Remember how Kanye West got booed after he revealed mid-concert that he would have voted for Donald Trump if he had participated in this year's presidential election?!
Well, now a source is saying the 39-year-old's controversial confession — which was also accompanied by rants about racism, women's rights, and other social issues — didn't actually reflect his political views.

Wait. What? He literally said:
"If I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump."
However, the insider insists the rapper was NOT expressing his political beliefs in the disappointing tirade, telling People:
"[Kanye]'s basically saying everyone has a right to their opinion and it's important to have a dialogue about it. He was not espousing political views."
Yeah. We're not sure how that can be possible, considering he literally said he would have cast his ballot for the racist Republican…
But the confidante continued to say Ye's declaration was actually a statement about equality, saying:
"It was strictly an egalitarian message. He was saying 'Hey, let's have a dialogue where everyone's opinion is respected.'"
What are UR thoughts on Yeezy's excuse?! Sound off in our poll (below)!
