KanyeWest wants the world to know…again, that he is supporting Donald Trump.
We’ve heard it far too many times, but here Kanye is telling us how much he admires and supports Trump. In an interview with WSJ Magazine for its April issue, the 42-year-old rapper shared his thoughts on people’s reactions to his 2018 comments on Trump.
“I’m a black guy with a red (MAGA) hat, can you imagine? …It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous when I would walk in a restaurant, and people would look at you like you were going to steal something,” he said. “‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.'”
He then broke down his views on the multiple layers of hierarchy within society and how it pertains to his political decisions. “Everything is about putting people in their place. Classism, protectionism — not just racism. Classism is like living on a bookshelf. The more money you have, the higher you go. And you get to the top and look over, and what do you see? Fear.”
We all first heard about Ye’s love for Trump when he defended the commander in thief, calling him his “brother.” “You don’t have to agree with trump, but the mob can’t make me not love him,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.
To make matters worse, West is not registered to vote and claims he does not follow politics, which is kind of confusing since he has been following and meeting with Trump for the past few years. Nevertheless, other celebrities, including #JonVoight and #RoseanneBarr, have also expressed their support for Trump.
