    It is not uncommon to see celebrities wade into presidential elections. In 2016, both the Republican and Democratic nominees had surrogates from the entertainment industry stumping for them at rallies, on cable news and on the trail. But there’s a risk to latching your candidacy onto individuals known more for their ability to generate a following than their grasp of policy. President Trump discovered that this week. Perhaps no other demographic group gives Trump lower approval ratings than black voters. Support for the president from black Americans was already low before Trump called NFL players protesting racial injustice by kneeling...

    The mainstream press is reporting that Kanye West has abandoned conservatism and turned on Trump. Here is one of his tweets: ________________________________________ My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!! — ye (@kanyewest) October 30, 2018 _________________________________________ Some conservatives are chagrined and angry, given that it comes off as a rebuke after an impressive gathering of young black conservative leaders in Washington, and the issue itself revolves around the design of a political slogan, "blexit," and...

    Donald Trump superfan Kanye West put on his red “Make America Great Again” cap and headed into the Chicago suburbs for lunch at a Mexican restaurant on Thursday. The rapper, music producer, and fashion designer ate at Pepe’s Cantina in Naperville, Illinois, for a meal of chicken tacos and to shoot some pool, the restaurant’s owner told CBS Chicago. A Mexican restaurant may seem an odd place for a Trump fan to wear their hat considering the president’s rhetoric about Mexicans and his desire to construct a huge wall at the southern border to keep most of them out. Trump...
  • Chris Matthews' Reaction to Kanye West Exposes the Left's Race-Card Hustle

    As is often the case in this era of President Donald Trump, the reaction is far more interesting than the action. The action was rapper/entrepreneur, ex-George W. Bush denouncer and Trump supporter Kanye West, whom Trump invited to the White House. The reaction from left-wing black critics was predictable. But the reaction from a notable Trump-hating white pundit was unintentionally eye-opening. In the Oval Office, West spoke nonstop, and apparently unscripted, for nearly 10 minutes. During his monologue and subsequent questions by reporters, West talked about the pressure blacks face to vote Democratic; how conservative blacks are often bullied by...

    In what some have “Kanye Derangement Syndrome” we see the death throes of the divide and conquer identity politics that have long been the source of Democrat power and residual political success. Their mantra was that black conservatives could not possibly exist in the natural world. They had to be some kind of genetically modified organism to which, when someone wandered off the plantation, they would apply that scientific term, “Uncle Tom”. The problem for Democrats is that blacks are leaving their political plantation in increasing droves. In a bit of irony, they are pouring across ideologically open borders. Heeding...

    New York Post ^ | October 13, 2018 | Michael Goodwin
    Then there was Thursday’s spectacle in the Oval Office. Once again, his stream-of-consciousness commentary veered from nonsense to common sense and included references to the 13th Amendment, which forbids slavery, and his feeling of being “programmed” as a black man to support only liberal politicians. A black anchor on CNN accused West of putting on a “minstrel show,” a black pundit on the same panel called him an “attention whore” and “the token Negro of the Trump administration.” Another chipped in with, “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read.” A black New York Times columnist said the White...
  • Colin Kaepernick: Kanye West urges NFL player to meet with Donald Trump

    American rapper Kanye West has urged NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick to "tell your experience directly" to US President Donald Trump. In 2016, Kaepernick was criticised by Trump after he became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice. Last month, Trump said Nike had sent a "terrible message" when they named the 30-year-old as the face of the brand's new advertising campaign. West urged them to open a "dialogue". Writing on Twitter, he said: "Reaching out to Colin Kaepernick. "I would like you to speak with the president to tell him your experience directly. Let's...

    Stumped by what they regard as “an inexplicable deviation from everything we’ve come to believe about race in America,” talking heads at MSNBC and CNN were at a loss for how to explain the friendly relationship between rapper musician Kanye West and President Donald Trump during their meeting to discuss prison reform. CNN’s Don Lemon said “West’s notion that he could persuade Trump to take him seriously is a betrayal of his race. Every sane black person knows that hatred is the only acceptable attitude to have when it comes to Trump. Even if West does get Trump to adopt...

    (CNN) - Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump was back on the "Saturday Night Live" stage and this time he brought Kanye West with him. Well, at least Chris Redd's version of Kanye West. The NBC variety show opened Saturday night's episode by tackling President Trump's meeting with West and football legend Jim Brown, who was played by Kenan Thompson, earlier this week. "Thank you all for joining us today for this important discussion. It's in no way a publicity stunt," Baldwin's Trump said. Redd's West said that he flew to the meeting using the "power" of his "Make America Great Again"...

    CNN's Chris Cuomo took a swing at what racist musings President Donald Trump was thinking about when he hosted rapper Kanye West in the Oval Office on Thursday. Cuomo was also upset that Trump held a rally (Wednesday night in Erie, Pennslyvania) as Hurricane Michael battered Florida. Cuomo, taking an "educated guess," said Trump probably got a "warm serotonin flush of happy hormone" when he had racist ideas while talking to West, like the headlines he would get for talking with a popular African-American man. Cuomo flashed out headlines like 'Blacks Loves Trump' and 'He's Blacker Than Obama' as thoughts...

The First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights protects the individual against the government. That includes due process and presumption of innocence, which Lemon and his leftist media ilk rejected in the Kavanaugh hearings.

Him in front of all these white people, mostly white people, embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans, but mostly African-Americans, because every one of them is sitting either at home or with their phones, watching this, cringing. … Kanye needs help....

    I've written it here many times- there is no racism like liberal racism. There has a been a nuclear explosion of racism from the left, all driven by Kanye West. CNN has been the main outlet for this torrent of racism. The Republican white guy was dumbfounded, as most civilized people would have been. Don Lemon found the racism hilarious. I have a question. Where is the outrage? There isn't any. This is the left wing press- the arm of the DNC. Anything goes for them. Had some Fox commentators said anything like this.... But as the dust has begun to...

    CNN host Anderson Cooper tore into President Trump for taking time to “yuck it up” with rapper Kanye West on Thursday while Floridians were facing the destruction left by Hurricane Michael. The host railed against the “surreal” conversation between the President and West while splitting the screen with images of the meeting and images from the aftermath of the storm. “We’re going to show you exactly what was going on in the White House in the Oval Office. It’ll be on one half of your screen. It starts with Kanye West talking about his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat,” Cooper...

    One of these days I am going to feel sorry for Jim Acosta, but I am not there yet. Very few people in the administration like or respect him. He is considered by most people I know (including liberals) as the most unprofessional member of the White House press corps. And as if to prove it today he tweeted something petty about Kanye West’s visit to the White House, and he was practically disemboweled on twitter.

    President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West spoke to reporters in the Oval Office Thursday afternoon before their lunch meeting. West, who has sparked outrage from some on the left with his outspoken support for the president, riffed on a series of topics, including racism, tax breaks, education, prison reform and gun control. “The problem is illegal guns, illegal guns is the problem. Not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms," West said when a reporter asked him about the debate over gun violence in America and gun control. West, a Chicago native, said he and the president...

    Juan Williams blasted President Trump's Oval Office meeting with musician Kanye West and former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown. Williams said Trump used West, 41, as a "prop" to impress a following said to be largely white. "This is Trump speaking to his white backers saying 'I'm not racist'," Williams said. "He's Kanye West, so all these things about [Trump] calling people 'dogs' and saying people 'coming from s**thole countries' [can be overlooked]." Williams said the Oval Office should be "treated with respect," appearing to nod to the fact that West used an expletive while praising Trump.
