In the Trump Era, it seems that almost all things are possible.
Even though I find myself often siding with the conservative branch of the GOP in 2018, that isn’t to say that I can’t recognize the absurdity of what we are seeing in Washington these days. Our President was once a reality television star, and is still a bit of a braggart, but that’s why the American people elected him. We were sick and tired of business as usual in Washington and, when confronted with the idea of hitting a big “reset” button on modern politicking, we emphatically went there.
Remember; the battle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump wasn’t so much a political one, but a moral one. The nation envisioned Clinton as the representation of all that is wrong with American politics, having been in the game for decades and having been tied to a number of underhanded and undeniably murky situations. Trump represented something entirely different, even if he wasn’t cut from the same cloth as any of those whose presence has graced the Oval Office in recent decades.
Now, in yet another bit of wild, “only Trump could do it” news, eccentric hip hop superstar Kanye West will be headed to the White House to have dinner with the President.
Rapper Kanye West, who has said that he and President Trump both share “dragon energy,” will drop by the White House this week to have lunch with the president, the White House said Tuesday.
Presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will also meet with West when he visits, press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago,” Sanders said.
Trump on Monday said he had instructed the Department of Justice to work with law enforcement in West’s hometown of Chicago to “straighten out the terrible shooting wave.” The president has also threatened to send in federal forces to clean up Chicago.
Earlier in Trump’s presidency, West’s wife Kim Kardashian had visited 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to speak on behalf of wrongfully accused prisoners, in a move that eventually led to the President granting clemency to Alice Marie Johnson.
