Trump thanks MAGA-hat-wearing Kanye and we’re just done with this


Trump thanks MAGA-hat-wearing Kanye and we're just done with thisAfter flirting with Trump and his supporters in a number of tweets over the past week, Kanye West went all in on Wednesday, posting a photo on Twitter of him wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.  And, naturally, the president has chimed in with a message of thanks for all of his support.  Thank you Kanye, very cool! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2018 That is more than enough — but, wait, it gets weirder! In the photo Kanye posted, he's alongside two men, one of whom is flashing a sign some have linked to white power members of the alt-right.  The two men are, left, Lucian Grainge, head of Universal Music, and Lyor Cohen, center, currently head of Global Music at YouTube.  we got love — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 That's Cohen flashing the "OK" sign and this is where things get messy. The "OK" sign still means just that: everything is ok! But it's 2018 and that same hand signal has been appropriated by the alt-right, starting out as a prank by members of 4chan but evolving into "a thing" because it's been used so much.
UPDATE: April 25, 2018, 3:52 p.m. PDT Cohen issued the following statement following the publication of this story: If that's not messy enough, there's no way to know if Cohen actually means it or if he's just trolling us since Kanye has set off a deafening buzz by defending Trump and some of his supporters in multiple tweets over the past several days. It's worth noting he's done so on Twitter before, though. 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 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 This much we do know, though, thanks to a follow-up tweet: his MAGA hat is signed, maybe from when Kanye visited Trump in Trump Tower post-election. my MAGA hat is signed ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Aaaaaaaand then Kanye tweeted this because what is even happening? Some sort of social media inception. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Maybe this is where we all get off this train and throw our phones into the sea?
