Rihanna Just Called Trump "The Most Mentally Ill Human Being In America" In A New Interview
"We’re talking about politics now. You might want to bring another [round of Champagne]."
Rihanna is Vogue's November cover star, and in a new interview with the magazine, the singer/designer/businesswoman did not hold back when it came to talking politics.
Her most pointed words were aimed at President Trump, who she called "the most mentally ill human being in America right now" when asked about the August mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
"People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal. And the fact that it's classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It's a slap in the face. It's completely racist," she said.
She also lambasted the president for addressing gun violence as a mental health issue:
"Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem. The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president."
