We constantly see so-called Hollywood liberals trying to blame Trump for anything and everything. Everything is Trump’s fault! Next in line is Bono!
A few years ago U2 lead singer Bono preached about saving the earth at his concert, while about 110 semi trucks all had their engines/generators running for 2 days! Hypocritical right?
Now, the well-known recording artist revealed that he is delaying his next album because he is heartbroken over President Trump.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, U2 lead singer and Bono said: “In truth, there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.”
“You’ve had the same sort of disaffection in the United States with the rise of a new kind of constituency, people on the both left and right who have lost faith in political process, the body politic, in political institutions. These sentiments are easily played and manipulated by the likes of Donald Trump,” said Bono.
“In a world where people feel bullied by their circumstance, sometimes people fall prey to a bully of their own. Lots of people around me, both conservative and liberal, feel that this is one of those defining moments in their life and in the storied life of their country. After the election, some people on the left were almost grieving I’d say and when I try to understand this, I realized there was a kind of mourning, a mourning for innocence that was lost,” said Bono
“For the first time in many years, maybe in our lifetime, the moral arc of the universe, as Dr. King used to call it, was not bending in the direction of fairness, equality, and justice for all,” said Bono.
“The baseness of political debate, the jingoism, the atavistic fervor of Trump’s verbiage reminded us that we were dreaming if we thought evolution applied to consciousness. Democracy is a blip in history and it requires a lot of focus and concentration to keep it intact,” he said.
Make no mistake. If he needed the money the album would be released on schedule. Another out of touch celebrity! Mr. Bono (Paul David Hewson), it is not a loss of innocence, but a loss of the feeling that the majority of people actually were agreeing with them when they took the presidency, house, and Senate in 2008. Now, they are mourning because they realize that people are not fooled by them anymore!
