Stevie Wonder says voting for Trump is like asking him to drive

"If you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?" Stevie Wonder, who is blind, told Philly.com after his Get Out The Vote concert for Hillary Clinton on Friday.

The reporter replied, "No," to which the music icon said, "Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?"

That was the 25-time Grammy award winner's argument against supporting Trump: A vote for the Republican nominee is tantamount to asking him to drive. He asserted Clinton has a political track record, which makes her a more viable option.

"So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment," he said. "Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation."

Wonder also praised the Democratic nominee for being a "fighter" over the years for many different causes.

"You gotta think that sometimes the world has broken her heart, and yet she’s still committed. She’s still fighting for women’s rights, for women’s equal pay, for people of all ethnicities," he said.

The 66-year-old recording artist also criticized Clinton's billionaire rival for many of his policies, telling Philly.com he doesn't want to spend the "last years of my life in a place of pessimism" that he believes would exist under a Trump administration.

"This is not a reality show. This is life in reality. So I’m with her because I believe in where we are, and where we are going to go," he said. "I have always believed that America is great. We’re just going to make it greater."
