Former Bush official supports Clinton, says Trump could be ‘disaster’
Carlos Gutierrez, former Bush administration official, says he will be voting for Hillary Clinton, and called Trump’s economic policies a “disaster.” Gutierrez was the former commerce secretary under President George W. Bush, and said he decided on Clinton after looking at the “totality” of the choice between the two candidates. “I have one resume here for Donald Trump, I have one resume here for Hillary Clinton, and I’ve chosen this resume,” Gutierrez said. “I think this person, Hillary Clinton, is the best for the country. I’m not thinking about (it as) a Republican, I’m thinking about (it as) a US citizen. I think at some point, you have to put the party aside and say what’s best for the country? I don’t want to live in a society that I think Donald Trump will create.”
Adele won’t perform at Super Bowl
Adele told fans at a concert in Los Angeles on Saturday night that she declined the NFL’s offer to be part of the Super Bowl LI half time show in Houston on February 5, 2017. “Come, on. That show is not about music, and I don’t dance or anything like that. They were really kind, they did ask me, but I did say no,” she said Saturday. While the half time shows are known for their upbeat and high-energy performances, Adele is known for her soulful ballads. “I know I’m not Beyoncé, I can’t dance or anything like that,” Adele said. The NFL said in a joint statement with its sponsor, Pepsi, that they are “big fans of Adele” but that they haven’t made a “formal offer” to anyone for next year’s show.
