Kanye West and President Trump to Have Dinner Together. Here’s What’s on the Agenda.

Published

on

Rapper Kanye West has been extremely vocal about his support for President Donald Trump, a bold proclamation for someone who works in the cesspool of the entertainment industry where such an announcement can lead to the end of your career.

West has certainly caught tons of flack for his support of Trump, but despite all of the pressure on him to cave in and renounce the president, he’s remained true to what he believes and has stood by his convictions. Surprisingly, this has made him a sort of admirable figure among conservatives, which, to be honest, is probably not something anyone could have possibly predicted.

Now, Trump and West are planning to sit down and have dinner together at the White House. What a strange time to be alive, folks.

Presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will also meet with West when he visits, press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

“Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago,” Sanders said.

Trump on Monday said he had instructed the Department of Justice to work with law enforcement in West’s hometown of Chicago to “straighten out the terrible shooting wave.” The president has also threatened to send in federal forces to clean up Chicago.

West is scheduled to visit on Thursday, The New York Times reports.

“Mr. Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to Mr. Trump, has been focused on overhauling the criminal justice system, and one person briefed on the meeting said that Mr. West wanted to discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts. He also hopes to discuss with Mr. Trump how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area, where Mr. West grew up and recently said he planned to return, according to the person briefed on the meeting,” said the Times.

Folks might not realize just how impactful it is to have Kanye’s support of the president. As Andrew Breitbart famously — and correctly — stated, politics flows downstream from culture. Therefore, if you want to truly change the political climate, you have to focus on winning hearts and minds in the culture.

There’s no doubt a lot of impressionable young folks who are now curious as to why Kanye is supportive of someone the vast majority of people in their lives tell them they are supposed to hate. By examining things for themselves they may end up being won over by the truth of conservative principles.

Or at the least, having their mind opened to different possible solutions to America’s problems than they previously thought about.

Either way, this is how you change things. Let’s hope other big players in pop culture follow suit.

Hollywood Steps Up To Defend Antisemitic Democrat

Are these Hollywood actors so blinded by their “resistance” that they are willing to become antisemite-sympathizers?

There are so many different anecdotes about history and its reputation for repetition that I’ll allow you, dear reader, to fill in your own right here.

We look to the past to ensure our future, because it is a far more sturdy indicator of the way the world works than any social science of our modern age.  We see populations rise and fall, along with their governments, all in a quest for freedom and happiness.

It is when we feel shame looking back that we have to be the most cognizant.  We can’t shy away from the ugly, hateful truths of humanity.

The Holocaust is a near perfect example, although I despise the idea of situating the word “perfect” anywhere near the atrocity that I am describing.

Liberating troops in the waning days of World War II, as instructed to do so by the governments to which they took oath,  led mandatory guided tours of the Nazi concentration camps for citizens living in the areas surrounding them.  This was not a punishment, although the misery and sorrow certainly weighed upon these people in the same way that guilt does.

No, this was an opportunity for education; an opportunity to say, “don’t turn your back on your leaders for one minute”.

It was antisemitic hatred, driven by leftwing socialists, that caused the Holocaust, and today, here in America, we have liberals in our Congress who have expressed prejudice against the Jewish people.

What’s worse?  Hollywood is siding with the antisemite.

Hollywood celebrities concerned about bigotry in America made one big exception this week to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of anti-Semitism for remarks she made about the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Ilhan Omar said in a social media post about GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy defending Israel.

The deplorable diatribe was lambasted by the sane among us, but, for some reason, Hollywood just couldn’t let this discriminatory democrat face the music.

And then this, from Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman who has already apologized for a stunt in which she dressed like Adolf Hitler while appearing on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show.

Tim Allen and Tom Hanks Moved to Tears Recording Toy Story 4

As close to our heart as many well-loved movie franchises are, we can often forget that for the actors that bring the characters to life, the characters are that much more important to them.

Time Allen recently told Entertainment Tonight that while he and co-star Tom Hanks were filming the “Toy Story 4” script that they could barely hold it together while recording the final scenes.

“Both Tom and I, who met yesterday for our little guy’s lunch, we were both very very affected by the end of the movie,” Allen said. “So much so that he had turn around. He couldn’t even deliver his end of it, [and] I couldn’t deliver my end of it.”

“This has been over 20 years of he and I doing this, and it’s made an impact on both of our lives our families lives,” he added.

It’s amazing to think the Toy Story series has spanned two decades and that the once-fresh Pixar blockbuster has now become a well-loved classic.

The story is far from over though—Allen teased the next installment of the series.

“It’s a love story between Tom and his love interest… and then Buzz has to make a decision on how to move on with his life cause Woody’s making some different decisions…” he shared. “It’s so funny and so bright and so interesting and so affecting, towards the end.”

Allen also said there’s a good chance it will just keep on going.

“Once you’ve gotten to four, you’re passed that trilogy [point], so I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t do it, certainly,” Allen shared. “If you ask me, I’d say do five.”
