The idea of any member of the Trump family listening to music is objectively weird, never mind when they start sharing their opinions on it. Alas, that's the situation we find ourselves in with Donald Trump Jr. who has revealed himself to be a big fan of Kanye West's new album, Jesus Is King.

Tweeting about the album on Monday, Don Jr. said that Kanye is "cracking the culture code" and went on to add that the album is "the epitome of fearless creativity and “dangerous, unapproved” ideas." Not sure who he's quoting there, to be honest.

Music's newest critic wasn't done there, either. He took aim at his political rivals, adding: "Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They’re waging a war on our family and culture. Kanye is a pioneer."

Read it and weep:

Kanye distanced himself from politics earlier a year ago, saying he had been left feeling "used" by his embrace of President Trump and other figures on the right. However, he has subsequently gone on to claim that Democrats are forcing Black Americans to have abortions and strike up a friendship with Trump supporter, and Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr.

Since releasing Jesus Is King on Friday, Kanye has staged a Sunday Service at the Forum in Los Angeles and made an appearance on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke.
