US Republican presidential hopeful, Donald Trump is getting it rough at the moment because of ferocious criticisms from first Pope Francis and now Jermaine Jackson, the brother of legendary singer, Michael Jackson.
Trump had told reporters that Michael Jackson was a “really, really good friend”, and that he (Michael) had lost his confidence towards the end because of “bad, bad, bad surgery”.
Jermaine accused Trump of being a name-dropper who was using his dead brother’s name to push his own cause and get votes.
An angry Jermaine called Trump a “fool”, and said he was not Michael’s friend.
“Friends’ don’t pay tribute by peddling b.s. theories about Michael’s ‘loss in confidence’. This fool Trump needs to sit down.
“Michael’s confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances. Period.”
“Name-dropping Michael don’t make you cool and won’t win you votes. Especially when using botched facts,” Jackson tweeted.
