The Kanye & Donnie Show

A Category 4 hurricane, Hurricane Michael, has hit the Florida coast, killing at least 6 people, leaving 1.1 million homes and businesses without electricity and damaging thousands of homes.  A journalist for the Washington Post, Jamal Khashoggi, is missing and word is that he may have been murdered in Turkey in a hit ordered by Trump’s friend, Saudi Prince Khalid bin Salman.  Global markets have plunged for two consecutive days, leaving the Dow some 1,400 points lower than at the close on Tuesday.  Immigrant children are, despite a court order, still separated from their parents and being held in detention centers.  The IPCC report issued earlier this week is an eye-opener and the U.S.’ policy of ignoring climate change needs to be seriously re-considered.

Those are just a few of the things that the ‘man’ sitting in the Oval Office must be very concerned about, must be meeting with advisors and asking for more information about, yes?

No.Kanye West-TrumpDonald Trump’s big achievement, if one chooses to call it such, yesterday was a meeting with a rapper, Kanye West, where the two discussed such important issues as West’s sleep deprivation, street gangs, and ‘male energy’, whatever the heck that is.  Apparently West went off on a monologue that lasted nearly ten minutes, and at the end, he and Trump declared their mutual love for each other (won’t Kim Jong-un be jealous?).  Here are a few snippets …

  • … you know, I love Hillary, I love everyone, right? But the campaign “I’m With Her” just didn’t make me feel, as a guy that didn’t get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son. How did he get from point A to point B here?  Does anybody follow this sentence?  All I’m getting out of it is a huge dose of misogyny

  • It was something about putting this hat [maga hat] on, it made me feel like Superman. You made a Superman. That’s my favorite superhero. And you made a Superman cape for me, also as a guy that looks up to you, looks up to Ralph Lauren, looks up to American industry guys, non-political, no bulls—t — put the beep on it, however you want to do it, five-seconds delay — and just goes in, and gets it done! Does he think he’s onstage? 

  • So I had the balls – because I had enough balls to put on this hat. I thought only a head was requisite for a hat …

  • There’s a lot of things affecting our mental health that makes us do crazy things that puts us back into that trap door called the 13th Amendment. I did say abolish with the hat on, because why would you keep something around that’s a trap door? If you’re building a floor, the Constitution is the base of our industry, right? Of our country, of our company. Would you build a trap door that if you mess up, accidentally something happens, you fall and you end up next to the Unabomber? Huh? What is he even talking about???  🙄

  • I’m gonna go ahead and drop some bombs for you — 98 percentile IQ test. I had a 75 percentile of all human beings, but it was counting eight numbers backwards, repeating something. We’re gonna work on that one. The other ones, 98 percent — Tesla, Freud. You know. No wonder he and Trump get on so well … they are both idiotic, delusional, self-proclaimed geniuses.

I think you’ve heard/read enough to realize that … this was probably among the least important, least relevant people that Trump could have spent time with yesterday, and why he did is beyond me.  Oh … wait … no, I get it.  It was the praise thing.  Kanye West is a huge Trump fan (though he didn’t vote for him – didn’t vote at all, actually) and they had a few moments of mutual admiration.

Not a fan of rap music, I know almost nothing of Kanye West other than I knew he was/is a rap singer and I knew he was/is married to one of those Kardashian bimbos.  I heard enough, however, in this little impromptu speech to know that he is definitely not somebody I admire, so you might imagine my horror when somewhere near the end of his little soliloquy he noted that he might consider a run for the presidency, but not until 2024 because …

“Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy [expletive] like him.  I love this guy right here.”

Impossible, right?  Yeah, well, that’s what I said in June 2015 when Trump announced his candidacy, too, and look how well that worked out.  Meanwhile, perhaps Trump can give him a cabinet position … or perhaps he might even replace Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the United Nations!
