SAN JOSE, Calif. — Kanye West was booed by fans at the SAP Pavilion in San Jose on Thursday night who also tossed articles of clothing when he launched into a long political tirade telling fans that he didn’t vote in the election but would have supported Donald Trump.

“If I would have voted,” the hip-hop star said, “I would have voted for Trump.”

West’s remarks came as part of a ponderous show in which he regularly interrupted his songs to offer social and political commentary, as he mused about running for president himself in 2020. Fans weren’t having it; some actually threw shoes, T-shirts and baseball caps at the star (one cap that Kanye wore — and complained about — carried the name of Drake’s 2016 album Views) and used the long interludes to create online memes with titles such as “STFU and Rap!”

And, apparently, we’re not talking about a case of hindsight here. Trump’s actually had West’s vote for sometime — that is, of course, if he had actually decided to cast it.

“I wanted to say that before the election, but they told me, ‘Whatever you do, don’t say that aloud,’” West explained.

The Grammy-winning rapper’s comments also spoke about how he admired the Trump campaign.

“Not only did I not vote, but there were a lot of things I actually liked about Trump’s campaign,” said the hip-hop star, who latter added: “His approach was (expletive) genius — because it worked.”
