"He's a piece of shit," Legend continued. "He says piece of shit shit all the time — that's what he does. We need to get him out of office."

The comments from the 40-year-old Grammy Award winner — one of Trump's most outspoken critics in Hollywood — appeared to be spurred by the president's recent Twitter assault on Rep. Elijah CummingsElijah Eugene CummingsDemocrats plot next move after GOP sinks Jan. 6 probe Lawmakers press AbbVie CEO on increased US prices of two drugs Overnight Health Care: AstraZeneca may have included outdated data on vaccine trial, officials say | Pelosi says drug pricing measure under discussion for infrastructure package | Biden administration extends special ObamaCare enrollment until August MORE (D-Md.). Trump attacked Cummings in an ongoing series of tweets that began last week, suggesting the House Oversight and Reform Committee chairman hasn't done anything to help his Baltimore-area district, and calling the Maryland city "a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess."

Asked what can be done to help Baltimore, Legend told TMZ's camera, "There's a lot that can be done. It's got over a century of history that created the problems that they have."

"We need to focus on making all of our communities better instead of talking shit about our communities just because you're a racist prick," added Legend, who alongside his wife, Chrissy Teigen, headlined the Democratic caucus retreat in April.

"Donald Trump is an evil f---ing canker sore on America's whole landscape," the father of two said. "So we need to get him out of office."
