Nicki Minaj ‘endorses’ Mitt Romney via Lil Wayne mixtape?

http://twitter.com/NathanWurtzel/statuses/242764758430920705

Note the question mark in the headline, as we’re new to dealing with Republican “endorsements” that arrive via mixtape. The verse that has listeners so excited, delivered by rapper Nicki Minaj, goes, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.”

Minaj appears as a guest on rapper Lil Wayne’s latest mixtape, which is called “Dedication 4” and was released on the Internet today.

The verse, from the track “Mercy,” is sure to make a splash as the mixtape makes the rounds, but it might not be a good idea to take the line as a straight-up endorsement rather than as the adoption of a persona — a bit like saying Ellen Barkin is a conservative because she plays one on TV. Conservatives can hope, though. A Nicki Minaj endorsement is a good thing, right?

    ok, you’re welcome, remember by tweet, Bill Clinton, you a stupid ho! ? you’re welcome Mitt

    The tweeter 「 ⭕reos &’ Hoes ❤ 」 does know that there is specialized farm machinery for harvesting cotton now doesn’t he?

  • Catchance

    Oh, the irony. Did you see what ‘Common Courtesy’ wrote? Apparently his courtesy only extends so far.

    Well that was unexpected

  • Mike Kerns

    Wow, can I be like “Learnnow Screamlater” and just completely make stuff up? She left out the part where Romney will steal the last beer out of your fridge and step on the tail of your cat as he leaves.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6CV3NKRH2H7GQTMC6BYQ3FJEFE Daisy MJ

    So she didn’t support Romney then? People need to fix the articles being written on the net.

    • Julie

      Not even sure it matters if she does or does not support Mitt (I think she does not), but look at the hate and vileness being spewed at her. That says a lot about the oh so loving left.

    With fans like that, who needs enemies?? holy crap…

  • http://twitter.com/mikeinthebay Michael C.

    Nicki likes to keep her own money. I’m actsully surprised rappers don’t tow the republican line in lock step.

  • http://twitter.com/dink_daniels d.

    Rappers love love love capitalism. Its undeniable.

    I’ll be the first to admit I can’t stand rap, but I also have to admit that she’s got a talent for getting media buzz.

      This. Ms. Minaj likes to be talked about and this… will get her talked about. In that respect I gotta say, ‘clever girl’.

    Interesting. She hasn’t tweeted since Saturday, so I expect we’ll know when she (or her staff) does go back on there, if she comes back with denials and reassurances that it’s just a song.

    Personally, it doesn’t matter to me as I’m just grateful we have Clint. It would be a nice poke in the eye to Barry though. Isn’t Lil Wayne one of his favorites or something?

  • nc

    Don’t know if she meant the endorsement or not, but regardless, how scary to be in the public eye and be on the receiving end of all that over AN OPINION included in a song lyric.

    I’m sure she didn’t expect it. It would be really great if she came out with some kind of statement exposing this hostility. I’m not holding my breath, though.

  • J. Cox

    And the hate machine from the “tolerant” left scores again.

  • Ben Rawls

    Wow all this violence and hate fro the “compassionate” party. I say God bless you Nicki.

  • Quixotic

    Good for Miss Minaj, but I sure wish this delightful your songstress had said “You lazy bitches ARE fucking up the economy,”

  • Shelby is a Patriot

    Oh, wow. Aren’t they nice. Not.

  • vino veritas

    Damn! You’d think she left islam for Christianity or something. Between getting her ‘eye punched with a nail’ (not sure how that would work) and having her whole ‘bloodline’ exterminated, it can be said (without any uncontrollable urges to belt out loud laughing whatsoever) that liberals are assuredly telling the truth when they call conservatives violent intolerant extremists.

  • vino veritas

    See she really is multi-talented, she can curse and campaign for presidential candidates all at the same time and get her fans to turn on her in the blink of an eye! This woman is seriously going places.

  • megancommon

    This is actually wrong, she is actually mocking republicans and Mitt Romney, not claiming to be one in support of him.

  • BigDogJunction

    @2012IsNotUrYear is the same putz from @2008IsNotUrYear. Major ass. Make sure, you all take note and let him have it in November.

  • mitchellvii

    Well racism and hate are clearly alive in the Democrat party.

  • mitchellvii

    Dont you admire the openness with which Democrats accept opposing points of view. They are beacons of acceptance!

  • mitchellvii

    If a Republican singer came out for Obama people wouldnt like it but i doubt there would be Twitter murder threats.

    • Michael Lococo

      That’s ‘cuz Ted has Guns! :-)

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Owned.

    Let me be clear. Pwnt, I guess.

  • Ryan Blake Comer

    I expect her to walk it back to some extent. Regardless, it’s nice to have the whole liberal tolerance hypocrisy exposed yet again.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    I really wish she is because I like her and her music. But even if it’s just a persona, it’s a clever line. And yes Obama is a lazy bish effing up the economy. That part is apt.
    Not fair that she would get flack from either side for it, especially not death threats and threats against her whole bloodline. These people need to just take some tranquilizers.

  • prlgrl

    Guys, when you see Twitter murder threats don’t just forward them to twitchy, send them to @Twitter, @FBIPressOffice, and if they are against Romney or Ryan as well to @SecretService. Send them to the press as well. Even MSNBC may be forced to admit this is happening if we force them to acknowledge it.

  • rinodino

    Right wingers get so hyped over celebrity endorsements lol… Are you not the ones that famously told them to shut up and dance?? Lol except when you want to kiss their butt for voting conservative lol pucker up lol

    • Darth_Venomous

      And leftards like Little Davey Pants get their thongs in a bunch over…over…well, pretty much over everything, really.

      • vino veritas

        Libs and trolling go hand in hand. This one has been telling lies ever since he learned how to form sentences.

    • J. Cox

      3 reasons why you are clueless

      1.We do not care who she votes for,and her endorsement is hers to make herself.
      2 You seem to think that we are angry because she is being attacked by the left because we think she is on “our team”.
      3.You cannot see the complete hypocrisy of the left.

      But you go ahead in your delusional world and justify these tweets however you can.Come November,I am betting you will be first in line at counseling for Obama’s loss.

  • Davey Vecchia

    Omgzzz a smart rapper!?!? No way! That could never happen! +10000 to her if its true! if not she sucks once again!

    So basically you all are idiots…seriously you are going to stop listening to her music and now want to harm her all over who she supports…..great because when you all learn IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO IS PRESIDENT REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRATIC THEY DO NOT RUN THE SHOW !!!!!! They are nothing more but puppets!

  • Ray O.

    Wow the evil is palpable in these tweets. The progressives have created an vicious monster.

  • Lisa Cunningham

    Yep, any celebrity types who even sort of admit “being on the other side” better watch out! Remember a few months ago when Brad Pitts mom endorsed Romney…the death threats started flying. God forbid we all have diff thoughts/opinions. Let’s be clones who think the SAME THING about EVERYTHING. (insert your fave robot voice here) I went to the movies yest with 3 great friends (ALL libs-1 gay) and had to listen to them bitch about the theater next to us showing “Obama 2016” But you know what. I just waited for a good time to change the subject, and I still like them :))

  • Mini14’sBlkStrat

    The dems are enraged, unhinged, and feeling like they need to murder!? They all need professional help before one of them acts out their fantasy.

  • Popintl8

    Everyone is taking this so literal, she’s not a republican nor is she endorsing Mitt Romney, she’s making the relation that republicans are voting for Mitt Romney and f****** up the economy. Don’t forget right after that she said she in Miami chilling with a zombie. Where the real life zombie is from.

  • Karin

    But but she’s a celebrity!! Hollywood! I thought they were stupid? I love the hypocrisy from the right. Plus she was being sarcastic, lol.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    The left just does NOT get the concept of irony. They are becoming the DEFINITION of the word.

  • W. S.

    Nicki M is smokin hot.

  • Hayes

    I wish Captain Pajamas would elaborate on his analogy of “Nicki Minaj voting for Mitt Romney is like Chickens voting for Colonel Saunders”

    It’s hard to not read a racial undertone in this comment. Does this mean if you’re black you better vote for Obama or bad things will happen to you? If not, someone please enlighten me.
