What a joke. Not gonna solve anything in Chicago or anywhere else with any of that attention seeking nonsense.
I find it sad that anyone would think it "a joke" for someone to seek attention/shed light on the problems of violence, poverty, unemployment, drugs, etc. in inner-city Chicago (or anywhere).  Turning a blind eye to these issues is what's "not gonna solve anything"!  

Except, I don't think that's what he was saying, or meant, Gypsy.

I think what Axl was saying (and I agree with him, if it is) was that particular instance wasn't calling attention to anything except how uncomfortable it was.  There was literally zero content to be derived from that 10 minute Kanye monologue. It was a "lunch" that turned into an incoherent manifesto delivered at a press event.  Any message he was trying to get across was completely obliterated by the manner, and method, he delivered it.

Something he has in common with our president, actually.

I don't think Axl finds "seeking attention/sheding light on the problems of violence, poverty, unemployment, drugs, etc. in inner-city Chicago (or anywhere)" to be a joke.

He found the method they tried to accomplish it to be a joke (and contrary to having any sort of effective dialogue about it).

Oh ní donít let any of this distract from the Khashoggi killing.
This tweet was posted literally within an hour of the broadcasted (on tv & the web) press conference by State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert on the matter.

Again, I suspect you're misreading it, here.

I don't think that last bit was addressed at Trump or Kanye or the US Govt.

It was addressed to "us", his followers.

And he's right.  The Kanye spectacle is/was far less important, and far less impactful long term, than the Khashoggi killing.  Kanye's...whatever that was....was a distraction (and I don't mean an intentional distraction for some purpose, I mean a distraction in terms of it's relative importance), the Khashoggi killing is an international issue.

This is the real "winning" Trump was dogwhistling for:

And of course, cheating your compatriots out of massive amounts of money is also a form of "winning":

why would you say I don't know many black people are telling him to quiet down?

Because you said "I don't think white people should try to control what black people have to say about their culture", as if the people telling Kanye to shut up are all white. Derp.

maybe he sees that under a black liberal president, the black communities did not improve.

False. Black unemployment (Trump's favorite thing to take credit for) was decreasing AT A HIGHER RATE under Obama. Gee, it's almost like he's taking credit for the leftover effects of the black man's work!

I know reading FACTS is an anathema to you, but here, give it a good ole college try:

No support acts have been announced.

I don't know if there'll be any, or if they'll be local...

Any thoughts on the first lady's that's today about being the most bullied woman in the world?

What do I think?

 rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl

That's what I think.

I've no doubt she has it tough. And I certainly have some sympathy for her (she looks miserable every time she' with him).  But....the hyperbole isn't really going to do her any favors on this one, given her husbands propensity for it (and for lying).

And it's hard to take her seriously (or her internet bullying campaign) when her husband is an actual (frequent) bully...who she doesn't condemn.
Wasn't she a partner in crime with Trump on the birther bullshit?

Yup.

An actual immigrant claiming an actual citizen at birth wasn't a citizen. That's rich.

and prison reform is an important issue to him. so maybe by working with the president and not just spreading hate, he can actually accomplish something. maybe get some prisoners released that have done more than their fair share of time. maybe get laws changed to address the problem. Trump is actually talking about this. how anyone can view this as a bad thing is beyond me.

and am I 14 years old? that's quite the insult gramdma.
Assuming that can happen obviously that would be great. With the current congress though i have my doubts.

you're right. it's going to be a challenge and I have my doubts as well. I hope trump really pushes for it and exposes anyone that serves as a major hurdle.
Possibly after the election. I expect both houses to look vastly different.
