Rapper-turned-Gospel music producer Kanye West refuses to let the media have the final word on his support for President Donald Trump. The 42-year-old musician and clothing designer has generated his fair share of controversy in the last year, primarily for his support of the current president (someone many in Hollywood wouldn’t get caught dead praising,) and for turning his artistic ambitions to the message of Jesus Christ.
Hulu premiered its new series High Fidelity, an adaptation of a novel and movie of the same name, February 14. The twist was that the main character, Rob, who owns a record store, is an African American female instead of a Caucasian man in this remake. A far worse change is the show's treatment of rapper Kanye West for wearing a MAGA hat.
If there’s one thing Kanye West shouldn’t be worried about, it’s the elitist music critics who claim his most recent album is a bust. The hip hop artist and fashion-designer has just topped the official Billboard Music “Artist 100” Chart for the second time thanks to the influence of his recently-released Jesus Is King hip hop/Gospel album.
Think the left went crazy at Kanye West’s Trump support last year? Just wait until they get wind of his newest abortion comments in conjunction with his Christian hip hop album Jesus Is King, which was released on Friday. In a clip highlighted by pro-life groups from an October 25 interview with Big Boy TV, West talked about the effect Democrat policies have had on African Americans, including abortion:
In what many have seen as one of his more provocative moves to date, the larger-than-life rapper, producer, and clothing designer Kanye West has decided to take his new Christian-themed concerts to historically black Howard University, prompting more of the “Kanye, what are you doing?” responses from his former lefty colleagues who can’t stand that he’s an owner of a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Netflix’s season 2 of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman starts with an interview with rapper Kanye West, which leads to an enlightening conversation about Trump supporters getting bullied and media groupthink that liberals like Letterman don't often get to hear.
Freeform’s spin-off comedy Grown-ish, which originated from ABC's Black-ish and follows the Johnson family’s oldest daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) as she explores adult life in college, took a shot at controversial rapper Kanye West and his support for President Trump on Wednesday’s episode, “In My Feelings.”
The fallout from Thursday’s meeting of Kanye West and President Trump spilled over into that evening’s edition of CNN Tonight, when host Don Lemon asserted that he was not being condescending toward the rapper even while making disparaging remarks about West’s mental health. Instead, the CNN anchor claimed that he was “just telling the truth.”
Oh man, say what you will about Kanye, but the man’s great at reducing the left-wing media into a quivering and insecure pile of mush. The very fact that a prominent celebrity, who also happens to be a minority, has divorced himself from the showbiz victims’ circle has unleashed pure spite from his former colleagues. They have been stumbling over themselves to let him know that he’s no longer one of them, as he’s become an Uncle Tom.
During Thursday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo described the meeting between President Trump and rapper Kanye West as a “traveshamockery,” the exact same phrase he used to describe the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings before sexual assault allegations even emerged.
When it comes to the so-called mainstream media, it’s a case of Kanye West vs. Kanye West. The Networks on Thursday and Friday mocked the “bizarre,” “surreal” rapper for appearing at the White House with Donald Trump. But these outlets gushed over the “thoughtful” entertainer when he derided then-President George W. Bush as a racist.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Beat on MSNBC, race-obsessed New York Times columnist Michael Eric Dyson ranted against rapper Kanye West giving a pro-Donald Trump speech in the Oval Office, trashing his words as "white supremacy by ventriloquism."
