Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines Calls Trump 'Mentally Ill and Elderly'

Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines took to social media yesterday to share her views on the President, calling the Commander-in-Chief such things as "mentally ill and elderly." In an Instagram post, the singer shared: "Listen, I think it's unbelievable how people are badmouthing the President! It's unacceptable! This is our President! How dare you make fun of the mentally ill and elderly," the country singer wrote. "Not to mention, he's the President of our United States Of America! Unbelievable. Don't you know we live in a democracy?! You can't do that sort of thing. What are you thinking?!"

The singer was responding to the White House's recent announcement that after a physical exam, Dr. Ronny Jackson declared that President Trump was in "excellent health."

In 1995, Maines was recruited by the Dixie Chicks to replace their lead singer, Laura Lynch. With Maines as lead vocalist, the band earned 10 COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION AWARDS and 13 GRAMMY AWARDS for their work between 1998 and 2007. In 2006, with Maines still acting as lead singer, the Dixie Chicks released Taking the Long Way. The album subsequently won five GRAMMY AWARDS (including Album of the Year).
