Whoa! Kanye West Meets With Conservative Commentators Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk
Kanye is not a Conservative…. but definitely seems interested in what Conservatives have to say. And that’s a win.
Kanye West has been spotted meeting with conservative commentators Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk in Los Angeles following the rapper’s praise for President Donald Trump.
The trio were pictured smiling together as they left their meeting in Calabasas on Sunday.
It comes a week after Kanye dished out praise for Owens – a controversial YouTuber who is an outspoken critic of Black Lives Matter – on Twitter, saying he liked the way she ‘thinks’.

It all started with Kanye tweeting that he “loves” the way Candace thinks. (So do I! We have that in common!)
Owens, who works for the right-wing group Turning Point USA, quickly responded begging for a meeting with the 40-year-old rapper.
‘I’m freaking out. @kanyewest …. please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.’
Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a photo on Monday of Kanye meeting with the conservative commentators, saying: ‘Woah, looks like my pals @realcandaceO and @charlieKirk11 hanging with @kanyeWest yesterday. This should be interesting!’
Kirk, who is the founder of Turning Point USA and is a gun rights advocate, then re-tweeted the image with the caption: ‘Free thinkers only’.
