Kanye West's Twitter comeback is nothing like we expected. Within several weeks, he's spread words of wisdom, announced two albumsfired his manager Scooter Braun, and promoted a signed "Make America Great Again" hat. So it's no surpise that people are still concerned about his mental health (though his wife assures all is ok). According to Ye, in a highly-anticipated interview with Breakfast Club radio host Charlamagne Tha God, he is more enlightened than ever. 

"I think I'm in a stronger place than I ever was. After the breakdown, I'd like to say the breakthrough," explained West of his abrupt meltdown amidst the Saint Pablo Tour in 2016. 

As the two continued their conversation on a grassy hill (an hour and a half in), Tha God finally confronted him on his support for President Trump. 

West explained, "when I see an outsider infiltrating, I connect with that. I like that [Trump] showed you that anything is possible. Even like Virgil working at Louis Vuitton, Trump being in office. It's a time for the unconventional. I'm not a traditional thinker, I'm a non-conformist."

Now, should we be more excited about his upcoming album or his philosophy book
