President Trump says Kanye West has ‘Good Taste’

Written by Onan Coca

The blooming bromance between President Trump and rap superstar Kanye West has been running wild across the Internet.

It has shocked and dismayed Kanye’s Hollywood community, it has terrified Democrats and their leftwing supporters, and it has caused nothing but bemusement on the part of President Trump’s supporters.

Here’s a bit of their back and forth from Twitter earlier this week, after Kanye came out in support of one of President Trump’s YouTube supporters, Candace Owens.

You can understand now why the Internet was going wild over the the Kanye-Trump lovefest.

On Thursday morning, the President phoned in to Fox & Friends and the subject of the Trump-Kanye connection naturally came up. Thankfully, the President had plenty of interesting things to say about his friendship with the free-thinking entertainer.

Ainsley Earhardt: We want to get to Kanye West. He tweeted that he loves you, that you’re his brother, and the left goes ballistic.

President Trump: He’s got good taste.

Earhardt: What’s your reaction?

President Trump: Yes. Well, they do.

You know, I have known Kanye a little bit and I get along with Kanye. I get along with a lot of people, frankly.

But Kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country, OK? He sees Hispanic unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country. He sees, by the way, female unemployment — women unemployment the lowest it’s been in now almost 19 years.

He sees that stuff and he’s smart. And he says you know what, Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did. 

And by the way, if they ever got in and started putting back all these rules and regulations where you can’t breathe, where businesses go out of business, our country would be in big trouble.
