Thank you Kanye, very cool is a phrase from President Donald Trump’s tweet, in which he replies to a tweet from hip-hop artist Kanye West.
Kanye West posted a tweet on April 28th, 2018, in which he explains his love for the President, despite their disagreements.
The same day, Donald Trump made a response on the social media site, tweeting “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”.
Both tweets received a substantial amount of likes and retweets.
On April 26th, 2018, one day after Trump tweeted the sentence, a photoshop edit of the encounter was uploaded to Reddit, depicting an infantile stick figure drawing of Trump and Kanye.
Other edits would be uploaded to subreddits like r/me_irl, r/MemeEconomy and r/dankmemes.
The format later spread onto other social media sites, like Facebook or Instagram.
