He was joined by his wife on stage during a pivotal political rally in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the night before the US presidential election.

And John Legend took the opportunity while performing at the function in support of Joe Biden to comment on a particular aspect of this year’s candidates, and certain famous personalities who’ve received their support.

In a now viral video, the EGOT winner, 41, took specific aim at rappers who’ve chosen to endorse Donald Trump, such as Ice Cube and Lil Wayne.

‘Some people see the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump and they mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity,’ the father-of-two said.

‘Some people see his greed and they mistake it for being good at business. Some of your, former, favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies,’ he continued.

‘I think they’ve even founded a new super group. It’s called the Sunken Place’, he added.

‘But Trump‘s Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool’s gold!’ 

Legend was one of the featured speakers and performers at the Joe Biden rally in Philadelphia on Monday night, in an effort to generate more support for the Democratic nominee in Pennsylvania – a major swing state.

John’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, and their daughter Luna also got on stage to greet the crowd, which was assembled for a drive-in get out the vote rally.

Teigen herself has also been an outright dissenter when it comes to Trump, and has even gotten into tangles with him on Twitter on multiple occasions.

Vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris, senator from California, was also present.

It was one of the first public appearances John and wife Chrissy, 34, have made after enduring the loss of their unborn baby boy Jack in September.

Recently, the Lip Sync Battle star posted to her social media about how friends of the couple donated blood in honor of baby Jack, which Teigen said made her full of ‘warmth and happiness’.
