This has been an, um, interesting album rollout for Kanye
Kanye West has tweeted out a picture wearing a (signed) "Make America Great Again" hat.
In the photo, he is sitting with Lucian Grainge, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Music Group, and Lyor Cohen, the Global Head of Music at YouTube.
Before that, he clarified his stance on President Donald Trump, tweeting that "the mob can't make me not love him" and that they are "both dragon energy" (whatever that means).

President Trump appreciated the cosign from Kanye, quote retweeting one of his tweets:
\u201cThank you Kanye, very cool! https://t.co/vRIC87M21X\u201d— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1524684787
Kanye West's wife, Kim Kardashian, went to Twitter and tried to explain her husband's views:
\u201cTo the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair\u201d— Kim Kardashian (@Kim Kardashian) 1524683590
\u201cYesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye\u2019s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision. So I\u2019m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening\u201d— Kim Kardashian (@Kim Kardashian) 1524683638
\u201cHe\u2019s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That\u2019s just not fair. He\u2019s actually out of the sunken place when he\u2019s being himself which is very expressive\u201d— Kim Kardashian (@Kim Kardashian) 1524683797
\u201cNow when he spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions,even if really different from mine\nHe never said he agrees with his politics\u201d— Kim Kardashian (@Kim Kardashian) 1524684622
\u201cKanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that\u2019s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren\u2019t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time\u201d— Kim Kardashian (@Kim Kardashian) 1524684647
