Kanye West Didn’t Vote But Claims He Would Have Supported Trump

Life in the United States has felt so unbelievable over the last few weeks that it’s been easy to forget all about Kanye West and the many, many ridiculous things he says. Well, that all went out the window last night, as Kanye took some time during his concert in San Jose Thursday to tell the audience that he didn’t vote in the presidential election … but if he did, he would have supported Donald Trump.

It didn’t go over very well.

“If I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump,” Kanye revealed, before quickly being drowned out by a wave of boos from those in attendance. Kanye then launched into a 15 minute political rant, because of course he did. Here’s a thorough play-by-play from music writer Logan Murdock, who was in attendance:

Unsurprisingly, some fans started throwing things at Kanye and some of it hit. This prompted him to threaten to cancel the show.

He finished things off by confirming that he still plans to run for president in 2020. Welcome to age of celebrity presidents, folks; we’re in for a long, strange, soul-crushing ride.
