Kim Kardashian West is coming to Kanye West's defense.

The 37-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend her husband and his slew of tweets, including talks of a presidential run, that he's been posting since he reactivated his profile.

"To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic and his tweets being disturbing is actually scary," Kim began. "So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair."

"Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye’s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision," she continued. "So I’m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening."

Kim added that her husband is a "free thinker" and that the backlash that he's received is "just not fair."

"He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive," she tweeted before bringing up Kanye's Donald Trump comments.

"Now when he spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this," she explained. "But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics."

She then clarified that Kanye will "never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time."

The reality star and mother of three concluded by stating that mental health "is no joke" and that the "media needs to stop spitting that out casually. Bottom line."

Meanwhile, Kanye did take to his Twitter account to clarify his previous comments regarding the president.

"My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself," he tweeted.

The rapper returned to Twitter last week and has been sharing updates on his new Yeezy show collection and his new music, as well as serving up a slew of philosophical thoughts.
