Kanye West tweets support for Trump and lambastes Barack Obama. Glenn Beck reacts

On Thursday's episode the "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn made sense of what occurred on Twitter this week between rapper Kanye West, President Donald Trump, the left, and communications director for Turning Point USA Candace Owens.

What's going on?

West, known for being outspoken, praised Owens last week in a tweet that sent many on the left -- and the right -- into a media meltdown. Is West suddenly a conservative? Probably not, but he is going against leftist groupthink by aligning himself with not only the president but conservative thinkers.

West condemned Obama and the mob

In seven words, West praised Owens for the way she thinks and condemned the "thought police." Owens is often critical of Black Lives Matter and Democrats who she says have decimated black communities and communities of color through their policies.

"You don't have to agree with trump (sic) but the mob can't make me not love him," wrote West.

"Free thinkers (sic) don't fear retaliation for your thoughts. The traditional thinkers are only using thoughts and words but they are in a mental prison."

West then posted a picture of himself in a red "Make America Great Again" hat signed by Donald Trump. "Thank you Kanye, very cool," responded Trump.

Later, Chance The Rapper chimed in with a tweet of his own saying "Black people don't have to be democrats (sic)."

Those in the mainstream media were quick to discredit his mental health for his unapologetic support for the president, but the rapper's wife was quick to rush to his defense on Twitter.

"He's a free thinker, is that not allowed in America?" she wrote.

Former President Barack Obama has repeatedly called West a "jack*ss" in numerous interviews, however, the rapper has heavily criticized Obama for Chicago's lack of progress.
