Bono Rips Donald Trump at U2 Concert: 'You're Fired!'

The 'With or Without You' hitmaker took aim at the Republican presidential candidate during a concert in the Bay Area on Wednesday night, October 5.

AceShowbiz - Bono blasted Donald Trump during a U2 benefit concert in the Bay Arena on Wednesday night, October 5. The "With or Without You" hitmaker went for a debate with a virtual manifestation of Trump during an interlude of "Bullet in the Blue Sky".

The band posted the anti-Trump portion of the concert on social media along with title "Liberty". Clips of Trump praising his own net worth, vowing to build a massive wall, promising to deport all of the people who immigrated illegally to the U.S. and expressing the desire to hit a protester in the face were shown on the large screen while Bono would only refer to Trump as "candidate."

"A wall? Like the Berlin Wall? Like the Great Wall of China?" Bono asked after a clip of Trump discussing the wall. He added, "Now, candidate, you understand that it's not just Mexican people who are going to have a problem with this wall of yours. It is everyone who loves the idea of America. Like the Irish, for example! Or the French. Or the Brazilians. Everyone who loves the idea of America. Everyone who believes what they read at the bottom of the Statue of Liberty."

Bono went on, "Good people are not going to stay silent while you run off with the American dream. Alright, candidate? ... You hear me candidate? You're fired!"

U2 will be donating proceeds from the sold-out show to help pediatric care and research at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals.
