For someone who didn’t bother to vote in the 2016 presidential election, Kanye West, had a lot to say about politics during his concert in San Jose on Thursday, November 17.
The rapper stopped the show to ramble about his love for Donald Trump, racism in America and other topics..
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But I didn’t tell you, If I would have voted, I would have voted for Trump,” Kanye said. “Everybody told me not to say that I loved the [presidential] 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. I think Obama should still be a consultant.”
Some audience members grew antsy and began to boo. One woman screamed “shut up!.” Another person threw something onstage at the rapper, but that didn’t stop his rant
“Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism,” he continued. “This world is racist, OK. Let’s stop being distracted, to focus on that as much. It’s just a f*cking fact. We are in a racist country … period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so f*cking long.”
West also confirmed that he is serious about running for president in 2020
