50 Cent continues his weird, waffling relationship with President Donald Trump on Thursday. The rapper and mogul tweeted a political cartoon of the Statue of Liberty sling-shotting Trump. He captioned the image, “he going to jail.”
“Man they gonna do Trump dirty, he going to jail. you ever heard a president say stop counting the f*****g votes. LOL SMH,” he tweeted.
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, is referencing several lawsuits the Trump campaign in Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Michigan to stop counting the remaining ballots. Though, in states where he trails Joe Biden, Arizona and Nevada, the president and his surrogates insist the counts must continue. A Michigan judge tossed that case, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Trump supporters say he only wants surrogates to have “meaningful” access to the ballot-counting mechanism. However, there are a number of supporters outside the buildings where the counting is taking place screaming to end the count, Business Insider said.
The Bizarre Back and Forth with 50 Cent, Trump
About two weeks ago, 50 Cent endorsed Trump seemingly out of nowhere. The rapper and actor claimed he’d just learned of Biden’s tax plan and didn’t think it was fair to the wealthy.
“WHAT THE F—! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” wrote 50 Cent in an Instagram post. “F— NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f——mind.” It included a photo that said the effective tax rate for the wealthy in New York would be 62 percent, a figure backed up by some studies CNBC said.
A week later, after watching a segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler he changed his tune. Handler claimed she told him he needed to be careful because people could be swayed by his words, even though he was only protecting his own pocketbook.
“A what, another spin. F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon,” 50 tweeted.
And now, he thinks Trump will go to jail. 2020 really keeps us on our toes.
