Democrats have long claimed to be the “open-minded” political party. However, modern conservatives know that the left is now the complete opposite of that. Since Donald Trump was elected, liberals have been ending friendships and even marriages with people who support him.
It has just been reported that Beyonce and Jay-Z have become the latest “open-minded” liberals to cut off a Trump supporter, as new reports have indicated that they have ended their longtime friendship with Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian over the rapper’s recent pro-Trump rants. AOL reported a source said that Beyonce and Jay-Z are “sick” of West’s pro-Trump views.
“They are outraged over Kanye’s recent political rants,” said a friend of Beyonce’s.
Though Beyonce and Jay-Z have been friends with West and Kardashian for years, they feel that they can no longer associate with them.
“They think Kanye is a disgrace, and is only doing this for attention,” said the insider. “Beyonce and Jay-Z know that Kanye is seeing a future in politics, but they feel that they cannot associate themselves with them from this point forward. They want nothing to do with either one of them.”
This news comes just as it was revealed that West is planning to have lunch with Trump in the White House on Thursday. During this meeting, the two plan to discuss a variety of different topics.
White House @PressSec confirms that Trump will have lunch with Kanye West: “Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago.”

It should be noted that Beyonce and Jay-Z were close personal friends of Barack and Michelle Obama, and they were often hosted as guests of the couple at the White House, just as West is about to be. Perhaps Beyonce and Jay-Z are a bit jealous that they are no longer friends with the president and being hosted at the White House themselves.
Though West did not agree with President Obama’s political views, he never let this affect his friendship with Beyonce and Jay-Z. The liberal couple, however, is now showing that they are far too closed-minded to be friends with someone whose political views do not align with their own.
Ah, the hypocrisy of the left!
