Kanye West Comes Out As A Trump Supporter / Says New President Is A “Genius”

Published: Friday 18th Nov 2016 by Sam

Kanye West is never one to hold his tongue.

However, unlike most of his Hollywood contemporaries, the rapper was noticeably mute in voicing his views on the recent US election.  A move which surprised many given his publicly declared desires to run for office in 2020.

True to form, it was only a matter of time before Yeezy sounded off.

And he used the launch of the second leg of his ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ in California to share his view that Donald Trump is a “genius.”

During one of many rants at the show, he added that while he didn’t vote, he would have voted for the US’ president elect.

Read a blow by blow account from a fan in attendance below…

Live Tweeted by @RaptorJesuss:

Kanye is now 40 minutes late.

Kanye has entered.

Kanye has been talking to the audience for the last 10 minutes telling us all to believe in ourselves and share ideas and to integrate.

Times Kanye has stopped the show to give speeches tonight: 5 times.

Another show stopped. Kanye is asking who voted for Hillary, mixed cheers and boos. Kanye is calling out Trump supporters.

“There are Hillary supporters that may be louder, but MY fact is that there are people who who voted for Trump here at the show”

“I’m not asking ya’ll on your opinions on who’s better, but there are people who voted for either side that come together for music”

“The dumbest thing about politics is that politics separate, not one side or the other side is bad, it’s not Democratic or Republican”

“Echoing is what made people think Hillary was going to win, you thought because what the Internet was telling you, that she was gonna win”

“Don’t believe what you see when you see it on the internet, it might have been tampered with.”

“Rappers are philosophers of our now, celebrities are the influencers of our now, just look at the president, he wasn’t in politics & won”

Kanye is talking about how Trump is the president of the free world, and that everyone needs to ask more questions & not to trust the net

Kanye just said he thinks he’ll have the experience in 2020 to run for office, I’m dead serious, Kanye just said he’s preparing for 2020.

Kanye says he wants to change the education system and that we’re one world.

Kanye now talking about how he wants people with principle and wants someone to bring light problems w/ education, housing & other elements.

Kanye telling people to stop clapping, that it’s rude when he’s talking.

“Some people might have come here to slam and turn up, but if you clap when I’m in the middle of idea it’s distracting”

“This is my platform and I’m going to talk about the paradigm shift that’s happening right now.”

Kanye pointing out how people boo’d when asked “Do you think people who supported Trump enjoy a Kanye show”, 2nd time, people replied “Yes”

Kanye just asked the crowd “What percent of people here voted for Trump.” crowd booing, people are pissed he’s not playing music.

Kanye says he’s welcoming Trump supporters and he says everyone has the right for whoever they want to vote for.

Kanye admitted he didn’t vote in 2016, but says he is concerned with how to become a different type of president in 2020 if nobody else does

Kanye now playing Power. After a 40 minute political rant.

Kanye West just stopped the show again to tell us that Kanye liked Trumps campaign. Someone threw something at Kanye but he isn’t mad.

Kanye happy a woman just screamed she loved him even though Kanye said he liked Trumps campaign. Kanye is supportive of Trumps Anti-PC.

Kanye is now saying how he loved Trumps debate style. Kanye is glad Trump inspired racists to reveal themselves. “This is the beginning”

“Sometimes you might not get your way in order to learn in the future how to get your way. You might understand what I’m saying but…”

Someone threw something at Kanye that hit him, he’s now threatening to cancel the show. “Am I not allowed to have an opinion?”

“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 now playing Blood on the Leaves. There have been 13 stops, about 1 hour of ranting so far.

Kanye just stopped the show again “Whether you voted for Hillary and Trump, this is a safe space for both of you”

Kanye just started a song and is now mad that people are dancing……..

Kanye just stopped Jesus Walks, talking about how Trump is a genius.

“Next song”, now at Flashing Lights, he’s cut more than half of his songs with rants.

Kanye’s gotten through 5 songs in a row, he just stopped again, Kanye says “I wanted to vote for Trump”, says he respects Hillary supporters.

Kanye says [manager] Scooter Braun told him not to come out as a Trump supporter before election night.

Kanye said as a black man and as a celebrity he felt persecuted for supporting Trump, feels vindicated.

Kanye then says “Neither candidate would fix racism in this country” Walks off stage, end of concert. WOW.

Hot mess. Not because of the content of his views. Those are his right to have. But more so the manner in which he chose to share them.

Folk paid to see a tour for an underperforming album and received an incoherent rant that had nothing to do with…anything.

Again, a mess.

    I am glad. Trump is a better choice than Killary

    • LISA LEVINE November 18, 2016

      Kanye West is an fool. A DumbN. He says whatever is opposite of what the community says so he CAN KEEP HIS NAME IN THE MEDIA. He’s turned from gifted artist to Media Ho_e. Just like his nasty porno wife and her bloodsucking family.

      • #ispeakfacts November 18, 2016

        The only reason why he’s saying this because Jay Z & Beyonce campaigned for Hillary! He’s so jealous of them!

    • I cant November 18, 2016

      Yeah, for white supremacists.

    Trump & Kanye – June Geminis 🙄

    • RoyalKev November 18, 2016

      ‘Ye makes us (Geminis) look bad sometimes! These June Geminis are going to be the only sign in the entire zodiac that need a distinction like this! May Gems (Bob Dylan, Lauryn Hill, Lenny Kravitz) are actually less attention seeking, unlike their June counterparts (Kanye, 2Pac, Marilyn Monroe, Trump) … Let me stop generalizing though, Andre 3000, Prince, Left eye and Niomi Campbell are May Gems that fit the same description! o_0

      • D November 18, 2016

        Haha! Fair point.

      • Suicide Blonde November 18, 2016

        That’s not fair, lol…I’m also a may Gemini, leave my Marilyn alone, she wasn’t an attention seeking w****, just a w**** but all Geminis are 😜

      • FAF November 18, 2016

        I was just about to say even though she’d never say what he said

        This write up reminded me of what ppl witnessed when they saw unplugged and lauryn kept talking about religion and they just wanted to hear beats

        He’s reductive bc this has already been done

      • #ispeakfacts November 18, 2016

        @ Royal Kev

        Tupac was never an attention seeker! Everything Pac said or did was 4 a reason! He spoke truth! Pac probably would have never supported Hillary nor Trump either he probably would have supported Bernie! Pac stood up for the black community’s well being… especially the poor bcuz he knew they didn’t have a voice!

  3. JOHNVIDAL November 18, 2016

    This guy was cute and refreshing a decade ago when his reivindications made sense. Now he just seems like a lunatic (I´m not talking about music).

    • Fancy BISH November 18, 2016

      JOHNVIDAL serving truth tea this morning lol…yaaas

  4. Suicide Blonde November 18, 2016

    I bet he also thinks that Hitler was a genius.

  5. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler November 18, 2016

    Whats worse? This…Or Lil Wayne saying that he doesn’t care about the blm?

    • I cant November 18, 2016

      I would say this. Because who ever had high expectations for Wayne anyway? That wasn’t surprising at all. Kanye is really falling off and his decline is much worse because he should know better. That Kardashian curse ain’t no joke.

      • Paulo November 18, 2016

        stop. Caitlin Jenner was the only Kardashian flagging for Trump. Kanye was always koookoo before Kim, just ask Amber Rose. stop blaming women for straight men foolery.

      • I cant November 18, 2016

        Have a seat. The Kardashian curse is not specifically referring to anything Trump related. It refers to the fact that every man associated with that family has issues more outrageous than normal. Scott is an alcoholic. Tyga is a pedo. Bruce became a woman. Rob just had a baby with his little sister’s boyfriend’s baby mama. Kanye is an attention-whoring lunatic. Lamar almost died from drug abuse. And let’s not forget Robert Kardashian sr. died in his 50s from Cancer. Did I miss anyone??

        It doesn’t matter how you try to rationalize it None of this is meant to be funny. There is something very wrong with that family.

  6. Paulo November 18, 2016

    the male Azealia Banks… there’s like 10% of meaningful social critique hidden underneath all that b******* and mental confusion and hypocrisy. but he’s a man so he gets to say it and keep his career. he just needs to STFU. he doesn’t need to support the Republicans or Trump to acknowledge that some of their critiques make sense.

  7. Fancy BISH November 18, 2016

    Trump better get a trump tight TEAM together, cause lord knows he doesn’t have the slightest clue about being a President! You notice how every President ages significantly during their tenure? Because it’s highly stressful and taxing! The responsibility is enormous! The information you are privy to can be horrifying! Trump looks scared! He’s straight shook! Melanoma looks shook too lol…his whole family looked like a deer in headlights when he won! Praying for the world! And Kanye, you are NOT a President *Maury voice* lol

    • I cant November 18, 2016

      I’ve been saying this. Obama had experience and the support from Michelle, and he still aged fast in those 8 years. Obama was a young guy when he got in office, only 47. Cheeto man is 70 years old with no experience and his support is that squinty eyed h** Malaria who can hardly speak English. I wouldn’t be surprised if he died.

    • D November 18, 2016

      Melanoma 😩😭

    • Truth tea November 18, 2016

      😂😂 So true, he looks terrified.

  8. MUSICHEAD November 18, 2016

    These Trump supporters are going to be very disappointed when they find out that he doesn’t care about poor or middle class people. Being white, black, Hispanic, gay or straight won’t make one bit of difference to him. His agenda is all about supporting his fellow elitists and anyone who thinks otherwise will soon learn. Hillary might have her flaws but everything she has done for this country was to keep it safe and moving forward.

    • Justsayin November 18, 2016

      They’re both the devil hitlery and chump. Chump is a xreaming racist and hitlery is a silent one. Reciepts look up hillary Clinton genocide her team literally puts pph in black communities to stop our population

    • Casual November 18, 2016

      When perception meets reality, let us know. Benghazi, Rajiv Fernando, the Clinton (Crime Family) Foundation, Haiti, taking bribes from terror-sponsoring foreign powers — you need to rethink your view of St. Hillary. Trump isn’t perfect (by any stretch), but his focus on bad trade deals and how it hurt our economy is what helped him crack the blue wall. We didn’t need socialism (Bernie) or socialism-lite (Hillary), but capitalism and someone who understands free market economics.

      • #ispeakfacts November 18, 2016

        It will be very interesting to see your opinions of his policies 4 years from now… I can guarantee you are better off now than you will be 4 years from now…. No matter how you twist it or turn it Republican policies does not work for the middle class, working class nor the poor! If u fall under any of those categories you will be affected in a bad way from his policies! And don’t get me started on the policies against minority’s and women! His presidency will be worser then George Bush!

  9. RoyalKev November 18, 2016

    Kanye man, you could’ve been a hero! You were much more profound way back! What is this Kardashian clan doing to you! Look at what you’re becoming! I can’t take too many more of these rants! … and I f**** with you!

  10. :/ November 18, 2016

    I feel like Kanye just officially revealed how apart of the system he is and I also no longer care about this dickhead

  11. Randell November 18, 2016

    Well well well…… I told you before (somewhere around a Beyoncé and Rihanna Post earlier these weeks) my juicy friends Trump was about to win!!! You have no clue people… I think Kanye comes to get to his normal self bit by bit but he needs to stop the ranting…. *tireing* and the fact that he loves Trump does not makes him a valid 2020 candidate!

  12. jaaam November 18, 2016

    Lest we forget, this is the same guy who says things like “Bill Cosby innocent!!!!” – nothing surprises me with him anymore. He only ever gives a s*** about oppression when it suits him anyway.

  13. Coolness November 18, 2016

    This guy is GONE!

  14. SMH November 18, 2016

    Kanye has always been an idiot. Nothing new to see here, folks.

  15. whut November 18, 2016

    This is a publicity stunt, people. There’s a reason why Kanye was basically quiet throughout the whole election. This is his schtick; just say something against the general consensus and that will give you instant attention. No wonder he loves Trump, he is an attention w**** just like him, that’s what they do.

  16. whut November 18, 2016

    Remember folks, this is the same man that said kim kardashian is more iconic than Michelle Obama lol.

    Good job Ye. I might start to listen to your music now. TrumpPence #MAGA

  18. leveinard November 18, 2016

    He’s going to cry woe is me in about a day’s time. He’s great at playing the victim, but he asks for this s***. This is why Jay-Z don’t fvck with his whack ass anymore. Accept that you don’t always have to speak on issues. Does he even have a team around him anymore? I’d imagine they’re all Yesmen, but now I just think he’s running riot all on his own. A waste of talent.

  19. optumrx login November 19, 2016

    Kanye now saying The Saint Pablo show is safe for anyone’s political opinions and everyone is entitled to a good time.

    That’s why I’ll never attend a Pablo show. People don’t give a f*** about your personal views …and they didn’t pay to hear all the extra b******* commentary. It’s tacky and unprofessional as s***. I think this negro needs to be medicated.
