The situation gets worse. POTUS was apparently so moved by the challenge desirous to feed his unending need for attention and distraction, he decided to reward some of the participants with an invitation to perform at the White House. 

Who's responsible for the #MAGAChallenge? According to the Daily Dot, this all started in September, when Bryson Gray dropped a verse for his "MAGA Boy"—a song that addresses identity politics and backlash experienced by black Trump supporters.

"I think the MAGA challenge is doing what everybody expected Kanye West to do for the [Trump] campaign," Gray told the Daily Dot, before insisting that "not all Trump voters and GOP are stick ups."
