After a long (and let’s be honest, welcome) break from Twitter, Kanye West rejoined the social media platform this month and once again he wasted no time in doing what Kanye does best - creating controversy.
He sent out a flurry of tweets praising President Donald Trump, calling the Don his ‘brother’ and of course pointing out that they both share dragon energy. No one really knows what dragon energy is, except maybe Charlie Sheen (presumably it’s linked to Tiger Blood).
Anyway, he followed this up with a picture of his signed Make America Great Again hat.
Needless to say, Twitter exploded, outraged at the fact that Kanye West seemed to be Team Trump. Even my own mother was shocked, she sent me a panicked text (in all caps of course).
I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT KANYE EAST GUY, WOT AN IDIOT! LOVE YOU XX
But I couldn’t share in the uproar. Who cares that Kanye loves Trump?
I was more offended that time he released a bunch of potato sacks as clothes. Or when he compared himself to Will Ferrell's character in Elf. These are real issues.
The fact that Trump and Kanye see eye to eye is not even remotely surprising - both are rocking sizeable egos and love to talk about themselves in the third person.
The best part about the whole TrumYe love affair was realising that famous couples are just like us. At one point during his tweetstorm, Kanye took the time out to admit Kim Kardashian had jumped on the phone and pulled him into line.
I think it’s time we stop investing so much in what Kanye is thinking. Oh and maybe Kim should change his password, for a little while at least.
