Kanye West initially announced his presidential candidacy on July 4th, which we thought was a fluke. But to our surprise he was serious! We are still trying to wrap our minds around why West wants to become President and more importantly is he mentally stable enough.
So, many random outbursts during the rally… West, 43, claimed abolitionist Harriet Tubman “never actually freed the slaves. She just had the slaves go work for other white people.”
“So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to,” West said. “She stood up, and she protected that child.”
West needs 10,000 signatures by noon Monday to appear on South Carolina’s ballot for the Nov. 3 election. He has urged followers on Twitter to sign the petition. West’s campaign last week filed the required paperwork to appear on the ballot in Oklahoma, but the campaign has missed the deadline to appear on many state ballots, including key states like Florida and Texas.
In federal campaign forms filed last week, West listed his party affiliation as “BDY.” West said in a July 8 Forbes interview that he was running for president in 2020 under a new banner — the Birthday Party.
2020 is still trying us…
