Is Kanye off the Trump train?

I can’t tell if he’s cutting ties just to Candace Owens, which would be well advised, or hopping off the MAGA Express altogether.

Either way, between this and the Jacob Wohl fiasco, it’s a red-letter day for dodgy young Trump barnacles.

Yesterday came the news that West, who’s friendly with Owens and her Turning Point pal Charlie Kirk, helped design merchandise for her “Blexit” clothing line. (“Blexit” meaning “Black Exit” from the Democratic Party.) “Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” said Owens at an event. But was that true? She clarified later on Twitter: Kanye introduced her to the designer.

Weird how a mega-famous celebrity’s alleged role in the Blexit project was exaggerated just as items were about to go on sale. Kanye seems to have found it more than weird:

His eyes have been opened, he’s been used to spread messages he doesn’t believe in. Does that refer just to Blexit and Owens or does it mean his entire association with TrumpWorld? Before you answer, note these tweets as well:

Gun control and compassion for refugees does … not sound very MAGA-y.

Did Mrs. West, perchance, lay down the law?

Sounds like a spouse-driven “Yexit” from the entire Trump carnival, which would be surprising: I thought Kim K was Trump-friendly, if maybe not as friendly as her better half. Ah well. This made me chuckle:

The strange thing about “Blexit” being the final straw for Kanye is that he’s expressed similar sentiments himself. Remember that track he released earlier this year about his political travels and chumminess with Trump? Quote: “See that’s the problem with this damn nation. All blacks gotta be Democrats. Man, we ain’t made it off the plantation.” I don’t know if it’s the message of “Blexit” that’s bothering him so much as Owens’s apparent attempt to monetize her association with him.

Exit question: It’s all set up for Trump vs. Kanye in 2020 now, isn’t it?
