Music Icon Bono Just Made A SHOCKING 2016 Announcement! Trump Is…

Bono, the world-famous lead singer for the band U2, is also a outspoken liberal and he has just revealed his thoughts on the upcoming presidential election.

Speaking with CBS News’ Charlie Rose, Bono let it be known that he is no fan of Donald Trump, calling him “potentially the worst idea that ever happened to America.”

Bono’s comments came after the musician rightly observed that “America is like the best idea the world ever came up with” before he tore into the Republican presidential nominee.

From Politico:

Bono pointed to nations like Ireland and Great Britain as great countries but suggested that America is different because it’s an idea, one that Trump is “trying to hijack.”

“That idea is banded up in justice and equality for all — equality and justice for all, you know,” he continued. “I think he’s hijacked the party. I think he’s trying to hijack the idea of America. And I think it’s bigger than all of us. I think it’s — it’s — this is really dangerous.”

Do you think celebrities like Bono should keep their political opinions to themselves? Does America really care what a musician thinks about our presidential election, especially one that wasn’t even born in this country? Share your thoughts with us below!

    Dear headlinepolitics… this is far from shocking.

    Right….so this liberal dick thinks he’s got this all figured out? Bono isn’t even an American so who really cares what he says? He has no skin in this game. He’s not lost any rights or privileges during the Obama administration and he’d get nothing if Hillary won. These people think the world awaits their words of wisdom….NOT! We WERE the greatest nation on earth until liberal dickheads, the people Bono likes, screwed it all up. He’s probably being sent out to talk this BS by the White House..wouldn’t surprise me. Maybe Obama (or Hillary) caught his ear on one of those maginificant jams Obama held in the WH of foreign entertainers who have nothing good to say about real patriot Americans…people they’d never come in contact with at those WH parties. Take a hike, Bono.
