Frank Ocean Calls Out Donald Trump, Praises Obama In New Tumblr Post

Frank Ocean‘s Tumblr page is arguably just as much of an outlet as his music, and in a recent post, he candidly speaks about new the President Donald Trump.

Ocean begins the post by commenting on the apparent attendance differences between Barack Obama‘s inauguration in 2008 and Trump’s inauguration this week.

“Don’t cook the books either, Donald. We all know your event was dry. No matter how many times CNN anchors repeat majestic or peaceful transition of power,” Ocean wrote. “The world can see America divided and the chaos in the streets.”

He goes on to give Obama kudos for his eight-year term, adding that he would miss them.

“Barack we love you but it would’ve been equally presidential if you would’ve just walked on out while Donald got through that struggle speech trashing your career,” he said. “The majority knows man, we know you did good. We see it.”

“The majority sees Donald for who he is too. He ain’t slick. And it’s too bad the majority doesn’t count,” Ocean wrote, referring to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes but losing the electoral college vote for the presidency.
