The rapper still has a bone to pick with the president.
Kanye West can probably forget about being invited to the White House anytime soon. During an interview with Power 106 FM in Los Angeles, West was asked what he thought about the president and had a few unkind words. He replied, You cant effect change from inside the White House like that ... you gotta have the money.
According to the Daily Mail, West continued his rant, actually contradicting himself: Good ideas usually arent connected to money as much ... Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap. If you didn't quite understand what West was talking about, he had a few words of advice. Dont worry about how Im saying what Im saying. Look at what Im saying and how I feel my intent is, West said.

A modern Alexis de Tocqueville for sure.
Wouldn’t that be “affect?”
What do I care about what one POS says about another?
When you enemies are fighting each other - let them.
See 2nd Chronicles 2:22
22 As soon as they began singing, the Lord confused the enemy camp, 23 so that the Ammonite and Moabite troops attacked and completely destroyed those from Edom. Then they turned against each other and fought until the entire camp was wiped out!
I know that for political advice, I turn to rappers who ‘sing’ about ‘doing anal’.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have if you’re trying to force people to change their own human behavior by shoving regulations and taxes down their throat while trying to enslave them.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Creativity and genius MAKE money...
No, ‘effect change’ (i.e., bring about change) is the proper usage in this context.
One insignificant butthead talking about another insignificant butthead.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I pity tha’ fool . .
Not always. There are lots of rich rappers out there, like West, who have no creativity or genius, yet are still rich. That just proves that HL Mencken was right when he said, "no one ever went broke underestimating the tastes of the American people."
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Is there a dumber man on the planet?
“Wouldnt that be affect?
“Is there a dumber man on the planet”?
There are millions of them. They are called democrats. Look who they vote for and what they stand for. They certainly aren’t mensa candidates.
