In today’s “Why Do They Insist on Asking Certain Rappers Important Questions” news, T.I. gave some interesting thoughts about Hillary Clinton’s run for president. And in true chauvinistic fashion, T.I. didn’t hold back.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he 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. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
But on a positive note, T.I. also said he couldn’t support Donald Trump because he’s racist.
“He’s interesting and I feel his the best showman of them all. And I do feel that if he is sincerely concerned about the economy of America and the working public, he would be the best person to flip the money that we have […] But you know, his racist remarks and all of his off-color statements and all that shit it makes it impossible to be completely supportive of him. 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 cash no vote for him.”
In all seriousness, I don’t care about anything T.I. has to say until he apologizes for giving the world Iggy. And for those who are actually wondering if he can even vote, yes…he can. In Georgia, felons are given their voting rights back after the completion of their sentence.
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
