During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” the host went off on Yeezy for saying that he didn’t vote during last year’s presidential election.
“I would like [Kim Kardashian] to say to him, ‘Listen, don’t you ever think that saying you didn’t vote was a good idea,'” she said. “Don’t you ever think that that was good. I don’t care who you would have voted for. People died for your right to not vote, you idiot boy. You foolish boy, idiot boy. Don’t ever say that again.”While Whoopi may not care who Kanye would have voted for, co-host Joy Behar does. In fact, she said she wants to see Kim K argue with Yeezus about his affinity for President-elect Donald Trump, who ‘Ye said he would have voted for if he’d voted at all. “What I would like to see [on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’] is Kim arguing with Kanye over you know who,” she said, “because Kanye said he would have voted for him. That I would like to see.”
This isn’t the first time Mr. West’s been a hot topic on “The View.” Last February, Whoopi denounced his famous Taylor Swift interruption at the 2009 MTV VMAs. “No one has the right to hop up on the stage and tell you you didn’t earn your stuff and you’re not good enough,” she said.
That same month, Goldberg defended Yeezy while seemingly criticizing his wife’s family. “His mother raised him to believe in himself,” she said. “I believe she said to him, ‘If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will.’ She’s not there anymore. And in that family that he’s married into, they eat men. So, in order to maintain who you are, you have to have a strong ego.”Yeezus made waves last year when he met with Trump after endorsing the President-elect. “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” ‘Ye revealed. “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”
