Kanye West Doubled Down On His Endorsement Of Trump In Back to Back Concerts

Still fresh from drawing flak from the mainstream media and getting booed by some fans during his Thursday concert for his stunning revelation that he was for President-elect Trump,

rapper Kanye West boldly upped the ante once more when he made fresh and controversial comments in his Saturday night concert in California.

West interrupted his performance to launch a 17-minute speech of rants and ramblings, but also provocative political commentary.

No one was spared from the rapper's sentiments and ire, radio programmers, MTV, his friends ,and musical collaborators Jay Z and Beyonce and Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg.

But the most impactful tirade he left for this election's biggest loser- Hillary Clinton.

While he aired personal grievances about the other artists and players in the musical industry, West gave a rather enlightened and on point commentary slash analysis on what the recent election has taught us.

" It's a new world, Hillary Clinton, it's a new world”,as West proclaimed from a floating platform stage above the crowd. And then he went more on to say, " feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in America felt a way and they showed you how they felt."

West repeated his praise for Trump and even likened himself to the new President, saying he is taking the lead from the Republican winner.

The performer abruptly ended his concert in Golden 1 Center in Sacramento with a microphone drop, after performing only three songs. Some upset fans took to social media to share their thoughts.

The controversial artist and husband to equally high profile newsmaker celebrity Kim Kardashian, interrupted his performance during his Thursday concert in San Jose, California to launch a 40-minute political rant.

That was not the first time the Fade rapper has done that as he has also injected political commentary to past performances.

What stood out in his recent concert was his admission that while he did not bother to vote, had he voted, he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump.

He even went on to say that there were a lot of things that he liked about Trump's campaign.

West said he was truly impressed with Trump's campaign because of his " genius approach" and how such approach worked leading him to victory.

The performing artist likewise revealed he had long wanted to express his support for Trump but he was advised not to do it. West did not specify who forbid him from making his support for Trump public. But it is easy to assume his management and handlers may have something to do with the decision for West to remain just a silent Trump supporter during the campaign.

Curiously, West donated $2,700 to Clinton's campaign last year and took a selfie with the then Democratic candidate and wife Kim Kardashian, a vocal Hillary supporter and "fan".

At the MTV Music Video Awards in August last year, West made the interesting statement that he would run for president in 2020.

In his Thursday concert, the rapper underscored that he believes in equality, women's rights, and gay rights including gay marriage, or that black lives matter. He was blunt about racism, saying the world is truly racist and it would do good for people to just get over that fact.

In any case, the performer has liberated himself with his back to back admission of support for Trump in his concerts despite the risks.
