During a 17-minute tirade on stage at his concert in Sacramento Saturday night, the rapper praised the president-elect for embracing political incorrectness throughout his campaign.

“Yeah, I’m taking his lead,” West told the crowd. “A lot of people here tonight felt like they lost. You know why? Because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.”

“Not only did I not vote, but there were a lot of things I actually liked about Trump’s campaign,” he said. “His approach was fucking genius — because it worked.”

“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” he continued.¬†“Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro.”


“Obama couldn’t make America great because he couldn’t be him to be who he was. Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn’t allowed to do this and still win. He had to be perfect. But being perfect don’t always change things.”

“I’m not always going to say things the perfect way, the right way, but I’m going to say how I feel. Get ready to have a field day, press. Get ready, get ready. Because the show’s over.”

West then dropped the microphone and left the stage after only playing three songs. The venue later announced fans would be issued full refunds.
