Quick disclaimer: I feel like this goes without saying, but if you’re to the right of things and pro-Trump, maybe you shouldn’t continue reading. I mean, it’s been pretty clear where I stand blog-wise, so why are you even wasting your time reading my shit? Are you that bored? I’m Canadian for Christ’s sake. My opinion shouldn’t matter to you at all (someone comments that my opinion doesn’t matter in 3, 2…)
Anyway, Kanye West continued his tonguing Donald Trump’s asshole tour today by heading to the White House today with a slew of cameras to talk about how amazing Trump is and that wearing a MAGA hat makes him feel like Superman. Ok, cool.
For a long time, I was wondering if Kanye’s obsession with Trump was some sort of performance art. I mean, this is the guy who called out George W. Bush for not caring about black people, and now here he is putting the man who said some neo-Nazi’s were fine people on a fucking pedestal. Something didn’t add up. But now I’m really at the point where I’m just fucking done with Kanye West.
It had gotten to the point that Kanye West has revealed his misogyny too deeply for me to ever go back with him. I mean, Kanye has always been a bit misogynistic, between his music and the way he’s spoken about Amber Rose, and even his own wife and her sisters, it’s kind of like “Man, I don’t know that Kanye respects women”, but last week, Donald Trump got on stage at a rally and openly mocked a woman who had opened up about her attempted sexual assault. Even if you think that Dr. Ford was lying to appease the Democrats, there is something fundamentally wrong with the president of the United States mocking a potential rape victim at a rally. Even his fellow Republicans thought it was in poor taste and that he shouldn’t have done it. That just isn’t how you treat another human being. Period.
So for Kanye West, a man that was raised by a single mother, a man who married into an extremely female-oriented family, a man who has two daughters at home, to continue to promote a man who brags about grabbing women by the pussy and then openly mocks women who come forward about sexual assault, just reveals something about Kanye West that he can’t take back. Kanye West, much like Trump, is deeply egocentric and misogynistic, and I think they’re both the same brand of mentally unwell.
Before you come at me and say I’m just some left-wing bitch and have no right calling Trump or West mentally unwell, I would like to point out that there are literally millions of Republicans I don’t agree with politically but would never call mentally unwell. I would never call either Bush or John McCain mentally unwell. I would never call the majority of Trump’s cabinet mentally unwell. Do I agree with them morally, ethically, or politically? No. Do I think they need psychiatric treatment because of this? Of course not. I would never suggest that someone who disagrees with my beliefs needs their head checked. However, I don’t even think Donald Trump is a Republican. Most of his values fail to match up, mainly because he seems to lack any morals whatsoever. Unfortunately, I now feel the same about Kanye West.
I’m sorry that this blog wasn’t funny, but the reality tv show that is American politics isn’t funny to me. It’s concerning.
And if, even after my disclaimer, you stayed on this blog and read it all and feel some bizarre need to comment some hateful shit, I’ll say this: You. Are. Not. Well. There is literally something wrong with you. I don’t go out in search of right wing shit to comment on and be a bitch. Grow the fuck up.
And now, this:
