Donald Trump Praises Kanye West For This Very Questionable Reason

Seems like this bromance is still ongoing.

Published August 11, 2018

Donald Trump and Kanye West still seem to be homies.

  1. ‘Ye recently went on Jimmy Kimmel Live and espoused continued support for 45 after he was asked why he supports Trump when he definitely didn’t like George W. Bush.

    Kanye’s response? “Everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over, I’d get kicked out the black community, because blacks, we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats,” he said.

    Well, Trump, who’s previously described all the late night hosts as unfunny, apparently was watching and has a message with one of his highest profile supporters.

  2. “Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH,” he tweeted. “One new and great FACT - African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!”

    First off, Kanye really isn’t making a difference. Second, Trump also isn’t making a difference as there is no proof any of his policies (or lack thereof) so far have had any affect on black unemployment statistics. What we do know is that wages for all races are at historic lows, compared to inflation, and many are having to work numerous jobs just to make ends meet.

    But those two can keep living in fantasy land. It's supposedly a free country after all.
