Barack Obama was considered in many aspects ‘The celebrity president’. Democrats enjoy the luxury of having famous celebrities endorse their platform and their party with no backlash. Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, Jay-z, LeBron James, or Taylor Swift. Celebrities are given the platform to endorse Progressives and the media NEVER questions whether these people are qualified to talk about these issues or question their mental well-being in doing so.
The rules and standards change however if a celebrity endorses a conservative or even worse Donald Trump *gasp*. On Thursday, President Trump met with Kanye West, Kid Rock, and Legend Jim Brown to discuss a large range of topic and the media could not handle it.
Starting off with Kanye West who showed up to the white house to have lunch with the President and give his support, West discussed a few issues he had while sitting across from Trump more especially the political left.
“A liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism because they know that we are very proud emotional people,” West said. “You think racism can control me? That don’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.”

THIS DID NOT SIT WELL WITH THE MEDIA
The media proceeded to shred West online and on television, not only for supporting Trump but for being a Black Man who supports conservatives. Black Americans are intensely attacked if they do not to toe the line of the Democrat Party and are deemed ‘sellouts’ by Democrats if they leave the party to join Republicans.
This is only a small sample size of the hatred and anger that was directed at Kanye by members of the mainstream media, more tweets and videos can be found here. But he wasn’t the only who the left directed their hostility towards. Civil Rights Legend Jim Brown was also in attendance in which he spoke out against players protesting during the American National Anthem.
Jim Brown, a man who fought institutionalized racism and won was not spared from left wing attacks.
Kid Rock also appeared at the White House on for the president’s signing of a major music regulation bill. Rock who has also been a vocal supporter of the president praised him for the bill and the progress in the country.
“There’s a whole lot of people in this country that do give you a lot of credit for everything you’ve been doing for this country,” Kid Rock said. He continued to say he was pleased that songwriters, producers, and engineers were getting more of a cut in the profits from music, calling them the unsung heroes of the industry.
One thing is certain, today was NOT a good day for the left
