Cyndi Lauper Re Trump: "He Goes To The LCD And Stirs Up The Crap!"
Cyndi Lauper has been busy promoting the Broadway musical of Kinky Boots that she scored, but she also manages to give us her true colors on topics like Donald Trump, whose Celebrity Apprentice she appeared on back in 2010.
As the singer/songwriter tells Next magazine:
"It's just sad.
"I thought he could have done better for his country than just go to the lowest common denominator and stir up the crap.
"It's our country, it's not wrestling. If you try and make our President fail, it doesn't matter who he is, you make our country fail."
Cyndi knows from wrestling--remember Lou Albano?--but she also knows that it should be completely separate from the political arena, though I've definitely been tempted to throw Trump onto the mat on occasion.
