Country legend Willie Nelson was in Washington, DC to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress. But, many of his fans will probably want him to shut up and stick to singing after hearing his opinions regarding political candidates.
Nelson is known as a liberal, but apparently his views extend over to the socialist side of the Democratic party. Nelson says he likes “everything” about not only Hillary Clinton, but also self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as well.
Nelson appears to be waiting out to see who will be the Democratic nominee, but he’s pleased with both the option of former First Lady Hillary Clinton and socialist Bernie Sanders. “Well, you know, it’s not over yet. I’m still watching the show but I’m a great Bernie and Hillary fan, you know,” Nelson told PJ Media.
The country legend also described President Barack Obama as a friend who he has met several times. Obama previously spoke of people who likely are country fans as clinging to their guns and religion.
Do you think country fans will react negatively to Nelson being supportive of a socialist? Please share your thoughts.
