New York City’s Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden went on air and described a conversation he had with Kayne West where he claimed he loved Donald Trump.
“He said, ‘I love Donald Trump,’” Darden said on Monday, telling his shocked co-hosts that he contacted West to express some concern about his weekend tweets.
Darden, an Obama supporter whose regularly railed against Trump, said that he talked with the rap superstar for about 30 minutes to try and understand what he was thinking.
“Kanye wants to deprogram people, that’s his ultimate goal, is to have people think differently than we’ve thought before,” Darden said. “The only reason he likes this Candace lady is because she’s challenging conventional black thought.”
This revelation comes after Kayne West took to Twitter to defend Candace Owens.
I love the way Candace Owens thinks
