As you may know already, Kanye West has finally parted ways with politics and is determined to just focus on his art. But why the sudden change after all of his controversial stances?
A source shared with HollywoodLife that the rapper realized he had been played by both Trump supporter Candace Owens and the president himself and that was really ‘unsettling’ for him.
As a result, he is no longer a MAGA supporter and here’s why!
After wearing the Make America Great Again hat for weeks and after gushing over Trump every chance he got, Ye suddenly had a revelation.
Kim Kardashian’s husband took to Twitter to state that he’s being ‘used to spread messages I don’t believe in.’
Now, a source tells the outlet how exactly the rapper reached that conclusion.
‘The violence of the past week was really jarring for Kanye. It got Kanye thinking, and the conclusion he came to was really unsettling and disturbing to him.’
Here, the insider is referring to the 12 pipe bombs sent to well-known democrat names as well as the tragic shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue.
Ye loved what Trump stands for and argued that his support was for the ‘big picture.’
‘Kanye loved Trump’s anti-establishment and that he is not your run-of-the-mill politician. Trump has no filter and he thinks outside the box. Because Trump was a reality star, Kanye saw him as sort of a ‘pop culture’ president. The whole thing appealed to Kanye’s creative sensibilities.’
That was until he realized all of that was not nearly enough to make a good leader.
‘Kanye’s realized there is a very high price to pay for the rhetoric that has being spoken by the president he was endorsing, and it has dawned on him that he cannot just pick and choose parts of Trump’s agenda that he likes; it is all or nothing.’
