Kanye West Reveals He Would Have Voted for Donald Trump
The rapper went on a Trump-supporting rant during his concert in San Jose, Calif. on Thursday night (Nov. 17, 2016) — and fans are definitely not happy about it. “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” West told concertgoers during his Saint Pablo stop. “But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted on Trump.”
After his announcement, some fans even started to throw things at him on stage. However, West continued into an extended monologue about politics.
“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 fuck with that,” he continued before admitting that he thinks Trump’s approach was “absolutely genius” because it “f–king worked.”
“That don’t mean that I don’t think that Black Lives Matter,” West also said, defending his social views. “That don’t mean I don’t think that I’m a believer in women’s rights. That don’t mean I don’t believe in gay marriage. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in these things because that was the guy I would’ve voted for.”
