T.I found himself on the chopping block after making some less than favorable comments about 2016 presidential candidate Hilary Clinton. When asked about Mrs. Clinton’s run while chatting with DJ Whoo Kid, Tip said he would not vote for a woman to be “a leader of the free world.”
“Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well,” he said. “But the president? It’s kinda 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. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke.”
When TMZ caught up with his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, she did admit that Tip can be sexist sometimes and is old-fashioned when it comes to how a man views and treats a woman.
“He just lives in the old ‘man take care of woman,’ chivalry-type thing,” she said. “I didn’t hear it, but I would hope he was joking. He might’ve been thinking about me at the time…He just wants to be the man. He wants to take care of everything, and he want the woman to be a woman and be treated like a princess. Sometimes I do [agree with him], I can’t say that I don’t. But I also think that a woman has the right to do just as much as a man.”
Tiny said that she hadn’t seen the interview but does feel that her husband’s comments weren’t “tasteful.”
