With the media, Hollywood, and the music world being as far left as they are, it's an every day thing to hear one of them speak negatively about the President.

But when one speaks out in support of President Trump, it comes as a shock initially just because it's hard to believe that there is a liberal out there willing to recognize Trump's accomplishments.

One liberal rock star took the time to tweet out some praise to President Trump for honoring Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The singer’s fans were disgusted by the act. Someone even asked the singer if she had sold her soul...a typical disrespectful move from the left.

Chrissie Hynde, 68, the lead singer of The Pretenders, who has a history of animal rights activism, tweeted out why she was praising Trump. In the series of tweets, she noted her father’s World War II service, the fact that he loved listening to Limbaugh, that her father often disagreed with her, then concluded by ripping those who refuse to tolerate disagreement.

In an open letter to Donald Trump on his Twitter account, Hynde wrote:

“Dear Mr. President, I often think of how much my father, Melville “Bud” Hynde, who proudly served his country as a Marine on Guadalcanal, would have enjoyed your Presidency. The other day when you gave that award to Rush Limbaugh, my father would have been so delighted. He loved listening to Rush, which is why I allowed my song, “My City Was Gone,” to be used on his radio show. My father and I didn’t always see eye-to-eye. We argued a lot. But isn’t that the American way? The right to disagree without having your head chopped off?”

“Soon, I will be participating in a protest in London against the extradition of Julian Assange. I know my father would be mortified, but I feel strongly enough to do what I believe is the right thing; to protest further punishment of a man who sought to defend Freedom, albeit in a way you rightly disagree with. I know Mr. Assange broke the law (as i have done defending the treatment of animals) but I believe he has been duly punished and should now be set free. Please consider my plea.

Yours truly,

Chrissie Hynde of @ThePretendersHQ”

 

Music Times wrote in 2015 about Hynde giving Limbaugh permission to use the bass riff from her song “My City Was Gone.” Music Times wrote of Hynde, ” … her parents were huge Limbaugh fanatics and that she’d be willing to strike a deal with him. He cut her a check rumored to be worth $100,000, which she donated to PETA, an organization they both supported (Limbaugh had spoken out against the Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to test chemicals on animals). He got to keep the song.”
