Having recently returned to Twitter, Kanye West has been feverishly disclosing his thoughts online, much to the amusement of his followers.
On Wednesday, West openly expressed his support for President Trump on Twitter, even calling him “brother.”
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Thank you Kanye, very cool! https://t.co/vRIC87M21X— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2018
This isn’t the first time the two have conveyed their respect for one another. When West declared his interest in running for president back in 2015, Trump responded, “I’ll never say bad [things] about him. You know why? Because he loves Trump. He loves Trump. He goes around saying, ‘Trump is my all-time hero.’ He says it to everybody. So Kanye West—I love him.”
Experiencing déjà vu, The New Yorker decided to recycle one of its past cover artworks by Barry Blitt—who’s known for his caricatures of the President—on its social media pages.
The September 2015 cover titled Kanye’s 2020 Vision imagines the oft-deadpan West following through with his plans of running for office. He holds a newspaper that reads, “Trump defeats Kanye,” but still looks like he won, anyway.
