Kanye West spent New Year’s Day tweeting about MAGA crap & Drake

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Weirdly, I gave myself the same Christmas gift when it came to Donald Trump and Kanye West: I stopped paying attention to them for about a solid week. It’s back to the gossip grindstone though, so I checked in with both delusional megalomaniacs and nothing has really changed:

He’s like a child: “One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black.” Yes, people are like “black folks should not dress up in Klan robes and burn down black churches” and Kanye is like “THAT’S WHAT I’M GOING TO DO NOW, YOU CAN’T TELL ME I CAN’T DO THAT.” I have a contrarian nature too, but this is something else.

In addition to tweeting about Trump, Kanye also tweeted at/about Drake. It really, really sounds like that Drake-Kim Kardashian conspiracy theory is true, you guys. Kanye was/is mad about Drake following Kim on Instagram, and Ye spent a lot of New Year’s Day tweeting-and-deleting some sh-t about Drake:

Seemingly out of the blue, West returned to the subject of their ongoing feud.

“I’ve never mentioned or touched on anything related to family when it came to Drake,” he wrote in a since-deleted Tweet, including a devil emoji after the Canadian rapper’s name. “He followed my wife on Instagram he mentioned Pusha’s fiance [sic] in a song.”

“Who’s [sic] bright idea was it to tell Drake to follow my wife on Instagram?” he continued, adding “this person is not Drskes [sic] friend.”

Over the weekend, West also tweeted and deleted several heated messages about Drake, criticizing him for following his wife on Instagram in September, as tensions between the two rappers were at an all-time high. “He dodged me for months when I extended olive branches to talk and then called to threaten me,” West continued in another deleted message on Monday, echoing a claim he made earlier this month, when he tweeted over 125 times about the “In My Feelings” rapper, 32. Drake no longer follows Kardashian on the social media platform.

[From People]

The comparison between Kanye and Trump is dead-on. Both engage in their dumbest and most petty squabbles on Twitter, and both men try to start sh-t with people who have walked away in disgust months or years earlier.

Also: Drake hosted a NYE party at Delilah in LA, and Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott all attended the bash. So… Kanye’s sisters-in-law don’t give a sh-t about Kanye’s beef with Drake.

    And they have another baby on the way via surrogate (US Weekly reported it first but I didn’t believe until PEOPLE confirmed) https://people.com/parents/kim-kardashian-kanye-west-expecting-fourth-child/

    Can’t wait for the fourth ridiculous name they come up with

  2. BigGirl says:


  3. BigGirl says:

    Why is it a big deal that Drake followed KK?

    • Veronica S. says:

      The rumor is that Kim K cheated with Drake. Even if it’s not true, Kanye certainly seemed bothered by it, so he views following her as an aggressive move that feeds into his suspicion.

  4. BlueSky says:

    🎶someone needs attention🎶

    I thought we left him in 2018. I’ve said this over and over, you wanna support this Orange Mussolini, have at it.We don’t have to listen to you. In another tweet he said he was drug free and I took that as he is off his medication???

    I know he believes all this but I also think this is attention seeking behavior too. I think he gets off on people’s reaction. For me he was cancelled a long time ago.

    • otaku fairy says:

      Agreed. He’s too delusional and egotistical to care how damaging his message is, as long as it gets him attention and makes him feel like an Edgy Free Thinker. The fact that he could say something as gross as what he said in that third tweet especially says it all.

    • minx says:

      Kanye and Kim are both idiots. I hope we hear less of them in the new year.

  5. Ader says:

    It’s true: Drake is corny as a cob. But Kanye is further gone than MC Grindah!

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    He literally is a child. What they really mean is their 5th child is on the way.

  7. Miles says:

    If I’m not mistaken, Drake has been friends with the Kardashians/Jenners for a long time. I think even before Kanye came into the picture. I can’t see the family cutting off a long time family friend because of Kanye and his ego.

    As for Kanye himself, can we as a society just collectively decide to ignore him. All the way. Pay him no mind.

  8. LORENA says:

    The fact that Kendall, Kylie and Travis Scott still went to Drakes party says a lot about how they feel about his made up problems. Would they really party with him if Drake actually threatened their family?

    • molly says:

      I think they all shake their head at Kanye (“oh, Kanye”) in exasperation and just go about their lives. It’s a shame those kids are saddled with an unmedicated, egomaniac though. They can’t just go about their lives and ignore him.

      • LORENA says:

        I wonder if Kim just wanted to make sure she had a 4th kid before divorcing him

      • molly says:

        Possibly. Those three all had baby girls around the same time, so I thought that satisfied her “how cute would it be to create the next generation of Kardashian BFF sisters!”
        She’s dug her heels in with Kanye and put up with his public nonsense for so long, that I assumed she was in it for the long haul. Perhaps 2019 is the year she finally cuts him loose.

  9. Nobody says:

    Maybe someone paid kanye to support trump.
    I think i had read about kanye massive debt last year.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      I agree. He’s being paid per tweet, most likely. The visits to the White House probably also paid performances.

  10. Tiffany says:

    By big takeaway from this, there is a woman out there that agreed to marry Pusha T?

    Oh honey……

  11. ElleBee says:

    Kanye is a “Pick Me” but instead of him being “not like other girls” he’s “not like other blacks”

    I agree that African Americans don’t have to be Democrats BUT that is not what this is about. Trump is a steaming pile of radio-active garbage that deserves a damp, cold jail cell. His political party is irrelevant.

    • jwoolman says:

      So Kanye thinks 90% of black Americans being Democrats means someone is controlling them? He can’t think of any other reason?!?

  12. Jessica says:

    Kobe and Vanessa also expecting a fourth. Big families making a ‘comeback’?

    • Veronica S. says:

      Only among the rich who can afford it or those whose cultural leanings tend toward multiple children. American birth rates actually hit a three decade low point in 2018. Kind of inevitable result of stagnating wages and a lack of family resources in a society.

  13. Beth says:

    Someone needs to give him a rattle and take away his phone. Do people who make ridiculous tweets all day like Kanye and Trump, realize how embarrassing and foolish they look? Get a life, Kanye

  14. RBC says:

    So what is the issue with Kanye? When he had a breakdown a few years ago it was reported he had bi polar problems. Then he said he was addicted to opioids.
    Or is he just a narassictic/ass#%le?
    He just seems all over the place and if I was a family member would be very concerned

    • CairinaCat says:

      He is a bipolar narcissist who doesn’t consistently take his meds.
      And he is ALSO a huge asshole

      Just because you are mentally I’ll doesn’t mean you’re a ignorant asshole jerk.

      But it does in Kanye’s case

  15. TheOriginalMia says:

    I hope Drake and Kim did hook up. It’s Kim who has to respect her marriage vows and we know she hasn’t in the past with Kanye, so…*Kanye shrug* And it’s obvious the other sisters and Kris don’t care one way or the other because they are still in touch with Drake. Bet that hurts.

    I’m not going to waste too much time on Kanye and Drumpf. I knew nothing had changed with him. He still thinks he’s provocative, when he looks and talks like a fool.

  16. Yes Doubtful says:

    Drake must have something juicy on Kanye. Why else would Kanye be BEGGING for Drake to talk to him and make amends? It’s sad to see him falling apart like this and his wife does nothing but enable him.

    • HelloSunshine says:

      Or Kanye thinks Drake has something on him because he’s paranoid and not taking his medication. My dad is like this and it’s always the world against him and usually there’s one or two people leading the rally “against” my dad. The reality is it’s just paranoia driven by the lack of care put towards their mental health. It’s awful to watch/be apart of and I’m kind of horrified hearing that they’re having another baby. I’m guessing neither are doing much of the care for the kids since Kim is constantly complaining how hard it is to have the kids (and leaving it to nannies) and Kanye and I imagine (hope) she’s sheltering the kids from the worst of his manias.

  17. Hummingbird says:

    I know Kanye is mentally ill but what he’s going to Drake is harassment and sorry to offend but I don’t believe being mentally ill gives anyone the right to abuse and/or harassed anyone else. He’s litterally stalking Drake and nobody seems to see anything wrong with this 🤨
    At the end of the day Kanye is a class A attention whore and that’s why he’s twitting about Drake and DT.

    • CairinaCat says:

      You’re not offending.
      Being mentally Ill absolutely does NOT give you the right to harm, harrass or act like an abusive jerk to anyone.

      Behaving that way is a choice and an indulgence.
      I and 100% of my large extended family have bipolar and other affect disorders severely.
      Lots of friends and people I see professionally also have affect disorders.
      Only 2 are self indulgent assholes, out of about 150 people. Being an ass while mentally ill is not the norm.
      The normal thing to do is to get treatment, therapy, behavior mod, cognitive behavioral therapy, meds, support.
      That’s the Norma mature thing to do.
      Is everyone awesome all the time? No. But the difference is that mature people strive to get better and overcome things.

      Some things bipolar people experiencing maina do is overspend, take off in the car randomly because you can’t stay in one place

      What does a mature person moving into a mania phase do? Hands over the cards, checkbook, have someone change the PayPal, eBay , ect passwords, and take the car keys. And the phone if that’s a problem. AND you call your DOCTORS.
      You take measures to stop yourself from being a dumbass.
      THIS is what a mature adult with mental illness does. Especially if you have children.

      • Jane says:

        I hope you don’t mind me replying to say how much I needed to hear this. Cutting a long story short I have a sibling that is progressively getting worse with some undiagnosed mental health issues. At 46 he’s now living in a room in his parents’ house where they seem to feel that being super nice and pandering to him will make it all better.
        From what we can glean from chats with him (when he leaves the room) he’s definitely having conspiracy theories and communicating (perhaps telepathically) with others as well as a wide range of other issues. When I stay there too on and off he’s extremely passively aggressive with me in particular, as in the past it’s me that’s brought matters to a head. He’s steadily declined over the last decade.
        Anyways my folks are adamant no one challenges him (in case he runs away ends up homeless). It’s heightened by the fact that he travels, and often times like this last year he vanishes for months on end, without contacting family. The last time he went mum was seriously ill and he tried calling once on Xmas day (months after he left), didn’t get through and that was it. I also travel and the onus is often times that my family seem to think I’ll be able to go searching for him in Asia. I see ‘missing’ posters all the time in Asia and it breaks my heart that my family think I’d be able to track him down/search for him if he just disappears.
        I think what I wanted to say, that as well as it being heart breaking seeing this happen, no one is listening to me (or other family members) saying he needs telling. My brother is so defensive if you even tell him to put his tea bag in the recycle bin he can flare up at you. I think he knows what people want to say but my parents are too scared to face accepting it, let alone dealing with it.
        It doesn’t help that he was a trained psychiatric nurse and as well as it being a while before he’s truly a danger to others, I feel he knows exactly what to say/do if anyone did try to assess him.
        In short I’ve decided these last few weeks of feeling intimidated/bullied and ignored that I have to move away from him emotionally, as I’ve ended up being seen as the ‘trouble maker’ in the house. I tried pulling him up when he talked aggressively to my folks and they just kind of weakly took it, and suggested it was my actions that made him so mad.
        I’ve obviously felt guilty about deciding to pull away but it’s become a very damaging relationship for me, and no one is helping him. I’ve been in several abusive relationships in the past and interactions with him were beginning to trigger me again. My parents wouldn’t even acknowledge where I’d say he was being rude. They excuse his horrible moods because he’s struggling, and so are just treading on egg shells around him.
        Your post has helped me a lot. Thank you. Last time he went away travelling he ended up in a detention centre in Thailand for a month, I dread to think what it could be next time. Your post has made me feel that we all have to put effort into ourselves. He’s not so far gone that when my parents got him a Nintendo switch at Xmas (as it’s the first thing he’s seemed animated about – according to them) no one seemed to notice he was capable of polite conversation and interaction then… when it suited him. It’s been a really sad thing, but I hope I’m right stepping away from it all for now.

        Sorry for the essay it just poured out.

      • Ducky la Rue says:

        @Jane – so sorry to hear about your struggles with your brother. If you need to emotionally distance yourself, then do it, and don’t feel bad about it or apologize for it – it sounds like you have more than done your share, and it’s at the point that you have to look after your mental health and well-being too. ~hugs to you~

      • Lady D says:

        Jane, you have to take care of yourself. I wish you all the luck in the world extracting yourself from family life. I’ve learned the hard way, as have most, how fleeting life can be. You deserve some happiness and time is ticking. If you can’t help the situation, or change the family dynamic, it may be time you step away for your sanity’s sake. I hope you can find some peace.

  18. Raven says:

    If they are expecting a fourth child, what about Kim going to People magazine complaining about how tough it is dealing with Kanye and 3 kids. So now that her husband is even more unstable she wants to add a fourth child into the mix.

    Which says even more that Kim only sees her children like accessories.

    • me says:

      That’s ok she’ll just hire more nannies to do the actual work, while Kim will of course take the credit.

    • Renee says:

      Thank you Raven. I said something similar upthread. Kim continues to bring kids into this manic fool’s chaos.

    • Treelover says:

      Anyone who believes Kim is a hands on mom is as delusional as a Dump supporter.

      I don’t blame Kanye for bringing more kids into this mess because he is not mentally capable of making that decision, this is all on Kim. It not a situation were Kim got pregnant by accident. Kanye is to blame for choosing his music over being a stable father for his kids and their well-being.

      I feel bad for the kids because they have two selfish parents who care more about their own needs and media attention then there will being. Not to mention they have no one in their life that genuinely cares about doing what’s right for them and their well-being. Their grandmother, ants and uncle are all narcissistic people who have no problem exploiting them to the fullest extent for media attention.

      • minx says:

        Yes to all of this. Kim and Kanye barely acknowledge each other in pictures, I’m sure they spend zilch time together. I hope the children are taken care of by somebody.

  19. Renee says:

    I watched “The Shop” on HBO over the weekend and Drake was a guest. (It’s a talk show format in a barbershop hosted by LeBron James). Drake explained the Kanye fiasco that happened and it’s clear that Kanye manipulated him and then stabbed him in the back.
    I believe Kanye is exactly like Trump, no loyalty and completely unhinged.

  20. Mar says:

    Couldn’t Kim just block Drake on IG to avoid all of this drama?

    • Raven says:

      Yes she could have before Kanye found out or any of this went public. She chose not to because she like the attention that this is causing.

      • Pandy says:

        Of course she’s LOVING it … paints her as an irresistible Venus or something lolllll. And she’s probably hoping Drake would be her jump off when she dumps Kanye.

      • me says:

        @ Pandy

        Yeah remember when Kim insinuated Tyson Beckford was gay because he said that Kim doesn’t do it for him and he’s not into her. God forbid every Black man not want her.

  21. Mel says:

    Hmmm, hubby is bipolar and off his meds, lets bring MORE children into our mess, that should fix it, said no rational person ever.

    • B n A fan says:

      I know that mental illness can be inherited. If Kanye is the donor for all the babies, it’s possible one or more of the kids may possibly inherits his mental illness. I hope they are taking that into account. I’m not a fan of KK or KW, I have enough on my plate when Don the Con running the country into the ground with his grandiose blabbering.

      • CairinaCat says:

        Bipolar and affect disorders in general are verrryyyyy hereditary.
        90% of my family on both sides going back generations are bipolar and also other various affect things.
        I unfortunately have passed it to my two sons :( The only upside is we were watching for it so we caught it earlier than most. (in boys it usually hits at puberty around 12-14) My youngest hit puberty early and started exhibiting bipolar/anxiety/depression around 9

        The more kids they have, if they are his, ups the odds big time that at least one of them will be bipolar

  22. Harryg says:

    I don’t really want to hear about him or his wife. I wish they retired on a remote island, with all of her family, with no internet.

  23. Patty says:

    Those poor babies. That’s really I got. As far as I’m concerned, both Kanye and Kim are garbage to be bringing another baby into the mess that is their lives.

  24. Dttimes2 says:

    Well i guess we know why Kourtney is hanging around Scott again…..needs to get knocked up so Kim doesn’t get all the headlines

    • Swack says:

      Along with both Khloe and Kylie saying they would like to have more babies by Tristan and Travis. We may have 4 being born this year.

  25. SM says:

    I actualy laughed out loud wthile reading Kanye’s rants. So stupid and yet so proud of it. He could teach all of us who try to educate ourselves and think that we are still have a long way to go until we come out all confident about how to solve the problems of humanity. It just shows that any of us, investing any time in educating ourselves about the world need to speak louder and with much more confidence.
