Throwing their support behind Hillary was fine but the mocking of Trump during Desire was uncalled for especially when Bono is still so heavily involved with his political causes. I guess he probably never believed that Trump could pull it off.

Uncalled for? What possibly could anyone do to Donald Trump that is uncalled for? He's one of the worst human beings who has ever lived. He is horrible in every way imaginable. There is nothing redeeming about him. He deserves every horrible thing said about him or happening to him. Don't give me this Dan Quayle bullshit. Bono's problem was not going far enough to bury him, because he couldn't.

Trump supporters are, in large part, ignoramuses driven by empty populist ideology and misinformation that are entirely stupid enough to lead us right into a ditch without thinking for themselves.

I don't fault Bono for reaching across the table to Bush because it needed to be done to get his work done.

And I definitely don't fault him for rightfully pointing out that Trump is an asshole either.

Are you even serious? Bono knew that he potentially had to work with this guy down the track. Why bite the had that could potentially feed you? He had no issues dealing with Bush who made Trump look like Mother Theresa. You have to remember that unlike the other celebrities who had only one objective in mind which was to see Trump go down, Bono had vested interests at stake. I'm sorry but it was a rookie move from Bono.

Bono squandered political capital. He screwed up, he trusted the Clintons

Trump has no intention of helping minorities or helping people outside the United States. He does not care about them. He does not care about the sick, he does not care about the poor. Bono correctly identified that he would not be able to work with this man. The only option was defeating him.

Bono is probably sick over this and doesn't care what that bloviating jackass can offer him.

Because he's a human being.

While Bush and I may not be politically aligned, it must be fun to live in a delusion land where you think he's a worse person than Trump.

Invading a country for no legitimate reason is good enough for me. You disagree?

Invading your own country with hate, division and lies isn't great either.

I've never woke up wanting to take a shot of whiskey before my coffee.

Well that was a short banning...

Bono and every other thinking man and woman knew there was no working with Trump, you should feel silly even making that post.
