Willie Nelson appeared on “The View” on Tuesday where he blasted Donald Trump supporters who attacked him after he announced that he would be headlining a rally in Texas for Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke.
“You’re making headlines yourself with your politics,” co-host Joy Behar told Nelson. “People are shocked at that, that you would support a Democrat. Why? Why? Do they have some misunderstanding of you?
Nelson started laughing and said, “I guess so because I’ve been supporting Democrats all my life. I haven’t hidden it that much.”
That’s very true, Nelson has always expressed his support for Democrats. He even claimed to have smoked marijuana on the roof of the White House while Jimmy Carter was president.
Behar then questioned Nelson if he was “getting a lot of flak” from Trump supporters.
Nelson just laughed and said “I love flak. We’re not happy till they’re not happy.”
Nelson also addressed any Trump supporters who were in the crowd by simply saying, “I don’t care.”
