West recently reactivated his Twitter account after spending several months away from the platform and quickly hopped back into his stream-of-consciousness posting style.

Celebrities unfollowed, fans dragged, and the alt-right rejoiced as the Chicago Rapper boasted about having his Make America Great Again cap signed by Trump. Trump tweeted on Wednesday, quoting West's tweet.

The rapper shocked many when he voiced his admiration for the President, writing that the two are both "dragon energy". He is my brother. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

Yes, Kanye's tweets are random AF but haven't we come to expect that from the fella who famously tweeted about how emotional fonts make him feel?

"Yes, we have the right to independent thought and I independently think Kanye has lost his mind", Colbert said to applause. "But now that I'm on the charts next to them, I'm not really Little Homie anymore". I'm not scared of the media.
