PRESIDENT TRUMP is about to get an earful from GARTH BROOKS. As you may know, the President’s new budget would eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts, and Garth’s not happy about it.
He told “Billboard”, “It’s worth fighting for. You can’t let those arts go. You just can’t. It’s what defines our generation. It’s what defines your country.
“So, yeah, you can bet that we’ll be yakkin’ in somebody’s ear and start talking and start working up there and try to figure out who to go and talk to and represent the arts, ’cause whatever the result is, it’s your job to try.”
Let’s be clear, here . . . he’s not talking against the President, he’s just doesn’t agree with the proposed cut, and he plans to argue his point. He also thinks it’s wrong that we’ve gotten to the point in politics where you can’t disagree . . . about anything.
“I don’t know where all of the sudden we’ve gotten to where there are 10 subjects and [if] we don’t agree on one of the 10, we can’t get along? We CAN all get along, but the thing is, you can’t cut the arts.”
