HIDDEN HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Even for Kanye West's unapologetic, scandal-prone backers, his ongoing public breakdowns and antisemitic outbursts have reached new heights and turned extreme. This now includes former President Donald Trump, who once bragged that West was a friend of his "for a long time." Ever since West punctuated his modern tirades by submitting on Twitter that he prepared to go “dying with 3” in “JEWISH People today,” the leader of the Republican Party, has told various individuals that the 45-years-old rapper is acting too "crazy" and that he needs some professional “help", as per to two sources with knowledge with know-how of the matter.

Trump's feedback came prior to West’s anti-Semitism reaching a new stage in an interview revealed by Rolling Stone. Kanye West railed against "the Jewish people," at the 'Drink Champs' show saying that he's immune to anti-Semitism accusations since he is a Jew "as the blood of Christ." He then continued to say the "Jewish people control all facets of media and entertainment" and added they have “owned the Black voice” —  a trope frequently espoused by neo-Nazis.

On Sunday, October 16, Trump made it clear that his distance from Kanye West is "strategic," rather than motivated by moral objections. Additionally, he has already privately said that it would be best if he refrains from speaking further about West for the time being, which is an unusual move for the former president who has long enjoyed offering his uninvited comments on celebrity news and A-list tabloid gossip.

Trump berated American Jewish voters on his faltering social media network 'Truth Social' for an alleged perceived lack of gratitude toward him. “No president has carried out additional for Israel than I have,” Trump wrote. “Somewhat astonishingly, even so, our fantastic Evangelicals respect this significantly much more than men and women of the Jewish religion. Especially those people who are living in the United States." Even as he lashes out on social media, Trump has so far maintained a deliberate distance from the Trump-supporting hip-hop artist in the aftermath of the "JEWISH PEOPLE" tweet and West's display of "White Lives Matter" apparel.

West has frequently played the role of MAGA provocateur, wearing a MAGA hat on SNL and gushing over Trump on Fox News. Trump, for his part, has pampered West with public meetings at Trump Tower and the White House, as well as an effort to secure the release of West's friend, A$AP Rocky, who was charged with assault in Sweden.

However, Trump has taken advantage of West's most recent appearance on Fox Information and the antisemitic remarks that followed to openly discuss the issues with a late-night comedy show on major networks, retweet memes making fun of Liz Cheney, and call for "BRING COLUMBUS BACK."
