Trump praises Kanye West for his 'great taste' on Fox & Friends

Posted April 27, 2018

"Your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary".

On Wednesday, Kardashian West blamed "the media" for pushing the idea that her husband was mentally ill for supporting the president.

Shortly before he was forced to cancel the "Saint Pablo Tour" past year on account of his hospitalization, West expressed how he would have voted for Donald Trump in the last USA election. "Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this", Kardashian tweeted. "So I'm glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening".

Teigen joked about West's vocal support of the president when she referred to Happy Days star Scott Baio, who is also a Trump fan.

West has long appeared to be fascinated with the possibilities of the presidential platform: In 2015, he seemed to enjoy provoking the public into believing he was interested in a 2020 run.

"I think it's a shame", Carlson replied. And in December 2016, after he was hospitalized for a "psychiatric emergency", West visited Trump, then the president-elect, at Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Recorded in his home studio - which he jokingly referred to as "the sunken place" due to the plethora of Get Out memes that have been fired at him over the past year - the clip came about after the rapper invited TMZ's Harvey Levin to his offices.

Some celebrities have left no room for such speculation however, openly criticizing Kanye's pro-Trump musings with John Legend alluding to West being in racial denial.

"When he spoke out about Trump..." But this is HIS opinion. If your freethinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to opress black people and minorities, I think it's bullshit and it's not OK. "He by no means mentioned he agrees along with his politics".

"He's smart. He says, 'You know what, Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did, '" Trump added.

Members of the Kardashian family have reportedly unfollowed Kanye West on Twitter.

Of course, that Kanye isn't bleeding support for saying he loves Trump doesn't make the situation any less weird.

On Thursday, West posted on Twitter a screenshot of a text message conversation between the two of them. What began as a series of tweets revealing he's parted ways with his manager Scooter Braun and bragging about his Yeezy apparel company, evolved into the rapper sharing his love for President Trump, which resulted in some backlash.
