Country singer Kenny Rogers sang GOP frontrunner Donald Trump‘s praises in an interview with The Guardian, telling the British paper that he admired Trump’s ability to say exactly what he was thinking.
“I really like him,” Rogers said. “I think his problem is that he says what everyone wants to hear, but he doesn’t say it well. I love what he says, I have to admit.”
“He can be president and not owe anybody anything; he’s one of the few people has the money to do it, and has the guts to do it. You’re biting off a lot by doing that. He believes everything he says: whether he’s right or not, he says what everybody fears,” he continued.
Rogers did say he was also a friend of Hillary Clinton‘s, while implying he disagreed with her. “She’s a friend of mine, I’m not trashing her,” he said.
