T.I. Says He Will Not Vote For Hillary Clinton Because She’s A Woman
Rapper T.I. had some strong words regarding the upcoming 2016 Presidential election in terms of who he will not be voting for.
T.I. Says He Will Not Vote For Hillary Clinton
In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid on The Whoolywood Shuffle show on SiriusXM, the Atlanta native went on record to say that he would not vote for Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton for the sole fact that she is a woman. “Not to be sexist, but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” the rapper said. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But, the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen.”
He also went on during the interview to say that he has developed an interest in real estate mogul and Republican front runner Donald Trump based on economic positions saying Trump can be taken seriously if he is “sincerely concerned about the economy of America.” But T.I. stopped short of supporting Trump because of some of his comments on race. “His racist remarks and all of his off-color statements and all that shit … makes it impossible to be completely supportive of him,” the rapper added. “But just knowing what he’s done for business for himself, if he intends to do that for America, it would be beneficial. But I can’t cast no vote for him.”
After facing a backlash for his comments, he took to Twitter to make an apology.
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
