One of the more distasteful aspects of Donald Trump’s “presidency” is that it has apparently empowered members of the lunatic fringe, i.e., Trump’s cult, to believe that they, too, have a shot at the White House. And who can really blame them? If Trump has managed to do it, soiling America and the image of the Oval Office since square one, anything is possible in American politics, right? To that effect, Kanye West has thrown his hat in the ring. It’s not a joke, he’s really doing it. Politico: Over the past two weeks, questions have been raised about West’s intentions, with New York Magazine quoting Steve Kramer, a get-out-the-vote specialist whom West had hired, claiming that West had dropped out, and TMZ reporting that his family was concerned for his mental health. That changed Wednesday, when he suddenly filed to be on the November ballot in Oklahoma. […] West, who announced his White House campaign on the Fourth of July, filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission last week, listing “BDY” — the Birthday Party — as his party affiliation. He tweeted Saturday for supporters to get him on the ballot in South Carolina. “Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations,” he said, listing eight venues and linking to the website kanye2020.country. “You can also sign up at the website.” And he’s hosting his first campaign rally at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, South Carolina, for registered guests only Sunday, starting at 5:00 p.m. EDT. Attendees will be required to observe social distancing, wear masks and ala Trump, sign a liability release form. This is a bridge too far. We need a constitutional amendment, and we need it stat, that states that anybody running for the office of president needs to have held elective office previously. This situation, where somebody can come out of the blue and ride a populist wave into the White House is going to destroy us. I don’t know what the framers had in mind when they left the requirements so open, but clearly they didn’t anticipate television or the cult of celebrity. This is unspeakable. I didn’t think that there was a bigger phucking idiot than Donald Trump, but I believe Kanye West is just that.
No, I’m not hitting the sauce on 4th of July, but I think Kanye West must be. We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future.

(@SDR_490) July 5, 2020 What is the most reasonable explanation for this? The people in the alternate universe told Kanye to do this; Kanye had way too much to drink at the bar-b-cue and fell down the 13th Amendment trapdoor; Kim wants to be the next Melania; Somebody lined Kanye’s MAGA hat with mercury and his brain is gone; Kanye is so effing stupid he thinks life really is a TV show, just like Trump. Here’s a great SNL clip that addresses this. UPDATE: 7:55 p.m. PDT Kanye West says he's running for President. He had previously said he was going to run in 2020, but then said he'd postpone his run to 2024 https://t.co/7WZZFlF5K1 — Christopher Donato (@chrisdonato04) July 5, 2020 Somebody is loaded or crazy or both today. Or, maybe his BFF Donald Trump phoned him and cried that his fee fees were hurt so Kanye decided he’d play president later, ya spose? What a world we live in. But, on the other hand, you can’t blame Kanye. He’s already seen a completely unqualified, mentally unstable moron get elected, why would he think he couldn’t do the same? Trump is sending a terrific message to America.
I don’t know what meds Kanye West is on, but apparently he’s off them, or was when he gave an interview to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Thursday, upon the release of his newest album “Jesus Is King.” Whether Jesus is king or not might be debatable, but it’s a certainty that Kanye West is screaming banana bonkers. The Week: “I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time,” West said. “It’s just not even a question anymore at this point. It’s just a fact.” The greatest “human” artist, he qualifies. Okay…does that mean that there are non-human artists, we should know about? Polar bears doing ice sculptures, blowfish creating tasteful mosaics out of coral reef? Or, maybe West is talking about other non-human beings, such as the ones that his medication is supposed to control, they who flit about in the corners of his vision, flapping their leathery wings, and flashing their fangs? Only his shrink would know for sure. And perhaps Donald Trump, his BFF and role model. West mentioned this while deciding that it was “God’s practical joke to all liberals” for “the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on,” referring to his support for President Trump, since this is apparently the sort of thing God has time for. “God is using me to show off,” West also said at one point in the interview. Apparently also now beyond question is the fact that a West administration lies in the American public’s future, whether they like it or not. After previously announcing his plans to run for the White House, West stated as a matter of fact Thursday, “there will be a time where I will be president of the Untied States.” Well, now we know what the plot line for “Wingnuttia: The Next Generation” looks like. Kanye West on the GOP ticket and Kim Kardashian as First Lady. Oh, my stars….and they are not my stars, believe me. The consistently strange discussion also included West revealing that he asked those working on his new album to abstain from premarital sex, saying that he’s “no longer an entertainer,” and casually announcing another album to be released this Christmas amid skepticism that he’ll even manage to release Friday’s album. The just released album was twice delayed and with any luck, West’s presidential ambitions will go the same route. The White House needs to be overrun with rabid raccoons and contaminated with flesh eating bacteria, more than it needs him in the Oval Office — even as a guest, for that matter. Delusion this severe needs to be contained. There’s enough full blown crazy on Pennsylvania Avenue these days, we don’t need this loon.
