As you’ve probably heard, Kanye West has been making quite a splash on Twitter this week.

At first, fans were excited to see the outspoken rapper tweeting again after a lengthy hiatus.

Now, many of them probably wish he would take another long break from social media.

Classic Kimye

Kanye’s return to Twitter was like watching someone show up to a party with a case of booze to the delight of all the revelers … and then proceeding to drink the whole by himself and pass out under the coffee table.

The excitement of those early hours when the rapper first started posting his stream-of-consciousness observations about the world around him quickly gave way to concern for Kanye’s mental state.

While there have been some legitimate reasons to question West’s stability – such as the revelation that he recently battled an opioid addiction – much of what we’ve seen over the past few days has been nothing more than Kanye being Kanye.

Of course, the tweets that have received the most attention have had to do with West’s love of Donald Trump, but his support for the president really shouldn’t come as a surprise.

For one thing, Kanye famously visited Trump in Manhattan during the president’s hectic transition to the White House.

But more importantly – is anyone who’s familiar with the man’s personality actually shocked that Kanye is drawn to a guy who plastered his name all over New York City in giant gold letters?

That’s basically the most Kanye action ever carried out by someone not named Kanye. 

To be fair, some people might be taken aback by the extent of ‘Ye’s love (his word, not ours) of Trump.

As you can see, Kanye really stirred the pot by spending much of today doubling and tripling down on his esteem for 45:

"You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone," West tweeted, before acknowledging that he "doesn’t agree with" everything the president does.

Yeezy further confused the issue by revealing that he also has deep affection for Hillary Clinton.

"If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary. I love Hillary too," he wrote.

Among those who seem a bit perplexed by Kanye’s latest tweet-storm is none other than the rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian:

Kim apparently intervened today in order to ensure that her husband was being as clear as possible with both his longtime fans and the MAGA folk who just decided today that "Flashing Lights" is an all-time banger.

"My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself," West tweeted today.

Naturally, this led to another round of Kim-Kanye divorce rumors, but it seems that Mrs. Kardashian-West is actually taking her husband’s political eccentricities in stride.

Earlier this afternoon, in response to jokes about his imprisonment in "the sunken place" – a reference to Jordan Peele’s Get Out – Kanye tweeted a photo of his lavish home, along with a caption reading:

"Do this look like the sunken place."

The photo was retweeted by Kim, who added her own caption:

"Ummm babe. We had a rule to not show our home on social media! Soooo can we now allow KUWTK filming in the home?"

Kim was quick to clap back at critics who suggested her remark was anything more than a joke.

There’s so much insanity taking place on Ye’s page these days that it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that he also promised to turn the Grammys into the "Yammys" and claimed that he’s made more money from selling sneakers than the most successful footwear peddler of them all.

"I am currently the single highest paid person in footwear. That means I make more money on shoes than Michael Jordan," he tweeted.

Whatever you say, ‘Ye.

Just make sure to take some time to record a little new music soon, and if you want to load up with high-pitched soul samples, a la The College Dropout, that would be just super with us.
