Hip hop boss T.I. has been ducking all week after taking a lot of incoming fire for making insensitive and asinine statements about how he couldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton for president because she’s a woman — and women don’t make good policy decisions because of their emotions.
“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,” said the Grand Hustle creator. “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 amount of blow-back he received would have peeled his wig if it weren’t for the fact that he sports little to no hair. But “The Family Hustle” star was leaning a little left after Oprah took a swing at the Trouble Man. When she learned what he said, she stopped what she was doing, stared at the questioner for a pause, then said
“Well, you know what I say to that. I wanna say honey chile hush your mouth! You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Tip was not about to let the situation go — even though he probably should have — but he wanted to explain himself. And he had a word for Oprah.
