Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood Receive Harsh Backlash for Skit Mocking President Trump

When will celebrities and performers learn attacking the President of the United States is a horrific PR move for them?

As reported by the WashingtonExaminer

Country Music Awards hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mocked the politics-free zone that organizers declared last week.

Ignoring the guidance from organizers asking to keep the event about music, the duo played off of the lyrics to Underwood’s hit “Before He Cheats,” singing, “Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”

The two noted President Trump’s feuds with Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the National Football League, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

“He’s probably asking Siri, ‘How in the hell do you spell Pocahontas,’” they sang.

The backlash on social media was swift.

It’s safe to say that more country music fans voted for President Trump than for Hillary Clinton.


  1. I started to watch the CMA awards show but soon found out it was like all the others they couldn’t leave politics out of it. and dumb me I thought Carrie Underwood was a Christian. I immediately turned them off and will never but any of their records.. So much for respect. Even if you don’t like the man the least you can do is respect the Position of President. I am ashamed of you all

    • I was very surprised that Carrie Underwood , would lower herself to the standards of most of the so called awards shows lately . I will NOT be watching anymore and will BOYCOTT ALL AWARDS SHOWS INCLUDING CMA’S NOW . You should all be ashamed of yourself for trashing the President of USA , he is twice the President Obummer was and he hasn’t killed or bribed anyone to lie about sexual assaults . HE LOVES HIS COUNTRY AND IT’S CITIZENS & DOESN’T WORRY ABOUT OTHER COUNTRY’ CITIZENS AS IT SHOULD BE look after your own first or be like Canada who before long with their child leader are going to be ISLAM state just what Obummer wanted for America .

  2. I agree with this outrage!! These are two dumb people who should be banned from future CMA shows!! Disgusting duo! No more buying if their CDs!!!

  3. My girl left me, my car broke, my horse died, my bar’s closed, and I can’t get any gigs because I keep singing the same old cryin songs. Get with it you loser’s….

  4. yep they are the same, thought it would be just Hollywood, but found that it has extended unto the country music scene. you just lost a whole lot of fans because of your IGNORANCE. you should have stuck to the music ONLY.

  5. We were disappointed in the CMA allowing your show to become just like the others. The hosts and performers were all just showing off for the cameras. Good for them. Oh now wait just a minute. Y’all know who used to buy CD’s I suppose. It was us, the sincere middle class who voted for President Trump. Remember the NFL is the latest to not treat our Flag with respect. Now look how their profits have plummeted and before long they’re going to be a thing of the past. Don’t you think someone would have thought how we would react or were you all just thinking be like the others. Shame on you Carrie and shame on you Brad.

  6. I really thought you were better than that. Your music hit the trash can this morning, I am one of many fans who are done with you 2 idiots. CMA is no different than the thug awards. DONE. #BOYCOTT

  7. Bye, bye. Will not support anyone that publicly redicules a president on national television. Big mistake because your fans are Trump voters. Shame on you! I place you with the football players that kneel when the Star Spangle Banner is played. The CMA awards should not be brought into politics. I don’t care who is president. You owe America an apology.

  8. Well no more watching the CMA awards and will not play your music. Y’all have gotten like all the other libs. We are the ones that buy your music. Not anymore!! We love our President Trump.

  9. It’s not just dropping Brad and Carrie CD in the trash… be sure to delist all their songs on Pandora… it feels great too!

  10. Never watch CMA again ,like NFL .My Potus is making my country great . I put up with their president for eight years and watched our country go downhill. Fact of life we can do without carrie and brad ( In lower case on purpose)

  11. I’m so glad we have this platform to speak. I was so upset when Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley started trashing our President. They both should be ashamed of themselves and I won’t watch any CMA award shows again. Neither of them obviously remember where they came from and maybe forgot what happened to the Dixie Chicks when they trashed President Bush. Shame on both of them. They are both disgusting.

  12. Underwood and Paisley, how could y’all be so foolish as to risk your careers over slamming the president? Did you think at all? Did you object at all when the CMA wrote that script for you? Now the biggest question is are you going to come back as hosts for the 11th year in a row. Questionable.

  13. The only redeeming thing about underall would have been her husband, Predators star Mike Fisher. He’s retired now so underall can take her skankiness with it. I’m not sure who brad pasty is so who cares?

  14. I thought Nashville was a conservative alternative to liberal Hollywood. Boy, was I wrong! Nashville is getting to be just as bad. I quit watching awards shows a long time ago, because I don’t enjoy them anymore. I’m glad I didn’t see this one, because I would’ve changed the channel immediately! Brad, Carrie, and others like them need to take a cue from people like George Strait and Reba McEntire, and just keep their political views out of the public eye. We country music fans would appreciate it very much if you would not turn these awards shows into political rallies. Enough is enough! You don’t represent middle-class America, and we don’t want your political views crammed down our throats! We will boycott your music if that’s what it takes to get you to shut up about politics and just sing country music. That’s what you came to Nashville to do, so just stick to entertaining your fans with non-political country songs. The entertainment world will be much more entertaining.
