Kanye West claimed that Donald Trump is a superhero and that wearing a red MAGA hat turns you into a Superman.
While sitting in the Oval Office, West said:
I love Hillary. I love everyone, right? But the campaign “I’m with her” just didn’t make me feel as a guy that didn’t get to see my dad all the time like a guy that could play catch with his son. It was something about when I put this hat on, it de me feel like Superman. That’s my favorite superhero. And you made a super cape for me. Also as a guy who looks up to you, who looks up to American industry guy, nonpolitical, no bullshit, put the bleep on it, however, you want to do it, goes in and gets it done. Right now, you gave me the heart to go to Adidas. Because at Adidas, when I went in in 2015, a $4 million people losing $2 billion a year. Now we have a $38 billion market cap. It’s called the Yeezy effect. And I went to Casper. We had a meeting in Chicago. And I said you have to bring manufacturing on shore. Not even on shore, into the core.
Chinese made MAGA hats will not give you superpowers. An allergic reaction possibly, but superpowers? No.
If American politics had not been hijacked by a crazy man, the insane ramblings of Kanye West would never have been given a platform in the Oval Office. While the Southeastern United States is getting pummeled by what was Hurricane Michael, Trump is laughing it up in the Oval Office with Kanye West.
This is what the presidency has deteriorated into being under Trump. MAGA hats do not make anyone more of a man. If anything, they are walking advertisements for mental illness, erectile dysfunction, and headwear that says I will die alone.
One of the major tasks of the next president will be to restore honor and seriousness back to the presidency. Also, it is going to take a lot elbow grease to get all of the Diet Coke and french fry stains off of the Resolute Desk.
