Kanye West shocked Hollywood by announcing he backed Donald Trump.
The superstar rapper took a lot of flack from his fellow entertainers when he professed his support for our president.
And you won’t believe the pro-Trump move that West pulled on one of the biggest liberal stages.
Kanye West is one of the greatest rappers of his generation.
But liberals were furious with him when they found out West is a full-on President Trump supporter.

In April, West publicly admitted to that on Twitter.
That’s why it was a surprise that Saturday Night Live invited him on the show for the 44th season’s premiere.
The episode largely attacked Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Matt Damon impersonated him in the opening.
And then there was another digital short about drunk high school kids at a party that was clearly about Kavanaugh’s alleged parties.
Kanye West performed the typical two songs like every musician.
But at the end of the show during curtain call, West donned his Make America Great Again hat.
It did not go over well.
The host, Adam Driver, thanked the cast and then when he said Kanye West’s name, everyone ran off stage, which left the rapper alone on stage
West performed a third song called “Ghost Town.”
After the song, West delivered an impromptu speech about Trump instead of ending the show.

West passionately said, “I wanna cry right now, black man in America, supposed to keep what you’re feelin’ inside right now… The blacks want always Democrats…you know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare… does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
He couldn’t be more right about that.
What did former President Barack Obama do for African Americans during his two terms?
Keep in mind that the Black Lives Matter Movement happened under his watch.
Conversely, what’s happened under Trump?
The economy is booming and African American unemployment is at an all-time low.
West also pleaded, “There’s so many times I talk to a white person and [they] say, ‘How could you like Trump, he’s racist?’ Well, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
Liberals act like racism never existed until Trump was elected president.
That’s an absurd notion.
When West spoke about Trump, his speech was met with resounding boos from the audience.

Of course they would boo, their audience is almost entirely liberal.
West wisely called for a “dialogue, not a diatribe.”
Then he ended it with “even though some of y’all don’t agree.”
It’s important to note that NBC decided against airing West’s speech.
People in the audience recorded it and then posted it on social media.
One of them was standup comedian, Chris Rock, who can be heard saying “Oh my God,” while West spoke.
He posted it on his Instagram account and it went viral almost immediately.
It’s unfortunate that this is America now.
They refuse to listen to why you support Trump.
Trump also commented on West’s speech with a tweet.
Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!

More Hollywood elitists should listen to West.
If they did that, they’d be a lot happier and wouldn’t suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
