This news came much sooner than I expected.
It's being reported that rapper Kanye West, who just announced that he was running for president in the upcoming election, has now dropped out of the race after less than just two weeks.
According to The Daily Wire,
Rapper Kanye West has reportedly dropped out of the presidential race after attempting to get on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina.
New York Magazine reported late Tuesday that a campaign specialist who had been hired by West to get him on the ballot told the outlet West was “out.” The specialist, Steve Kramer, runs a firm helping mostly Democratic candidates getting on the ballots and told the magazine’s Intelligencer that he had been hired to help West. Kramer told the outlet that West’s team “working over weekend there, formalizing the FEC and other things that they’ve got to do when you have a lot of corporate lawyers involved.”
The Intelligencer reached out to West’s publicist, who added another spokesperson to the email chain. No one said anything for a while, so the Intelligencer reached back out to Kramer, who said simply, “He’s out.” When asked for details, Kramer told the outlet: “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today.”
I like Kanye West. I really do.
This hasn't always been the case. I used to think that he was a complete psycho, and he was, but I genuinely believe that he has been born again and is a Christian and has undergone a complete mindset shift.
That said, his platform, VP pick, and even his choice of party name were just irrational. It was a sign that he has no idea what he is doing and it's better than he not be in the race and just cast his vote for President Trump.
