Lupe Fiasco Leaves Pre-Inauguration Event Mid-Performance, Calls Obama Terrorist On Fox News
Chicago native rapper Lupe Fiasco was set to perform at President Obama’s pre-inauguration event Sunday evening, but during his performance he issued antiwar lyrics, criticizing racism on the far right, and President Obama on the left as event staff approached him, while he continued to speak out. ”Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say … . That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either.” Said Fiasco at the event, before the lights were dimmed and he eventually left the stage. Appearing on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, Fiasco defends his words at the pre-inauguration event and asserts that Obama is a terrorist, maintaining his stance while the conversation turns to O’Reilly turning the argument on Fiasco, trying to clarify the justifications behind the Afghanistan war.
