Kanye talks politics after SNL performance.

Kanye West delivered an impromptu speech defending his support for President Trump at the end of his “Saturday Night Live” gig, and received boos from the audience and so part of the members of the cast shake their heads in disapproval.

West, wearing a “Make America Great Again hat, put an end to his season premiere guest spot on the show with the performance of “Ghost Town.” But instead of just thanking the audience and walking off stage, the rapper went on a political tirade after the broadcast has ended. Clips posted by members of the public, including comedian Chris Rock, captured the speech.

“I want to cry now, black man in America, is supposed to keep what you’re feelin’ inside now…” West says with a melody plays in the background. “The blacks always want to be Democrats…you know, it’s like the plan that they did, to the father from the home and put them on welfare… does anyone know anything about it? That is a Democratic plan.”

In another clip, West continues, “There’s so many times I talk with a white person and [they] say,” How could you like Trump, he is a racist?’ Well, if I was worried about racism I would have moved out of America a long time ago.”

Wowwwww just 3 people clapped their hands. Chris Rock is laughing @kanyewest

He once again pledged to run for president in 2020 and called for a dialogue, not a diatribe” to events change in the future. He ended the speech by thanking the show “even though some of y’all don’t agree,” Variety reported.

Rock heard laughing in the background of his videos posted on his Instagram Stories. He says, “Oh, my God.” Many of the members of the cast behind the West be seen to keep their head down. Some roll their eyes and others shake their head.
