It didn’t take John Legend’s endorsement of Soros-funded San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin to prove he is a walking tool. What it does do is reinforce what a champagne elite he is.

This is just one tweet in a long thread where the EGOT-winning singer-songwriter basically endorses every progressive Democrat running for district attorney across the nation.

What. A. Shock.

Legend and his toxic wife Chrissy Teigen own several houses, none of them in San Francisco. Their $14.1 million Beverly Hills mansion is their most recent acquisition. In the event they get bored wandering through all those bedrooms, they head over to their 3,400 square foot West Hollywood mansion. And if they feel like switching coasts, they have two Manhattan penthouses to slum around in.

Out of touch, much?

Grammy-winning artist John Legend announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon he is supporting San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin in his June 7 recall election. Legend said he supported Boudin over two years ago when the district attorney first ran for office.

Legend tweeted to his 13 million followers to vote no in Boudin’s recall election in a couple months.

Boudin’s recall came into question after growing concerns over public safety and criticism of his handling of several high-profile cases. Despite those looking to get Boudin out of office, Legend is not one of them.

While Asian-Americans get targeted for crime and people have to dodge drug-fueled homeless attacks while stepping over needles and feces in the street, people like Legend get transported around in limousines, surrounded by armed security guards.

When your head is that far up your hindquarters you apparently get high off the fumes.

One person Legend didn’t endorse in his thread: Michael Shellenberger, a San Francisco author, activist, and progressive Democrat who is running against Gavin Newsom for governor.

Here’s what Shellenberger had to say about Chesa Boudin:

When Chesa Boudin ran for San Francisco district attorney in 2019, he said crime was caused by poverty, wealth inequality and inadequate government spending on social programs. He called prostitution, open drug use and drug dealing “victimless crimes” and promised not to prosecute them. The result has been an increase in crime so sharp that San Francisco’s liberal residents are now paying for private security guards, taking self-defense classes, and supporting a recall of Mr. Boudin, with a vote set for June 2022. Retailers like Walgreens and Target are closing stores in the city, citing rampant shoplifting. Last week, a shockingly organized mob of looters ransacked a downtown Louis Vuitton store.

We’re sure Legend’s personal assistant is the one who has to watch out for the smash and grabs, since Legend and Co. probably don’t have to step foot out of the house to shop. If you can afford to live behind gates and walls, you can also afford to have others do your shopping for you.

But at least his personal assistant has a job. Thanks to the rampant crime, San Francisco is bleeding companies faster than the homeless get ahold of fentanyl. The CEO of a cryptocurrency exchange just announced it was closing its Market Street headquarters because San Francisco is not safe.

San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange’s CEO announced the closure of its Market Street headquarters in the city for good — and blasted San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin in the process.

Kraken CEO Jesse Powell, in a statement first shared by Boudin recall organizer and conservative mayoral candidate Richie Greenberg on Twitter, appeared to shame Boudin for employees getting harassed and for “crime, mental illness and drug abuse” in the city.

“San Francisco is not safe and will not be safe until we have a DA who puts the rights of law abiding citizens above those of the street criminals he so ingloriously protects,” Powell wrote in the statement. Powell also praised police in his statement, saying they were “known to arrest the same offenders dozens of times” thanks to Boudin.

But John Legend bounces in his bubble, gazing through his rose-colored Gucci glasses, while spouting the usual progressive talking points about equity and community services suffering because the police force receives too much money.

He wrote this after the George Floyd rioting and looting in the Summer of 2020. Tell me that this video taken two years later does not look like a descent into anarchy.

Legend continued to bloviate in this thread:

“Police funding takes up a huge portion of our local budgets. Budgets are moral documents which spell out in black and white what our priorities are. We have finite amounts of money to spend and right now we spend far too much on policing and that choice comes at a cost.”

Priorities? Like having four multi-million dollar houses for a family of four?

Legend, pull your head out of your backside, so you can take all the seats.
