Kanye West Says He’d Have Voted For Trump (If He’d Voted!)


Kanye West has caught some controversy after telling a crowd in San Jose, CA that he admired Donald Trump’s election campaign and would have voted for him.

The rapper told the crowd:

“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump. Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much.”

Kanye even went on to reiterate his plan to run for president in 2020 – saying he would use Trump’s campaign model as his inspiration (so lots of insulting women, the LGBT community and various minority groups and ethnicities around America?).

West tried to explain what he found so great about Trump’s campaign:

“There’s nonpolitical methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic. And that style, and that method of communication, has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication. And I f*ck with that.”

He added that Trump’s political style wasn’t just “entertaining” but:

“I actually think that his approach was absolutely genius. Because it f*cking worked!”

Kanye went on:

“Sometimes things that you might think are bad need to happen, in order for change to f*cking happen. Sometimes you might have to not get your way to really understand what to do in the future, to be able to get your way.”

Where do we even start with this?

Firstly, not voting. Perhaps Kanye has forgotten the massive struggle that went in to ensuring that he has the right to vote? Then to dismiss racism in this current climate? Maybe that is fine for Kanye to say, given how his wealth, fame and status should serve to shield him from the worst of it. As for his admiration for Trump, we suppose Kanye must have a thing for privileged people who spout sh*t to the media…

You really could go off some people, couldn’t you?

Anyhow, if you want to check out what Kanye said for yourself, you can see it below:
