Amid a barrage of vicious attacks and criticism from the left, rap superstar and fashion mogul Kanye West did not waver and doubled down on his support of President Trump and his efforts to promote free speech and thought.
After West expressed love and support for the president in April and donned a Make America Great Again hat, celebrities and the liberal media began castigating him, warning that he is “a fucking moron,” a “freaking lunatic” and declared that he is “all white now.”
The Grammy-winning rapper even had to beef up security after a former member of rapper Snoop Dogg’s entourage called for gang members to assault him for supporting Trump.
But a majority of the American people are backing West and aren’t swayed by the bigotry of limousine liberals.
In fact, West and Trump have garnered more support througout the backlash.
Not only did Trump’s approval rating among black men double from 11 percent to 22 percent after West came out in support of the president.
West’s album, “Ye,” was just released and it is now the number one album in the country — and the world.
More from TMZ:
Kanye West’s album, “Ye,” is already crushing numbers … and it’s only been available for a few days.
Numbers for the 7-song project are astounding — Kanye’s filled the top 7 song spots on both Spotify and Apple Music — and the album’s already accumulated over 100 million streams total.
To add to those stats …
— #1 iTunes Album in 63 countries.
— #1 Spotify global peak position.
— #1 Apple Music album in 83 countries.
West debuted the album to a few hundred people at a ranch in Wyoming … complete with open bar, tons of celebs, campfires and horses.
West’s wife, reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian, met with President Trump at the White House last Wednesday to request he pardon a 62-year-old great grandmother serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a first-time drug offense.
Shortly after her meeting with President Trump, Kardashian praised the president.
Trump commuted Alice Johnson’s life sentence Wednesday and reality star thanked President Trump and celebrated on social media.
So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance.

Anti-Trump leftists are not succeeding in galvanizing the public against West, Kardashian or Trump. Kardashian is getting more praise than hate from folks on both sides of aisle.
