Is it another case of foot-in-mouth syndrome, or will T.I. stick by this comment after the inevitable fallout? The Atlanta rapper appeared in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, and shared that unlike Pharrell Williams, a woman will not earn his vote in the 2016 presidential election.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he said. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
Apparently, the rash decisions of male leaders did not result in broken levees in New Orleans, a trillion-dollar deficit due to decades-old wars, and a huge gun control problem that results in mass shootings almost weekly.
In the interview, T.I. also shared his thoughts on presidential candidate Donald Trump, who he believes has a better shot at the White House than Hillary because he is “sincerely concerned about the economy of America.” But the Donald won’t earn Tip’s vote either, because his racist tirades are impossible to ignore.
Since his comments caused a firestorm on social media, T.I. apologized on Twitter:
