Hip-Hop artist T.I. appeared on ABC’s “The View” Thursday to conceivably talk about his new program, The Family Hustle. Instead, he trashed President Trump, cracked on Trump aide Omarosa Manigault‘s teeth. He spoke minimally about his new show on VH1.
The female hosts questioned him about defending rapper Snoop Dogg pointing a gun at a fake clown Trump head in a music video released in March. Trump struck back on Twitter, saying, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!”
T.I. blasted Trump with language he said was unfit for “The View.” But he offered a toned down version of his beliefs and did not include the phrase “diarrhea face.”
“I feel like Snoop Dogg generationally and myself as an artist …came from poverty and used my life and talent to bring myself and my family up out of the wreckage and create a new way of life for ourselves,” he said. “…You are not going to come and challenge or try to belittle or demean us and our advancements. Whatever Snoop said he has a right to say and it is protected by the Constitution. …I feel like we have to protect our egos and the people who mean something to us and our community and our culture.”
Here’s what T.I. posted on Instagram:
“Snoop Dogg is a fuckin legend u fucking tangerine tanned muskrat scrotum skin, lacefront, possum fur wig wearing, alternative fact, atomic dog diarrhea face ass man!!! Leave our legends names out ya fuckin old ass puppy piss smelling mouth & continue to focus on dividing minorities, building barriers, alienating immigrants, & fuckin this country up like u been doin… #UWannaBeDictator #PresidentLevelFuckBoy”
Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in, “President Trump says Omarosa’s role is to bridge a gap with the African American community.”
Which was easy bait for the remark that came next.
T.I. snapped, “She can’t even bridge the gap in her teeth, you know what I’m saying?”
The hosts held their laughter, but the live audience did not.
Omarosa, who was Trump’s Director of African-American outreach during the campaign and now works as a White House liaison, technically has no gap in her teeth.
But she does have a history of badmouthing Daily Mail‘s Piers Morgan‘s teeth.
In 2008, she appeared with Morgan on The Celebrity Apprentice.
Morgan accused her of asking him to have a “showmance” with her so they could make it to the end.
She says he came on to her to hatch a plan to win the show, not the other way around.
“I was looking at him, and his disgusting rotten yellow teeth, and I just couldn’t believe it. I was completely disgusted by the idea,” she told the New York Post.
T.I. criticized talk show host and comedian Steve Harvey and singer Kanye West for getting all publicly cozy with Trump. Harvey met with POTUS in Trump Tower in January. West met with him at the same location in December.
“Before we can get anywhere with this president person in office, we have to address all of the disresect and degrading that was done during the campaign, you know what I mean?” T.I. said. “…What about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community and being the poster child for white supremacy? …Before you address that, there is no other conversation.”
The ladies lapped up T.I.’s anti-Trump sentiments.
Not one of them pushed back on the personal attack on Omarosa’s choppers.
