Tameka “Tiny” Cottle kept it eight more than 92 when she was questioned about her husband, T.I.’s ill-advised remarks about the possibility of a female president.
To backtrack, the superstar rapper, who now performs under the moniker “Tip,” was asked about his thoughts on Hillary Clinton returning to the White House in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he brazenly admitted. “You ain’t gon’ be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy, the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to [get] the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [a woman]…it’s not right, but I don’t think…ya know.”
After the inevitable sh*tstorm, Tiny was asked by TMZ what she felt about the backlash and naturally she defended her man, but it wasn’t just for the sake of doing it. She just knows how he is.
“I’m not disrespected because I know him; I know who he is. I think it was not tasteful but I know the man he is.”
When questioned whether or not the Atlanta rapper was sexist, Tiny couldn’t distort the truth and replied “sometimes.”
“He might have been thinking about me at the time [of the brash decisions comment],” she continued. “He just wants to be the man.”
