During his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour stop in California, rapper/producer Kanye West revealed he did not vote, but if he would’ve cast a ballot, it would’ve been for President Elect Donald Trump.

Seemingly departing even further from the ‘George Bush doesn’t care about Black people’ Kanye that we used to know, Yeezy went on to explain that his hypothetical vote doesn’t change his beliefs.

“[Voting for Trump] don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter, that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights, that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage,” he said, according to CNN.

He also told the  audience to “stop focusing on racism” because “we’re a racist f***ing country — period.” and added, “not one or the other candidate was going to instantly be able to change that.”

Well Kanye, opting out of voting doesn’t change anything at all…

Someone then throws something at the stage that hits him and Kanye threatens to cancel the show. “Am I not allowed to have an opinion,” he asks. “Im a human being too, I have feelings, I liked the debates, Im a guy & a rapper, I’m a non political rebel, the debates were entertaining.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kanye proclaims once again that he will run for president in 2020 and after a 40 minute political rant, he …to read the rest log on to (clickable link on profile) #morevideos #readmore #clickthelink
