Killer Mike: Voting for Clinton or Trump Is 'Voting for the Same Thing'

Killer Mike has never shied away from voicing his political opinions, especially during this current presidential campaign season. The rapper is a day-one Bernie Sanders supporter, but now that he's out of the race, Mike is sharing his thoughts on the remaining candidates: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

TMZ caught up with Mike at the LAX airport, where he said he doesn't know who he'll be voting for but it definitely won't be those candidates. “If you’re voting for Trump or Hillary Clinton, you’re voting for the same thing," the rapper revealed.

Mike also weighed in on Trump's suggestion that "Second Amendment people" could act against Clinton, which many interpreted as an assassination threat. “I don’t think that’s what he was saying. I hope that’s not what he was saying. He’s batshit crazy, but I don’t think he would call for the assassination of another presidential candidate," he told TMZ. Watch above as the hip-hop activist discusses Trump calling President Obama the founder of ISIS.
