Motown legend Stevie Wonder had some harsh words for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump: “Voting for him is like asking me to drive.” (Jesus take the wheel!)

The singer made these comments during a “Get Out A Vote” concert in Philadelphia on Friday, says the Huffington Post.

If you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?” he told the crowd.

He added, “Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?

The 66-year-old stressed that the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the right choice for America given her extensive experience and acceptance for this nation’s citizens.

So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation,” he said.

Wonder concluded that he doesn’t want to spend the “last years of my life in a place of pessimism” under a Trump presidency given the reality star turned politician’s track record of hateful and irresponsible rhetoric.

This is not a reality show. This is life in reality. So I’m with her because I believe in where we are, and where we are going to go. I have always believed that America is great. We’re just going to make it greater,” he said.

A 49-year-old woman was shoved in front of a moving train at NYC’s Times Square station Monday afternoon. She died at the scene.

According to the New York Post, the victim was standing on the platform waiting for the 1 train when a 30-year-old woman shoved her onto the tracks. The police say that the ladies were seen arguing before the train pulled into the station.

An unidentified MTA worker told The Post that the alleged attacker seemed as if she “kinda proud of what she did.” However, authorities believe she was emotionally disturbed and had a history of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, WABC News reported.

During a press conference after the attack, Manhattan Chief of Detectives William Aubry sent his condolences to the victim’s family.

Our hearts go out to the victim and the other people who were on the platform and saw this.We are looking at video of this incident and the person of interest as they entered the station,” he said.

NYPD later arrested the woman who allegedly pushed the woman to her death.

RIP: Janet Reno, First Female US Attorney General, Dead at 78

Janet Reno, the nation’s first female US Attorney General, has dead. She was 78-years-old.

According to NBC News, Reno died from complications to Parkinson’s Disease on Monday in her Miami home surrounded by family and friends.

During her tenure as the Attorney General under the Clinton administration, Reno found herself in the center of numerous political controversies including her handling of the raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, that left 80 dead. Also, in 2000, she came under fire for seizing 5-year-old Elian Cuban, an undocumented immigrant, from his  Miami home and deporting him to Cuba to be with his father.

Despite her past, her colleagues praised her for being a trailblazer when news of death hit.

Current Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a statement “praising Reno for being a ‘trailblazer’ for women working in law enforcement and government,” NBC noted.

She never shied from criticism or shirked responsibility, earning her the affection of her subordinates, the respect of her critics, and the esteem of the American people,” Lynch wrote.

RIP Ms. Reno.
