Donald Trump Criticizes Hillary Clinton For Taking A Night Off (Her Birthday) At An Adele Concert

On Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton celebrated her 69th birthday at an Adele concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. And while the British superstar took a moment out of her performance to endorse the Democratic nominee, not everyone was impressed. In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Donald Trump has made it painfully clear that he doesn’t approve of Clinton’s concert outing.

Stephanopoulos asked Trump how he feels about criticism that he spends a great deal of time at Trump Tower rather than hitting the ground hard in battleground states. Trump felt that the sentiment was “unfair” because Clinton went to the Tuesday Adele concert and everyone simply (as he sees it) raved, “Isn’t that wonderful?'” He continued:

“I built one of the great hotels of the world. What am I supposed to do, not show up? I’m taking one hour off, I’m going to North Carolina right after this, then I’m going back down to Florida, I’m going up to New Hampshire. I’m all over the place. But I can’t take one hour off to cut a ribbon at one of the great hotels of the world? I mean, I think I’m entitled to it. She goes, she does one stop because she has no energy. She’s got nothing going. She does one stop. And nobody complains about that. Nobody complains when she goes to an Adele concert all night long, while I’m making two speeches at rallies with, you know, massive crowds.”

As Think Progress’ Judd Legum was quick to point out on Twitter, Trump himself is a big fan of Adele. Just last year, in fact, the real estate mogul attended an Adele concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York. He’s also been known to play her songs at his rallies.
