to be politically correct, but that got spun into Blake endorsing him.
The full quote reads:
“I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here? … I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.”
People freaked out when they thought Shelton was endorsing Trump, and it even got the attention of Debra Messing from “Will & Grace” who dragged Gwen Stefani into the mess according to E! Online.
She hit up social media in a Tweet that has now been deleted begging Gwen to ask her boyfriend to change his mind.
“Omg. How? @gwenstefani please talk to your man to not vote for the person who will STRIP you of your rights”-Debra Messing (@DebraMessing) July 28, 2016
Blake had to nip that in the bud. So he went on social media with the obligatory denial, saying, “Hey, before this gets going like it always does . . . I haven’t [endorsed] ANYBODY for president. And I’m not going to. I don’t do that [crap].”
