      Having a bad day? Wondering whether or not you should just crawl back into bed with a bottle of Jack, start watching Netflix's The Crown, and eventually sob yourself to sleep right around the time Elizabeth Debicki shows up looking more like Lady Di than anyone not named Lady Di?

      Don't worry you're not alone. There are times when the world indeed looks like something that's going to hell in a flaming handbasket. Like, for example, today. 

      You know what December 1, 2022 will be remembered for going forward? That would be Kanye West dropping by the set of Info Wars to hang out with Sandy Hook-denier Alex Jones while wearing a black hoodie over his face and talking in a voice that suggests he's channelling your favourite nerd from your favourite '80s teen comedy.  

      Funny right? Well maybe. Until Ye does the one thing that he's become awful at in his old age: talking. 

      In this case, talking about Hitler, his sage observations starting with "I see good things about Hitler also". 

      After which, rather than pulling his Adidas Yeezy 450 Sulfur running shoes out if his mouth, he goes onto to praise the Fuhrer for inventing highways and microphones, and then notes that he's done with refusing to give credit where credit is due. 

      And really, who can blame him for his thinking? If you try hard enough, you can probably find something nice to say about Ted Bundy, Pol Pot, Jihadi John, Willy Pickton, Donald Trump, Vlad the Impaler, Josef Stalin, Kyle Rittenhouse, Satan and that guy who keeps parking in front of your house when that spot is clearly meant for you and only you. 

      Actually, let's blame the fuck out of West. Because there are places sane people don't go. The key word being "sane". 

      And sane people don't make comments like "Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler."

      Here's the interview segment. And don't worry—we're not judging you for crawling back into bed. The world is sometimes a truly awful place, and there are days when it's just better to hide from it. 

      As a post-script, ever wonder if Ye has, without telling anyone, decided to rebrand himself as an Andy Kaufman-style performance artist out to enrage, well, everyone? After all, considering the person is wearing a black hood over his face in the Alex Jones interview, it's possible we're actually looking at your racist Uncle Ernie on-set and in disguise. And, making one wonder if Ye himself is confused by what West, er Yeezy, er Yeezus, er, whatever he's calling himself this week, the rapper took to Twitter later this morning with a couple of confusing Tweets. 

      What the fuck indeed.
