Dixie Chicks Singer: GOP ‘Hypocrites’ over Trump
Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines calls the GOP hypocrites.
The Hill Reports:
“I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over the country radio! Hypocrites!” Maines tweeted early Thursday.
In March 2003, Maines met with a serious backlash when she spoke out against the Iraq War at a concert in London and said she and her band were “ashamed” of President George W. Bush.
“Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas,” Maines said at the time.
Many country radio stations stopped playing the band’s music after the controversial comment.
On Tuesday, the Republican presidential nominee appeared to joke about “Second Amendment people” stopping his Democratic counterpart.
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said.
“By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he added. “Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
Trump has said he was referring to efforts by defenders of the Second Amendment to stop Clinton from appointing liberal justices through the political process. He has also ripped the media for its interpretation of the remarks.
