Paging Black Lives Matter! Kanye Met Trump to Discuss Chicago Violence...
Sadly, Kanye's visit to Trump Tower was not because he and Trump are about to drop the hottest mixtape of 2016. "Ebony and Ivory feat. Charlamane tha God and Tomi Lehran" would have been straight fire.
No, the rapper met with the President-elect...to talk about violence in Chicago?
Kanye West had a long-term plan when he asked to meet with Donald Trump. Talk about life during the first meeting, and death on the streets during the next one.
Sources close to the rapper tell us Kanye has been thinking a lot about the violence in Chicago, and wants to use his name to make a difference. The rapper's had a good relationship with Trump. He's decided to use it to help promote peace on the streets in Chi-town.
We talk about Chicago a lot here (see Ferguson Effect? Chicago Police Officer Didn’t Defend Herself ‘For fear of backlash…’ and New Data Directly Correlates #BlackLivesMatter To Rise in Chicago Homicide). The city is an example of how black lives only seem to matter if leftists can use them as a weapon. When the loss of life is caused by decades of failed leftist policies? Hey, look at that obvious distraction...
And TMZ is right (mark it in your calendar, celebrate its anniversary next year). If you're serious about (solve for x) as a issue, the only way to effectively do anything about it is to open dialogue with people who may disagree. Maybe Kanye and Trump will show us the way. Doubtful, sure, but it's not yet time to burn down the castle.
You know who isn't showing us the way? SJW trolls who got their panties in a twist when Trump had the juevos to meet with Kanye while a civil war raged in Syria... for the past five years, but you're not supposed to talk about HOW LONG the war has been going on. There are pictures now. Allepo was burning... at least because the photographers were taking and posting their photos. So how dare two people in America meet while the media suddenly decided to cover the Syrian Civil War... five years after it started. Oh yes, we wrote about the blatant hypocrisy: Liberals Rage as Media Covers Trump, Kanye Instead of Syrian War.
Of course the real reason this little meet greet is important? A Republican president met with a celebrity. That's never okay. It's totes fine when a Democrat president meets with a celebrity, regardless of world events. But a Republican is never supposed to do it. Especially a white president. After 8 years of a black president who supposedly fixed all problems everywhere. For shame.
Anyway, have a mug. What you fill it with is up to you. Remember, it's still morning, though. But no judgement.
