A publicity stunt, or just Kanye being Kanye? Who knows. Who cares. West was loudly booed (of course) and people are talking about him, which I guess was the point.

Hip hop superstar Kanye West, who famously declared his intention to run for President in 2020, told a shocked audience in California that he didn't cast a vote in the presidential election earlier this month, but if he did, he "would have voted for Trump."

After the slightly-too-late endorsement for Donald Trump, the shock winner and now-President-elect, given between songs during the show at the SAP Center in San Jose on Thursday night, a large section of the audience booed the singer.

President Obama's frank assessment of Kanye in 2009 when he stormed the stage at the VMA Awards when Taylor Swift won over Beyoncé (' one of the best videos of all time!') remains definitive.
