"I Say To Hell With Them"

Elton John is supporting Hillary Clinton for President and said this at a fundraiser held at Radio City Music Hall:

"I never cease to be amazed at the misogynist attitude of some of the people in this country," he said. "I say to hell with them."

Now, some people are going to try and spin this as anti-American, but that's not strictly true.  It's just anti-"anyone who doesn't want to vote for Hillary" Americans he's talking about.  What would that quote look like if Elton supported Barak Obama?  Let's see:

"I never cease to be amazed at the misogynist racist attitude of some of the people in this country," he said. "I say to hell with them."

Progressive politics at its finest.  Heh.

2 So if he support you it might be:
"I never cease to be amazed at the misogynist imbibist attitude of some of the people in this country," he said. "I say to hell with them."

Elton John is pretty much one of those endorsements you fight NOT to get. How big a voting bloc is the old broad demographic, anyhow? 

Say, I saw him in concert during his 'coming out' tour. I went to see a piano player and got smacked in the face with the feathered sunglasses and the six foot platform shoes. I was fifteen; it was a little brain-hurty.

4 Hey, if he doesn't have to like women, I don't have to either...

Dope.  I was trying to make a funny, based on his not liking girls "in that way", thus I don't need to be fond of a certain Junior Harpy Senator from New York.

I should have known you'd twist my words!

 

racist...
