Watch Kanye West inform Donald Trump of the “YEEZY Effect”
I Made adidas Great Again.
Anyone else having trouble adjusting to the year that is 2018?
Yeah, as wild as the last few years has been, it’s got nothing on 2018. Chicago’s biggest name in hip-hop just hit up the Oval Office to inform our reality TV star/real-estate mogul/sexist/controversial POTUS, Donald Trump, of his YEEZY sneaker successes.
Aren’t there better things to be talking about in the Oval Office?
Oh wait, it is Kanye and Trump we’re talking about, two of Twitter’s biggest wild cards.
While in the West Wing, Mr. West did speak to Don about a wide variety of things, including, but not limited to South Korea, Hillary Clinton, Superman’s cape and the hat, flying a new iPlane (to be designed by Apple) instead of the Air Force 1, and a flex on Yeezy’s successes.
‘You gave me the heart to go to adidas … when I went in, in 2015, [adidas was] a $14 billion company losing $2 billion a year. Now, [adidas has] a $38 billion market cap. It’s called the Yeezy Effect.’
Kanye explains how lack of male role models and lack of exposure to “male power” led him to embrace MAGA which gave him power and “balls” and also helped him make a ton of money with Adidas. pic.twitter.com/4q7n44vfNB

Talk about pumping up your own tyres. But if anyone can appreciate that, it’s the guy who was sitting opposite him; the king of the self-flex.
