Kanye West: ‘I would’ve voted for Trump’
Remember when Kanye West said that he was running for president in 2020? Everyone had a laugh and and even made a hashtag out of it. Meanwhile, some of us paused and realized there was no reason to presume he would be running as as a Democrat. Those concerns have been justified.
At a recent concert, the rapper/fashion designer took one of his trademark self-imposed interruptions to let the crowd know what side of the line he fell on in the recent election. The fact that he didn’t actually vote is somehow the relief.
“I would’ve voted for Trump,” stated the same man who once called out President George W. Bush for not caring about black people on national television.

This recent confession comes as a surprise to many fans, who feel a range of emotions including betrayal, shock and frustration. However, the writing’s been on the wall for quite some time.
While Donald Trump was proven to put multiple lies out into the world during his campaign, many of those included either denying the support that was in his corner – such as the Ku Klux Klan – or claiming he had the support of people he couldn’t confirm.
But, there were no corrections from West or his people when Trump came out publicly saying he would never speak ill of Kanye West because “He goes around saying Trump is my all-time hero. He says it to everybody. So Kanye West, I love him.”
Well, Kanye pretty much just accepted Trump’s relationship status request and made their union Facebook official.
“I miss the old Kanye.” – Everyone
