If you thought Kanye West was lost in Trump love before, don’t check his Twitter when he finds out the commander-in-chief gave him a shout out during the first Cabinet meeting of the year. Over the extended holiday weekend, Kanye went against his statement of not talking politics, said “Trump all day,” then revealed he can’t wait to put on his MAGA hat when he performs. Somebody must have alerted Donald Trump because he showed love back.
CNBC report Q Mui detailed that Trump gave a compliment to Kanye and called him “smart, a good guy.” Deep sigh, here they go.
Aaaaand @kanyewest gets a shoutout in this hourlong POTUS cabinet meeting. Trump calls him smart, a good guy. Welcome to 2019!

Kanye reveals the Trump hat lets him know “people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black.” 2019 already looks to be off to an insane start already.
