    You mean this?

    It was surreal moment even for a White House accustomed to surreal moments.

    During a meeting with President Trump, Kanye West delivered animated and wide-ranging remarks on issues from the 13th Amendment to U.S. manufacturing.

    West spoke to reporters for nearly 10 minutes in the Oval Office. Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, he repeatedly complimented Trump, who nodded in agreement.

    West said he loved everyone including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy."

    "It was something about when I put this hat on, it made me feel like superman," West said. "You made a superman cape for me, also, as someone who looks up to you ... looks up to American industry guys."

    After West finished speaking, Trump, who is known for his own stream-of consciousness speaking style, said, "I tell you what that was pretty impressive."

    "That was quite something," Trump added.

    I remember when I got banned for calling someone a ruder, but more historically accurate, version of 'house poodle'. Scot called it 'racism' - but it weren't anything of the sort. There is a certain psychological dynamic involving some oppressed folks seeking approval (and, often, some sort of affiliation/personal advantage) from their oppressors. Kanye strikes me as another hi-profile example of that dynamic in action.

    Just posted a Leonard Cohen thread:

    In a newly released collection of poems, the late songwriter Leonard Cohen unleashed his feelings about self-proclaimed “genius” Kanye West. Cohen wrote back in 2015, “Kanye West is not Picasso/I am Picasso,” in a poem from the posthumously published TheFlame collection. Alluding to other historical pioneers like Edison Tesla, Cohen references Jay Z and “the great bogus shift of bull**** culture.” Cohen passed away in November 2016.

    From what I've heard he one upped Joe Biden in the expletive department.
    He has never struck me as oppressed, looney and crude, but not oppressed

    ^Please feel free to elaborate, compare and contrast and explain how commenting on Kanye’s odd ranting represents a descent down that old slippery.

    Boy howdy. Is anybody a genius who says “I’m a genius” over and over again?

    I tried to watch it - way too painful. I'll try again tonight. That really does seem like B-S crazy meets narcissist. It's a heck of a thing.

    I think you’ve gotten the gist of it. I’d like to add that I’m thrilled to have beaten David G to authoring this topic.

    David, remind me just how lousy the optics can be next time I take off on a rant at an EBS. If there ever is a next time.

    Your rants are, contrariwise, a thing of beauty.

    Let's hope there is a next time. That you realize the folly of your leaving the NW... and return <G> Or at least that you end up in Portland long enough for me to buy you a beer.
