Kanye West’s personal problems have landed him and his political activism in the headlines, reminding us of his visit to the White House in 2018 to met President Trump.
I remain appalled that even commentators critical of West’s meeting with Trump in the Oval Office neglect noting the most salient fact of that meeting: West’s unabashed use of the words “mother———“ and “bull—-t.” He got a big hug from Trump after saying them, and a lot of other gibberish, too.
I don’t consider myself a prude (who does), but I find it deeply offensive that a President of the United States would welcome a foul-mouthed person into the White House and give him full approval to speak filthy language, using words that no newspaper, or any media would say or publish on their pages or broadcasts.
That incident, alone, gives us deep insight into the heart and soul of Donald Trump—and the Republicans who worship him like Germans worshiped Adolf Hitler. What a putrid mess lies beneath the surface of these neo-fascist Republicans.
(Remember the “good” people Trump saw marching through the streets of Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us”?)
