Presidential Candidate Donald Trump and Kanye West have a new brand - Ego Trip. Ego Trip is also the name of the first two flagship products announced by the dubious duo: a rap musical track featuring The Don and Kanye, and a new cologne.
At a joint news conference, Trump's handlers had to keep Kanye away from the microphones at times to let The Don speak, "I'm so happy to partner with Kanye, he really understands the importance of branding, and this may lead to other partnerships with Me and Kanye."
Pitching the new cologne, Trump said of Ego Trip, "I've had this idea for a cologne for a long time. I knew I wanted it to literally smell like both new and old money. Kanye's contribution to the fragrance, the smell of a roaring twenties whorehouse along with the faint touch of gun oil, was genius, this could be the ultimate aphrodisiac."
As Kanye took his turn at the podium he said, "I really want to thank The Donald for investing fifty million in this venture, it wasn't the billion I was looking for, but Donald is a genius, because it takes genius to see another genius."
Kanye promoted Ego Trip the musical track, "This is the title track from my new album KanyEgo Trip, and this is the year that my music, not me, will go Genghis Khan on the Grammys," the last comment leading to nervous laughter in the room.
The chemistry between the two, however, was unmistakable, and they clearly were enjoying their bromance, leading a reporter to ask during the Q&A if Trump might be considering Kanye for a cabinet position or even Vice President.
"Kanye is a great guy, I really like him, and there are a bunch of positions he is being considered for," Trump said.
Hillary Clinton blasted the new partnership, "The Presidency of the United States is a serious job, it looks bad if a candidate is recording songs and selling cologne. This is also a cynical ploy to court black voters while Donald Trump continues to re-Tweet racist comments from white supremacists."
Whenever we quote Hillary Clinton, our team of investigators records her comments to replay them backwards for analysis and discovery of hidden messages. This time investigators only heard an old 700 Club broadcast.
