Former Fugee Member Doesn't Support Wyclef Either

| Filed under: PolitikSean Penn

Sean Penn isn't the only one not supporting Wyclef Jean in his campaign to become president of Haiti.

Former Fugee bandmate Pras has not only publicly criticized Jean, but he's also made it clear that he supports Jean's opponent, Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly, adding that "he's more popular in Haiti than Wyclef."

Pras is concerned that Jean lacks a definitive plan to help the millions of people living in tents since the Haiti earthquake earlier this year. Pras says, "You've got 1.2 million people living in tent city right now. What are the plans to get these people out?"

He also questions the fact that Wyclef uses a private jet to travel to Haiti, rather than taking a commercial flight. His concern is that "the money saved can help displaced families."

He does have a point…

What do U think?

    OF COURSE PRAS IS FUCKING RIGHT… AND FATBOY, STOP COPYING SHIT FROM WSHH WHERE THE VID OF PRAS TALKING ABOUT WYCLEF WAS TAKEN. JUST MORE AMMO TO SUPPORT THE FACT PEREZ RUNS A CUT & PASTE BLOG. HAS FAT BOY EVER RESEARCHED AND DOCUMENTED AN ARTICLE ON HIS OWN??? LIKE WYCLEF, HE LACKS CREDIBILITY AND EXPERIENCE. JUST SAYIN.



  2. 2

    Just what Haiti needs another dictator. Read James Mitchner's book "Carabbian" for an insight into Haiti's history.

    WYCLEF, WHEN ASKED IF HE'S QUALIFIED FOR PREZ OF HAITI: "I'M FEEL I'M AS QUALIFIED AS ANY OTHER CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF HAITI. I CANT SING FOREVER.." WTF!!! SOUNDS LIKE A LOSER CANDIDATE TO ME. YEA, DOUCHE… KEEP SINGING.

    WHAT ARE WYCLEF'S QUALIFICATIONS????? Considering that this is one of the poorest countries in the world, most of the donations never came through, and he knows NOTHING ABOUT ECONOMICS, EDUCATION, FINANCE, HEALTHCARE, BANKING, (need I go on?) and he is a self indulgent, possible thief from his OWN charity, , why yes, I think he has all the qualifications to make this country THE POOREST ONE IN THE WORLD. His campaign can be-I can take you to #1!

    Pras is definitely spot on on this one.



  6. 6

    being a dictator is cool



  7. 7

    Who gives a fuck what Wyclef does.

    They can have the FEMA trailers still strewn about in Mississippi and Louisiana from Hurricane Katrina. They are just sitting there collecting dust and are also known as FEMA cottages. They come in three lovely pastel shades and are one above being in a "tent city". Poor Haiti and who cares who the President will be as long as it is someone who can improve the situation for the people.

    He DOES have a point…however…you first need to hear the pros and cons from both sides… I don't know how "good" of an idea it is to have a celebrity in office, but, then again–it COULD surprise us…and who's to say Wyclef wouldn't utilize OTHER money to make up for the travel?? (IF he plans on private jet travel, at all…) You REALLY need to look at it from ALL sides before you put your 2-cents in, Mario!! You tend to run off at the mouth–A LOT!!



  10. 10

    (And, next, you'll be saying they should vote Gaga in, Mario…you're SO transparent!!)

    If Wyclef has the money to fly privately - thats his option. Big deal. IF he flew commercial, there is no obligation on him to donate the difference to "displaced families" or anyone else. As for Haiti - its been a pit since 1934. It would take more than a pop star to fix decades of corruption and decay.



  12. 12

    Well, Wyclif MUST be OK if Sean-America-Hating-Penn dislikes him!!!



  13. 13

    Wyclef could become the new Obama of Haiti…you know….celebrity status, no qualifications, no experience managing anything important…. and we all know how that will turn out!



  14. 14

    u dont want to mess with the voodoo from haiti
    next there will be a little doll with pins in it eeek



  15. 15

    Is Wyclef considered a serious candidate for president of Haiti or is this a publicity stunt?



  16. 16

    This was on the front page of CNN and all the others last week.



  17. 17

    Im surprised no one has brought up the fact that Pras and Wyclef are cousins.



  18. 18

    The only way that things will get better in Haiti is if people care enough and use birth control and lower their birth rate. Otherwise they will create their own suffering.



  19. 19

    His "plan" is to just mooch money from AMERICA.



  20. 20

    Wclef is definitely shady and only doing this to enrich himself. I agree with the other comments that he wants to be the NObama of Haiti…all smoke, mirror, and teleprompters, but no substance.



  21. 21

    celebrity masons/boule should not be running Haiti…Haiti in my opinion was a HAARP created disaster…then the church gets the tax breaks cuz they do the "dirty" work-clean up for the government(i mean mafia police state)–churches/education/media/and politics=government controlled institutions and "industry" for mind control=power of suggestion–"you act like a tube, you believe whatever the tube tells you…you dress like a tube..you aven think like a tube" the generations that never knew anything except the lies and illusion of this corporate fraud=lie of the ages
    They have a luciferian agenda-yep the people who control and constructed all these



  22. 22

    Anyone that's researched Wyclef's past knows he's corrupt. Way too shady.



  23. 23

    I duno, I think that Wyclef cares about Haiti enough to be a pretty good president, but anyone that uses a private jet and then talks about world affairs as if there's no disconnect there is an asshole. That includes Oprah.
