American Idol star Adam Lambert has used a very strong expletive to heavily criticize the US President's first 100 days in the Oval Office.
Asked about Donald Trump's time in the White House so far, Lambert had this to say: "I think it’s been a fucking mess really, and I think anyone who was on my side of the fence would agree with me – but you know, I hope that we as a country can wake up.
"Hopefully in three and half years from now, in the next term, we can make better decisions as a whole country. I hope more and more people will step up and make the changes that we need to make."
In an interview with NME, he added: “There are masses of people who don’t get involved because they don’t feel like they matter. The way that media is consumed and that the world socialises and communicates with each-other, makes it easy to get distracted by the tabloids. Unfortunately, I think that was part of Trump’s strategy – to kinda get into some sort of reality TV type of name-calling and BS.
“I think a lot of people fell for it because we’ve been told that we’re supposed to consume. There’s a lot of information that becomes so saturated. You know, you could have one celebrity standing soapbox and we need the people to take control of our country and not just leave it to celebrities to steer it one way or another. I don’t think that is going to be enough.”
