You Don’t Want It with Hov, Tomi.
During an appearance on Netflix’s My Guest Needs No Introduction, Jay-Z was honest when discussing his feelings about Donald Trump. Per Hov, Trump is “bringing out an ugly side of America that we wanted to believe was gone, but it’s still here and we still gotta deal with it. We have to have the tough conversations; we have to talk about the N-word, we have to talk about why white men are so privileged in this country.”
Enter Tomato Lozenge, who apparently felt a way about what he had to say. “JAY-Z, it’s pretty ironic that you think Donald Trump is a racist when you campaigned for Hillary Clinton! Remember that?” she said on Fox News. “That would be Hillary Clinton, the woman who called young Black Americans ‘superpredators.’ The one who stood by Bill when signed the $30 billion crime bill that imposed the death penalty on dozens more crimes and mandated life sentences for some three-time offenders.”
She then told him to “go back to rapping your filthy lyrics and celebrating your drug-dealing resume, and let Donald Trump make America great again for us all.”
Girl, if you don’t…
