Trump Tries To Distract Media With Random Kanye Meeting?
December 13, 2016

Just when you thought the 2016 election of maniac in chief, Donald Trump, couldn't get any more weird, Trump proves you wrong. Sure, we expected a revolving door of sycophants, suck ups and spineless weasels to come begging for jobs. We also weren't shocked to see a litany of swamp dwelling CEO's, Goldman Sachs and Wall Street CEO's to also come strolling in looking for jobs. But Kanye West? Really, Yeezus?

Even I was stunned to see Twitter start posting images and videos of this utterly random meeting. Mind you, they do have a lot in common. Insanely large egos, inflated sense of self worth, ridiculous wealth, narcissistic to the core, and fashion lines.

So what was this meeting about? Is Kanye interviewing for a job? Secretary of the VA? Yeezus in Chief? Fashion interior designer?

Video proof:

Vox nailed it, though. This is all a MASSIVE distraction from the *real* news...like him cancelling his press conference to discuss his incredible business conflicts, the whole 'Russia Hacking" situation and this bombshell from Newsweek that just dropped today from Kurt Eichenwald.

Trump, master of deception, is losing his charm. Don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain. Focus on the real stories: Russia, Putin, Hacking, Divesting (or the lack thereof), Turkey, etc.

Can you help us out?
