As if things could not get any weirder, Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday to personally thank Chance the Rapper, who this week defended Kanye West’s Trump-love and wrote that “black people don’t have to be democrats,” as one of the people who “really get it.”
Chance retweeted Trump’s thanks with the comment “nah that aint it yo,” followed by a longer, apologetic message that concluded, “We have to talk honestly about what is happening and has been happening in this country and we have to challenge those who are responsible, as well as those who are giving them a pass. If that happens to include someone I love, someone who is my brother-in-Christ and someone who I believe does really want to do what is right, it’s not my job to defend or protect him. It’s my job pick up the phone and talk to him about”.
