Rapper T.I.: Hillary Lost Because ‘We Just Didn’t Do Enough’ For Her
Raper T.I. put the blame on himself and others for Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat by Donald Trump in the election.
The 36-year-old rapper told TMZ in an on camera interview on Thursday that he is willing to accept Trump as the president of the United States and had a message for the protesters who are upset about the election results. (RELATED: Rapper: If You Support Donald Trump, ‘Don’t Buy My Music’)
“All of the people who are up in arms about it, myself included, you know we just didn’t do enough in enough time to have things fall in our area,” the rapper said. “So now I think it’s about focusing on how we keep ourselves out of harm’s way. How we kind of unite for the next two years, because in the next two years there’s going to be some more voting that needs to be done.”(RELATED: Rapper: The Loch Ness Monster Could Be President Before A Woman)
“Local elections are the most effective elections,” he added. “Those are things that directly affect the people in the community. Now all we can do is accept the changes that have been made to this country.”
“I’m going to miss Obama,” he continued. “We’re going to have to make the best with what we’ve got. Just stay out of the grass, out of the hands of the man, and we’ll be alright.”
Before the election the rapper found himself in trouble after he said during a radio interview that women were too emotional to be president.
“Not to be sexist, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” the rapper said during a radio interview.”Just because every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well.”
“But the president, it’s kind of 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.”
He later apologized for those comments.
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
