Kanye West, aka Ye, was booed during his speech in support of President Trump during his appearance on Saturday Night Live last night.
“They bullied me backstage,” said Kanye, who stepped in at the last-minute as a substitute for singer Ariana Grande.
“They said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me and then they said I’m in the sunken place,” Kanye complained.
“I think the universe has balance. 90 percent of news are liberal. 90 percent of TV, L.A., New York, writers, rappers, musicians, so it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so, one-sided. The blacks always want Democrats, you know, it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out of the home and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
Then Kanye began to sing, “I wanna cry right now, Black man in America, supposed to keep what you’re feeling inside right now.”
Kanye went on to defend his support for President Trump. “There’s so many times when I talk to, like, a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s a racist.’ Well, if I was concerned about racism, I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
As some in the audience began to applaud, others booed and one man yelled at Kanye.
SNL producers cut the live broadcast as Kanye began to criticize Democrats for removing Black men from the home and promoting welfare in Black America. But comedian Chris Rock posted Kanye’s speech on his Instagram Stories.
President Trump thanked Kanye for his ongoing support. “Thank you Kanye. Very cool!”
On Sunday, Kanye took to social media to explain why he wears his red MAGA hat.
“this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love”.
Kanye also announced he is returning to TMZ “100 strong” on Monday. He called for “strong beings dancers,” who are “unprogrammed to bring love”.
