Kanye West gets booed for pro-Trump rant at concert

Kanye West was ferociously booed after going on a pro-Donald Trump rant during his concert in California on Thursday night. Yes, California – one of America’s most liberal states which overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton.

The rapper’s surprising comments, given he even donated to Clinton’s campaign last year and Kim Kardashian publicly stated she intended to vote for Hillary – were filmed by a concert-goer.

“If I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump,” he told the crowd.

“I wanted to say that before the election, but they told me, ‘Whatever you do, don't say that aloud,’” he said, not revealing who “they” are.

“Not only did I not vote, but there were a lot of things I actually liked about Trump's campaign. His approach was f*cking genius - because it worked,” he continued.

Why didn’t he vote? Does Kim know about this? Is he just doing this to get back at Jay Z – one of Hillary Clinton’s most public supporters – after their recent beef?

Let’s chalk this one up to standard Yeezy attention seeking and think happy thoughts.
