Now that Donald Trump looks to be the GOP front runner for president, Trump has seemingly left behind all of the normalcy of his past life. That is, according to longtime pal Russell Simmons. Simmons, much like everyone else who isn’t a closet bigot, is not down with Trump’s latest stance. And he decided, in the spirit of friendship, to give him a piece of his mind, publicy.
Over 30 plus years you have been an amazing friend; endorsing my books, coming to my shows, flying me on your planes, your helicopters, and even allowing my family members and myself to stay in your house in Florida many times. So, it kinda pains me to know that my public statements about your candidacy have strained or ruined our friendship. However, the fact is, what’s at stake is bigger than us.
My friends, both Muslims and Jews, are saying there are so many comparisons between your rap and Hitler’s, and I cannot disagree with them, Donald.
Stop the bullsh*t. Stop fueling fires of hate. Don’t feed into the rhetoric created by small-minded people. You’re smarter and certainly more loving then you let on. The Republicans in power don’t like you any more than the Democrats in power, as they know you can’t be controlled, because you are your own man. You have been many people’s champ in the past, but now you are becoming a major embarrassment. I know the cheap seats are easy to play to, but you can get them just by being the man I have known for nearly 30 years.
Thoughts on Russell’s statement? While this seems to be the words Trump needs to hear right now, I’m pretty sure he’ll take Russell out to task for the remarks and go about his merry way.
