And Now, Another Word From Kanye West About Trump And His MAGA Hat...

He called it a "keynote."

Published October 12, 2018

By now, the artist-turned-activist formally known as Kanye West's latest escapade at the White House this past Thursday (Oct. 11) is the tirade heard 'round the world. After his egotistical Oval Office sit-down with Donald Trump, Ye headed over to a Georgetown Apple Store with more to say.

Some hilariously assumed he bolted to the Genius Bar to work out his passcode issues, but his self-dubbed "keynote" had even more people rolling their eyes. Jack Jenkins, a Washington, D.C.-based reporter, blessed the internet with an entire play-by-play. It appears Ye wasn't in the store very long. He asked to give a "keynote," and of course, they let him. 

Atop a comically ironic Genius Bar table, Kanye announced he designed an updated version of Trump's infamous "Make America Great Again" hat. However, the Chicago native's version removed "again" from the noted phrase because “it hurts Black people.” So, the Yeezus emcee's hat simply reads "Make America Great," and according to Jenkins, he "showed a picture on his iPhone of Trump wearing said hat."

  1. As seen in the video below, he discusses Trump and the new hat while a Black woman storms off mid-speech exclaiming, "f**k this."
  2. After asking the crowd to post his brief rant online, he left and apparently headed to Africa.
  3. These reactions to his latest shenanigans pretty much sum up this ridiculous outburst.
