Elton John praises George W. Bush, Donald Trump?

Like most actors and musicians, Elton John isn’t exactly the most conservative guy in the world. He’s not shy when it comes to expressing his political views and opinions. And more times than not those opinions are of the liberal variety.

That’s why the legendary musician’s latest comments were actually pretty shocking. The “Philadelphia Freedom” singer actually praised both George W. Bush and Donald Trump.

John’s comments came after defending comedian Ellen Degeneres for enjoying a football game with W. Of course, after the comedian was spotted taking in a Dallas Cowboys game with the former president, social media erupted, calling out Degeneres for associating with a Republican.

John responded, defending the comedian and nailed it on the head: “Unfortunately, what our democracy has become now is that it’s not OK to have different opinions than yours and that is not healthy.” 

He then went on to praise both Bush and Trump for their work on global work to help eliminate HIV and AIDS, in his interview with NPR.
