Kanye West is Apparently Still a Trump Supporter

Kanye West is Apparently Still a Trump Supporter

The "Waves" rapper, 40, first sparked controversy when he tweeted his support for anti-Black Lives Matter conservative commentator Candace Owens on Saturday, April 21. Apparently, Owens cares what celebrities think as long as they care what she thinks. Moreover, if anyone wants the public to know about any substance use disorder or mental illness, they should be the one to say it. Making someone's illness public is no one's business but their own.

"Kanye has exposed how the left fans the flames of hysteria over racism to metaphorically keep black people on the plantation - to keep them docile and easily controlled", said Watson.

Gutfeld said West's defense of Owens was "a big deal".

West also told Ebro that he loves Donald Trump mainly for taking a meeting with him about the current state of gun violence in Chicago.

This drew the ire of numerous rapper's followers, considering Owens has been highly critical of the Black Lives Matter movement.




Conservatives and others who reject the liberal narrative of what it means to be black in America should be heartened by West's tweets and by other examples of prominent hip-hop artists who have recognized the importance of individual initiative in uplifting minority communities. Video from the discussion subsequently went viral, which is, seemingly, what prompted West's tweet. When asked about the attacks on Fox News on Sunday, Owens said that the backlash is a common left-wing strategy.

Juan Williams was the only one who didn't defend Owens, saying she's "someone who is taking money from the NRA for her Turning Point organization".

This afternoon, Kanye posted a number of clips - footage of his computer screen recorded on his phone - from a 22-minute Periscope stream Adams hosted yesterday called "Scott Adams tells you how Kanye showed the way to the Golden Age".

It seems like Ye's stance on Trump isn't really going anywhere, despite him doubling down on his 2016 meet-up with a tweet in disappointment that followed. "I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music", Owens tweeted in response.

West, 40, has said multiple times he wants to run for President, including in his song "Facts" where he raps "2020 I'mma run the whole election".
