Blake Shelton is clarifying his comments praising U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, insisting his statement was not an endorsement for the controversial Republican. In a new interview with Billboard magazine, the country singer was asked about his political leanings, and while he didn’t say outright who he’s planning to vote for this November (16), Blake did commend Trump for his unashamed frankness. He said, “I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here?
