Looks like Diddy is going from rap mogul to political commentator. In an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC, the Harlem native said African-Americans “got a little bit shortchanged” by President Obama—an opinion which is getting some side-eyes on social media. “That’s not knocking the president,” the rapper tried to clean up. “He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”

Diddy also isn’t feeling Hillary Clinton, “I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community…It really makes me feel, you know, almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc.”

Just as a point, even though people claim she’s pandering, Hillary has spoken directly to the African-American community, she has discussed black issues to black audiences (unlike Trump), she has sat down with black media and the Democratic nominee has specifically addressed issues to the African-American community, which you can find here.

Diddy also added, “The heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we got to hold our vote. Don’t pacify yourself, really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. It’s a whole different strategy, but I think we need to hold our vote because I don’t believe any of them.”
Well, Twitter wasn’t feeling him. Here are some clap backs.
