Artist Kanye West has been vilified by Democrats the country over for openly supporting President Donald Trump, stemming back to a meeting at Trump tower immediately following the election.
Since late 2016, West has continued to remain pro-Trump and doesn’t care who knows it.
During the season 44 premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” Kanye, wearing his MAGA cap, took to center stage to deliver a speech about his thoughts on the commander-in-chief – but nobody was able to see it because it took place after the show had ended.

Host Adam Driver reportedly walked off stage.
Kanye called out Hollywood liberals and many more, claiming “90% of News are liberal. 90% of TV, LA, NY writers and rappers.”

After guest host Adam Driver signed off, Kanye grabbed the mic and turned the stage into a bully pulpit, bitterly complaining producers were trying to muzzle him and deny him free speech and expression.
He complained the liberal news media along with others were painting a one-sided picture of the political and social landscape in America. Kanye vowed no one would tell him what he could say or think.
Adam Driver reportedly walked off stage after he awkwardly stood in the corner.

From New York Post:
“I wanna cry right now, black man in America, supposed to keep what you’re feeling inside right now,” he sang as he paced the stage.
He continued: “The blacks want always Democrats you know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan.”
Then he turned to his support of Trump.
“There’s so many times I talk to like a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
As one could imagine, Kanye was booed.
After receiving sparse claps, West continued, “And what this shows is we can’t be controlled by monolithic thought. You can’t always have when you have a black subject matter like Cosby that you have to have a black comedian talk about it.”
Motioning to SNL funnyman Michael Che, West said, “You know what I mean?”
West, who replaced Ariana Grande as the musical guest after she had to drop out, said, “It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies.”
