The meeting did highlight how seriously Rump takes issues that his base doesn't really care about.

Rather than invite real policy experts, say on education or criminal justice, Rump brought before the cameras two famous black men who like him.

The result was about what one would expect, a hard-to-parse, bizarre Oval Office moment with very little substance fueled by West's desperate need for attention and Rump's need for open adoration by famous people.

CNN: Trump Exploited 'a Man Who's Clearly Not Okay'.........CNN trying to show a black man for Trump is mentally ill. More Blacks will move to the right...…...but they already are...…...more whining from the left to come from the violent mobs.

Blacks need to be constantly reminded of CNN's referring to Kanye West as a "Token Negro" and other Democrats calling him a "House N-Word."

Kanye West's career is over by touting Trump.
Global artists can only be free to express themselves , are of ambiguity and not biased in a free planet today,in order not to be buried with the neo-radical right wingers.
Artists are all artists regardless race, but if Kanye West takes himself as artist by touting being Black,he has suppressed his career.

Sounds like you are biased against anyone who disagrees with you and label them neo-radical right wingers.

Kanye has been all over the place over the years ... I remember when he said George bush hates black people. A lot of folks agreed with him. A lot of folks claimed Katrina was all his fault ... look at him now .... liberals and Michelle oBama live him. Michelle just said he's her partner in crime.

Back when Kanye said that you would have called anyone who didn't think George Bush was a horrible president the same things you call those who don't think trump is.

Your labels are impotent too. No one gives a eff if you label them a radical right winger. Opinions are like aholes ... realize this and realize what you label people is just your over inflated ego thinking people should care so much what your dumbazz thinks and labels them as.

Labels mean nothing... completely useless. Even more useless and exposes underlying flaws in ones beliefs when they are used as a substitute for intelligent thought.

I thought Kanye was a dummy when he said that about Bush, but I still listened to him.

I think it's humorous that people would say I'm not gonna listen to that person cause of their political beliefs. Why? Do you think all the artists who share your beliefs are nice people or people you'd want to be around? They aren't any different than any other person. I'm sure plenty suck to be around for a whole host of reasons and are not nice and don't have nice personalities. Does that mean I should not listen to their music?

What about the appliance repair man who comes to fix an appliance of mine ... should I care what his political thoughts are? If not, why are musicians political thoughts so relevant to what they do or create?

Doesn't seem relevant to me. Maybe if one is intolerant it does...

"Rump's need for open adoration by famous people."
And THAT is why the left genuflects to Hollywood and their TV stars so hard, huh?
Oh wait... that would be the libs.

So that's why trump was licking celebrity a$$ on Murphy Brown.
Oh wait... that was the dowager.

BTW what did you think of her performance. I loved it.
my wife was trying to tell me, I liked Murphy Brown. It's not going to be THAT bad. It won't be just another left wing propaganda show. Then in walks the skank herself. Getting a little tribute for losing. I couldn't have asked for more.

"Do you think all the artists who share your beliefs are nice people or people you'd want to be around? "
Yes. Actually they do.

"What about the appliance repair man who comes to fix an appliance of mine ... should I care what his political thoughts are?"
The extremists would say "yes". If you find out that he voted GOP you should refuse to give him your business. In fact, assault the man. Run him out of the building. That's how the left wing apostles of "diversity" understand the concept.

"Doesn't seem relevant to me. Maybe if one is intolerant it does..."
Intolerance is the weapon of choice on the left. It has been for decades.

YEP !! you got that right......go Kanye help MAGA !
he is right saying that democrat politicians want to tell people HOW & WHAT to think, and the more you listen to their rhetoric the more their own ability to think for themselves is stunted to the point that they will no nothing to find their own solutions to help themselves do they DEPEND on the government FOR EVERYTHING and are led around like sheep doing ALL THEY ARE TOLD TO DO WITHOUT QUESTIONING ANYTHING. Pretty sad and DOWN RIGHT PATHETIC, using people this way. The less they use their brains the better for their democrat agenda !

Not so fast Sublime.
"Your labels are impotent too. No one gives a eff if you label them a radical right winger."
Don't be hasty now. Some of us really DO care if he calls us neo-radical right wingers, right wing gun nuts, trumptards, racists, homophobes and misogynists. It means a lot to some of us to be called these things. For many of us it is a point of pride that the worst "America" has to offer holds us in low regard. It's especially rewarding when we say nothing untrue or insulting but they just can't stop being abusive and demeaning. It's a litmus test of truth.

Global artists can only be free to express themselves , are of ambiguity and not biased on a new-age free planet today, in order not to be buried with the neo-radical right wingers.

Art is the expression of beauty with no inhibition and cannot be mixed with racism.

Kayne West using the label of BEING BLACK IS NO ARTIST BY saying he adores Trump-THEREFORE WEST IS NO ART OF BEAUTY expression AND HIS CAREER IS OVER.

West by using himself as being black but not an artist is an insult of himself.

Artists are all artists regardless race, but if Kanye West takes himself as artist by touting being Black,he has suppressed his career.
Overall, Most Blacks are correct not to lose their benefits to go Democrats.
