While reporting on the increasingly public bromance between President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West on Wednesday, Fox News' Shep Smith couldn't keep from laughing.


"Well, there's a thing going on," the host said at the beginning of his segment on the pair's Twitter accolades. "It's Kanye West, who didn't tweet for a long time but now he's back. There's an album and he's running for president in 2024 and he really likes President Trump."

"Kanye West tweeted a lot of things," Smith recounted. "But one of them is, 'you don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't not make me not love him.'"

The host seemed particularly enamored with West's use of the term "dragon energy," which he dubbed the "phrase of the day."

Continuing his explanation of the tweeted love fest, Smith reminded viewers that the rapper is married to Kim Kardashian West, and that the pair "have children together and things" when noting that West tweeted about his wife calling him to make sure his fans know he doesn't agree completely with the president.

"My guess is Kris Jenner gave a call," the host said, referring to Kardashian West's mother.

"Now POTUS has tweeted," Smith said. "We'll see what happens."
