As Twitchy reported earlier, rapper Kanye West actually inspired a “Twitter Moment” this weekend when he tweeted on Saturday, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.”
That led to a further crossing of the streams on Monday, when “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams posted a video showing how “Kanye showed the way to The Golden Age” — a video which West promptly reposted by recording the video playing on his laptop screen and tweeting the results.
Adams was certainly prescient with this tweet:
Watch the avalanche of fake news stories about to come out about me. Like fuel to the fire.

We don’t know if it’s really a “fake news” story, but Mediaite calling Scott Adams “far-right”? That’s some fake news.

It increasingly feels like anyone who isn't a card-carrying social justice warrior is "far-right." https://t.co/MGqFX2aVIr

The term "Far-right" has been rendered essentially meaningless at this point — by the same people who brought you "everyone who disagrees with me is Nazi". #KanyeWest #ScottAdams #Dilbert https://t.co/6Lo65LFhnU

Why does Mediate and Buzzfeed call anyone who is anti group-think "far-right" https://t.co/NTE46fwZK1

Far-Right? It must seem so to everyone who is so 'far left'.

Far-right now means "not a Democrat/liberal." https://t.co/FDjZWQ8rnK

He's "Far-Right" because he's pro-Trump? He has "Extreme Thoughts?" Get a Grip. https://t.co/sDu8C3PyJr

All of this comes after BuzzFeed outed Adams as a “men’s right’s activist.”
'Good WORK.' Scott Adams DROPPED BuzzFeed for their investigative FAIL calling him a men's rights activist https://t.co/LE6aLEESyD
