    LMAO I love people who think political parties of 150 years ago are exactly that same in the 21st century. We no longer have Whigs, federalists, democratic republicans…. politics GASP evolves. Hell the republicans of today aren’t even the republicans of the Reagan era. Newt Gingrich changed the republican party into what it is today back in 1994. Terrifying.

    The south used to be democratic, until the democrats started flipping their positions on issues like racism, civil liberties, etc… It’s why the south turned conservative in the 60s, they didn’t want black people to have rights, they didn’t want them to have the right to vote, to think they were equals.

    Edit: I didn’t read the text exchange between them, so I’m repeating. But still…THIS should be taught in schools and on the effin’ news, republicans cling to hard on that. Also they should bring back civics to schools, we’re churning out stupid. And if you don’t know, civics = the study of the theoretical, political and practical aspects of citizenship, as well as its rights and duties; the duties of citizens to each other as members of a political body and to the government.

    You sound like the stupid one, why don’t you shut up? Why don’t you get off the democratic plantation?

  • Angelette Holtrust

    He has done more for his career in the last 5 days then he could ever do. Just because you libbys cry and whine the loudest, doesn’t make you the majority

  • Gina

    Kanye needs to thank God for John Legend.

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    Not a “libby” or whatever you’re spouting off about. Just hate Kanye.

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    Someone likes Trump and is a new fan of Kanye…

  • Angelette Holtrust

    Yes I support our President, and no I am not a fan of Kanye……I just believe in free speech for everyone, not just the left

  • DEADP00L

    Kanye just proved he is an illiterate.

  • Phil the Donahue

    nOpe. When a song of theirs comes out it usually hits at #1 on Tidal. His is somewhere in the 10′s. And his music now sucks His talent has slowly been tanking. And, I’m all for free speech but when the free speech is an actual lie then you are just a retard for reading it.

  • Phil the Donahue

    what a complete and utter moron. The Republicans and Democrats switched sides you idiot. The premise of both parties slowly shifted so that NOW the republicans don’t believe in anything but being piss ants, whiney little piss ants who can’t handle Michelle Wolf. Cry babies who always project. And no, I’ not a democrat so KMA. And I believe in free speech as long as it’s not an utter lie. When it’s a lie and you believe it then you are an actual slow adult. Are you saying you are a slow adult?

    Do yourself a favor and listen to his music. LOL. he is not now nor he ever been a “republican, He simply likes trump’s style of crazy and unapologetic verbal vomit of whatever pops into his head. Trump is toxic for any brand and it won’t belong before Kim puts an end to it because Kardashians don’t play when it comes to their money and what they have built.

  • cutitout

    The argument uneducated people are making when they pull nonsense out of their azzes and get called on it when they say it in public.

  • cutitout

    Stupid helped republicans win an election so don’t count on them to make the education system any better. they don’t want too many people going to college because they in turn will no work for nothing and the capitalist system will fall. they need mindless dummies, too simple to grasp complex ideas and see through their smoke-in-mirrors.

  • Wendy

    I literally thought it was common knowledge that the parties switched, I guess not.

  • jh7058622
