Kanye West said some inflammatory things at a concert in San Jose, CA last night about President-elect Donald Trump that has sent the internet into a tizzy, but in true Yeezy fashion it’s not whom you would expect that’s contemplating burning their Yeezy Boost’s.
West, who previously made headlines by saying he might make a run at the White House in 2020, took multiple breaks in Thursday night’s performance of his Life of Pablo tour to speak up about the recent presidential election.
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I would’ve voted I would’ve voted for Trump,” West told Bay Area concert-goers. “I actually think that his approach was absolutely genius. Because it f*cking worked!”
At first glance this bro fest wouldn’t make sense coming from Mr. West, who famously proclaimed on live television that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” but it makes complete sense considering that both men are megalomaniacal, multi-millionaires whose best form of communication is Twitter.
We love to hate them and hate ourselves for loving them, thus we can’t stop talking about them.
“I hate the fact that because I’m a celebrity, everybody told me not to say that I loved the debates,” professed West, who thanked Trump for letting racists reveal themselves. “I loved his approach. Sometimes things you might think are bad have to happen, in order for change to f*cking happen.”
