9 Ways Trump is Literally Kanye and What That Means for Democracy

by

Wednesday, May 9, 2018


Many claim that Trump is literally Hitler. His policies are racist, isolationist, and killing thousands of people. Fringe right wing groups voiced support for him, just like Hitler led the Nazis to power. He otherizes people and even once stood at a podium before crowds of people.

With his blundering attempts at nationalism and the fact that both he and Hitler have eaten gluten, they contend that he is literally one executive order away from the Third Reich.

This line of reasoning is balderdash and based on flimsy correlations. However, after further analysis, Trump could be literally only one album away from being the baddest MC since College Dropout.

Debates over tax plans, growing debt, education, and budgets have become distractions. Their implications are nothing compared to this newfound case: Is Trump Hitler or Kanye? I will prove the latter.

 

 

  1. They are Geniuses

Trump has said that, after all his exploits, he is without a doubt, not only smart, but a genius. IQ tests confirm that he is in fact a genius. With the groundbreaking production of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye ranks among luminaries like Edison and Descartes. Here the similarities only begin.

2. They Have Trophy Wives

 

Kim and Melania both purse their lips. They don’t say much of merit. They’re both famous for being publicly naked at one point in their lives. They are the same, perhaps exactly the same, archetypal trophy wife.

3. They Are The Greatest

After a year in office, Trump claimed that he has passed more legislation of any president in history ever- except maybe FDR. Kanye tweeted that the second verse of Slaves off his album Yeezus is, “the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD.” If taken at their word, they are the greatest.

4. They Pursue Secondary Business Ventures

Most people choose a career and stick to it, but not these counterparts. Trump has steaks and degrees alongside his real estate businesses. Kanye likes to rock his own Yeezy shoe and clothing line. They are both trying to dominate industries beyond their main pursuits. And yet, they let few, if any, into their family business.

5. They’ve Gone Broke

Trump made a decisive financial decision to file for bankruptcy and Kanye used his influence on twitter to ask Mark Zuckerberg for a billion dollars on his birthday. They took advantage of their supposed poverty to tactfully amass an even larger financial wealth and perhaps both flaunt their commitment to Broke Phi Broke.

6. They May Be The Best Ever At Everything

Beyond rapping, Kanye is also the greatest fashion designer, father, and rock star of all time. Trump is the smartest, healthiest, most caring to Vets, least racist, strongest, Bible-loving president of all time (among many other things). Literally nobody does anything better than them- not even each other. If they are one, then they are the greatest at everything.

7. They Go Off Script And Are Best Seen Live

Nothing beats Trump casting off his establishment shackles, throwing the script aside, and leading his audience in his chants to ‘lock her up.’ If one enjoys Kanye’s music, then nothing can top his tangential rants about the media’s hypocrisy after which you sing every word to Jesus Walks, only to find Jesus literally walk out on stage.

8. They Both Interrupt Powerful Women

Because Hillary Clinton is wrong and Beyonce did have one of the best videos of all time.

9. They Both Love Fast Food

What they order? Fish Filets. The evidence is damning.

 

Initial comparisons nearly convinced me that maybe Trump literally was Hitler. However, experience and time have proven that Trump is not in fact Hitler. The supposed oppressive, dystopian regime has not panned out. The police do not black bag dissidents. Protesters still take to the streets. The Government has staged no military parades or books burnings. I will no longer give ear to these accusations that my elected President is a fascist.

The conversations we need to be having surround the implications of Trump as Kanye. The rapper has already declared his intentions to run for president. With a double term from Trump and then a double term from ‘Kanye,’ he could centralize his power and begin a totalitarian regime. Further discussions about whether or not Trump is Hitler, tax plans, and the practical policy with which the establishment want to distract us mean nothing when Trump could literally secure himself a dynasty.
