SNL’s Pete Davidson Rips Kanye West’s Pro-Trump Rant, Dons ‘Make Kanye 2006 Again’ Hat

SNL’s Pete Davidson joined Weekend Update crew on Saturday Night Live to rip Kanye West for his pro-Trump speech at the end of his last week’s performance.

The pro-Trump speech was not aired.

“What Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, like most awkward things I’ve ever seen here,” Davidson said.

Referring to West’s MAGA hat he said: “He started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it. He wore it all week. Like, nobody told him not to wear it. Like I wish I bullied you. I wish I would have suggested that, you know, it might upset some people, like, your wife or every black person ever.”

Davidson, who has been open about his own struggle with mental illness added, “Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass, okay?”

Davidson ended his rant by donning a ‘Make Kanye 2006 Again’ hat of his own.
