How Do We Solve A Problem Like Kanye West?

West gave a pro-Trump speech on the 44th season premiere of 'SNL' and, well, we have a lot to unpack.

Kanye West — or Ye, the name he, for whatever reason, wants everyone to call him moving forward — continues to pledge allegiance to Donald Trump

During the 44th season premiere of Saturday Night Live, the rapper donned the ever-controversial MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat. After performing with Kid Cudi and 070 Shake — the thing he was invited to do — he went above and beyond to provide viewers a lengthy political lecture professing his love for our dear president. 

Understandably, his gimmick was cut before it could air, but comedian Chris Rock (who was in the audience at Studio 8H) did the Lord's work and recorded the whole lampoon for us to feast over.

"I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now," Ye started singing. "And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t not stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’ Well…"

"The blacks want always Democrats… you know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare… does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” he continued. "There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago."

You could hear Rock in the background saying "oh my god" while others booed, and about three people clapped. I mean, Trump got more love during his United Nations conference speech.

Of course, Ye's antics paid off, and the petty president praised him for "leading the charge." 

To add insult to injury, the day after Kanye delivered his speech, he took to Twitter to tell his millions of followers he wants to abolish the 13th amendment — the one that made slavery illegal.

Here's a little lesson in history, should you need a quick refresher:

SECTION 1: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

SECTION 2: Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Given the man formerly known as Kanye's track record, it wouldn't be surprising if he confused the 13th amendment for something else. However, he previously preached that he thought slavery was a choice... so make of that what you will.
