Singer John Legend offered his unasked-for advice on how to deal with some of the recent issues dividing the nation.
Legend smugly offered a “deal” with President Trump’s administration in the wake of the immigration controversy over family separations at the U.S. border and disrespectful treatment of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders by a Virginia restaurant.
The actor and songwriter tweeted out his “deal” on Monday, offering to let Trump administration officials “eat wherever the f–k you want” if migrant families who have been separated by the zero-tolerance immigration policy are “immediately” reunited.
Let’s make a deal with the Trump Administration. Reunite all these families immediately and you can go out to eat wherever the fuck you want.

Legend’s “let’s make a deal” approach comes on the heels of a contentious few weeks as the rhetoric on both sides of the political aisle have ramped up. Tensions are at a boiling point as unhinged leftists have harassed Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as they attempted to eat out, have seen Hollywood actors call for frightening actions against Trump’s young son Barron and even a Democratic congresswoman calling on her supporters to openly harass members of Trump’s cabinet “wherever” they are.
Of course, for liberal celebrities like Legend, the obvious is not often so – well, obvious.

“Do what we say and we won’t harass you in public spaces.” Sounds a little fascist to me. https://t.co/qWsx1hz0GI

You really don’t want to make this the new standard, dude. https://t.co/QMinPPslcU

“Do what we say and you can feel safe in public” is a great message to combat fascism and divisiveness. https://t.co/FpHPt4CXCd

‘Do what we say, or else…’
Wow. The line between ‘the Left’ and ‘far Left’ becomes increasingly blurry https://t.co/DcmsSbzX5u

Let’s make a deal with @johnlegend If he tweets to @BarackObama to express his disappointment in how these kids were treated under his administration and says he shouldn’t have peace until he apologizes, then we will believe he’s not a complete hypocrite https://t.co/dxyVSfF1ku

Twitter users quickly schooled the singer.
How about we just go out to eat wherever the fuck we want anyway and you just kiss our asses? https://t.co/4tMtKWW2hP

Really??? Good luck with that.

Let’s make a deal with sane Americans (John Legend not included). If you want to change policy use the democratic process to do it and then we can all eat wherever the f%^* we want. #JustSayin https://t.co/euxpqh0Pcg

How about we make a simpler deal – you let the USA be run by the laws that have been legislated – rather than elevating the President to King of all laws. By virtue of those laws, you don’t get to dictate where people can and can’t eat – unless you own the establishment. Fair?

Yeah, because John gets to make the rules.

Well, he is the voice of the migrant worker and the common black man behind his walls in Beverley Hills.

God I was such a fan of yours.
This makes me sad.
Your hate shows worse than what you keep spewing about Trump. How is it better?
When do we EVER, in America.. not have a right to peace and eat somewhere? What kind of deal needs to be had, for that?
You saying I’m not safe?

Where were you when Obama was separating families?
Let’s make a deal, YOU get educated about the topics before tweeting AND YOU stop the hypocrisy because YOU‘D let a BLACK MAN CAGED KIDS… just not the WHITE GUY, right? There is an R word…🤔https://t.co/gGrixZjrF7

Here’s a better deal: let everyone who entered the country illegally stay with you and we’ll all by your next album.
