Stevie Wonder: Voting for Trump is like asking me to drive a car

Stevie Wonder is an absurdly talented musician, singer, songwriter, and producer. Just about the only thing he can't do is drive, and he used that fact to make a point about the election.

Wonder has been blind for almost his entire life, and he had a cheeky response to a reporter's question about why he supports Hillary Clinton. On Friday, Wonder performed at a concert for Clinton in Philadelphia, and was asked by Philly.com's Dan DeLuca why he was backing the Democratic nominee. "My youngest child is 1 year old," Wonder said, and he is "looking at the future. I'll give you a point of reference. As much as you have great love for me and you think I'm funny and la la la la la and I make you laugh and all that, if you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?"
