Kanye West is a rapper who oftentimes stands out among the rest of his fellow rap buddies in the biz — not just because he’s a brilliant rapper, but because of the absurd comments that fly out of his mouth.
From calling himself a God, to telling folks that they simply don’t have the answers, Yeezy doesn’t mind being the anomaly, which is why when West admitted on Thursday night that he was team Trump, we weren’t too surprised.
During the rapper’s show in San Jose, the father of two admitted to his fans that although he opted out of voting this year, he did support the official president-elect. “If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted on Trump,” he told the crowd.
The 39-year-old continued, “Everybody told me not to say that I loved the debates, I loved his approach. I think that Hillary Clinton should still be a consultant. I think that Bill Clinton should still be a consultant. Obama should still be a consultant.”
He added, “To Black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a f*cking fact. We are in a racist country.”
The audience booed the entire time Yeezy was on his political soap box, making it very clear that Yeezy fans weren’t exactly following Trump on his campaign trail.
It’s unclear what prompted West to open up about his political viewpoints now, but we wonder if fans will still support the rapper. Meanwhile, we can now add Kanye to the growing list of Black celebrity Trump supporters, which includes Omarosa, Stacey Dash, Dennis Rodman and Mike Tyson.
It’s also worth noting that Trump and Ye have always had a seemingly supportive relationship. When Kanye announced during the 2015 MTV VMAs that he would be running for president in 2002, Donald gave his full support.
“Kanye West, I love him,” the the Republican candidate said during a press conference. “Maybe in a few years, I’ll have to run against him. I don’t know. I’ll take that back. He’s been so nice to me. You people have sort of seen—because I’ve been a counter puncher.”
He added, “I only hit people when they hit me. And Kanye West is so great. I would never say bad things about him because he says such nice things about me.”
Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding
Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.
Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.
Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to Brides.com.
The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told Brides.com. “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”
Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
