I guarantee you that you would not be trying to smear U2 if Bono had not spoken out against Trump. Whether you want to believe it or not, there are a LOT of people who agree with him regarding what he said. That number is growing every day due to Trump's antics.

If not paying taxes is bad then Trump is really really bad.

If Bono wants to take all immigrants then let him use his private jet and take them to his mansions in Ireland and pay the tab.

its funny how foreigners come here and preach politics when they are not from this country.

is Trump going on foreign soil to trash the immigration policy of another country like Bono has in ours?


Bono is not from this country.....if he wants to take all immigrants then run for leadership in Ireland and welcome everybody from terrorist sponsor countries. When things start blowing up and Irish dying in the streets of Ireland maybe he can sing for all of us the song "ONE".

I couldn't care less about Trump and yes I would be criticising U2 regardless, indeed I have done so in the past.

Their music is bad enough but all this we are so saintly stuff makes me ROFL, as does their made up names, outright hypocrisy and tax avoidance.

Trump isn't lecturing or attacking U2 though is he, and it's U2 who keep going on about poverty in places such as Africa yet put their money in to tax avoidance schemes.

It's very easy for celebrities and singers to attack others whilst presenting this holy than tho image, and people are tired of it to be honest.

It's like pretending you are learning philosophy by listening to the words of a Beatles song.

Actually he did (on an economic issue). When he went to Scotland for a ribbon cutting ceremony at his golf course. He praised Brexit despite the fact that Scotland had voted against it.

I always chuckle when one of you RW zealots don't recognize the threads and posts made by one of your fellow RW zealots. Shows the lack of awareness that afflicts 'true believes' of any ilk. But especially you guys.
