Candace Owens on Kanye West's Pro-Trump 'SNL' Speech: 'One of the Bravest Men in America'
Kanye 'standing up to the mob,' left-wing bullies.
The rapper was the show's musical guest over the weekend, and at the conclusion of the broadcast delivered a diatribe about his support for President Trump.
West's speech was not aired on television, but video of it was captured and posted online by audience members, including comedian Chris Rock.
Rock can be heard in his video laughing and saying "Oh my god."
You consider yourself an artist? What boundaries have you pushed?
Mocking Trump is not pushing a boundary.
Mocking republicans is not pushing a boundary.
The world will remember @kanyewest.
The world always remember true artists.

Owens, communications director for Turning Point USA, said on Monday that West is currently one of the "bravest men in America."
"The left has declared war on our American values, and Kanye is fighting the cultural front," she said.
West has been a vocal and highly scrutinized Trump supporter. He has been active in displaying his conservative beliefs on social media and has also discussed a potential run for president in 2024.
Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!

He stated in his speech on Saturday that "they bullied me backstage. They said 'Don't go out there with that hat on.'"
Many of the "SNL" cast members can be seen with their heads down standing behind the rapper.
"What Kanye is doing is unbelievably brave," Owens said. "To stand up to the mob, to put on a 'MAGA' hat and to say 'I support this president.'"
