And so he was like — you know, before he was president of the United States he was just a TV host. You know, I think they viewed him maybe as harmless and he was — he was somebody that they could aspire to or at least aspire to that lifestyle. But I think now the terms have changed a little bit, so that’s why you see so much outrage against Kanye. Let's point out, too, Kanye does have an album coming out.”
