Blake Shelton Insists He Has NOT Endorsed Trump


The Voice coach and country star Blake Shelton got his dander up today when a gossip website attempted to spin his comments to Billboard in a recent cover story into an endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The Gossip Cop item interpreted a compliment Blake paid to Trump into an endorsement of the candidate:

“In country music, we’re so politically correct and so afraid to possibly upset someone,” he says, which led to him being asked if he “supports” Trump. The singer responds, “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.”

Shelton continues. “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 does confirm he plans to vote in November, reportedly adding, “I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.” Shelton hasn’t really mentioned Trump on social media, but did tweet earlier this week about the DNC email leak, and seemed to rejoice when Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down.

Blake ranted on twitter:

Smash actress and Clinton supporter Deborah Messing apologized for tweeting ” “Omg. How? @gwenstefani please talk to your man to not vote for the person who will STRIP you of your right.”
