T.I. recently made a stop at Eminem's Sirius XM channel Shade 45 and shared a troubling perspective about a female hypothetically becoming president with DJ Whoo Kid (who went right along with it):

“Not to be sexist but, I can’t have the—I can't vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president, it’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally—they make very permanent, like, cemented decisions—and then later, it’s kinda 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 because a motherfucker, you know what I'm saying..."

Tip went on to opine that, “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.” Hillary Clinton's polling numbers might have something to say about that!

Following the remarks, T.I. was thoroughly slammed on social media, and he very quickly recanted on Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 13):

In less frustrating but no less perplexing news, T.I. also used the interview to let everyone know that Travi$ Scott is "Iggy [Azalea] in a black man's body." Alright!
