'My Eyes Are Now Wide Open': Kanye West Says He Was 'Used' and Vows He's Done With Politics Two weeks after a controversial meeting at the White House with President Trump, rapper Kanye West said that he is done with politics. In a series of tweets posted Tuesday afternoon, West claimed his "eyes are now wide open" and that he was being "used" to spread messages he does not believe in.

He's a little slow on the uptake. Found out supporting the Orange Racist cost him in the wallet.

He still sucks though.

Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out ye.

I head his most recent hit "song" on the radio the other day.

How anybody finds that garbage worth their time is beyond me. Then again, we're also in the era of Cardi B so...

His managers must have convinced him that his music career was being destroyed by his association with Donald Trump. His audience generally hates Trump.

Good for the private. He hasn't been posting as much, I wonder when the "wokeness" will become evident here.

To Liberals, woke just means someone is a blind follower of Liberal beliefs. Unfortunately, it doesn't actually do anything to stop the hate that both sides spread.

Ermmmm noooo... woke means not talking like an amphetamine addled narcissist. Now I don't know what medicated spectrum Kayne really wants to claim... blame it on the medication seems a popular theme amongst the Trumpbots.... buuuuuuuttttt you are free to interpret their blatherings anyway you feel. We on the left will just continue to show them over and over again.... to make our point... cause we are sinister like that.

You can just pull up his music from the Fat Kanye era. It wasn't bad. It wasn't his best work, but it wasn't terrible either.

I wonder how he's "been used"? Did someone approach him, slap a MAGA hat on him and ask him to pal it up with Pres.Trump?

A who's who of hip-hop pal'd around with Trump and were stoked to compare themselves to him in lyrics. He's in over 300 songs. Then he got elected, and now you have to hate him or your sales suffer.

It's hilarious.

Snoop Dogg got so fired up on hating Trump he was cheering on the loss of the wrong white person (I get it, they all look alike). It wasn't Colby Covington, the guy who trolls hard as pro-Trump to sell UFC ppvs.

Nothing like a fox news watcher explaining the inner workings of a liberal mind.

You get your impression of liberals from a network created to lie to you.

Kamala Harris--The Woken One--is so woke, it's no joke.

""We have to stay woke," Harris told the audience of activists. "Everybody needs to be woke. You can talk about if you're the wokest or woker, but just stay more woke than less woke. We all have to know our voice matters."

Kanye came out and spoke out against black people being forced to be Democrats, and he was silenced by other black people, who are Democrats.

Nobody is forced into a political party.

There is no Dem Plantation. Your insinuation suggesting otherwise is racist.

An uncle tom is a black person who CONTRIBUTES to the oppression of black people for their own benefit. Legitimizing trump qualifies as being an uncle tom.

Not supporting democrats does not make one an uncle tom, but actively supporting republicans does.

TMZ UPDATE:

4:15 PM PT -- Kanye contacted us to make it clear he did not mention Donald Trump in his tweets, and he's getting out of politics altogether.
As for being "used" ... he says he was specifically referencing Blexit, and that's it.

In her cross-examination of Kavanaugh, she insinuated that she had some smoking gun. She didn't produce it, which shows her to be the cynical, calculating politician she is. She's Hillary Clinton with a tan.

No smoking gun would have dissuaded the GOP from appointing Kavanaugh.

This is the party whose leader boasted he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and not lose any voters.

You have nothing worth having Null. Repubicl°wn pigs such as yourself have put into office yet another disgrace who will leave office disgraced. In 2020 I bet the clowns will hold their convention and the two most recent presidents will be no-shows because they ( count them 2) would be "too much of a distraction". First Nixon... then Bush2 and now Trump.

We do nothing but show your favorite incompetent's ---- ups over and over again... your team gets defensive... starts acting stupid outside the double wides ... then he starts bawling about how unfair it is, at which point he looks weak on the world stage... because he is... it works like magic.

You go for it every time too... I'm guessing you can't resist your own stupid. Every stupid thing he does... shown over and over and over and over and over and over... Trumplethinskin is an infinite well of stupid... as are you by association. Go ahead rebut with a display of loyalty... stupid... we will show it over and over and over and over.... Just as we did with Bushhole2
