Kanye West must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Ye has been posting and deleting insults against his ex-wife’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, almost daily. Kanye has also used the platform to accuse Kim Kardashian of not letting him see his children.

West has always had an affinity for gobbling up right-wing rhetoric. Kanye has been spotted wearing MAGA hats, visiting Donald Trump, and even being used as a pawn to pull black voters away from the Democratic Party. It is subtle, but it is apparent that Kanye West consumes plenty of that type of media.

The right frequently positions themselves as victims in some unspoken cultural war. The normal heavy hitters always get their name-dropped. Constant mentions and finger pointing at MSNBC, CNN, Saturday Night Live, and The Daily Show are among the warning signs that someone has fallen into the disinformation trap. Kanye’s posts have hit all those notes.

Hillary Clinton is now included. Kanye shared a photo of Pete Davidson’s tattoo of Hillary Clinton. Not only did he share it, but he called Hillary a tramp. Kanye insinuated that Pete’s admiration for the former First Lady and Senator is a sign of weakness.

Ye referred to Davidson as “Tramp Stamp Pete” in the post, which will likely be deleted soon. It seems like an odd thing to make fun of somebody for unless you’re gaslighting your audience with low-key political messaging. At this point, that’s most of how Kanye West spends his time on social media.

Kanye has tried to win back Kim Kardashian through any means. Kim has been resistant to those efforts. It seems as though Kanye is pulling a classic trick from the right-wing handbook. If all else fails, blame the liberals.
