Merle Haggard has spent some much needed time recovering from an illness recently. He has some thoughts on Donald Trump after catching up on current events while he recovered.
Merle Haggard is back to touring after canceling a couple shows because of a “double case of pneumonia.” While he was recovering, he had lots of time to watch the news, as he is a huge news junkie.
According to Rolling Stone, Haggard has been “watching Donald Trump’s campaign with amusement and concern.”
“He’s not a politician,” Haggard says. “I don’t think he understands the way things work in Washington, that’s what worries me about him. I don’t think he realizes he can’t just tell somebody to do something and have it done, you know. I think he’s dealing from a strange deck.”
While Haggard is not the only one to feel that way, there are many country singers and celebrities who have endorsed Trump including country’s leading lady, Loretta Lynn, and Duck Commander CEO and “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson. Do you agree with Haggard’s opinion on Trump?
