Cleveland Cavaliers Get Kanye West to Finally Shut the Hell Up

Kanye West spent almost the entirety of Wednesday going on an oddly-constructed tirade on Twitter. The megalomaniacal rapper touched on topics ranging from criticizing Barack Obama, praising Donald Trump (an odd endorsement from the man who famously stated "George W. Bush doesn't care about black people", going as far as to post a picture of himself rocking a "Make America Great Again" hat.

His ranting also included a persistent request to meet Apple CEO Tim Cook, screenshots from his friends questioning him about the MAGA hat, a ton of half-intended inspirational quotes, claiming to be "nice" at ping-pong, and a drop-in from his wife, Kim Kardashian requesting him to clarify that "I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100 percent with anyone but myself."

After claiming to be "out of the sunken place" (a reference to the film Get Out) and the start of a weird bromance between West and Trump, it ended. A full day's worth of incessant and weird as hell tweets all came to an end. Because Kanye needed to watch the Cavs game. To be fair, it was a hell of a game. The tension for Game 5 could have stopped any manic-tweeter in his or her path.

Looks like hat buzzer-beater wasn't the only incredible ending from the Cavaliers last night.
