Kanye West says Obama was “Opioids” to the Black community
Rapper Kanye West continued to speak out about his praise for Donald Trump and said Obama was “opioids” to the black community. West speaking in an interview on TMZ‘s Harvel Levin on Tuesday.
“Obama was our opioids. It made us feel like everything was good,” he said during the interview.
Kanye said that Obama was held in such high regard that he alienated himself from the lower class.
“The class war is one of the reasons why Trump won, because Obama was so high class that it stopped speaking to the middle and the lower class,” he said. “He’s so classy, and to break the class system, we have to start by loving ourselves.”
West said that he felt that Hollywood and the media had created a perception that black men had to be perfect, just like Obama, to be successful.
“This perfect idea of a superhero with Obama, or Michael Jordan — I want to show people that it is ok to screw up, and you still can make it through things,” he said.
West has taken a ton of heat for coming out and saying he loves President Trump. Last week he also chimed in on Obama saying he had 8 years and did nothing to help Chicago. Kanye speaking out so much could have something to do with him having 2 album’s coming out in June and he is getting a ton of publicity. But it is super entertaining seeing the left getting triggered by his tweets.
Kanye went on to say that he tells friends Obama did the same things as Trump but is held to a different standard.
“Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat, but when it’s 700 kids being killed in Chicago it’s O.K. … There’s been more focus and more marches about whites killing blacks than kids in Chicago killing each other,” he said.
West admitted that he got addicted to opioids after he got liposuction plastic surgery and they gave him opioid painkillers as part of his recovery.
