Political tension in the states is as high as it ever has been. After a long week of testimony concerning the confirmation of a new supreme court justice, America has once again become polarized on both sides of the political spectrum. One of the most surprising voices championing the current administration it that of Kanye West.
When the legendary producer and rapper joined Twitter again earlier this year, he immediately launched into championing a pro-Trump agenda. This has led a lot of people scratching their heads. Despite harsh criticism from both fans and peers, Kanye has not backed down.
Kanye West On SNL
Kanye West appeared on SNL this weekend as the musical guest. While Ye performed with a MAGA hat on, his most intense political statement occurred after the cameras stopped rolling. Once the scene cut after his song performance Kanye reportedly went on a pro-Trump tirade that many said was nonsensical.
Now Kanye has doubled down on confusion by tweeting out a message calling for the 13th amendment to be abolished. If you are no aware, the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the United States. Even when the context is taken into consideration, this one is a bit insane. It seems Kanye's core message is that people of color no longer need the protection of the amendment, therefore it should be done away with for good.
Uhhh, needless to say just about nobody agreed with Kanye, even those on the extreme conservative ends of the political spectrum…check out the tweet below.
this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create Jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love pic.twitter.com/a15WqI8zgu
