General lesson we can take from Donald Trump and Kanye West: If someone repeatedly tells you they're the greatest in the world, there's a good chance they're just self-promoting jackasses.

Someone really needs to stop Kanye from tweeting these fake quotes that never existed. Very Trumpish and it is dangerous because dumb people believe and racist people don't care if it is true or false. Quote has been used by racist people for decades it is entirely made up. https://t.co/0gMEi7YXC0
