All of America is asking, “What in the world is Kanye West doing?” He has been tweeting understanding, if not support, for President Donald Trump. This has the American political left lighting their hair on fire. It is as if God has forsaken them and put on a MAGA hat.
Well, what actually is happening is that he is acting on what, in December of 2016, was thought to be a nervous breakdown or mental exhaustion. West’s personal doctor was so worried about the rapper that he called 911 or rather that was the official story. West’s doctor actually called before even seeing or examining West according to this TMZ clip.
The same thing seems to be repeating itself. Kanye West says what seem like crazy things (only if you believe black people shouldn’t support republican ideas or candidates) and then his lawyers and management do damage control, but that might all be changing. West has reportedly fired his lawyer and manager according to this Hollywood Scoop report.
But when you look at everything, Kanye West seems consistent and even cogent in what he believes. RedState has linked the transcript of what is allegedly Kanye West’s meltdown in 2016. Please be advised this is a profanity-laced monologue and is not safe for family viewing. West said,
“But as we learn all the politics that niggas was doing for years. Obama couldn’t make America great because he couldn’t be him to be who he was. Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn’t allowed to do this [screams] and still win. He had to be perfect. But being perfect don’t always change shit, bro.”
That’s pretty much the sentiment President Trump tapped into to win the White House.
“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world. Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro. It’s a new world. It’s a new world, Barack. It’s a new world, Jay Z. Hey, don’t send killers at my head, bro. This ain’t the Malcolm X movie. We growing from that moment. Let ‘Ye be ‘Ye. And wait a second. Do y’all agree with that? Let ‘Ye be ‘Ye. Wait a second. I ain’t hear enough screams on that. Let ‘Ye be ‘Ye.”
This writer has read thousands of hot takes and think pieces expressing exactly this sentiment. “Middle Amera felt a way and they showed you how they felt.” That is pretty damn good political analysis for being 10 days after the election.
And Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg? He pulls no punches.
“I ain’t here to massage you with a fake truth, telling you that Hillary gon’ win over and over and over and then you wake up [and] you still can’t believe it! You know why? Because you was lied to by Google. You was lied to by Mark Zuckerberg”
Who among us does not feel that way about Mark Zuckerberg?
But his truest statement was his most profane, when he said,
“Fuck winning. Fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh! I’ve been sitting here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life.”
C’mon, that’s like 98.6 percent of Twitter. What do Kanye West and The Dixie Chicks have in common? This — they’re both being told to shut up and perform.
Is Kanye West crazy? It doesn’t look like it. It looks like he is just really tired of the bullsh**. But really, who isn’t? Would he make a good president? Elect him and find out…
