On the one hand you have Kanye West. A musician and controversial figure known for making outrageous statements, attempting to steal the spotlight wherever possible, and seeming to have a strong fondness for his own mental image of himself. On the other hand you have Donald Trump, who shares many of the same characteristics as Kanye. Put the two together and what you have is a veritable stewing pot of controversy.

Which, speculation is already rife, is probably why the two decided to go face-to-face, and causing an epicentre of controversy that would get them both so much attention that they could practically drown in it.

Kanye West recently visited the White House. He delivered a ten-minute speech to Donald Trump, and the United States and the world are already flying back and forth on social media networks, trying to make sense of the bizarre encounter.

The Superman Hat

Arriving with a “Make America Great Again” hat on his head, Kanye and Trump shared an embrace, with multiple cameras snapping away. Wearing the hat made Kanye feel like Superman, he commented.

But this embrace and the hat were small fry, and only one aspect of the meeting that made the world collectively gasp. It was the speech Kanye delivered that really got the social media networks exploding. Kanye swayed back and forth between multiple topics, although the apparent purpose of the speech had been about prison reform. It was a speech, Kanye himself declared, that came from the soul, and was likewise like a fine wine, having multiple notes.

The Revolutionary iPlane Design

The most bizarre moment of the encounter, and the one that is most talked about and ridiculed, is the moment that Kanye pitched the iPlane to president Trump. At one point during his monologue, Kanye suggested that Airforce One be replaced by the iPlane 1. A plane, Kanye explained, that would be designed by Apple. He backed up his iPlane pitch with the idea that if the president doesn’t look good, that the country doesn’t look good. The president has to be the freshest, he added, the flyest.

It turned out that Kanye even had a design for his proposed plane on his phone. He decided to share the design with the POTUS, revealing to the world that the password for his phone was 000000. Much is being made about the over-simplified password, with it being apparent that Kanye is not the most innovative password creator.

Upon being asked about the plane design, Apple said that they were never contacted about the idea, and were completely unaware that such a design existed until it’s grand reveal at that moment. They refused to make further comment, most likely due to the fact that they do not make planes.

The Media Circus Personified

Either way, another media circus has unfolded in the White House, with both parties likely receiving what they wanted from the incident. Which is to say; both would be getting another wave of media coverage, and becoming hot topics on social media platforms across the world.

Just last month Kanye likewise took the social media world by storm, with a Tweet saying that he felt the Constitutions 13th Amendment, which brought an end to slavery, should be abolished. He later added to this Tweet, saying he felt that the amendment should be amended, not abolished. Either way, it was another storm of controversy in a long line of controversial moments for Kanye.

Upon Kanye concluding his speech, Trump commented that the rant he had received was pretty impressive, and quite something. He further said that West could speak for him anytime, was a smart cookie and that he got it. What it was that Kanye got, Trump didn’t expand on. Although he was likely referring to the fact that he and Trump both seemed to play up controversy in the same fashion, for the their own publicity benefit.

Trump To Be Impeached?

There are few United States presidents that have caused as much controversy as Donald Trump. It seems as if from his very first day on the campaign trail, disapproval has plagued him in one form or another. But now, with ever more stories emerging of various alleged wrong doings, the word impeachment is becoming more common, and tensions are growing across the country in equal measure.

Two of the latest scandals involve a guilty plea from Michael Cohen in light of the fact that he paid money to two adult film stars to silence them over their affairs with Trump prior to the election campaign, as well as an incoming probe into Trump demanding that an investigation into potentially questionable links with Russia be halted. If this wasn’t fuel enough, Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty of 8 separate fraud charges.

It almost reads like the script from a political thriller, with the inevitable chaos hovering just on the horizon. But what would happen if Trump were impeached?

Trump – “Markets Would Crash”

Impeachment of a president is no small matter and it can be as complicated as a winning blackjack strategy if the timing is off. However, if done correctly, it’s a process that generally leads to the desired outcome.

In an interview, the president was quick to make clear that if he was impeached, he believed that the United States’ economy would collapse, and everyone would be very poor. Many scoffed at this, claiming it was nothing more than a threat, but the words are probably not far from the truth, at least in some regard.

But how likely is it to actually happen? Rumours have been spreading like wildfire that Trump’s legal team has been shrinking of late, and is about a third smaller than it once was, and significantly weaker. Why? Because, rumours claim, well-respected experts in law have been jumping ship, afraid to be associated with a man that now has a growing 64% disapproval rating.

A Witch Hunt?

The matter of Cohen pleading guilty to paying hush money to Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels is where much of the focus is at the present time. The act was a felony, given that speculation is Trump himself ordered the payments to be made. This situation, however, is now being compared to the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal that broke over 2 decades ago, which resulted in the impeachment of Clinton in 1998.

The words witch-hunt were thrown around frequently during the chaos, with the democrats stating that the love life of the president had no bearing on his ability to hold office. In contrast, it has now become a point of focus from the Democrats, leading many to raise an eyebrow and mutter at the hypocrisy. Either way, it is a scandal that is not going away any time soon, and one that will have to be dealt with.

If Trump were to be impeached, he would be the third United States president to lose his position of power, with both previous men having been acquitted of the charges later. Clinton and Andrew Johnson, who was impeached in 1868, were acquitted post-impeachment by the US senate, and Richard Nixon, who was also in line for impeachment resigned before the process could begin.

Next President?

No matter how likely, or unlikely, it is that Trump is ever impeached, the question that should be on everyone’s mind is; who would replace him if it did occur? The answer to that question, in accordance with The Succession Act of 1947, is current Vice President Mike Pence.

At present, all the world can do is wait with bated breath and watch the situation unfold. Should Trump be impeached, the mop-up operation in the US could have far reaching socio-economic effects that may last for several years. However, judging by the ever-increasing disapproval rating, it seems that a growing number of citizens and politicians think it is worth the risk removing the man from the Oval Office once and for all.
