Lil Wayne isn't feeling hopeful about any of the candidates in the current Republican Presidential field.

"You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it," Wayne told Vibe. "I feel like as a people the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask ‘Am I the person they’re talking about or am I not?’ You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us."
