In the Kanye MAGA Saga, John Legend Is the Hero We Deserve
Lainey linked to some Kanye Krazy yesterday in Pajiba Love, but things have not gotten better since the backlash over his Tweets proclaiming Trump to be awesome. It all started innocently enough, with Kanye tweeting stream of consciousness things that were interesting and not inflammatory.
Fear often causes people to be manipulative— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 17, 2018
I can agree with that statement. Tell me more.
be transparent as possible. Stop setting plays. Stop playing chess with life. Make decisions based on love not fear.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 17, 2018
Be here now. Be in the moment. The now is the greatest moment of our lives and it just keeps getting better. The bad parts the boring parts the parts with high anxiety. Embrace every moment for its greatness. This is life. This is the greatest movie we will ever see.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 18, 2018
Hmmm. You’ve given me something to think about.
I love the way Candace Owens thinks— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018
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
If your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
I love Hillary too.
And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
The Republican far right of Trump supporters rushed to claim Kanye as one of their own as a sign that they aren’t racist fucksticks. Meanwhile, famous friends started texting Kanye concern, prompting Ye to tweet those conversations out as well. Shining bright among them was a conversation with John Legend.
I really appreciate this dialogue with John Legend because I'm actually very empathetic. Im still the kid from the telethon. I feel when people think of MAGA they don't think of empathy.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018
On one hand, okay? I understand thinking that empathy and understanding will help things to a point. But T&*p said that neo-nazis and non-racists both had “some very fine people”. No. No they don’t. It seems that Kanye is stirring up controversy in anticipation of his many projects. At least Kim has a sense of humor?
@KimKardashian are we still doing dinner Friday or no lol— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) April 26, 2018
Yes but maybe no phones 🤣📵📵📵📵😂 https://t.co/zIEZS28DXC— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 26, 2018
Getting back to John Legend and his lovely wife, Chrissy Teigen, have you seen their new ad for Google Duo? It’s an app on Android phones (and I guess other non-Apple phones) that acts like Facetime does on an iPhone. Not only does this commercial have John and Chrissy with their chemistry, it also gives a shout out to beloved internet meme Arthur and his angry fist — and the internet’s insistence that Legend resembles the kid show aardvark.
