Donald Trump’s Reason Why Kanye West Isn’t Performing At His Inauguration Is Pretty Racist
Donald Trump's inauguration is this Friday, January 20th and the world is waiting to see America burn to the ground as the 45th President of the United States is going to be some arrogant celebrity with no political experience. That's just my opinion though (bring forth the pitch forks, people). With the inauguration being one of the most talked about events coming up, people are super curious as to who is going to be performing at the ceremony, seeing as so many celebrities have been outspoken against the President-Elect.
For months now, people speculated that Kanye West was going to be performing at Trump's inauguration ceremony, seeing as he has been progressively showing more support for the 45th President as time has gone on. It all started when he included Trump in his controversial "Famous" music video.
Then, he spoke out at a concert for a pretty long period of time admitting that he didn't vote in the 2016 Presidential Election – but if he did, he would have voted for Donald Trump.
He also went to Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump after he suffered a psychological breakdown at the end of November. West spent eight days in a psychiatric facility in Los Angeles, California before he was released under doctor's observations. He then traveled to New York City to meet with the future President of the United States, discussing numerous matters of "humanity," according to West.
Although it seems that all roads would have pointed to West performing at the ceremony (and boy, would people watch that) it turns out, Trump's team has reported he will not be performing. But, the reason is pretty racist...which, of course, is not surprising.
Tom Barrack, chair of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, told CNN,
"He considers himself a friend of the President-elect, but it’s not the venue. The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it’s perfect, it’s going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy, but we just haven’t asked him to perform. We move on with our agenda."
Take a second to re-read that.
"Typically and traditionally American..."
Does that mean that Kanye West does not fit into the criteria of traditionally and typically American? Why is that exactly? I'll let you decide.
