The Late Show with Stephen Colbert roasted Kanye West after he took to Twitter to voice his support for Donald Trump. On Wednesday morning, West posted several tweets about the President, even referring to him as his “brother.”

While West’s Trump tweets generally got mixed reactions, one very stable genius, chock-full of dragon energy, was a fan. President Trump retweeted West’s post, with a personal note:

He said, “Congratulations to President Donald Trump on securing the coveted Kanye endorsement. Not easy to get.
