No, I’m not hitting the sauce on 4th of July, but I think Kanye West must be.

What is the most reasonable explanation for this?

  1. The people in the alternate universe told Kanye to do this;
  2. Kanye had way too much to drink at the bar-b-cue and fell down the 13th Amendment trapdoor;
  3. Kim wants to be the next Melania;
  4. Somebody lined Kanye’s MAGA hat with mercury and his brain is gone;
  5. 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

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 think #5, but #1 is a real possibility.

He is just trying to draw the black vote away from Biden so his pal Trump can win….no doubt thought up by the evil Trump.

If so, then, to quote Hoarse Whisperer, my eyes are rolling so hard that I can see my brainstem.

That’s one group that *won’t* vote for Kanye. His would be under 30 and probably not registered.

No, he isn’t trying to do anything political. He’s trying to get publicity. And it’s worked like a charm.

Wow…for a moment I thought i was having a flashback hallucination from all the windowpane in 73. I wonder if he was tired from staying up waiting to see if the underpants gnomes were stealing his underwear? Funny thing is I would consider him over orangebob shitpants. Taylor Swft for his running mate!

Nothing beats windowpane unless it the sunshine flowing through it…

If this is a joke, it’s a bad one. If it’s a scam, it’s a poor one. If Kanye is serious…well, let’s be the opposite.

Kanye has always been a bit out there in his thinking. Makes for a great artist, but not so much in the political arena. Having Kanye for President would be kind of like having Stephen King hosting Sesame Street. It’s definitely thought through and not just off the cuff. Hopefully, if he actually tries to run, and stays in as a write in, his Millennial followers see through the hype and do the right thing by voting for Joe!

Welp lauran, I can just “see” all the delightful similes we could create. Nice one, Stephen King and Sesame Street. Gotta give this some thought.

EVERY time this asshole’s name comes up I do a quick replay of the highlights of the South Park episode that just ripped Kanye and his massively overdeveloped ego to shreds. A half hour of being the butt of the joke. He’s probably refused to watch it but if he had to do a real life version of A Clockwork Orange and see the whole thing he’d be crushed. As for real life and this nonsense yes his ego is that big. He will probably piss off his pal Trump because he believes HE is the greatest person to have… Read more »

You know, that was the very first thing I thought of when I saw this nutso story early this morning–Trump is going to lose what little mind he has left when he learns of Kanye’s “betrayal.” Because as we all know, fearful leader demands loyalty.

I know you’re referring to the “fish sticks” episode, but his other appearance shouldn’t be forgotten. Stan’s girlfriend, Wendy, helped Lisa Burger, a somewhat plain girl on the cheer squad, gain some confidence by Photoshopping her picture and Lisa suddenly becomes the “hottest” girl in school (even though Lisa hadn’t changed a single bit in terms of her physical appearance, all the boys go gaga for her just because of the picture–even when she’s physically in front of them, they only see her based on her picture). What led to the whole thing was Lisa had asked out Butters and… Read more »

I know the episode you’re talking about. South Park could do plenty of episodes sending up Kanye West but as I recall from an old Doonesbury cartoon when someone made a snide comment about Reagan having been an actor the character B.D. (one of their token ultra conservatives who was unexplicably still pals with his old college buddies) said Reagan would be every bit as great a President as he was an actor. One of the others asks Mike if he wants to do the honors (as in the takedown) and Mike replies “I can’t. It’s too easy a shot!”… Read more »

Everything is A-ok! He has elon musk’s support. Ridiculous.

Elon’s board[s] of directors should have canned him, or forced him to go in for a mental evaluation. He’s shown he’s more ego than sense.

Carroll Ann Robinson

Oh. My. God. I missed this entire story until about 4 this morning–was busy all day yesterday writing a chapter for my book that somehow had been erased from my cyber-manuscript. And the piece on musical chairs. Catching up on all the news is hell, you know?
Elon Musk. Crikey. He shouldn’t be allowed to endorse anyone.

The Brits have a ‘Monster Raving Loonie’ party – perhaps he’s joining that

Please do not insult Lord Such. He’s more stable on his worst day than Kanye on his best.

Sadly, Lord Such is dead.

All the more reason to avoid insulting him.

This was so crazy and here it is, true. As you say, what in the hell are we coming to? But you gotta admit: the tweets in response to it are terrifically funny.

There’s been some talk of the Republican Party jettisoning Trump as their nominee. The convention has not been held yet. Could they pdump Trump for Kanye? That would be a sight to behold.

p j evans

I can’t see the GOP doing that. They’d be more likely to nominate Romney. (But they’d go with Cornyn or one of the other RWNJs that are Big Names instead.)

Let’s see if this picture posts. It is a hoot:

Okay, here are my questions: who put Kanye up to this? And who stands to benefit from it? And if the answer seems obvious, I’d suggest it is not. If the bright idea is that Kanye would siphon off black voters from Joe Biden, this will be an epic fail. Folks of color aren’t marching in the streets and endangering their health to vote for a rapper who clearly has mental health issues. And that folks even entertain the notion that they would vote for “one of their own” simply on the basis of color: black folks ain’t either stupid… Read more »

Oh man, this is just the diversion of diversions. See, it got into the news cycles and it gets some heat off of President Tweet.
