Rapper endorses Trump, and Hollywood isn’t the monolith vote for Democrats it used to be


By now you may have seen these tweets from rapper Azealia Banks (I know, I know…I don’t know who she is either) endorsing Donald Trump, joining  what seems to be a larger than normal group of celebrities (we’ll do a post on exactly who at some point in the future) opting for something other than a Democrat.

Donald Trump can add another member of Hollywood to his list of supporters.

On Saturday afternoon, singer Azealia Banks expressed her support for the GOP candidate in a spree of tweets, kicking off the conversation with, “I REALLY want Donald Trump to win the election.”

She told her Twitter followers that her predictions about the presidential race were true: “I told you guys Bernie Sanders didn’t have the clout. i told you all he wasn’t going to be the nominee.”

In her series of tweets, Banks defended Trump and his outspoken opinions. “Trump is an asshole but he’s not been groomed and programmed on some mkultra tip to DO & SAY what the establishment wants him to,” she began and added, “Trump just wants the U.S to be lavish … for all of us. I can f— with that.”

In all honesty, this endorsement by itself doesn’t mean too much because Trump has had a ton of crossover appeal, particularly because he’s not all that conservative. But here are some from the aftermath of Banks’ tweets that offer more of a real window into how anti liberal she might really be.

I’m probably not going to buy her music anytime in the next lifetime, but I like this lady!

Why? That’s simple. As Andrew Breitbart said in the video posted here (paraphrasing here), anyone who wants to stand against leftists I will join them in that bunker.
