Hip-hop star Kanye West is no stranger to media controversy. This is the same person who stopped a VMA award show to draw attention to an artist that didn’t win, and the same person who insisted that former President George W. Bush didn’t care about black people because of Hurricane Katrina.
But, West has now committed the cardinal sin that makes every other inflammatory statement he’s made seem tame by the media’s standards. Apparently, the rapper loves President Donald Trump.
On the same day West publicly “outted” himself as a Trump supporter, the rapper went on to tweet a number of pro-conservative talking points including the one referenced in the image here. Then, as if attempting to prove that West is right about everything he’s been saying, the New Yorker published the headline you see below it — effectively acknowledging that there is a certain class of people that want the masses to think a certain way bout things.
Kanye’s tweets have launched a meme storm this week, so don’t expect this to be the last time we hear from the pop artist.
