Jermaine Jackson Blasts Donald Trump For Namedropping Michael
And Jermaine was NOT having it. Via NYDN:
Donald Trump should “Beat It,” according to the King of Pop’s big brother.
Former Jackson 5 member Jermaine Jackson slammed the blowhard billionaire Friday for speculating that his late friend Michael Jackson had lost his confidence due to “bad, bad, bad” plastic surgery.
“‘Friends’ don’t pay tribute by peddling b.s. theories about Michael’s ‘loss in confidence,’” the musician tweeted in response to the loudmouthed mogul’s comments during a CNN GOP town hall. “This fool Trump needs to sit down.”
“Michael’s confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances,” he added. “Period.”
Jackson also accused Trump — who embarked on an unexpected tangent about Jacko’s life and legacy during Thursday’s Anderson Cooper-hosted event — of pandering to the Moonwalker’s fans.
“Name-dropping Michael don’t make you cool and won’t win you votes,” he said. “Especially when using botched facts.”
Good for Jermaine standing up for his brother’s legacy. Who asked Donald anyway???
