Rapper Gets Booed By Fans For Saying He Would’ve Voted For Trump


Rapper Kanye West laid aside several songs during his show in San Jose Thursday evening and launched into a 40-minute political speech instead, creating a mixture of boos and cheers among his fans.

West announced during the middle of his show, “This is my platform, and I’m going to talk about the paradigm shift that’s happening right now.”

He talked about racism, and said, “Specifically to black people: stop focusing on racism!  This world is racist, ok? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much.   Do not allow people to make us talk about that so f***g long.”

Then he dropped the bombshell. “I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? What I didn’t tell you … If I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump,” West said.

Immediately the crowd started both booing and cheering.   One person even reportedly threw a shoe at him, which he promptly signed and threw back to the person.

West added, “That don’t mean that I don’t think that Black Lives Matter, that I don’t mean that I don’t think I believe in women’s rights … because that was the guy I would’ve voted for.”

One woman yelled that she loved him, and he said “Thank you!”

West said he liked Trump’s style and method of communication.   He also expressed an interest in running for president himself in 2020.

He said, “I hate the fact that just because I’m a celebrity, everybody told me not to say, ‘I loved the debate,’ and ‘I loved his approach.’”

As the crowd buzzed and booed, he said, “Sometimes you may have to not get your way.”
