American Rapper Azealia Banks Says Trump Is ‘Cheapening the Presidency’ on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Azealia Banks, who recently dropped her Junior Sanchez-produced new single “Anna Wintour” was a guest on the Breakfast Club last Friday.

During the hour-long discussion, Banks touched on a number of highly discussable topics, including her former support of the neo-Nazi-sympathizer-in-chief.

“Everybody keeps trying to pin this love for Trump on me, [but] that wasn’t the point,” Banks, around the 28-minute mark, said. “It was more so just about the tax break. I feel like the system’s the same on both sides, you know, no matter who you’re voting for. The American Dream, it rests on a systematically oppressed underclass . . . That’s just the name of the game, so either way you go, somebody’s getting fucked. Wouldn’t you wanna get a couple extra, like, 30 thousand dollars back on your tax return? You’re getting fucked either way.”

Now, Banks said, Trump is “cheapening the presidency” and also reminds her of a certain South Park character. “Now you’re just being sloppy,” she said, noting that Trump is like “the adult human Eric Cartman.”

The Breakfast Club’s guest Friday morning was none other than Azealia Banks, who recently dropped her Junior Sanchez-produced new single “Anna Wintour.”

During the hour-long discussion, Banks touched on a number of highly discussable topics, including her former support of the neo-Nazi-sympathizer-in-chief.

“Everybody keeps trying to pin this love for Trump on me, [but] that wasn’t the point,” Banks, around the 28-minute mark, said. “It was more so just about the tax break.

Now, Banks said, Trump is “cheapening the presidency” and also reminds her of a certain South Park character. “Now you’re just being sloppy,” she said, noting that Trump is like “the adult human Eric Cartman.”

But the talk wasn’t all Trump-related. On the topic of her previous criticism of Cardi B, Banks said “it’s very concerning” to her that “this conversation surrounding black women’s culture” has—in her opinion—changed. When Charlamagne pushed back and said the conversation had continued to grow, Banks pointed to “this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with.”

Banks also discussed RZA, Russell Crowe, Kanye West, new music, and more. See the full interview up top.
