Ye shows Trump support on Saturday Night Live.
Kanye’s support for Donald Trump has remained consistent for the past two years. Ye was first seen endorsing Trump after the election in 2016. Earlier this year, he extended the association by wearing the “Make America Great Again” hat. Ye’s endorsement of the MAGA hat left a bad taste in the mouths of a number of Kanye fans, especially African Americans. As someone who once famously quoted, “George Bush does not care about black people,” he is comfortable supporting a blatantly white supremacist.
Last month, Ye apologized for his slavery comments and the MAGA hat, on the WGCI Chicago radio show.
“I’m sorry for people who were let down by that moment,” said Ye.
Well exactly a month after the apology, he is back to sporting the MAGA hat in support of Trump. During his SNL finale last night, he went on a pro-Trump rant. The rant was not aired because it went over the scheduled time for SNL. Instead, it was recorded by a number of attendees.
“They laughing at me,” said Yeezy. “They bully me backstage… and then they say I’m in the sunken place.”
The setting seemed uncomfortable, as many SNL cast members rolled their eyes and shook their heads in obvious disagreement as Kanye continued. Chris Rock was able to catch the rant on his Instagram Live.
““There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
Aside from his pro-Trump rant, fans are still waiting for his upcoming album, Yandhi. While on SNL Ye performed his hit single, “I love it” as well as “We Got Love” with Lil Pump and Teyana Taylor respectively.
