At this point it's clear that Azealia Banks will never stop expressing her opinions on Twitter, no matter how unpopular they are. She's equated the LGBT community to the KKK and has so many Twitter beefs with public figures that it's impossible to keep track anymore. She's fought with politicians like Sarah Palin as well as other music industry figures like Lady Gaga, Pharrell, and Iggy Azalea. It turns out that the support for Donald Trump she expressed back in February wasn't fleeting: Banks took to Twitter today to further explain why she's going to vote for the Republican frontrunner.
Banks started out this afternoon's series of tweets with a straightforward message just to set the record straight.
I REALLY want Donald Trump to win the election.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
Clearly anticipating the barrage of criticism headed her way, Banks began by patting herself on the back for her prescient abilities and then addressing Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.
Everything i predicted is Happening. I told you guys Bernie Sanders didn't have the clout. i told you all he wasn't going to be the nominee— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
hillary has been GROOMED for the presidency. she's another one of the establishments robots here to carry out an agenda— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
Then she honed in on what it is she appreciates about Trump: his tendency to freely speak his mind, even though he ends up offending plenty of people when he does. Sound familiar?
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.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
Getting a bit deeper into political theory, Banks went on to suggest that Trump is more anti-establishment than his Democratic competitors claim to be. Banks upholds that maybe Trump's just trying to make all of us rich along with him.
the "establishment" and it's plans/agenda's start and end with white supremacy. culturally, economically, literally and figuratively.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
Trump just wants the U.S to be lavish.... for all of us. I can fuck with that.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
After that, Banks hopped back to Clinton for a quick second, condemning the way the Democratic candidate talks to black people.
Hillary talks to black people as if we're children or pets. i can't stand herrrrrrr.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 7, 2016
Banks spent the rest of the afternoon retweeting her haters and responding to their comments. Pop star Dua Lipa interjected, "But Trump is blatantly racist," to which Banks responded, "So am I!...lol." Banks also mentioned she would Periscope about the issue later. Looks like we'll have to wait for that to get a better understanding of Banks' political opinions.
