Killer Mike: Clinton, Trump are ‘the same thing’

MSNBC

Rapper Killer Mike is telling voters there’s no difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

“If you’re voting for Trump or Hillary Clinton, you’re voting for the same thing,” he told TMZ during an interview Thursday.

Killer Mike, a prominent Bernie Sanders supporter, said he still isn’t behind either general election candidate.

{mosads}“I have not decided yet,” he said. “I’m definitely not with him or her. All of us as citizens need to kind of get over our classisms and vote for the betterment of us all.”

But he expressed disappointment that voters hadn’t given Sanders the Democratic nomination.

“We had one candidate this year who had a strong chance of winning, who is anti-growing war, and that was Sanders,” he said. “We didn’t vote him in.

“We’re getting what we asked for,” added Killer Mike. “We asked for more war.”

He also cited the appeal of third-party candidates.

“If you don’t want any war, you’d be voting for Jill Stein,” he said of the Green Party candidate.

“If you want less government and war, you’d be voting for Gary Johnson,” he added about the Libertarian nominee.

Killer Mike also dismissed the furor over Trump’s controversial remarks earlier this week suggesting that gun rights proponents could take action against Clinton.

“He’s bat-sh-t crazy but I don’t think he would call for the assassination of another presidential candidate,” he said. “He was saying the vote could prevent her.

“I don’t think that’s what he was saying. I hope that’s not what he was saying. I’m very pro-Second Amendment,” he added.

Trump on Tuesday seemingly joked about gun owners taking action against Clinton and her Supreme Court picks.

“Hilary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said at a rally

“By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump added in Wilmington, N.C. “Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
