T.I. sat down with DJ Whoo Kid for an interview when he was asked about the current presidential nominees. The rapper didn’t hold back when sharing his thoughts on Hillary Clinton.
“I can’t vote for her, not to be sexist, but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists I think a woman could do well. But president – it’s kind of like – I just know that women make rash decisions, emotionally, and 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 said.
Wondering what the hell he means by that? Thankfully he gave an example.
“I would sure just hate to set off a nuke…” he said, implying a female president would make that decision without considering the consequences. This comes from a guy who has served two terms in jail for probation violation and U.S. federal weapons charges.
“They won’t be able to negotiate – the world ain’t ready yet,” he said about women in the White House.
DJ Whoo Kid also chimed in with some sexism, saying Clinton is “a big vagina to put in the office.”
So T.I. is not voting for Clinton, but what about Donald Trump?
“I do feel 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,” he said.
“His racist remarks, all of his off-colour statements, you know all that shit, it makes it impossible to be completely supportive of him but just knowing what he’s done for business, you know what I’m saying, for himself, if he intends to do that for America, I think it would be beneficial.”
So better to have a racist in office than a woman, according to T.I.
UPDATE: T.I. has since apologized for his statements. He tweeted: “My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.”
Now who’s making rash decisions?
