Kanye West Tells Ebro

Kanye West Tells Ebro

West also told Ebro that he loves Donald Trump mainly for taking a meeting with him about the current state of gun violence in Chicago.

West triggered a myriad of reactions Monday as he shared parts of a video uploaded by the comic book character's creator, Scott Adams. Hot 97's Ebro Darden has been critical of Ye in the past and chose to reach out, and the two ended up having a half-hour conversation.

But perhaps Kanye's most shocking confession to Ebro was discussing his love for Trump.

"I love the way Candace Owens thinks", he tweeted over the weekend, much to the chagrin of those who do know who she is. Video from the discussion subsequently went viral, which is, seemingly, what prompted West's tweet.

After a long hiatus, Kanye West has returned to Twitter, and his political opinions have left a lot of people shook.

Check out Alex Jones' open invitation to Kanye and his apology below.

In 2015, Jones published articles with headlines describing West as a "microcosm of America's degeneration".

The essence of Owens's (and West's) message is that the obsessive focus on historical racism as the determining factor in the lives of American blacks today victimizes them by stripping them of individual agency. To his credit, West stood by his original comment, tweeting, "Constantly bringing up the past keeps you stuck there", "self-victimization is a disease", and "demonization is metastasizing".

James Woods, the actor and Trump promoter, called West a "sage" and endorsed his music. Who could have imagined this? It's the weirdest thing I ever heard:'"I love oppression. Now he's my new guru!"

West's tweets sent Twitter users into a tailspin as they tried to wrap their social media minds around the new reality.

Let Kanye live. The rapper isn't a hero of the Right, nor has he discarded liberal politics. "Kanye has reached out".

It's not clear, however, that West wants the quarterback turned activist to be signed by any football team, or that Trump supporters would have any influence in making that happen even if he did. Instead, he seems interested in interacting with major thought leaders in the U.S. Before tweeting all of the Adams videos, West also sang praises for Elon Musk and his new Tesla auto.
