The 38-year-old is certainly going to tune in to watch Hillary debate against the other Democratic presidential hopefuls! “Kanye is going to be glued to tonight’s debate, especially after the 25 minute conversation he had with Hillary herself! He put in a call to her cell phone and wished her ‘good luck’ tonight and offered her a little advice, or a pep talk if you will,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He said ‘rise above the occasion like I always do, Hils.'” That wasn’t all the advice ‘Ye had for the 67-year-old.
“He told her that he knows ‘exactly what it’s like when all eyes are on you. Everyone’s expecting you to fail or say something that’s not politically correct.,'” the insider continued. “He even told her to ‘be yourself’ and explained to her that if she still needs a vice president, he’d love to take the job for the experience before he runs his own 20/20 campaign.” That was a very bold move on Kanye’s part. We wonder what Hillary thought of that!
T.I. Disses Hillary, Doesn’t Think President Should Be A Woman
While Hillary may have Kanye’s support, she doesn’t have T.I.‘s, 35. In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid during The Whoolywood Shuffle on Shade 45, the chat started to get political and the rapper started to share his views. “Not to be sexist,” T.I. said right before he said something sexist, “I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because — every other position that exists, a woman could do well. But, the president?” T.I. just shook his head. Not too long after the interview went public and people started reacting to T.I.’s views, the rapper issued an apology to Hillary via Twitter.
