CNN is covering this live (why, I don’t know), and Kanye is very, very, very wound up. He cannot stop talking, he cannot even pause, and his topics, such as they are, are flying and skittering all over the place. At one point he said that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and then he said another psychiatrist told him: “No, you aren’t bipolar, you’re sleep-deprived, and it’s going to give you dementia in 20 years.” Trump is sitting very very still and has his “serious face” frown going. The photographers are clicking away madly. The whole thing is so outlandish that finally the CNN anchors just arbitrarily cut away while Kanye was in mid-...sentence/paragraph/document.

I’ve been trapped in conversations with people like this. It’s suffocating.
