As the credits were rolling at the end of this week’s Saturday Night Live Show, Kanye West, wearing a MAGA ha, began praising the president. The powers that be went into a panic and cut the feed, lest their viewers would hear positive things about the president. Kanye didn’t stop and made his speech to the cast and the audience.
Kanye said: “They bully me. They bully me backstage and said don’t go out there with that hat on. Okay. I’m going to listen to y’all now. Or I’m gonna put my Superman cape on. And that means you can’t tell me what to do.”
NBC cut the feed and went to credits, running short on time, before West finished his musical performance — but West went on to deliver a speech in spite of the fact that he was no longer on the air.
West, whose support for people like Candace Owens and President Donald Trump has stirred social media to the boiling point on a number of occasions, began by telling the audience that he had been pressured to not appear onstage wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat.
West went on to explain why it was so easy, especially in Hollywood, to believe that everyone felt the same way about Trump. “90 percent of news are liberals,” he said. “So it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so one-sided.”
Halfway through his speech, he sang, “I feel so free.”
West then laid out one of the reasons he thought blacks shouldn’t trust Democrats.
“Blacks weren’t always Democrats,” he explained. “You know it’s like a plan they did, to get the fathers out of the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
After making his positive comments about Owens and Trump, the left called for a boycott of his new album. It went to number one in 73 counties.
