The famously outspoken singer has criticised both Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, says that Bernie Sanders is America’s only hope
Morrissey took to his semi-official website True To You last night to comment on the current state of affairs in his adopted home country, the USA. Moz’s letter speaks out against the two presidential frontrunners, Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, and goes on to criticise mainstream media outlets such as Fox and CNN for their coverage of the electoral process and the recent shootings that took place in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Flordia.
“Ballot papers for 2016 should include a ‘no confidence in either nominee’ box, and it is this box that would collect the most votes.” He wrote on the website, “Clinton and Thump may be popular with the party faithful – but the party faithful aren’t that large, and are not America, therefore a sad day looms in November – a day that only Bernie Sanders could have saved – had he been allowed his rightful share of media support. But, clearly, the presidential election really is none of your business. Did you ever seriously think it was?”
Morrissey also took the time to reflect on the recent shootings in Orlando nightclub Pulse saying that, “Although the gunman who massacred 49 people at an Orlando gay club is said to have been ‘repulsed’ by homosexuality, he nonetheless left behind a slew of self-adoring ‘selfies’; a handsome man gazing enchantedly at his own face. It is therefore acceptable for him to lovingly admire his own maleness, but it is not OK for other men to like other men. Does Islamic scripture say it is fitting for a man to sit alone taking adoring photographs of himself? I doubt it.”
The letter ends in praise of Bernie Sanders saying that “a sad day looms in November – a day that only Bernie Sanders could have saved – had he been allowed his rightful share of media support.” The note even features the famous viral video of a bird landing on the candidate’s podium.
