Whoa! Justin Timberlake got political during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on April 3, dissing Donald Trump while celebrating Taylor Swift. Justin trashed Trump, saying that while he’s trying to build walls between people and countries, Taylor is someone who ‘knocks them down.’
Suddenly, the iHeartRadio Music Awards turned into iHeartPolitics, as Justin Timberlake, 35, totally burned the Republican presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, 69. While Justin was on stage to honor Taylor Swift, 26, he couldn’t help but take a shot at the GOP candidate.
“Some people are out here to build walls – we ain’t naming no names – Taylor chooses to knock down walls and invite everyone to be on her #Squad,” Justin said during the April 3 award show at The Forum in Los Angeles. Justin decided to take a shot at Trump while awarding Taylor with the iHeartRadio Best Tour award. When some in the audience people didn’t seem to get it, the ex-N*Sync member said, “That was a political joke. Shut-up. You can’t even vote!”
Of course, Justin was joking about the “can’t even vote” crack, but he was serious about slamming Donald for his now notorious plan to build a gigantic wall along the southern U.S. border with Mexico – and making the Mexican government pay for it! Don’t build a wall between you and unlimited and ad-free streaming music – sign up for it here and listen to Taylor and Justin’s music all day long!
Needless to say, Donald might now be throwing out his Justin Timberlake albums. Though, the former Celebrity Apprentice star doesn’t seem like he’s someone who’d bring sexy back, no matter how many times he says he’s really a nice guy.
"Some propel aren't here to build walls.. Unlike some people"
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AT DONALD TRUMP 💀

It’s not likely that Taylor Swift’s fans are going to vote for Trump, even if they’re old enough. Donald’s constant misogyny may have been mocked by Saturday Night Live, but his attacks on women are no joke. Plus, Donald’s comments about immigrants were slammed as “unchristian” by Pope Francis, 79! If Donald getting dissed by Justin was bad, getting burned by the head of the Catholic Church is way worse!
What do you think about Justin’s comments, HollywoodLifers?
