Singer Shania Twain isn't even American. She’s Canadian. But during an interview with a British newspaper, she said she would have voted for Donald Trump.
(Just a reminder that over 60 million Americans did — probably a lot of them are Shania Twain fans, too...)
The Media Party will accept anything — drug use, alcoholism, physical abuse — but supporting Trump? That's going too far.
So she was pushed out to apologize:
'I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current president,' Canadian singer says
(How many Hollywood stars, music stars, have been pressed to say they don’t share any moral beliefs with the Clintons — a corrupt family?)
That was nothing, compared to Kanye West.
He’s a rap superstar. He’s Kim Kardashian’s husband. I can’t say I’m a fan of his politics. Remember when he flat-out said that George W. Bush didn’t like black people?
Kanye West would have little eruptions like that all the time, and it was just fun.
Well, last week he said something unforgivable:
I love the way Candace Owens thinks
We've interviewed Candace Owens before. And Kanye West said he liked how she thought.
The freak-out was total.
But Kanye is built for that, a bit more than Shania Twain. Instead of grovelling, he doubled down, denouncing the "thought police" and tweeting:
[T]here was a time when slavery was the trend and apparently that time is still upon us. But now it's a mentality.
The media don’t know what to do. He’s not behaving himself.
Kanye West is just a pop star. I don’t think I’d rely on him for solid, principled political leadership.
But that’s not the point. The point is, he has not bent the knee.
I’m not saying it’s the beginning of a revolution.
But I think it’s encouragement to others to think for themselves...
