T.I.: “I Can’t Vote For The Leader of The Free World To Be A Woman”

Because every sexist statement seems to begin with the phrase, “Not to be sexist, but…”

In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, T.I. spoke about presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. He said that there was no way he could vote for a woman for President of the United States. In his own words:

“Not to be sexist, but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But, the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally—they make very permanent, cemented decisions—and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. …the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to get the Lochness Monster elected before [a woman].”

There’s a lot to unpack here. I’m quite caught up in the fact that he had the audacity to state that a fictional water beast with limited, if not any at all, cognitive capabilities is somehow more competent to rule the United States than a woman. While he recognizes that “it’s not right,” he is “just saying.”

Thank you, grand scholar T.I.; your input is noted.

I’m wondering how T.I. thinks warfare works or how he thinks women process their emotions and thoughts. Do you think the president walks around with a briefcase that has a big red button that says “PUSH” and immediately fires all our nukes at once? There’s a reason why we have a checks and balances system, Mr. T.I.. Best brush up on your knowledge of the United States government lest you make another idiotic comment like this.

If you’re still scratching your head or in utter shock by this quote, fret not-he said more! He continues in the interview, stating that he can see Trump being “beneficial” to America if he’s “sincerely concerned about the economy.” However, he will not vote for the man because Trump is a racist.

Whew, I was worried.

He later apologized for his comments made via Twitter. You can view the tweet below. Quite frankly, T.I. doesn’t strike me as the type of guy who would use the word, “unequivocally.”

My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.

It is still unknown who T.I. will vote for.
