Kanye West Makes a Lot More Sense Than 99.9 Percent of Liberals

Chicago native Kanye West met with President Trump in the Oval Office Thursday to discuss ways to reduce violent crime in Chicago, among other things. In front of the cameras, he talked for about eight minutes on a range of additional topics: mental health, growing up fatherless, MAGA versus “I’m with her,” job creation, the pharmaceutical industry, prison reform, and a new iteration of presidential aircraft.


West had a rambling, ADD-ish delivery, but the ideas were spot on.

He’s met with leaders in Chicago about the crime problem and building better relationships between the police and the community, and they asked him to bring up “stop and frisk” policies with Trump. Later, when a reporter informed him that Trump recently praised “stop and frisk” policies, he chuckled and said, “Sorry, didn’t mean to put you on blast like that!”

West, unlike generations of politicians in Chicago, gets down to some of the root causes of crime in Chicago and other big cities.

“Another thing is opening up industries. We need to get some protoypes here so we can get people back working.”

Throughout his time in front of the press he rattled off the relevant statistics about population, cost of production, and his understanding of the subject matter was pretty impressive – and likely far more accurate and in-depth than the understanding possessed by more than half of the students at elite universities.

Saying that the President has to be “the freshest, the flyest, West presented a “gift” to POTUS: “This is the iPlane 1, it’s a hydrogen powered airplane, and it’s what our president should be flying. We’re gonna have Apple, an American company, work on this plane.”


He called out Saturday Night Live and others for continually mocking Trump, saying it hurts us internationally.

If he don’t look good, we don’t look good. This is our President!

We have to bring jobs into America, because our best export is entertainment and ideas, but when we make everything in China and not in America, then we’re cheating on our country.”

The blue-checks will probably be offended, but West specifically advocated for bringing jobs to the “core” of the country, places like Chicago, not the shores.

I’m sure many will mock the soundbite of Kanye saying that wearing a MAGA hat made him feel like Superman, but there are a lot of layers to the entire comment.

The comments about feminine energy and his family were pretty funny:

You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also, I’m married to a family that, you know, there’s not a lot of male energy going on. It’s beautiful, though.

You know, I love Hillary…but the campaign “I’m with her,” just didn’t make me feel…like a guy that could play catch with his son.”


Reporters did ask a few questions, but West handled them perfectly. He refused to accept their premise and didn’t apologize for his positions or equivocate. To all of the politicians who will be asked about gun control in upcoming debates, please channel some of this Dragon Energy:
