You have to agree, last year was a strange and troubling one for Kanye and his family. His wife Kim made world news after being bound, gagged and robbed during fashion week in Paris. A few weeks later, the rapper himself suffered a psychotic breakdown and was hospitalized for several days. Soon after, in a weird twist of events, Kanye flipped his political views to support Trump and after getting out of the hospital, met with the president elect. Well watch out, another plot twist shows that the rapper might not be such a fan of Donald Drumpf anymore.
One of hip hop’s biggest news stories last year was when Kanye changed his political views and started advocating for Trump’s campaign, eventually meeting with him at the Trump Tower. In the middle of a tirade during a show, Kanye told the crowd, “I said something that was kinda politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But I didn’t tell you… If I would’ve voted, I would’ve on Trump.”
A few weeks later, the paps caught the duo in the lobby after their meeting and had a lot of questions about it. Trump meerly answered “Just friends, just friends, and he’s a good man. Doing well, long time. We’ve been friends for a long time. Life, we discussed life.” In true Kanye fashion, the rapper simply dead panned the cameras and refused to answer. A reporter continued to press him saying, “Kanye, no comment about your meeting with the president-elect. This is the president-elect of the United States, have nothing to say?” A blonde-haired Kanye answered, “I just wanna take a picture right now.”
Direct Line of Communication
After the election, Kanye continued to defend his move saying, “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change… These issues include bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.” Is that where Donald got the idea to “send the feds” there?
