Fat Joe Speak Out on Daddy Yankee’s McCain Endorsement

The information of Daddy Yankee endorsing John McCain sparked some interesting feedback. With Latinos being a minority, most people was surprised that he endorsed a Republican, since its a fact that most minorities vote for the Democrat. Recently Fat Joe made a statment to MTV speaking against Daddy Yankee’s choice of endorsement, he even called it a publicity stunt.

“Just like that! I gotta go in. I’m talking to little cousins that like [Yankee] and all that, and they’re starting to believe that John McCain is [the best candidate]. I can’t have that.

“I opened the newspaper and got sick to my stomach,” Joe continued. “I felt like I wanted to vomit when I seen that. The reason why I called him a sellout is because I feel he did that for a [publicity] look, rather than the issues that are affecting his people that look up to him. How could you want John McCain in office when George Bush and the Republicans already have half a million people losing their homes in foreclosure? We’re fighting an unjust war. It’s the Latinos and black kids up in the front lines, fighting that war. … We over here trying to take the troops out of Iraq and bring peace. This guy immediately wants war. If not with Iraq or Afghanistan, he’ll start a new one with Iran. I feel real disgusted that Daddy Yankee would do that. Either he did that for a look, or he’s just not educated on politics.”

Of course Fat Joe made some good points, but at the end of the day what another man decides to do with his money is no one’s business. This is American and people have the right to decide who they would like to choose for presidency. Maybe he feel that McCain would be the right president for him. Remember that every vote counts so be sure to vote for who you would like to see as your president when November comes. IF YOU GIVE UP YOUR VOTE YOU GIVE UP YOUR VOICE…

  1. I recently did a post on the whole Fat Joe/Daddy Yankee/John McCain thing and honestly as insane as it sounds, I think it’s Daddy Yankee’s right to endorse whoever he wants and I don’t think anyone should be critical of it the way Fat Joe is. Some may say Daddy Yankee has a strong Latino fan base who he owes it to to not back someone like McCain but he Daddy Yankee’s vote is his own and I think Fat Joe should keep his comments to himself and just make sure he and everyone he knows votes on election day.
