Kanye effect? Another famous rapper emerges to enrage the left with the simple TRUTH

Powered by Topple

It seems Kanye West’s recent  return to Twitter and bold support of free thinking have inspired another rapper to do the same.

Chance the Rapper stepped in amid the liberal meltdown over West’s outspoken admiration of President Trump, and enraged a lot of leftists by stating a buried truth … being black doesn’t automatically make you a Democrat.

Chance’s tweet brought the expected immediate backlash from the left and some of his fans while the artist was showered with praise and support from Trump fans and freedom-lovers. Chance and West, both from Chicago,  collaborated on the 2016 album “The Life of Pablo.”

West triggered liberals last week when he praised black conservative commentator and Trump supporter Candace Owens and soon after, posted videos by “Dilbert” comic creator Scott Adams, another admirer of the president. Taking it to the next level, West also posted a picture of himself in a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and defended his relationship with Trump.

The president tweeted his thanks in return.

Meanwhile Chance the Rapper, whose real name is Chancellor Jonathan Bennett, had created his own social media frenzy with his comment about black voters and Democrats. The 23-year-old Grammy-winner was a supporter of Hillary Clinton, who won about 88 percent of the black vote. The rapper told Billboard before the 2016 election that “she has a certain sincerity that’s hidden by the media.”

“I’m not sure if it’s because she’s a woman or because Donald Trump just has a stronghold on the media at this time, but she’s unfairly treated. I can’t really speak on her policies but I feel a certain connection to Hillary Clinton that’s just not there with Donald Trump,” he said at the time.

Chance defended West’s pro-Trump comments on Twitter when Ebro Darden questioned if he may be out of touch with fellow Chicago-born rappers.

The rapper, who has been critical of Trump in the past, also tweeted his thoughts on the next president.

His fan-base was not thrilled with his remarks about black voters and many let him have it on Twitter.

But Chance also found many who were willing to listen and more still who praised his comment, including Donald Trump Jr. who defended West in a tweet linking to Chance’s comments.
