Kanye West went on a rant at his show in San Jose last night (what's new, right?)!  What was a little surprising was what he had to say about politics, and specifically about Donald Trump.  He said he did not vote in the election (c'mon Kanye, set a better example!), but he would have voted for Trump if he had!  Here are a couple Kanye quotes from last night I found interesting.  “I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y’all sang it at the top of your lungs.  That doesn’t mean that you’re a Trump supporter. That just means you ok with a celebrity having their own opinion. Or that someone else is ok to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion but you can still like that person or still like that person’s music.”  Very true, Kanye.  And what about this one?   "Rappers are philosophers of our now, celebrities are the influencers of our now, just look at the president, he wasn't in politics & won."

I'm going to see Kanye at Golden 1 Center tomorrow night, and I'm really looking forward to seeing if he drops any more Kanye wisdom on us! haha  If he does, I'll tweet it out, so follow me if you'd like... @CKontheRadio
