“Why wouldn’t I agree to meet you?” Donald Trump said of his dinner with Kanye West.
Maybe because Ye spewed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and said he was going to go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE”?
Maybe because he approached Adidas officials with pornography and intimate photos of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian?
Or, more importantly, if Trump really cares about the people of Israel, his own daughter and son-in-law, the question should be “why should I?” rather than “why shouldn’t I?”
But no. You said some nice things about him on TV — the #1 thing Trump looks for in a dinner companion — so none of the other facts mattered.
Trump was also impressed with Nick Fuentes, as he praised the former president at the dinner. That Fuentes is a white nationalist Holocaust denier — well, that was never mentioned, Trump says. Not “I denounce what he represents”. It’s “Kanye brought a guest I didn’t know”.
After driving away every able aide through paranoia or his bitter fixation on losing the 2020 election, this is now the company Trump keeps. The Groypers, the Proud Boys – Trump won’t report any of them. They love it, so how bad can they be? And so – again – Trump puts his own ego before common sense, before tolerance, before judgment, before country.
