Rap mogul Kanye West has confounded the music and entertainment industry over the past week for his embrace of pro-Trump policies, activists and campaign gear, and Maxine Waters thinks he should just shut up.
Kanyes swing to the right has not been received well by those on the other side of the aisle.
On Monday, Yeezy was back at it, tweeting statements from other people about Republicans freeing slaves and the perils of the welfare state and socialism.
Rep. Maxine Waters was asked by Politico about the rappers recent embrace of mainstream conservatism.
She responded by saying that West talks out of turn and that he should think twice about politics, and maybe not have so much to say.
Her full quote, according to Politico:
Kanye West is a very creative young man who has presented some of the most revolutionary material in the African-American community. But we also think that sometimes Kanye West talks out of turn and perhaps sometimes he needs some assistance in helping him to formulate some of his thoughts. We dont think that he actually means to do harm, but were not sure he really understands the impact of what hes saying, at the time that hes saying it and how that weighs on, particularly the African American community and for young people in general. And I think maybe he should think twice about politics, and maybe not have so much to say.
Waters was named one of the nations most corrupt members of congress by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
Oh, now black lib lawmakers are screaming Shut up and sing!
Several blacks now have told Kanye to shut up, but none of them have addressed his statements.
Well, I’ve heard we only want our entertainers to entertain; not be political pundits.
I am searching for the post where she told that reptilian hipster, Hogg to not talk about politics. Did I miss it?
Well... I hope that Kanye comes out swinging on this one, as she has certainly dissed him to a huge degree. Suggests that he needs help to think things through, etc. She might regret having said this. It is nice, though, to have her going after someone other than POTUS for a change.
That will never get old.
Pretty funny from a politician who stole James Brown’s hair!
If you can’t lock her up, shut her up.
He should tell Maxine to stop talking senile and crazy.
Can she name one person who ever asked her for assistance in formulating thoughts? And if there was, did they ever fully recover?
Since Maxine loves to run her fat trap, maybe she can answer this question..how does someone with her salary afford a 4 mil dollar house in Hancock Park
Kanye, Maxine thinks you belong on the same intellectual plantation she’s kept herself on. She knows you escaped, you’re free, and she resents that.
Maxine Waters doesn’t like black people (who step off the plantation).
“Don’t you go getting uppity, boy”
What she was thinking was “don’t get uppity boy”.
