If T.I. doesn't want to support Hillary Clinton because he doesn't agree with her policies, that's totally his prerogative. During a radio appearance with DJ Whoo Kid on Sirius XM, T.I. said he wasn't going to support Hillary, which would have been fine if politics had anything to do with it (literally, anything!), but the reason he said he can't support her is...well, extremely disappointing to put it lightly.
"Not to be sexist but," he began. And you already know where this is going, because anytime someone begins a sentence with "not to be :::fill in the blank:::" it's DEFINITELY going to be that.
"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," he explained. Oh, thanks for that. So just to be clear, you're cool with us being anything except the most important office in the land? Because then no matter how important or powerful we get, there is always a male President to keep us in check?
"But, the president? It's kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, like, cemented decisions – and then later, it's kind of like it didn't happen, or they didn't mean for it to happen," he elaborated (and remember that line in a second, you'll see why).
"And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain't ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman]," he concluded.
Ok, now remember that whole 'making rash decisions emotionally' and then trying to make it like it didn't happen or you didn't mean for it to happen thing? After his comments set off the digital equivalent of a nuclear explosion on Twitter, T.I. did EXACTLY that, writing:
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.— T.I. (@Tip) October 13, 2015
