Mental Illness on Display in Oval Office, and This Time It’s Not Trump

Filed in National by on October 11, 2018

I’m no Yeezy fan, but I must admit Kanye achieved the near-impossible today at the White House — he went on a mind-bending diatribe that kept Donald Trump quiet for 10 entire minutes. That happens as often as scientists observe a Higgs boson.

West ostensibly was there to discuss such serious issues as prison reform and jobs programs, his stream of consciousness quickly entered choppy water. In no particular order, he said:

* He couldn’t relate to Hillary’s “I’m With Her” slogan because it didn’t have “male energy”

* His MAGA hat “makes him feel like Superman”

* Trump is “on a hero’s journey right now, and he might not have expected to have a crazy motherfucker like Kanye West” support him.

* He was misdiagnosed as bipolar; he was merely sleep-deprived.

That last one is a dead tell to anyone with bipolar relatives. The lack of sleep is typical of manic episodes, as is the denial of the disorder. Both give rise to the suspicion that Mr. West is off his meds, which is the constant struggle with mania — it’s as intoxicating as a cocaine binge, and how could anyone feeling that wonderful need medicine?

When Ye finished, all Trump had was, “I tell you what, that was pretty impressive. That was quite something.”

Jesus made a dumb man speak. Yeezy struck a dumb man dumb.

UPDATE: After leaving the White House, Kanye decided to visit a D.C. Apple store unannounced and proceeded to climb on a table, where he continued his Oval Office remarks.

    For being married to a Kardashian, I think Kanye has held up remarkably well.

    loling at the people who are at all shocked. Kanye has always been a nut ball.

    Speaking of artists who’s (original) songs I couldn’t sing or name if you tortured me….. Props to Taylor Swift for risking Dixie-chicking her career to save the country. If Tennessee goes Dem, I’ll forgive her for that awful cover of September.

    Taylor Swift needs to do a big GOTV concert in Tennessee.
