Yet another star is joining the list of celebs criticizing Kanye West’s unusual love for Donald Trump. Lena Waithe discussed the possible motivation for the rapper’s support for the President and the bizarre rants that he’s been delivering.
While in attendance at Variety’s Power of Women: Los Angeles event, the Emmy winner talked to ET, explaining that ‘I think fame is an incredible drug.’
Ye seems to insist that his political stance is what he believes is the best for the country but Waithe thinks a huge part of his support for Trump is the rapper trying to get more attention.
‘I think he’s looking for something to grab onto and I Trump is all he can grab. But he will realize when Trump drowns, he will be out there floating. The truth is, [when that happens], black people are going to come in and take hold of him as we are all wanting to do,’ the woman told the outlet.
Furthermore, Black-ish star Jenifer Lewis joined in the chat with ET as well, sharing her own point of view as far as Kanye’s mental health and rants are concerned.
‘Kanye’s mentally ill and I’m going to try to reach him. I have bipolar disorder myself and he’s very twisted and very ill and I feel very sorry for him,’ Lewis shared.
So what would she tell Kim Kardashian’s husband if she met him face to face?
‘I would simply say, ‘Baby, you have got to go and get help.’ He needs to get himself together in order to raise those children without all this madness going on around him.’ Preach!
