Azealia Banks, a rapper known for for making nasty and outrageous racial comments — most recently about Sarah Palin — expressed her support for Donald Trump for president on Twitter over the weekend.

Banks posted a series of tweets on Saturday afternoon,  beginning with: “I REALLY want Donald Trump to win the election.”

She told her Twitter followers that her predictions about the presidential race were true: “I told you guys Bernie Sanders didn’t have the clout. i told you all he wasn’t going to be the nominee.”

In her series of tweets, Banks defended Trump and his outspoken opinions. “Trump is an asshole but he’s not been groomed and programmed on some mkultra tip to DO & SAY what the establishment wants him to,” she began and added “Trump just wants the U.S to be lavish…. for all of us. I can f— with that.”

When a fan responded with “Trump is blatantly racist,” she defended his viewpoint and also copped to be a “racist” herself.

“So am I ! …. lol. Racism/Racialism is sewn into the fabric of our nation. It’s just who the f— we are,” she started, followed by “Trying to be all PC and pretending as if we aren’t racial/racist is not good for culture. Censorship is boring” and “Censorship is trash. Television and Movies are even boring now because of it. No one can say anything anymore.”

Just like Donald Trump, Banks has made a habit of making crazy and controversial statements in public. She’s attracted negative media attention in the past for calling men she doesn’t like “f**gots” and demanding $100 trillion in slavery reparations. In an obscene and disturbing Twitter-rant last month, she called for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be gang-raped by black men. When Palin threatened to sue Banks over the comments, the rapper responded with a message that included: “f*ck Sarah Palin and “f*ck whitey.”

While she admires the fact that Trump is unfiltered and un-focus-grouped, she has nothing but contempt for career politician Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary has been GROOMED for the presidency. she’s another one of the establishments robots here to carry out an agenda,” she tweeted. “Hillary talks to black people as if we’re children or pets. i can’t stand herrrrrrr.”

In her depressing and confused rant, Banks said everyone is racist — including herself — and seemed to defend racism.

“Just by being an American and subscribing to the ‘American Dream’ we all are INHERENTLY racial/racist,” Banks posted.

 

Azealia Banks was born in 1991 and grew up in an abusive single-parent home in Harlem, New York. At the tender age of 14, she moved out to live with her older sister. A few years later, she dropped out of high school so she could pursue her dream of becoming a recording artist.
