Donald Trump Just Tweeted About His Pal Kanye and I Think I’m Going to Be Sick

I swear, Kanye West is pretty much killing us die-hard fans (or, at this point, “me”) since he’s gotten back on Twitter, ostensibly in a publicity quest leading up to releasing between two and five albums in the next few weeks.


Since he’s opened the Pandora’s box of his mouth after having an alleged psychotic break in December, Kanye has been in the lab doing what he does best: making boundary-breaking music.

But then, being the attention whore and contrarian genius (don’t @ me) that he is, Kanye had to do something my little cousin Brandi summed up best: “He dragged it.” You took it toooooooo far, bro.


First off, Ye starts wearing “MAGA” hats and talking shit about Obama (e.g., shit black people hate). Then he name-checks Candace Owens, a conservative pundit who is now famous, for “liking the way she thinks.”

Apparently, Candace (not the one from Kansas) is a bit of a deluded black.

But the two met yesterday at architectural school Sci-Arc, and though West didn’t tweet about the meeting, social media got ahold of photos of them.

And then Donald Trump got ahold of them. And tweeted this:


Trump actually didn’t call Kanye his “pal”—just the first two people he mentioned—but it is too close for my taste.

It’s going to be “interesting” indeed to see how this love affair goes.

Kanye has opened up a new fanbase amongst the MAGites.

There was a guy on the radio this morning obliquely defending Trump without actually saying he was defending Trump from all the mean people who are out to get him. He then went on to mention that he’d “never heard any of Kanye’s music before, but has recently started checking it out.”

Time to let him go, Angela.
