If you thought Trump was peak idiocracy... you ain't white!

That is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control to say that all Black people need to be Democrat and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote. All of that information is being charged up on social media platforms by Democrats. And Democrats used to tell me, the same Democrats have threatened me. . . . The reason why this is the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump my music career would be over. I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party. And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.
A-men, Reverend

Seriously though, it seems like he took a page from Trump's 2016 strategy.

Phase 1: Say outrageous things that have a kernel of truth

Phase 2: Wait for the media to give you a ton of free publicity, where every time they write something condescending about your positions, it only energizes your base more

Phase 3: Win bigly (in 2024)


If he wins, I hope he appoints Elon Musk as Secretary of Fish Sticks.

This is what happens when the titular leprechaun from the 1993 comedy horror film, Leprechaun, directed by Mark Jones, asks Americans to make a wish and they wish for fewer lawyers in politics

On the bright side, something about a rapper and a Kardashian in the White House screams "ACCELERATION" to me.

Here's a good take on it, looking at it in terms of the symbolism of the Fool; the only member of court who's allowed to tell the truth.

I still can't believe this is another ridiculous thing that we need to deal with!

Kanye's entire existence revolves around pissing people off.

Now it's offensive to be Christian, and drug- and sex-abstinent, and he's using that to farm outrage. If society swings toward looking like a Norman Rockwell painting, he will also swing back to debauchery and debasement. If he doesn't, he will become irrelevant and fall-off, barring some kind of drastic image overhaul. Because of his inherent idiosyncrasies, it's unlikely he will be able to pull it off.

There's definitely a couple types of voter he will appeal to, but he would only stand a realistic chance if he ran under one of the two major parties. He doesn't exactly fit into the "starter pack" of stances for either party, but if he were to run as a democrat and not be shut out by the establishment types and leftists, he could do fairly well depending on who the republican is. The democratic candidate would have to be someone catastrophically terrible like AOC or Bootyjudge for him to have a good chance to win as a republican

As Dave Chappelle said on SNL in 2016, Trump is America's first internet troll president. By your description, sounds like Kanye is fixing to be the second. But yeah. It's Party or bust. In Russia you can always find party. In Soviet America... wait.

Kanye said he'd run as Republican in 2024, so I assume that's how it'll be (who's going to Primary him? Some empty suit like Rubio?). What kind of Democrat he's up against will depend on how badly Trump crushes them. A landslide will make them rethink everything and come back like a phoenix with a real leader. A close result will probably result in them screaming shenanigans, and then you'll have a boogaloo. If Biden wins, probably there will be peace, but.... ugh...

I mean there's peace after you give the bully your lunch money.

There's a whole religion dedicated to that kind of peace.

The first Wakandan president, though. That's gonna be something. I want to see Kanye and Trump fight a duel to the death on top of Hoover Dam. Kanye's young and quick, but Trump probably has some kind of old man strength. Or he could use his comb-over to choke Kanye.

And then like Street Fighter, in the next stage Kanye travels to China to fight Chairman Xi on top of the Great Wall. That livestream would pull in so many views... @[email protected]

...although Xi would probably have a gun taped to his back, because he saw Die Hard and he's no fool.

See that's completely ridiculous and yet totally fits the near-total idiocy displayed by Kanye and Trump on pretty much a daily basis.
