Published

on

Controversial musician Kayne West joined TMZ Newsroom to try and rehabilitate his image after his tweetstorm praising President Donald Trump.

Harvey Levin asked West, who is married to Kim Kardishan, about the message he was trying to send by donning a “Make America Great Again” hat in support of President Trump.

“It was really just my subconscious, it was a feeling I had,” West explained. “I just love Trump, that’s my boy.”

West expounded on his support for Trump by suggesting forced slavery is a conspiracy theory and that in practice, it was a choice by blacks.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” West argued. “Like, you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?”

Not everyone was impressed with West continuing to defend Trump.

“I actually don’t think you’re thinking anything,” shouted Van Lathan, from the TMZ newsroom, as he stood up. “I think what you’re doing right now is actually the absence of thought.”

“The rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives,” he reminded. “We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said, for our people, was a choice.”

“Frankly, I’m disappointed, I’m appalled,” Lathan continued. “And brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that’s not real.”

“Bro, you got to be responsible man,” he lectured the superstar.

“She was a part of the greatest political crime of the Century, and ObamaBiden knew EVERYTHING! Sally Yates leaked the General Flynn conversation? Ask her under oath. Republicans should start playing the Democrats game!“

Graham is accusing former Justice Department officials of abusing their power by surveilling some Trump’s associates during their investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Trump makes pitch on Catholic TV: ‘Catholics like their Second Amendment so I saved the Second Amendment’

Published

President Donald Trump this week made a pitch to Catholic voters based on his assertion that he "saved the Second Amendment."

In a Tuesday interview with the Catholic TV network EWTV, correspondent Tracy Sabol asked Trump if he had a message for Catholic voters.

"Well, I think anybody having to do with, frankly, religion, but certainly the Catholic Church, you have to be with President Trump when it comes to pro-life, when it comes to all of the things, these people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment," the president said, "because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment. So I saved the Second Amendment."

Published

CNN's Jim Acosta must have struck a nerve with President Donald Trump.

“He still doesn’t get it,” the source said. “He does not get it.”

As some members of the task force tried to stress the dire nature of the situation to the president during the meeting, the source said Trump repeatedly attempted to change the subject.
