‘Everybody loves Ye’: Kanye back on Twitter; ‘SNL’ skewers Trump meeting
He returned to Twitter Saturday after a seven-day break, discussing mind control before he was skewered on 'SNL' for White House rant.
Kanye West posted a bizarre video on Twitter Saturday about “mind control,” saying people are trying to control his mind
Kanye West posted a bizarre video on Twitter Saturday about “mind control,” saying people are trying to control his mind and tongue.
“I just want to talk about mind control,” West said in the video. “You know, when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do, or if you post something that’s like positive on Instagram it gets taken down if it’s not a part of a bigger agenda. That’s like mind control. That’s the echo chamber. That’s trying to control you based off of incentivizing you and based off of you getting enough likes. That’s the poison that’s happening with social media.”

This was the controversial rapper’s first Twitter post since Oct. 6th, when he deleted his social media accounts. The video ended a strange week where the rapper met with President Trump in the White House amid dozens of news cameras to discuss Superman, North Korea, the 13th and Second amendments, the Make America Great slogan and how liberals and SNL should be ensuring Trump is “the freshest, the flyest,” president who has “the flyest planes. He has to look good!”
“If he don’t look good, we don’t look good,” West said during the White House meeting, as Trump nodded his head in agreement.
As expected, Saturday Night Live spoofed the meeting, ending with this quip by Alec Baldwin: “Oh my God, he’s Black me!”

West initially posted three videos that were just seconds long before posting a fourth video on Periscope that lasted nearly 10 minutes, according to Fox News.
In the Twitter video, West said he recently received his IQ scores and that they were “Mensa-level” and “Sigmund Freud, Tesla vibes” at 133 and in the 98 percentile. He said it really bothers him when people try to tell him what to say and how to act, explaining it’s as if “you’re touching my brain.
“When someone tries to tell me what to do, tries to tell me what I can wear and not wear, I feel like they’re touching my brain,” he added. “Imagine you like cut your skull open and somebody like touched your brain with their hand, how that would hurt you. That’s how it hurts me when people try to tell me what to do when I’m going from my heart. Try to tell me what to say.”
“It’s all these people—Black people, people on social media, people trying to control us and make us all monolithic thought. They’re trying to control our mind. They’re trying to control my mind,” West said.
Before parting, he noted, “Everybody loves Ye.”
