Clay Aiken weighed in on the future of Confederate statues, saying they should be moved off public land and into museums.
“I think we can’t forget history, but I think they belong in a museum,” the former North Carolina congressional candidate told Mediaite Wednesday. “Germany doesn’t put up statues to its Nazi dead.” (RELATED: Clay Aiken Attacks Trump On Twitter Following Terror Attack)
On Tuesday, Aiken joined the growing crowd of celebrities who labeled President Donald Trump “racist” for his remarks at a press conference about the violence in Charlottesville where the president put the blame on both sides.
“Remember all those times I defended @realDonaldTrump and believed he was not actually racist? Well… I am a f*****g dumbass. #imsorry,” the 38-year-old singer tweeted.

Several celebrities have blasted the president on Twitter included Rosie O’Donnell, George Takei, J.K. Rowling, and Chelsea Handler.

To every member of Congress – harsh words are not enough. You cannot allow a neo-Nazi defender to remain in power. #ImpeachTrump

One good thing about that abomination of a speech: it’s now impossible for any Trump supporter to pretend they don’t know what he is.
