John Legend recently voiced what we've all been thinking from the minute Donald Trump opened his mouth to announce his bid for the 2016 Presidential campaign.
John Legend, a notable Grammy award winning musician, made his opinions very clear in a series of tweets this past Friday, calling Trump a "racist."

When asked how he could make such a comment, he just said, "I called the sky blue last night. This is not news." This specific tweet has since been deleted from Legend's feed, but its impact was instant.
The "racist" comment was made in Legend's Twitter exchange with Donald Trump, Jr. following Friday's Chicago campaign rally debacle. Trump Jr. responded, saying, "Here we go again ... That's why the country is so divided."
Trump Jr.'s comment is also referring to the crowds of protesters that are present at nearly every Trump rally. He claims that when the media asked those in attendance at the failed rally why they are there, the "Trump supporters were articulate and the antis could barely speak and had no answers."
Legend again stepped up to the plate and said what those "no answers" antis were thinking: "I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn't complicated."
Trump's supporters have since flocked to their candidate's aid, hounding Legend's Twitter page with comments saying that he is "disgraceful" and has "no education."
Legend simply replied "The Donalds and I graduated from the same University, funny enough." Both he and Trump Jr. graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.

Trump has certainly pissed off a lot of people, and we can be rest assured Legend will not be casting his vote for that particular party any time soon.
Overall, it's important to get information from both sides of an issue before making a statement – especially on Twitter. Things on the Internet can come back to haunt you (and your father's) political aspirations.
