50 Cent disavows Trump as Lil Wayne jumps head-first on the MAGA train

Lil Wayne, 50 Cent
50 Cent pulls back any perceived support for Donald Trump’s re-election as Lil Wayne gives full-throated endorsement.
What a difference a week makes. After publicly crying over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s plan to raise taxes on people making over $400,000 annually, and proclaiming he would be voting for Trump, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is recanting.

“I never liked him,” Jackson posted on Twitter, along with a video of ex, Chelsea Handler’s appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show:

“👀 a what, 😳 another spin 💫 Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him. 🤨 for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL
@chelseahandler @jimmyfallon”

We can probably thank Handler for 50 coming to his senses. She spent last weekend dragging him on social media for his Trump-positive comments. Telling Jimmy Fallon,

“He doesn’t want to pay 62 percent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go from 50 Cent to 20 Cent,” said Handler. “I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.”

Meanwhile, Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., better known as Lil Wayne, managed to shock and temporarily distract nearly everyone after revealing his endorsement for Trump, going as far as posting a picture of himself, clad in a sweater and slacks, standing next to Trump, both grinning with their thumbs up.

“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done. 🤙🏾”

Responses on Twitter were swift and unforgiving, with some speculating Wayne may just be looking for a pardon on federal gun charges.

Last December federal agents raided Wayne’s private jet where a gold-plated handgun was recovered. Wayne allegedly admitted to authorities that the gun belonged to him.

Lil Wayne is a felon. He spent a year in a New York jail after cops there arrested him for gun possession, a felony. As a felon, Wayne cannot own or possess firearms.

Wayne is still waiting for a trial date for the December 2019 gun arrest.
