Trump praises Kanye, calls 'SNL' a 'political ad for the dems'

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to give a shoutout to Kanye West for his MAGA-tinged performance on Saturday Night Live — while also taking care to blast the show more broadly as Democratic propaganda.

“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm,” said Trump “It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”

Kanye told audience members at watched the performance that he had been bullied on set for his decision to sing in a MAGA hat and urged not to go on stage wearing it. Facing boos from the audience, West called out Democrats for promoting “welfare” and accused “ninety percent” of the media of being with Democrats.
