Rapper Chingy has kept a low profile for most of the last decade, but he emerged onto the scene on Friday to give Donald Trump his ringing endorsement in the race for president.

“Politics vs. society. People should innerstand that politics is a business jus like the job you work at. I vote for @realDonaldTrump “YEP” 3,” Chingy tweeted.

He added, “@realDonaldTrump knows how to conduct business. This country is a business an needs to be ran by a businessman. It’s not personal people!”


Once Chingy’s endorsement hit the Twittosphere, it wasn’t long before the Internet swooped in to poke fun, with one tweet reading, “Donald Trump has been endorsed by Sarah Palin and, more importantly, Chingy. Might as well call this election over already,” while others jokingly pointed out that Chingy doesn’t have any fans to influence in their voting patterns anyway.

After receiving excessive backlash, the rapper later posted a video saying he was no longer a fan of Trump because his fans educated him on how racially divisive the GOP front runner has been.

One can’t help but wonder how Chingy managed not to hear about Trump’s anti-immigrant sentiments until now.
