When it comes down to experience, Hillary Clinton’s 30-year political track record speaks for itself. But for those who somehow still think Donald Trump can get by overseeing the White House, nuclear codes, and the future of our planet with just his Apprentice skills and background in sexual assault, music legend Stevie Wonder made a simple, but incredibly affective analogy that should silence all of The Donald’s supporters, as the Huffington Post points out.

“If you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?” he asked last week, to which a reporter replied “no.” Wonder continued, “Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?”

The 66-year-old musician, who went blind shortly after his birth, added, “So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation.” Well played, Wonder.

In related news, Wonder appeared on Monday night’s episode of Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He sat in with Colbert and Jon Batiste and Stay Human for a performance of “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” as well as the National Anthem.
