Mary J. Blige on Trump: “He Speaks About Women Viciously And He’s Just…Racist”

R&B veteran Mary J. Blige attended the nation’s 45th president at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. The Queen of Hip Hop-Soul was on hand to promote the film, Mudbound, which she co-stars in, and during a Q&A session, she voiced her opinion about Donald Trump.

“I just really can’t support this, it is what it is,” the Grammy-winning singer said of President Trump as she spoke onstage at the festival. “He speaks about women viciously and he’s just…racist. It makes me emotional, I haven’t been this emotional all day.”

Blige is making a stand for women, who took to the streets on Saturday following Trump’s inauguration on Friday for the Woman’s March, a movement in support of women’s rights.

“My hopes are that this brings us together as people, period,” Blige says of the march. “Not as black people…but as people, and understand that the only thing that’s going to make anything change is for us to love each other.”
