In an attempt to send a direct message to President Donald Trump on Monday, the musical artist accidentally tweeted what appeared to be explicit images of himself.

Many have speculated that there might be more to the friendly relationship President Trump and Kanye West have shown with each other in recent months, but it appears that that relationship might be even closer than previously thought.
In what appears to have been an intended direct message to Trump, West posted a tweet earlier this morning with the caption “Heyy Mr. President...” accompanied by an explicit photo.
It should be noted that it is unknown if the photo was of West himself.
The musical artist is certainly known for his strange use of the Twitter platform - for example, he will often take pictures of tweets on his phone and post those pictures instead of retweeting the original tweet, as is the usual convention. This instance, however, seems less intentional, especially considering that the tweet was deleted only a few minutes after it was posted. Many have speculated that the performing artist does not know how to retweet.
Neither West nor Trump have responded to requests for comment.
