There’s a lot of debate regarding the treatment of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She’s been publicly ridiculed, fat shamed and even booted out of a restaurant and refused service. Now, John Legend is speaking out and has no time for questions about the White House press secretary. Legend has more important things on his mind such as helping the children who have been separated from their families due to President Trump’s zero-tolerance border-control policies.
Photographers with TMZ caught up with John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen after enjoying dinner together in Los Angeles. Chrissy could be seen getting into a vehicle, but John Legend stopped for a moment to answer some questions regarding Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Sanders has been in recent headlines after the Lexington, Virginia based restaurant Red Hen refused to serve her. The move called other people to follow suit and many said that in order to stand up against the Trump administration, businesses should refuse to serve them.
This has led to an enormous debate as some feel that the current administration is so off track, it is dangerous and needs to be stopped. They view themselves as protecting the nation from tyranny and by uniting together they can make a stand.
Earlier, Representative Maxine Waters stirred debate when she called upon people to protest the Trump administration and his border control policies that were separating families through targeted harassment.
Not everyone agrees that the answer to the Trump administration’s policies is to harass those within his cabinet. Those who do agree to harass Trump’s administration members believe that they must stand up and fight for America.
Others believe those who want to break the law and harass people based upon their political beliefs are dangerous, engaging in criminal behavior, and violating civil rights.
John Legend was asked his views on Maxine Waters’ comments and whether or not he believes she had crossed a line that would cost Democrats votes during the upcoming election.
Legend quickly made his thoughts on the issue plain.
“That’s ridiculous. Maxine is the OG and she did a great job. And she called [Trump] out when she needed to.”

When John Legend was asked about Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the recent fat-shaming she ensured he made it transparent and well understood that the main topic he wanted to discuss was the treatment of illegal immigrants being separated from their children.
It may come as no surprise but John Legend’s remarks regarding Maxine Waters has created an argument with Conservatives and MAGA supporters.
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with the recent treatment given to Trump’s cabinet? Do you think separating children from their families calls for harassing politicians?
