The sensationalist rapper who everyone loves to hate, Kanye West is spilling all the juicy details about the noticeable rift that has developed between him and former President Barack Obama in a nearly two-hour-long interview with the Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God.
West details how Obama came to him and begged for his support and he agreed – “Obama came to me before he ran for office and he met with me and my mother to let me know he was going to run for office because I am his favorite artist of all time.”
But Obama’s support of West was withdrawn after a 2009 incident at the MTV Video Music Awards after West interrupted Taylor Swift on stage going on a diatribe about how he believed Beyonce should have won rather than Swift. Despite West’s immediate apology, many viewers felt West’s boorish behavior was offputting were not terribly forgiving. Obama was even caught on film calling West names shortly after the events in question.
West expressed his disgust at the insincerity, stating: “He never called me to apologize. The same person that sat down with me and my mom I think should have communicated to me directly.”
West went on to troll Obama in a subtle but mocking way, conjuring up images of Obama frolicking in the surf with Richard Branson. “I love Obama! I’m sure we’ll hang out, go to Richard Branson’s island…. [It’ll] be cool”
Branson has dominated recent news coverage amongst implicated in the underage trafficking scandal that Hollywood star Allison Mack is facing indictment for and stemming from allegations that members of the Nxivm cult led by Mack reportedly held wild parties Branson’s private Caribbean island at least twice.
According to The Sun, several members, including co-founder Nancy Salzman, visited Branson’s Necker Island for two seminars in 2007 and 2010.
Former Nxivm publicist Frank Parlato told the newspaper: ‘I was told the reason they staged the seminars on Necker was they hoped to recruit Branson into the organization.’
Clearly, the comments were tongue in cheek as it is highly doubtful anyone, except investigators, will be visiting Branson’s island soon. Surely, West knows that.
West went on to speak of just how fickle Obama’s friendship was, conditional on what Obama needed out of West and frankly not true friendship at all. West seemed genuinely hurt remembering that time.
You can watch the controversial interview with Kanye West on YouTube.
“I think we were just in a period where he had so much stuff to deal with. You played Touch the Sky at your inauguration but all of a sudden Kendrick and Dre and all the people you invite to the White House, now these are your favorite rappers? I ain’t got no problem with these rappers, but you know I’m your favorite. But I’m not safe. But that’s why you love me! So just tell me you love me and tell the world you love me. Don’t tell the world I’m a jack-ss. I’m fighting hard enough.”
When asked what his own presidential campaign might look like West doesn’t make any further announcements about his own political run, but he does have an idea of how it might take shape. Explaining it is more likely to be a hybrid of the Trump campaign and perhaps the Bernie Sanders principles. West laughs and states, “That would be my mix. But I think both are needed.”
West explains why he has an affection for Donald Trump expanding on the same sentiment he expressed to T.I., Kanye says he loves Donald Trump because he feels they are both outsiders and seeing an outsider win the presidency gives him hope for himself. He states – “I don’t have all the answers that a celebrity is supposed to have. But I can tell you that when he was running, I felt something. The fact that he won proves something. It proved that anything is possible in America that Donald Trump could be president. I’m not talking about what he’s done since he’s been in office. Remember when I said I was gonna run for president? I had friends of mine making jokes, making memes, talking shit. Now it’s proven that that could happen … When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that. It’s a time for the unconventional.”
West states that President Trump made big promises on the campaign trail about bringing prosperity to the inner cities while West is himself another unconventional, self-made billionaire. Trump’s huge ideas, he is a New Yorker trying to make New York a better place. Meanwhile, Obama is from Chicago. West then dropped another bomb on Obama: “I also had a problem that Obama is from Chicago and Chicago is the murder capital of the world,”
Then he spoke of midterm fundraisers for the Obamas and again feeling used – “We did a fundraiser for a midterm for the Obamas in San Francisco. Right before I went onstage someone let me know that he had left. I felt away, bruh! I got feelins’, bro,” teased West. “Nobody owes me anything but I’m still going to feel what I feel.”
The fact that Kanye West—another unconventional, self-made billionaire—is not only echoing those ideas but meeting with the man himself and hinting about building factories and innovating new technology for housing should get most of us up out of our seats to cheer on this next phase of Making America Great Again. Something big is coming, and I’m not tired of winning.
West covered topics from the fashion industry to the music industry’s ownership of artists, saying that a career in music is like boxing. “More people end up retarded than rich,” he said.

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
