I can't even fathom the gossip I read about myself anymore. Seriously.. Literally walked into a restaurant WITH MY FAMILY (including children, LOTS of children), bumped to a politician that I've never even met before, said hello and took pictures— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) November 30, 2017
Blake Shelton gave his side of the story about being pictured hanging out with Paul Ryan.
(like I would try to do with anyone I meet who asks). Then we immediately left because it was too cold for the outdoor area we had reserved. And now according to the internet we were hanging out or having some big secret meeting in a PUBLIC restaurant!!!!!! WTF?!!!— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) November 30, 2017
Are you kidding me? I don't do politics no matter WHAT you've read about me and how it's been spun. And THATS the TRUTH from ME. And if you can find it in your heart to hate me for that then so be it. This is out of control...— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) November 30, 2017
He also responded to a fan asking why he and Paul Ryan were wearing matching camo outfits.
Yeah we made sure we color coordinated. You are welcome to investigate... Please. Be my guest.— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) November 30, 2017
Shelton, who claims he doesn't "do politics", said this last year about Trump as he was complaining about country music being too politically correct:
"Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don't always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don't like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who's crazy here?
