Stevie Wonder has made clear just how strongly he feels about the prospect of a Trump presidency.

The blind soul legend compared the Republican candidate’s ability to run the USA to his ability to drive a car, in a recent interview.

Just in case you were in any doubt.

Wonder is an enthusiastic Hillary supporter and recently performed at a “Get Out The Vote” concert for Democratic presidential candidate in Philadelphia.

In a Q&A with philly.com after the concert, Stevie spelt out exactly what he felt the prospect of Trump in the Oval Office meant for his country.

He said: “My youngest child is one year old. She is a junior millennial. So I’m looking at the future. And I’ll give you a point of reference. As much as you have great love for me and you think I’m funny and la la la la la and I make you laugh and all that, if you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?

When the interviewer politely suggested that Wonder would not top the list of ideal designated drivers, he added: “Exactly. Because I’m not an experienced driver, right? So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment.

“Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation”.

Okay Stevie, point made.
