Sources close to the duo tell The Blast that Kanye and The Mooch are actually good friends.
We’re told the two, who first met on Trump’s campaign trail, have been texting back and forth and speaking fairly frequently. Our Mooch sources say that Kanye views him as a “back channel” and an outlet where he can freely express his conservative views.
One person described their friendship as simply “two Trump supporters discussing ideas.”
West tweeted a screenshot of a conversation between the two, showing Mooch sharing a supportive tweet from Chance the Rapper and adding, “Whoa here we go.”
West has received loads of heat this week for repeatedly doubling down on his love of President Donald Trump – much of which came from prominent black voices within the hip-hop community, such as Snoop Dogg.
As for the Kanye/Scaramucci lovefest, we’re told The Mooch is also a big Kanye fan.
