Mary Mary Star Defends Vote For Trump, (but Doesn’t Stand With Him)
Mary Mary’s Tina Campbell finds herself talking a great deal more about the fact that she voted from Trump than the last season of Wetv’s Mary Mary reality show which they are presently during press rounds to promote.
Campbell and her sister, Erica recently appeared on “The Real” when the subject of Trump was brought up. Here is what Campbell had to say:
“What I said is if during your campaign what you said appealed to me and it appealed to my Christian values more than the other candidate, then when it comes down to it, I chose based on my faith. “I didn’t really like either one of the candidates if I could just be honest. But it was two people that had a chance of winning, I voted based on my faith. Do I agree with everything that’s being done and being said? No.”
“Do I promote and advocate that? No. And do I choose to give any of my time about my right to vote and my opinion behind it? Not at all, so next question.”
In a controversial open letter released back in January, Campbell wrote, “I believe that neither Mr. Donald Trump nor any of us, are the sum of our mistakes, but instead, we are the sum of the potential and greatness that God , our Creator, has deposited inside of us. I choose not to discredit that potential and greatness inside of us. I choose not to discredit that potential and greatness inside of Mr. Donald Trump simply because my previous perception of him has not been as great as the God who masterminded his existence.”
Campbell who has always been somewhat of a maverick, believes that as a Christian, she is supposed to pay for the nation’s leaders.
That, she says, “does not mean I agree with everything.”
WE tv’s popular docu-series “Mary Mary” returned for its sixth and final season September 28th. The series, which chronicles the lives of Erica and Tina Campbell, sisters and members of the contemporary gospel group Mary Mary, will close out with six one hour-long episodes.
“I’m so grateful to have shared the last several years of my life, personally and professionally, with all of the supporters of the viewers of our reality show,” said Tina. I can’t possibly find the words to truly express my gratitude for this experience so I’ll just say thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who made it happen and to everyone who watched it happen. It’s been great.”
