John Fogerty said he’s amazed that Donald Trump’s campaign success has lasted so long and outlived all predictions.

“When Donald Trump first announced he was running for president, I thought that’d be an eye blink,” Fogerty said during an interview with The Daily Beast.

“This has happened before in our history where sort of off-the-wall folks will announce their candidacy and then, as we learn more about them, it becomes silly and they eventually leave.”

“I happen to be a lifelong liberal, I’m certainly not going to be voting for Donald Trump, but I find the candidacy and that story fascinating on the landscape of American politics.”

“I’m also fascinated and I am very happy that Jeb Bush didn’t find it as easy as his family probably thought it would be to have another Bush up in the higher ranks.”

“He just doesn’t look that appetizing and most people feel that kind of way.” (RELATED: Kanye West Just Called This Republican Candidate ‘Brilliant’)
