When asked if he "expressed comfort with the idea of doing damage to the former Vice President’s White House chances." "I’m not denying it," Kanye affirmed. "I just told you."
It's safe to say that 2020 has been the worst one on a global level. The bad news just keeps piling up and Kanye West declaring that he's running for President was just the cherry on top. He's been in and out of the news ever since his announcement, but recently, he revealed during a Forbes exclusive interview that he decided to stand for the election just so he could ruin Joe Biden's chances. When asked about it during the interview via text, the Gold Digger singer said that rather than running for president, he was “walking,” quickly adding that he was “walking . . . to win.”
“I think this goes without saying. For this man we all are praying. I have to get this off my chest. Please don’t vote for Kanye West.”— Orion (@DbigOrion) August 7, 2020
When pointed out that he can't actually win in 2020 because he has no actual chances of appearing on enough ballots to yield 270 electoral votes, he told Randall Lane of Forbes: "I'm not going to argue with you. Jesus is King." West then refused to clarify who was running his political campaign, but, more importantly, whether he had strong or any ties to the Republican Party. Despite his statement, he was more than happy to share that he plans to meet with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to talk about "the post-[pandemic] curriculum." He added that he is "designing a school within the next month."
I hope Kanye gets it together, and I wish the best for his mental health, but man, intentionally fucking around with an election is crossing a line IMO. Where's his people at that are enabling this shit? Please don't go vote for Kanye cause you think it's funny/"for the lulz"— RJ (@rjd2) August 7, 2020
Meanwhile, President Trump has severed political connections to his would-be competitor but admitted that he fancied him. "I like Kanye very much," he said. "No, I have nothing to do with him getting on the ballot. We'll have to see what happens." Kanye, on the other hand, has flip-flopped like the hottest new summer slides from Adidas regarding his feelings about Trump. At one interview, he claimed, "I am taking the red hat off with this interview... [Trump] looks like one big mess to me. I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.” Then, in another: "Trump is the closest President we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation."
A vote for Kanye is a vote for Trump. Don’t be fooled, drain the republican swamp. Vote Biden https://t.co/OaJjDUzsEy— linda (@linda76067356) August 8, 2020
During one interview, West claimed that he was dumping Trump. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.” His reason: “It looks like one big mess to me. I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.” Though West and Trump don't seem to be getting along so well now, we know for sure that West's Presidential campaign is indeed a direct attack on former Vice President Biden's shot at winning the November elections. Lane argued that Kanye was not only eager to criticize Biden, but "expressed comfort with the idea of doing damage to the former Vice President’s White House chances." "I’m not denying it," Kanye affirmed. "I just told you."
The folks that say they want Trump out, but then vote for Kanye as a protest vote cause they don’t like Biden makes zero sense to me.— J. Dub (@BlaqIce18) August 6, 2020
Meanwhile, the rapper has also done a good deed in recent times, as we reported earlier. Kanye West made a huge donation worth $2 million to support the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, a representative told CNN. The donation also includes funding for legal fees for Arbery and Taylor's families. It also helps black-owned businesses in crisis in West's hometown Chicago and other cities. West's representative mentioned that he established a 529 education plan, which will fully cover college tuition for Gianna Floyd, George Floyd's six-year-old daughter. West's donations to support black lives comes at a time when several celebrities from the industry are protesting to put an end to racism and police brutality.
I don't know which thing is pissing me off with greater ferocity right now: Kanye West on the ballot or the reality that a handful of *Democrats* will actually vote for him. Let's call it both.— Bob Cesca (@bobcesca_go) August 6, 2020
