For all of the pop culture critics out there, Kanye West has been an incredibly fascinating creature over the course of the last few months.
Hailing from the city of Chicago, and coming of age in the heavily left-leaning hip hop culture, Kanye West should, by all means, be a man of the people whose radical ideas line up with fringe, temporary characters such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Instead, West broke the mold and spoke his mind, offering up his unconventional support for President Donald Trump in a myriad of ways.
Now, his latest and most succinct message to the masses is going viral for all the right reasons.
Kanye West took to Twitter on New Year’s Day to make it clear where he stands politically in 2019.Trending:
“Trump all day,” he wrote, followed by dragon emojis — likely calling back to tweets from April in which he said he and Donald Trump share “dragon energy,” which he defined as “natural born leaders,” “very instinctive” and “great foresight.”
“They will not program me. Blacks are 90% Democrats,” West tweeted. “That sounds like control to me.”
And then, in a profane addendum, the rapper added:
“One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black,” he said. “From now on I’m performing with my mutherf**king hat on.”
Kanye West shocked the mainstream media during his recent bout of support for the President, spurring many pundits and observers to begin unscientifically diagnosing Kanye with medical, mental issues.
