Manafort flips, at least according to fake news CNN:

It's amazing how many witches the Mueller investigation keeps turning up.

Pompeo takes issue with BBC question about briefing Trump - BBC News

So Pompeo's evasion; do we take that as tacit concession that he is the NYT's anonymous correspondent, or just that he does as anonymous does? Or is it merely expressing solidarity with anonymous? Whichever, it shows Pompeo to be a spineless toady.

But I guess we knew that already.

This person does nice analyses:

Tuxedo Jason Mask on Twitter: "THREAD: Trump is an easy villain to focus on, but I strongly believe that the system which put him in power is a bigger problem. When he says it's rigged, he means for ppl like him. Let's have a look at how much rigging has been going on since Republicans took the House in 2011."

Trumplings are extremely smart. For instance, check out Kanye Ye West explaining how we're going to build gazillions of factories here in the good ol' U.S.A. so that we'll have plenty of jobs for the many, many convicts we must release from prison after we repeal the Thirteenth Amendment.

The author of the Wonkette piece posited a plausible explanation, namely that Kanye watched the documentary titled 13th and didn't understand a goddamn bit of it. I believe that "didn't understand a goddamn bit of it" should be chiseled into the marble floor of the entryway to the Trump Presidential Library.

In the handbook for Narcissistic personalities, Trump will be example #1, Kanye example #2. I'm pretty certain he's hooked himself to the Trump bandwagon because he sees lots of people talking about Trump and got jealous that he was getting so much attention and is trying to lap up as much of it dripping off of Trump as he can.

I've always been a sort of Kanye apologist, mostly because too many people hate him for so little reason. As far as I know, he's never even been accused of anything worse than saying dumb stuff and making ugly shoes.

This redhat stuff is extra dumb, though.

Sure, but some of that dumb stuff includes that Cosby is innocent and that slaves chose to be slaves. Which aren't just one offs, he's defended sexual assaulters more than a few times, has promoted and given them money and seems to be cool with racism.

He has a huge following specifically because of his words put to music, it seems reasonable to judge those words more harshly than others.

What has Kanye West said that's anywhere near, say, the stuff Trump said about the Central Park five? What has he said or done that was actually violent or predatory like the things Trump has said and done?

Kanye can be rude and arrogant, and he is being really stupid right now, but this redhatting is the worst thing he's done as far as I know.

Not mistake, this is bad, though.

Edit: Oops. I did something else, then didn't refresh before responding. I don't know anything about the Cosby thing, and I remember the slavery thing differently, but I could be wrong about that. I'll go look those up.

Some of it really gets down to general opinion. I mean he's certainly not as bad as Trump for shit opinions, few are, and while no one's accused him of sexual assault yet, he's happily defended and given the spotlight to people who've been accused of rape. So really it comes down to degrees of bad and how much each person personally reacts to his variant of bad.

All of that aside he is quite the textbook narcissistic, certainly not Trump's uncanny ability to tick literally every NPD box and possibly create a few new ones, but quite up there on how he thinks about himself, others and his insatiable need to have the focus and attention on him to a pathological degree.

ETA: With narcissists like this it can be really hard to pin down their actual opinion on things, if they even have one. I can't say I know exactly what Kanye's opinions on racism are, vs what he's said because it gets attention and a rise out of people. Given he's insulated from both experiencing the harsh versions of it or needing to educate himself on it. There are people who haven't grown out of the idea that if I shout "Fuck" really loud in the supermarket mommy gives me attention, and I like attention, so I'll just keep shouting "fuck" because all the adults look and react. Does he actually know what his comments about racism mean, or does he do it because people react and give him attention and he doesn't really know why that is, but it feels good so he does it... I don't know.

Kanye's not so bad that it's like "boycott places that hire him" or something like that, but his behavior is obnoxious, stupid and promotes bad things and makes me less inclined to like him, which bleeds over into my opinion of his music.

I already knew he was an asshat when Yeezus came out, but it still had some good songs on it (but also things pointed out like using a sample of a song about lynching to talk about some petty personal drama or whatever).

He'll be fine but if he wants to go around spewing alienating shit to his fans, he's going to alienate some of them :shrug:

With the caveat that I do not give af about Kanye West and am only aware of him and his activities when he delivers some sort of half-baked uninformed rant like this, my first thought when I saw the SNL thing was that this was some kind of flight of ideas-type manic episode and I felt kinda bad for him that it was in public. But it sounds like it is equally possible that maybe he is just an asshole?
