NME reported that Dylan performed in Madison, Wis., Monday night, and Obama had appeared at a rally in the city that same morning, adding that Dylan said during his show:
We tried to play good tonight since the president was here today … Don’t believe the media. I think it’s going to be a landslide.
Dylan took to Facebook Tuesday to clarify what he said:
Here’s pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow. Also, that we’re not fooled by the media and we think it’s going to be a landslide. That’s pretty much all of it.
