T.I. won’t be voting Hillary Clinton or Carly Fiorina for president because the 35-year-old rapper thinks women are too emotional to hold such a job.
“Not to be sexist, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” T.I. said during a radio interview Monday. “Just because every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well.”
“But the president, it’s kind of 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.” (RELATED: Actress Launches Gun Control Initiative: ‘I’ve Had It’)
“And I sure would hate to set off a nuke,” he said. “You ain’t gonna be able to negotiate the right kind of foreign policy. The world ain’t ready yet.”
“I think you might be able to get the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [a woman]. It’s not right, but I’m just saying I don’t think,” he said. (RELATED: Here’s How Ben Carson Feels About Kanye Calling Him ‘Brilliant’)
T.I. said he likes Donald Trump the best because he thinks the Republican candidate has the ability to fix the economy.
“I feel he is the best showman of them all,” he said. “And I do feel that if he is sincerely concerned about the economy of America and the working public, he would be the best person to flip the money that we have, take it and flip it.”
However, T.I. said he can’t fully support Trump because of his “off-color statements.” (RELATED: Kanye West Just Called This Republican Candidate ‘Brilliant’)
Update: T.I. apologized for his comments on Twitter.
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
