As Twitchy reported, rapper Kanye West took to Twitter Wednesday to explain that, though he doesn’t agree with everything President Trump does, he considers Trump his brother and admits that they “are both dragon energy.” He also tweeted a photo of his signed MAGA cap.
It’s all too much for a lot of progressives to bear, and Barack Obama’s former speechwriter and “Pod Save America” host Jon Favreau demanded that people stop giving West attention.
Stop giving Kanye the attention he’s desperate for. Last time we did that, some huge asshole become president.

Anyone else remember this? “To Kanye & Kim — Thanks for the support.” We don’t remember any complaints back then about West being an attention hound.
So West, a mega-celebrity who’s released several platinum and multi-platinum albums, is suddenly “desperate for attention?” And decided to express that desperation by tweeting that he liked the way Candace Owens thinks, thus becoming an “alt-right darling”?
Come on — it really is repugnant that West isn’t allowed to express an independent thought without his mental health being questioned.
Everyone listen to the nerds they know what’s best. don’t give the greatest artist of our generation ANY attention. https://t.co/52fdGdauTG

This is the sound of the progressive left losing its grasp on the minds of Americans it tries to control through identity politics.

Yeah…gotta get back to calling everyone who disagrees with you some form of bigot. You know, the strategy that would've worked if not for Kanye spending one day with Trump. https://t.co/OoEL7nDmJv

If he tweeted “Hillary won the popular vote” you’d be begging him to appear on your Obama-sycophancy podcast https://t.co/PTfj7ntvOm

It's definitely Kanye's fault and not the Democrats. They certainly did not let us down. https://t.co/oApvMJYx4b
