CNN anchor: Is it ‘time to start worrying about Kanye?’

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota says Kanye West’s behavior had become increasingly alarming, asking her audience on “New Day” Monday whether it might be time for Americans to start worrying about the rapper after his performance on “Saturday Night Live.”

“I just am wondering if it’s time to start worrying about Kanye because he does go on, sometimes, nonsensical rants,” she said. “He has taken a break for some stress related issues, so I’m concerned.”

Co-host John Berman was less concerned about the singer’s welfare. “The president obviously loved it,” he said, adding that he didn’t think too much about Kanye, calling him just “another entertainer deciding to get political on company time.”

West had a busy weekend, which left many like Camerota scratching their heads. After his MAGA-tinged performance on “Saturday Night Live,” he went on rant to audience members trashing Democrats, and the liberal media. He also defended his very public friendship with Trump — earning him a round of boos.

“So many times I talk to a white person about this and they say ‘how can you like Trump? He’s racist,” said West, still wearing his MAGA hat. “If I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago.”

West did get a shoutout from Trump — who seemed to love his performance as Berman noted.

Things only got stranger for West on Sunday after the star tweeted out his desire to repeal the 13th amendment — which abolished slavery in America after the Civil War.

“This represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs,” said West. “We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”

West took immediate heat, from celebrities including Lana Del Rey, Chris Evans and former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien.
