Did Pete Davidson and Hillary Clinton date?

In one of the 'Donda' musician's posts, he wrote alongside a picture of Pete: "Look at this d***head if Instagram is going to shut down my page for dissing Hilary Clinton’s ex-boyfriend.”

Ye continued in another caption: “Y’all seen that tattoo but if I speak up I am crazy. I told you not going to use that one no more when a garbage man goes to work he gonna smell like trash but it’s time to take the trash out of the house.”

The intense media attention surrounding Kanye's tweets led some to believe that the unlikely pair could have been romantically linked at one point, but this is not true.

Pete Davidson's Hillary Clinton tattoo

It's well-known that Pete is a heavily-tattooed guy, one piece of ink that not a lot of people knew about was a portrait of Hillary.

He got the tattoo back in 2017 and even posted about it to Instagram at the time, he wrote: "Wanted to get @hillaryclinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero.

"Thanks for being such a bad**s and one of the strongest people in the universe."

The Former United States Secretary of State even replied to flattering ink!

Thanks, @petedavidson. This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years," she joked.

"But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend."

Neither Hillary or Pete have spoken out about Kanye's Instagram posts.
