Kanye West Storms D.C. Apple Store, Gives 'Keynote Speech' on Table, Says He's Leaving for Africa

Hours after Kanye West gave a 10-minute monologue in the Oval Office and had lunch with President Donald Trump, he apparently stormed an Apple Store in the Washington D.C. neighborhood of Georgetown, climbed on top of a table and gave yet another speech… before declaring he’s leaving for Africa.

Jack Jenkins, national reporter for Religion News Service was there when it happened.

According to Jenkins’ account, West busted into a Washington DC Apple Store Thursday afternoon and asked to give a keynote speech before climbing on a table. It is not actually clear if his table climb was approved by Apple Store staff or if he just did it regardless.

Then, according to Jenkins, West announced he made a hat for Trump that says “Make America Great” sans the “again” — and that Trump wore it.

According to Jenkins, West explained that the "Again" part of the slogan "hurts black people."

And then, as he left, he said he was going to Africa.

1. Most of his fellow Trumpsters would cheer that he's going back to Africa.

Most of his fellow Trumpsters would cheer that he's going back to Africa.

They don't care about his politics except as a useful tool

They only really care about his skin color.

22. Yep, he's clearly off his bipolar meds.

And he thinks his stream of consciousness rants make him a genius.

They'll just watch him go off the deep end, kill himself and inherit all his money.

8. I'm inclined to think that's true

I don't think much of him, but I am concerned he's having a manic episode and have to wonder why it appears that none of the people who claim to care about him aren't intervening.

28. Hope they're not thinking it's good publicity for their reality show. He needs help, his mother gone

unchecked, and not in a healthy place, that's obvious by his crazy on display.
He was always out there maybe helped form part of his creativity but now it's a serious manic mode and needs some assistance, not exploitation.
His antics at Apple today equally or even more bizarre

19. Totally. I've seen it in a friend who went through it. It can be life threatening.

Fortunately she is on meds now.

Where the fuck is Kim Kardashian while her husband is spinning out of control?

My friend's husband was a hero, kept her from getting hurt and got her the help she needed, while protecting their young kids. It was heartbreaking.

12. So perhaps he's some sort of communist.

He communicates that America was never great. I can understand that. Interestingly, right-wingers embrace this.

16. Why is anyone caring about him? Why was he on SNL the other week?

And what happened to him saying that Bush did not care for black peoples? What, he thinks that Trump does? That his evangelical supporters do?

Just as West's political opinions and his appearance at the White House are not important news of national interest, neither is his storming of an Apple store important news of national interest.
