'I haven't [endorsed] ANYBODY for president. And I not going to,' he tweeted
Blake Shelton hasn’t officially endorsed a presidential candidate, but after comments he made in a recent interview with Billboard suggested that the country star was in favor of Donald Trump, he took to Twitter to refute the sentiment: “Hey before this gets going like it always does… I haven’t [endorsed] ANYBODY for president. And I not going to. I don’t do that [s—],” he tweeted.
Shelton had originally told the magazine, “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?” He added, “I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.”
In his response he continued, “My comment about ‘wish there was another option but there’s not’ is across the board…period. Now go dig up another story.”
