Another hour has passed on this apocryphal Wednesday, which means we now have a new batch of Kanye West tweets to write an entire article about.
According to his latest tweetstorm, Kanye West considers Trump his "brother" because they're both "dragon energy." West also called truth "subjective," joked that he was "all the way out" of the Sunken Place, said he has "love" for Hillary Clinton, and alerted everyone to his continued refusal to stop loving Trump.
Free thinkers don't fear retaliation for your thoughts. The traditional thinkers are only using thoughts and words but they are in a mental prison. You are free. You've already won. Feel energized. Move in love not fear. Be afraid of nothing.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
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
If your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
I love Hillary too.
I love when people have their own ideas. You don't have to be allowed anymore. Just be.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Love who you want to love. That's free thought. I'm not even political. I'm not a democrat or a republican
And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
with love I am invincible. Truth is subjective but love is the most powerful force in the world and the world needs to express more of it.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
I said express love more because we have love but we don't express it. My friend Tmills will always say "I love you" and it used to make me feel weird to hear that. Now I tell everyone I love them. He sparked me to start expressing love more.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
no race religion region or political party can argue with the power of love— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Later, West revealed that Kim Kardashian had just called to tell him to say that he doesn't "agree with everything" Trump does. Yet he's still publicly expressing adoration for this guy?
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
Shortly after he attempted to defend his views on Trump, Kanye posted a shared a photo of him with Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge and YouTube's global head of music Lyor Cohen. And he was rocking a "Make America Great Again" hat. He tweeted a second photo of a signed MAGA hat, which caught the attention of his friend and creative collaborative, Tracey Mills.

West said he, Grainge, and Cohen had met to discuss the creation of a music platform.
I'm sitting with Lucian discussing the future of the music industry. Lets bring in David Joseph and Frank Bridgman and Olivier Nusse.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
I'd like Scooter Braun to be a part of this new platform we're creating. Scooter is a genius. He's more than a manager so is Irving. We all need to sit together.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
If West is trying to make the point that we should all love everyone, there are certainly far less jeopardous ways to do so. Furthermore, is speaking generically about "loving everyone" or whatever even a remotely original concept? No, and it's particularly glaring when Hobby Lobby-esque feel-good quotes are being tweeted from the account of one of the most daringly original artists in history.
Trump later responded to Kanye's tweets of support:
Thank you Kanye, very cool! https://t.co/vRIC87M21X— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2018
After getting a reply from POTUS, West announced a potential meeting with Peter Thiel, the Trump-supporting billionaire who essentially funded Gawker's demise.
I'm so happy to hear that Peter Thiel would like to take a meeting. I feel very optimistic about the future.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
West has two albums due in June, so we should probably expect all of this to continue for the next several months. Then again, I honestly have no idea what's going on.
