The Twittersphere erupted Wedneday when rapper Kanye West reportedly fired his manager Scooter Braun in the morning and then went on a Twitter spree about President Trump, his fashion line, his daughter and more. The seemingly disconnected tweets prompted concerns (and no shortage of comments) on social media about the former Chicagoan’s mental health.

Kanye even took a swipe at President Obama late Wednesday, proclaiming “nothing got done” during his 8 years in office to help battle racial injustice and crime in Chicago.

Chicago’s Chance the Rapper eventually got into the fray, too, saying that his old friend was “in a great place.”

Presidents were on Kanye’s mind from early Wednesday, when he tweeted his admiration for Donald Trump, calling him “his brother” and proclaiming they were both “dragon energy.” The president responded with a brief “thank you” via Twitter.

The rambling tweets continued throughout the day, at one point Kanye posted photos of his home (apparently), calling it his “sunken place.”

The subsequent social media firestorm drew outrage from his wife, Kim Kardashian West, who went on the defensive in a series of her own tweets. She admonished critics, writing: “Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair.”
