Kanye Jumps On A Table At An Art School, Proceeds To Rant About Elon Musk

Another day another Kanye West public rant.
On Tuesday (October 2), the "All Mine" rapper took his talents to Detroit's College of Creative Studies for a surprise visit of one of the art school's automotive design classes (he left his Make America Great Again cap at home for this trip). In Ye fashion, the "I Love It" rapper made the visit a memorable one as he proceeded to jump on a table and deliver a very passionate rant about innovation and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
"I have to innovate!" he told students before diving into Elon-talk. "Elon Musk, I don’t give a f**k who is over at his house, leave that man the f**k alone. Leave that man the f**k alone," he yelled, seemingly referring to the media scrutiny the Space X founder came under a few months back when Azealia Banks called Elon out on social media after a weekend visit to his Los Angeles home. Following the visit, Azealia claimed to have seen Elon on acid. However, she later apologized.
Kanye's art school rant comes just days after he went on a pro-Trump rant as the closing credits rolled on Saturday Night Live's season 44 premiere. "It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies.," he said while wearing a MAGA hat. "You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now."
He then removed his MAGA hat before putting it right back on, saying, "Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do. Follow your heart and stop following your mind. That’s how we’re controlled. That how we’re programmed. If you want the world to move forward, try love."
A source later told People: "No one bullied him about wearing the MAGA hat. He wore it in promos and all week before the show even aired and was asking everyone if they thought he should wear the hat, interns, anyone walking by who would listen."
