This comes as a bit of a surprise to me. I might be stereotyping a little, but I assumed that someone like him – and no, I’m not talking about the color of his skin – a rich, left coast songwriter and hip-hop producer would vote for the Democrat, no matter who it was.
First of all, apparently he didn’t even vote. But he’s not one of these non-voting people who are burning down cities in the name of “peace” and holding up signs that say “Love Trumps Hate.”
Second of all, he said – much to the chagrin of his audience – that if he had voted, he would have voted for Donald Trump. From Breitbart:
Kayne West’s Saint Pablo Tour concert in San Jose quickly turned chaotic Thursday night after the rapper delivered a nearly hour-long political speech in which he said he would have voted for Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election.
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump,” the rapper told the crowd, which responded with a chorus of boos.

West then praised Trump’s anti-politically correct stance and said that he feels vindicated after having been persecuted for supporting the President-elect.
Then, he went on a rant about racism in America and directed his criticism towards blacks. “Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, ok? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much,” he said.

He then went on to rant about the how people were convinced by the “liberal media” and the internet that Hillary would win.
