Lil B Endorses Bernie Sanders Over Hillary Clinton for President
Lil B sat down with CNN and explained why he's supporting Bernie Sanders for the 2016 Presidential Campaign and not Hillary Clinton, who he initially was backing.
"No one's really been saying anything about Hillary Clinton besides that she's a woman and running for office," he said. "To me, it's kind of like the same thing when Obama was running, but the difference is Obama seemed to have a more down-to-earth personality."
Lil B was once excited about the idea of a female president, especially if it was going to be Hillary Clinton. The Cali native is a big fan of the Clintons. He even dedicated a song to them titled, "Bitch I'm Bill Clinton," where he raps, "Shout-outs to Hillary Clinton. You gonna win that presidency." But is seems Lil B had a change of heart and dropped Hilary for Bernie Sanders.
"Once the people started telling me about Bernie Sanders and comparing what he was doing back in his younger days and what she was doing, it made me kind of look at her different -- not really respect her as much as I thought," said The BasedGod. Bernie Sanders also follows Lil B on Twitter. Lil B was later asked if he would vote for Clinton, to which he replied, "I want to feel her out ... I always look at where people started and I want to know what she has to say about that."
Lil B also spoke about Bernie Sanders tense interaction with "Black Lives Matter" demonstrators and the movement in general. When asked how do candidates get black voters to back them, Lil B said that if they are not connected to the community, they will fail. "To win African-American voters you have to feel them," and a lot of these candidates "don't understand what that means," he said. He added, "I wish people grew up in the hood and grew up with adversity and seen s---." Also watch his talk on CNN Politics below.
