The Trump, Kanye West bromance keeps blooming

The Trump, Kanye West bromance keeps blooming

Conservative media figures have fawned over West's open support of President Trump.

He also ventured into a clothing and shoe line which he bragged about its success, comparing it to the career of National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan.

In a series of tweets, Chance the Rapper, struck back, writing: "Black people don't have to be democrats".

Kanye - in true Kanye form - did not hold back with his reply, giving him the ol' I love you but ...

Just as the influx of tweets settled down, Kim Kardashian West, who is married to Kanye and supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, shared her thoughts about her husband's comments on Twitter.

And during her apperance on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, Janelle Monáe had this to say about Kanye: "I don't agree with him ..."

Maybe, maybe not. All we know is that this is exactly why an outlet like Twitter can be such a unsafe one, and that we're nearly scared to see where West takes things next.

After tweeting a picture of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, Kanye seemed to share a screenshot of a text he received from John Legend, and John didn't sound happy.

West said he's just expressing his right to "independent thought", but the uproar has gotten so bad he's even been mocked by a puppet-turned-social media star named Keisha Jones.

Tucker Carlson called West's pro-Trump tweets "kind of amazing" and "a pretty bold move".

Naturally, the father of three's words sparked a torrent of reactions, many of them negative, including one seeming to come from West's friend John Legend.

Whereas she defended her husband's rant, she clarified that whereas she respects her husband, they've completely different political opinions. "If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people and minorities, I think it's bulls**t and it's not okay, and I will speak out against it and I will think freely and tell you that I don't agree with you". He wrote: "And since you're posting texts, let me add that I have a new single out haha".

Carlson, an MSNBC host at the time, went on the air shortly after West made the memorable remark during a televised fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

"I don't know of any conversation that they've had over the last week or so", Sanders said.
