Bret Michaels is also speaking out against Jerry Seinfeld for pulling out of a charity event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital because he didn't want to be associated with Trump's ever focused mission to get Barack Obama to show his birth certificate.
While we agree with Bret that nothing should get in the way of helping kids who need it, absolutely, we feel that if Jerry deemed it necessary to back down that he did it in a very proper way — by making contributions to both the charity and the hospital!
If it HAS to be done, making sure to help the kids in some way will always be the best course of action. There is no need for all this animosity!
Here's what Bret said:
“Donald Trump and his family have been wonderful to me and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital is one of my favorite charities, so I’m honored to have been asked by Eric and the rest of the Trump family to be a part of this event and help raise money for such an admirable cause. We should never allow the spirit generosity to be overshadowed by divisive political beliefs — and when it comes to saving the life of a child, there is absolutely no room for political rhetoric and red tape. Regardless of political views, the only thing that should matter is the lives of these children and their families, so I’m eager to offer my assistance to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in any way that I can.”
That was actually really well said, Bret, but we can't still but help to feel that because of his contributions in his stead that everyone shouldn't be all that mad at him. He could have been a waaaay bigger jerk about it!
Maybe that's just us!
How do U feel about this situation??
