If there was one thing that was immensely entertaining about 2018, it was Kanye West’s friendship with President Donald Trump. First, it’s a massive cultural win, politics flows from this, and West, or Ye, surely broke off from the progressive ethos that dominates the entertainment centers of America. Second, it irritates the Left to no end that a successful black hip-hop artist likes Trump, his message, free thought, and the hat, the ever-present Make America Great Again hat. The Left brought up his mental health history, and said this is what happens when “negroes don’t read.” That’s the Left. You walk away from the herd, and they will destroy you. It’s a must-do; it’s an authoritarian mindset. Freedom to choose, except when it comes to the unborn, is a big no-no.
Earlier this year, Kanye visited Trump in a highly publicized Oval Office visit, where the liberal media was appalled. The outrage was just delicious to watch, and then Kanye said he was stepping back from politics, claiming he had been used. Well, that honeymoon is over. As we ushered in the New Year, he declared his affinity for Trump, the MAGA hat, message, free expression, and vowed to perform with that hat on this year (via Billboard):
Kanye West took to Twitter on New Year's Day to make it clear where he stands politically in 2019.
"Trump all day," he wrote, followed by dragon emojis -- likely calling back to tweets from April in which he said he and Donald Trump share "dragon energy," which he defined as "natural born leaders," "very instinctive" and "great foresight."
"They will not program me. Blacks are 90% Democrats," West tweeted. "That sounds like control to me."
It was quite the Twitter thread [Warning: some strong language]:

One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black— ye (@kanyewest) January 1, 2019
From now on I’m performing with my mutherf**king hat on ??????— ye (@kanyewest) January 1, 2019
So, pro-Trump Kanye is back. The dragon energy has returned.
