Rapper T.I. faced an onslaught of backlash, including Oprah Winfrey’s, after telling a radio show host he wouldn’t vote for a woman for president, according to The Hill.

“Just because every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well,” said the rapper. “But the president, it’s kind of like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen or they didn’t mean for it to happen.”

“I think you might be able to get the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [a woman]. It’s not right, but I’m just saying I don’t think,” he added

Winfrey shot back at the rapper.

“You know what I say to that? I want to say, ‘Honey child, hush your mouth, you don’t know what you’re talking about.’”

The rapper apologized via Twitter.

During the interview, T.I. also dubbed Republican frontrunner Donald Trump as interesting, but said he could not endorse the real estate mogul.

“His racist remarks, all of his off-color statements, it makes it impossible to be, like, completely supportive of him,” he said. “But just knowing what he’s done for business, for himself, if he intends to do that for America, it would be beneficial. But I can’t cast no vote for him.”

After following this man for the last few months and hearing what he has to say, I have decided to support Bernie Sanders and do what I can to help him become the next President of the United States. Last night a group of us met with Mr. Sanders and had a creative meeting about how to spread his message to people that haven’t been educated on what he stands for. I would love to reach out to all of you for creative ideas and help; so we can come together and radically change the institutions that have controlled this country using fear, power, and greed. From reforming Wall Street & the corruption in corporate America, to proactively addressing climate change. From helping create free college; to providing free health care to everyone. And giving paid maternity leave to new mothers. These aren’t new ideas to a lot of the Western world. But they are new ideas to the United States. And to me they Just Make Sense. The people truly have the power to change the way this country is run. If we come together and create a collective voice, we can knock down the old walls. With that same voice, we can rebuild something beautiful for our future kids and grandkids. ‪#‎feelthebern‬‪#‎bernie2016‬ 🇺🇸
