I’ll make this short.
No. Absolutely no.
Kanye is a polarizing figure. We don’t need a polarizing figure in any political office right now. What you’re seeing is bipolar disorder in it’s manic episode where a person manifests grandiose delusions, plus he just got a ten-year deal with the Gap. Can you say publicity stunt?
As if 2020 couldn’t get any more crazier —well we’re still in July and there’s five more months to go before we can all yell “Jumanji” on New Year’s Eve— we were subject to an ‘explosive’ tweet by Kanye announcing his run for President. Yet again.
It was an ambitious and ambiguous tweet. You mean this year, 2020? With four months left before the elections, it’s a wee bit late to get one’s name on the ballot and delegates have already been chosen. Does he mean 2024? Still sounds overly grandiose. The man and the family to whom he is attached to are known for being press whores. He knows the influence and power he has with the media so he can get the spotlight back on him easily with just a tweet.
People responded with a well-known fatigue upon hearing of anything Kanye.
Jarrett Hill said it best in his tweet thread:
SWM is out too.
Even as SWM writes this, realize that you and I might be part of a simulation in West’s bipolar mind of his fantasy to be President because it simply sounds ludicrous. It is crazy talk. We shouldn’t give validity to what he says given his medical history, public breakdowns and outbursts.
But that’s what celebrities who want to reshape their public images do. That in itself has been his campaign for years now. Just as Bill Gates did to clean up his public image after scandals with Microsoft. Rockefeller did the same as well. Scrub the bad stuff you did and churn out happy talk.
People quickly forget that he said “I sold my soul to the Devil” and “I am a god.” He used to be called “Kanye Pest” by Mark Dice but Dice now defends him. So now it’s [on Trump]“We are both dragon energy. He is my brother” and “Jesus is King”. Don’t forget he still thinks he’s the greatest living artist of all time. Google it.
Kanye got smart to all of the negative press and cozied up to Trump. You know you want some of that magic MAGA dust to fall on you. You also want some of the dollars from Trump’s base to come your way. What better way to dupe people into thinking you are on someone’s side when you’re genuinely not.
Most people forget Kanye donated $73,540 and another $126,460 to a mayoral candidate’s campaign in Chicago. Amara Enyia, a democratic socialist and community activist who ran on a platform to create a ‘Department of Reparations’ in the city of Chicago and called for defunding the police. Is this something a Trump supporter would support?
Kanye is also best buddies with Chance the Rapper who supported her as well and is an anti-Trump voice. Folks play each other but they all have agendas. Agendas that you don’t know of.
It’s also narcissistic and plainly rude to insert oneself into the public’s consciousness during a time of extreme civil unrest, division and turmoil. Tweeting about unity does not bring unity. People are angry out there. They are angry at what’s going on around the country.
There’s an alarming rise of rappers who see themselves as leaders. We’ve seen what a rapper leader has done in the communist utopia of CHAZ/CHOP. America doesn’t need this tomfoolery now.
Don’t buy it. Stand off to the sidelines and just watch. You’ll be thankful I told you so.
Kayleigh McEnany has it more together to make a run for president. Even my cat does.
