Kanye West was featured on SNL last night to perform his music, but what happened after is what got some real attention. When the show went off air and the cameras stopped rolling. That’s when the artist known as Ye took to the mic and went on a pro Trump rant.
The rapper has been vocal about his support for President Donald Trump from the start. And, last night he had some choice words for the audience as he proudly wore his MAGA hat. Like most of his controversial speeches, Kanye started off singing and eventually broke off into words.
“I wanna cry right now,” he sang. “Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now. And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t not stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’ Well…”
“Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats. It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”
“It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all their policies.”
His speech garnered some snickers and boos, but for the most part people fell dead silent. Chris Rock captured most of it via Instagram story which can be seen below.
President Trump apparently didn’t watch, but he did praise Kanye for his appearance on SNL.
Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!
