Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tapped into Facebook Live while he was getting a haircut, TMZ Sports reported, and shared some observations on Republican President Donald Trump's first days in office.

"This thing's getting out of hand," he said as a camera rolled, adding: "All the negativity that's happened, it's already too much. It's already crazy. It's already affecting people's hearts and souls and lives in such a negative way, in my opinion."

Clarifying early on "just so you know, I voted for Hillary," Wilson said protesters against Trump's immigration ban at Los Angeles International Airport were "all over the place, fighting for their lives."

"If we're gonna be a nation that says we're equal, we have to be equal," he declared, adding that his "Christian faith" says "we still have to love everybody, no matter what our issues are."

With that Wilson gave a prediction of sorts regarding Trump's staying power in the Oval Office: "I don't even know if he's gonna be able to last four years, in my opinion."

Wilson observed that would mean "something went wrong," so he doesn't hope for that.

But he made it clear who he wants back in the White House: "Barack! Come back, Barack! Come back, Barack!"
