Kanye West To Concert Goers: “I Would Have Voted For Trump”

Kanye West always knows how to get people talking, and last night during the Sacramento stop of the second leg of his Saint Pablo Tour, he proved that even after a few weeks of silence, he hasn’t lost his gift of hitting people’s nerves.

According to multiple concert goers, the Chi-Town rapper paused his show to discuss the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. He said that he was a fan of Donald Trump, enjoyed his debate style, called him a “genius” and then said that if he voted this year, the president-elect would have gotten his vote.

After getting hit with both boos and a few objects from angry fans, West said that he respects those who voted for Hillary Clinton. His comments, as documented by Twitter user @RaptorJesuss, made it seem like he was finally relieved to get his thoughts out about being a Trump supporter.

“Kanye says Scooter Braun told him not to come out as a Trump supporter before election night,” she wrote. “Kanye said as a black man and as a celebrity he felt persecuted for supporting Trump, feels vindicated.” @RaptorJesuss also wrote that the “Fade” MC said that neither Trump nor Clinton “would fix racism in this country” before walking off stage and ending the show.
