Hollywood’s hurricane relief telethon turned political with many stars using the opportunity to share their liberal platforms. First was Stevie Wonder who minced no words when he mocked global warming deniers… including President Donald Trump.
Stevie opened with a touching speech about loving the planet and coming together for those devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and calling out those who think there’s no such thing as global warming, reports TMZ.
“Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent. Lord, please save us all,” said Stevie, then continued with a rendition of “Lean on Me.”
However, many criticized the singer for “undermining the objective of the telethon by alienating half the country in the first 30 seconds.”

The “Hand in Hand” telethon reportedly raised over $44 million in relief funds for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in one night of fundraising.
Celebrities like Al Pacino, Justin Timberlake, Jon Stewart, Chris Paul, Demi Lovato, Diddy, Leo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber, Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon, Drake and many more pitched in for the one-hour long show.
As mentioned, liberal celebrities wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to trash President Trump and push the liberal narrative. Houston native Beyonce said in a video message aired on the telethon that hurricanes Harvey and Irma were a big blow following the recent “violence and racism in this country. She added she thought times “couldn’t possibly get worse,” but then the hurricanes hit.
Also, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun who organized the telethon was seemingly aiming his remarks about “hate and division” towards President Trump.
