New York City’s Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden revealed a conversation he had with Kanye West, after the rap star praised conservative activist Candace Owens on Twitter, in which the Chicago crooner purportedly said he loves President 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.” – Breitbart News

Hot 97 Radio co-host Laura attempted to discredit Kanye West, suggesting that he has no clue what he’s talking about because he lives in a “bubble” in California.

Does that mean the 99% of Hollywood actors who spew hatred towards our President each and every day don’t know what they’re talking about either?

Laura continued with her illogical remarks, as she brought up the controversial interview with rapper Lil Wayne, who told the interviewer that “there’s no such thing as racism.” The female co-host went as far as to say Lil Wayne doesn’t know racism because he’s been famous since he was 12 years old. Watch the video below, as Lil Wayne explains how he was saved by a white police officer after he was shot in the chest and several black police officers jumped over his body to get to the drugs and guns for the bust. He was clearly a gang-banger at 12-years-old and not exactly “famous” like the uninformed co-host tried to make her listeners believe. In the end, it’s not about what these black rappers are saying, it’s about controlling their thoughts and the views that they express, it’s about conformity.


Darden said that West told him that Trump was one of the few people who reached out to him when he was addicted to opioids and in the hospital and was frustrated with the world trying to “demonize” people who thought differently about important issues.

West has been on a week-long Twitter spree sharing his views about how “we have freedom of speech but not freedom of thought” and how “the thought police want to suppress freedom of thought.”

Darden said that he loved Kanye West, but that he was “selfish” “trolly” and a “materialistic” who lived in a bubble and had lost touch with his people.

“Multiple times in the conversation he said, ‘I just want to lead with love, I just want to be about love,’” Darden said of West. “I said ‘You’re a liar because the people you’re aligning yourself with aren’t leading with love.”

On Fox and Friends on Monday, Owens said black Americans were experiencing an ”ideological civil war” in their communities between some who were “focused on their past and shouting about slavery” and those who were “focused on their futures.”

“Victim mentality is not cool. I don’t know why people like being oppressed,” she explained. 

It’s pretty clear that Kanye has no intention of slowing down because his views have not been well-received by the leftist flock. West has been on a two day Twitter rant, railing against the slavery “mentality” and calling “self-victimization” a “disease”.  He’s also tweeted about defending free thought, free speech, and conservatism:
