It seems everyone’s in an uproar over the CMA Award show. The media is going on and on about how Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood “bashed” President Trump, when in all reality they spoke of politics for a total of two minuets, and joked about several people, including Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.
There was one person however, who did bash President Trump, but he wasn’t at the CMAs. Instead, country singer, Sturgill Simpson stood outside of the CMAs playing his guitar, taking donations for ACLU and complaining about guns, gay rights, racism, and our President.
“Nobody needs a machine gun. Coming from a guy who owns quite a few guns. Gay people should have the right to be happy and live their life any way they want to, and get married if they want to, without fearing getting drug down the road on a pickup truck. Black people are probably tired of getting shot in the streets, and getting enslaved by the industrial prison complex, and hegemony and racism is alive and well in Nashville, Tennessee. Thank you very much.”
When asked about our President, he replied:
“He’s a fascist f*cking pig and I’m not afraid to say that because at this point anybody that still supports that guy can’t be anything in my mind other than a ignorant f*cking bigot.”
Still mad about Brad and Carrie’s joke? I wouldn’t be so harsh on the CMA award show. Maybe Simpson’s anti President Trump behavior is the reason he was on the outside of the CMAs, not the inside.

Last night country music artist Sturgill Simpson busked outside Bridgestone Arena during the CMAs, donating the proceeds to the ACLU. Inside at the actual event, there was no mention of gun violence. pic.twitter.com/uaL9o2nIIZ
