West's series of pro-Trump tweets attracted the attention of POTUS himself, and it predictably sent the social media platform into a meltdown. Many users, including movie stars Jordan Peele and Samuel L. Jackson, poked fun at the interaction.
One tweeter suggested that this West "gotta be a clone" of the rapper who in 2005 slammed former President George W. Bush for not caring about black people after Hurricane Katrina.
Another warned that West ― who on Tuesday teased a presidential run in 2024 ― was now using Twitter "exactly how Trump did during the 2016 election. Erratic, outrageous and often confusing bursts of tweets that drive the national discourse."
Trump last 24 hours...
Kanye- "Very Cool"
Kim Jong Un- "Honorable"
Dr. Ronny Jackson- "Good Man"
James Shaw Jr.- Nothing

Waiting for the Kanye brain meme that starts off with "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and ends with galaxy brain "but Donald Trump does"

kris jenner, never removing her sunglasses, walks into a bank, where she is greeted by a nervous-looking employee. he walks her through the vault to her safety deposit box. "Thank you, you can leave now," she tells him. she opens the box, and pulls out an envelope labeled "KANYE"

Kanye West, 2005: George Bush doesn't care about black people.
Kanye West, 2018: I don't care that Donald Trump doesn't care about black people.
