Trump Went on Fox News and Called Kanye West a 'Genius'

'Yandhi' season continues its depressing limp towards the finish line with more Kanye West ass-kissing from Trump, who likely only knows "Gold Digger."

For the latest stop on his "Let Me Piss All Over My Legacy and My Fans" tour, Kanye West will visit the White House. As we've gruelingly reported time and time again, the White House is currently plagued with the presence of part-time squatter Donald Trump, a dilapidated senior citizen who swears he's POTUS and is really into wearing and selling ugly red hats. West, formerly known as an artist, is really into those hats and has recently enjoyed waxing nonsensical about them in public.

During a recent appearance on what is arguably state-run media, Trump praised West (despite very likely not being able to name even a single West song aside from maybe "Gold Digger") and touted his support's alleged impact on black voters. "First of all, I like him a lot," Trump told the Fox & Friends dolts. "He's been a friend of mine. I've known him for a long time. He's a very different kind of a guy. I say that in a positive way. Those that are in the music business say that he's a genius, and that's ok with me because as far as I'm concerned, he is . . . He's got a big following in the African-American community, a big big following . . . He's really a great guy. You know what he wants? He's not asking for anything for himself."

Trump also mentioned that West is apparently concerned with prison reform and shouted out Kim Kardashian. There's video of all this out there somewhere, but I'm not embedding that shit. Find it yourself.

While some reports have gone out of their way to wonder if any of this is genuine, I'd rather do my readers the favor of not bullshitting them: Trump is using West. Period. Just like he used Kim Kardashian. Despite whatever PR concoction comes of West's visit, those are the facts.

At this rate, why not just delay Yandhi indefinitely?
