Kanye West devolved into a lengthy political rant in which the rapper voiced his support of Donald Trump, saying that he admired aspects of Trump’s campaign, which was largely characterized by Trump’s politically incorrect and offensive remarks with regard to women and other minorities.
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump,” Kanye said. “There’s nonpolitical methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic. And that style, and that method of communication, has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication. And I fuck with that. I actually think that his approach was absolutely genius. Because it fucking worked!” It would seem as if Kanye is praising Trump’s marketing techniques, or the public persona he put forth. At one point in the video above, he says, “I hate the fact that because I’m a celebrity, everybody told me not to say that I loved the debates. I loved his approach.”
