Stephen Colbert Begs Kanye West to Stop Tweeting

  • KANYE WEST on Twitter:

West tweeted another text screenshot between him and Legend.

The interview turned out to be mostly a monologue by the president in which he recited a litany of his favorite talking points - no collusion with Russian Federation, leaker/liar James Comey, the fake news media, his election victory, distrust of the Justice Department, etc. - and the show's hosts often struggled to get a word in edgewise.

After Kanye West came out as a Trump supporter over the weekend, he received a massive backlash from the left. "I get along with a lot of people, frankly", Trump said. "But artists can't be blind to the truth", tweeted Legend.

Other celebrities indirectly called the rapper out.

If the alliance between the Knowles-Carter clan and the Obamas was about a coalescence of grace and cool, West and Trump's union is about unflinching narcissism and the startling efficacy of exploiting your cult of celebrity for personal gain.

Justin Bieber, BTS, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar are among the stars who have jumped Kanye's Twitter ship.

However not everybody has condemned West for his controversial statements.

Mentioning that Chance the Rapper also tweeted, writing, "Black People don't have to be Democrats", Doocy asked if Trump thought the black community had been ignored by Republicans of the past. West tweeted multiple photos of his house on Wednesday to prove that he was not in the sunken place, which Peele jokingly cited as inspiration for a sequel.

Legend, his wife Chrissy Teigen, Kanye and Kim have been friends for quite a while and it's unclear if Kanye's move will affect that relationship.

While she defended her husband's rant, she clarified that while she respects her husband, they have different political views.

He also expressed some support for Hillary Clinton...

"Now when he spoke out about Trump..."

Now, however, some Fox News opinion hosts have discovered a new appreciation of West, whom Hannity described on his program Wednesday as "one of America's most iconic rappers". "But this is HIS opinion. If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people or minorities, I think it's bulls-t and it's not OK". "He never said he agrees with his politics".
