‘WTF is happening?’: Internet loses it over Trump and Kanye’s revived bromance

Published

on

Nearly a year-and-a-half after their infamous meeting of the minds at Trump Tower following the 2016 presidential election, rapper Kanye West and President Donald Trump appear to have reunited following a series of tweets in which the artist openly endorsed the president. Twitter, as is their custom, is completely losing it as West goes full MAGA.

One user mused that Trump-supporting West has “gotta be a clone” of the man who criticized then-President George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina for not caring about black people.

BuzzFeed News’ Darren Sands, meanwhile, found a surprising similarity between the two men: that they were both “humiliated in public by Barack Obama” and don’t appear to have “recovered” from it.

Keith Boykin, a former Obama White House staffer and current CNN commentator, noted that Trump’s use of West’s views, which are “non-representative” of African Americans as a group, is part of “a long history dating back to slavery” and that he’s doing so “to justify the policies of white supremacy.”

The National Basketball Association was protested on Friday for bowing to pressure from China.

The NBA has been harshly criticized for standing by the oppressive regime instead of standing in solidarity with the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

"Producer and activist Andrew Duncan bought 300 tickets to tonight's Nets vs Raptors game and is hosting hundreds of Chinese pro-Democracy activists to protest the NBA," New York magazine correspondent Yashar Ali reported Friday. "They're all wearing 'Stand With Hong Kong' T-shirts."

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.

"The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."

Published

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."
