Talk about long-reaching effects.
Soul singer Sharon Jones died Friday at age 60 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer and a member of her her longtime band, the Dap-Kings, said Jones blamed Donald Trump.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Gabriel Roth said he flew to Jones’ bedside on Election Night after she suffered a stroke while watching the returns.
“She’d been fighting fighting cancer for a few years now, and there’s been all kinds of stuff coming at her,” Roth told The Times. “But the thing that actually got her in the last couple of weeks was, she had a stroke watching the election results.”
“I flew out and met her up in the hospital in Cooperstown, and I saw her and she told the people that were there that Trump gave her the stroke,” he continued. “She was blaming Trump for the whole thing.”
Roth said she had a second stroke the following day and was unresponsive after that.
