Rapper Kanye West delivered a pro-Trump speech complete with a bright red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat at the end of his Saturday Night Live performance, but it never made it on air.
Following a performance of his song “Ghost Town,” West grabbed the mic and began discussing how a right-leaning “black man in America” is supposed keep their thoughts to themselves.
He ranted about the African-American community lending their support for Democrat plans to keep the black community on welfare and take fathers out of the home.
“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?” he asked a stunned crowd. “That’s a Democratic plan.”
You have to tip your hat to the man making statements like that in front of a liberal New York crowd.
West continued by relaying stories about ‘white people’ asking him how he could support President Trump when “he’s racist.”
“If I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
The comments echoed those of the President himself who once railed against social justice warriors in the NFL saying if they believe America is so racist, perhaps they should leave the country.
SNL alum Chris Rock recorded West’s comments, snickering and saying “Oh my God,” as West delivered his speech.
He uploaded the incident to Instagram.
President Trump took notice of West’s speech. He blasted SNL for morphing into a completely humorless television show in the last several years, more so since he came on the political scene.
“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm,” Trump blasted. “It is just a political ad for the Dems.”
The President hinted that Kanye wore his MAGA hat “despite being told ‘No,’” and praised him for “leading the charge.”
He immediately followed that up with a gentle reminder that African-American unemployment during his tenure has reached historically low numbers.
So if African-American unemployment is now at the lowest number in history, median income the highest, and you then add all of the other things I have done, how do Democrats, who have done NOTHING for African-Americans but TALK, win the Black Vote? And it will only get better!

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk also praised West for his speech.
“This is an amazingly profound cultural moment,” he said during an interview on Fox & Friends. “He has been blazing this trail, saying it’s OK to think freely. It’s OK to oppose the status quo.”
This past season, SNL did a parody in which Kanye’s free-thought rants got everybody killed because they couldn’t contain their outrage at his ‘crazy’ comments.
West has been celebrating liberation from the liberal think tank that is the entertainment industry and Hollywood, while his peers have been openly mocking and denouncing him. His SNL speech was a microcosm of that – a pro-Trump speech while the liberal crowd boos and actors like Rock laugh at him.
