Kanye West has made no secret about his affection for President Donald Trump and his refusal to walk in lockstep with liberals in Hollywood and entertainment. And he had a few things to say about it when he appeared on Saturday Night Live. Although they cut his feed, what he said is still getting out there.
West was part of the musical entertainment for the show and he sported a “Free Hoover” shirt as well as a Make America Great Again hat.
He’s come under fire from the left before for expressing support for Trump and daring to hang out with and praise conservatives.
And on Saturday, despite the fact that NBC cut West off before he finished his musical performance, he still got out what he wanted to say after to the audience, although no longer on the air.
From Daily Caller:
West, whose support for people like Candace Owens and President Donald Trump has stirred social media to the boiling point on a number of occasions, began by telling the audience that he had been pressured to not appear onstage wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat.
“They bully me. They bully me backstage and said don’t go out there with that hat on. Okay. I’m going to listen to y’all now.” Then, putting the familiar red hat back on his head, he continued, “Or I’m gonna put my Superman cape on. And that means you can’t tell me what to do.”
He said that media pushes the myth that everyone is against Trump.
“90 percent of news are liberals,” he said. “So it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so one-sided.”
Halfway through his speech, he sang, “I feel so free.”
Here’s a portion of the speech:

He then went on to throw down a little history.
“Blacks weren’t always Democrats,” he explained. “You know it’s like a plan they did, to get the fathers out of the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
He also called for a “dialogue” to help things to change.
