Donald Trump has been desperate to get any A-list celebs at his inauguration, but there’s one star that he wants to stay far away from Friday’s ceremony — Kanye West!
Earlier this week, a spokesperson for the President-elect’s inauguration committee told CNN the rapper was NOT invited to perform at the inauguration because his music just wasn’t “traditionally American” enough.
We can’t help but feel like there’s some subtle racial subtext in that phrase… hmm, if only we could parse it out…
Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee Tom Barrack told CNN’s Erin Burnett that the political ceremony wasn’t a “fitting” venue for Yeezy, explaining:
“He’s been great, he considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue.”
Well, that’s gotta hurt. Especially when you consider Trump met with Kanye last month at Trump Towers and said he was a “great role model” when it comes to business.
But we guess the Famous rapper and bronzed businessman are just New York friends and not D.C. friends…
Sure, he may not be “typically American” enough for your typical president, but we think Yeezy’s yuge ego and explicitly misogynistic lyrics are the perfect fit for the p*ssy-grabbing POTUS-to-be.
Is this the end of Trump’s friendship with Kanye!? Watch the icy interview (below)!
