Kanye West Leaves Studio Wearing MAGA Hat

Kanye West put his love for Donald Trump on full display as he donned his MAGA hat while leaving his California studio not long after he traded adoring tweets with the president and blasted former president Barack Obama on Twitter.

West was spotted walking out of his Calabasas studio with a smoothie in one hand and his cell phone in the other.

Along with his MAGA hat, he sported a pair of dark shorts, sneakers, and a t-shirt, accompanied by a light grey jacket as he chatted with his entourage.

His public appearance came shortly after he exchanged tweets with the president earlier on Wednesday.

The love affair between West and Trump intensified as the rapper showed off another MAGA hat that was signed by the president and took aim at Obama – despite Kim Kardashian’s attempts to step in.

His public appearance came shortly after he exchanged tweets with the president earlier on Wednesday

West proclaimed that the mob ‘can’t make me not love’ Trump and praised the President’s ‘dragon energy’.

‘You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,’ he wrote.

‘We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals.’

He later revealed that his MAGA hat is signed by the President himself, posting a picture of the accessory, which itself prompted another reply from Trump which simply read: ‘MAGA!’

Trump later retweeted the message and wrote: ‘Thank you Kanye, very cool!’

Later on Wednesday evening, West turned his attention to former president Barack Obama, tweeting: ‘Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.’ However, he declared his respect for Hillary Clinton, writing ‘I love Hillary too’.

Kanye then retweeted a post in which President Trump was expressing his excitement about meeting Apple CEO Tim Cook with the caption, ‘Can’t wait to meet’.

Next, he posted a photo of Trump and Cook speaking together and said ‘caption this photo’.

Seconds later he wrote: ‘2 of my favorite people’ before retweeting Trump’s ‘MAGA’ tweet again.

After that, he posted messages which had apparently been sent by popular New York radio host Ebro Darden that seemed to discuss the rapper’s support for Trump.

‘159 employees to go,’ he wrote.

Darden yesterday claimed that rapper had previously battled an opioid addiction.

Eric Trump also got on the Kanye train, retweeting the same tweet his dad did and adding a few American flag emojis as well.

Less than an hour after he posted his original tweet, West revealed that his wife Kim Kardashian had called him about the Trump tweet.

‘My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does,’ he wrote.

‘I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself.’

In December of 2016, he actually met with Trump but soon after deleted all his post about the President after he was hit with a wave of criticism

Kardashian took to her own Twitter account to defend West and said he was ‘years ahead of his time’.

‘Now when he spoke about Trump…Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this,’ she began.

‘But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics.’

In a separate tweet, Kardashian reiterated that she loved and respected her husband.

‘Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him,’ she said.

Donald Trump Jr later tweeted his support following Kardashian’s defense of West, using the 2016 Clinton hashtag #ImWithHer

And he then retweeted a post from Chance The Rapper which read, ‘Black people don’t have to be Democrats’

‘And in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time.’

Kardashian also hit back at the media, which she said was trying to ‘demonize’ West.

‘Your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary,’ she wrote. ‘So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.’

Donald Trump Jr jumped in to show his support for Kardashian, retweeting her defense of West and adding #ImWithHer – the hashtag originally used to show support for Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

And he then retweeted a post from Chance The Rapper which read, ‘Black people don’t have to be Democrats.’

Donald Jr wrote: ‘It’s always incredible to watch a cultural shift happen in real time. I respect those willing to take the lead breaking with convention. That takes guts… though there’s a better word for it.’

West’s public support for Trump even made its way into the discussion at the White House press briefing on Wednesday.

A reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if Trump had reached out to West following the rapper’s recent praise.

‘I don’t know of any conversation that they’ve had over the last week or so, I’ll keep you posted if that changes,’ Sanders said, breaking into a smile.

‘I know they met during the transition, that’s the only meeting I’m aware of what’s taken place or conversation.’

At 1.30PST West posted a screengrab, which appears to be from his longtime collaborator Tracey Mills, texting him that they needed to talk about his Make America Great Again hat

West first revealed his support for Trump shortly after the November 2016 election, when he told a California concert audience he would have voted for the Republican.

‘I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump,’ he said.

‘We live in a racist country. That is a fact. This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much.’

But in a separate tweet on Wednesday, Kanye wrote that he also loved Clinton, who Kardashian publicly supported in the 2016 presidential election.

‘If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same,’ he began. ‘Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you.’

‘For people in my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too.’

The rapper continued to discuss free thought, saying he loves when ‘people have their own ideas’.

‘You don’t have to be allowed anymore. Just be. Love who you want to love. That’s free thought,’ he wrote.

‘I’m not even political. I’m not a democrat or a republican.’
