Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s wife Jill has criticized President Donald Trump in a new Instagram post.
Jill Vedder wrote, “Need to repost this pic again .. this racist, so called potus does not represent this country and certainly does not represent me… #fuckutrump #impeach45 #resist #theonlyshitholeisyoutrump.”
Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson and former Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello also ripped the President.
Trump writes off “shithole countries”, Dems & Repubs embrace limitless NSA spying, Medicaid recipients may lose coverage. #LetsStartOver

Well I think it is official. The President of the United States is a full blown racist. Utterly disgusted by his hate-fueled rhetoric today.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder made a surprise appearance during Liam Finn’s set at the Ohana Festival last year in Dana Point, CA. Vedder performed Pearl Jam’s “Habit” with Finn, and changed the lyric ‘speaking as a child of the 90’s’ to ‘speaking as a child of the fucked up Trump generation.’
During Vedder’s headlining set at Ohana on Saturday, he discussed climate change and President Trump’s administration dismantling the EPA. “I’m not talking about politics. I am talking about love. Love for the planet. So this is for everyone in the Southeast. I hope they get through the weekend.”
Also during Vedder’s headlining set, he changed the lyrics of the Pearl Jam track “Sometimes” to diss President Trump. He sang, “You’re Trump and you got small hands, the orange blends, the challenges you give man.” The ‘small hands’ comment was a reference to opponents of Trump, including Senator Marco Rubio, saying during the 2016 campaign that he had ‘small hands’ which implied that he had a small penis. Trump then shot back at a debate that there was ‘no problem’ with the size of his hands, or ‘anything else.’
A woman in the crowd shouted at Eddie to “just play songs” every time he made a political comment. Another fan shouted “shut up and play your damn guitar.” Many fans though seemed fine with Vedder’s liberal comments.
