Yet another turn in Kanye West’s bizarre bid to become the President of the United States has been revealed.
The rapper, who held his first presidential rally recently in Charleston recently, has been the subject of high profile media attention after public personal and mental health issues. Given the choices made by West and those around him, the musician broke down in tears while discussing theology, homelessness, corporate power, and have a long debate with an audience member about abortion.
While many have questioned the legitimacy of West’s bid to replace Donald Trump as the president, the rapper has insisted on numerous occasions that his political ambitions remain sincere. In a previous conversation with Forbes about his political plans, West said: “When the conversation turned to his proposed Presidential run, God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time,” as an explanation for his decision.
“You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy,” he previously said when insisting his plans to become the president are genuine.
While West’s helter-skelter campaign is shrouded in chaos and a distinct lack of organisation, it is certain that he can not win the election because his team has already missed the deadline in multiple different states and can not get his name on the ballot. While a victory seemed highly unlikely anyway, West has now admitted that his efforts have been nothing but a ploy to help Trump’s bid for re-election.
Holding what has been described as a ‘text message’ interview with Forbes, West is asked if he is aware that he can not possibly with the election due in no small part because of the missed deadlines, he replied: “I’m not going to argue with you. Jesus is King.”
When the question was put to him that he is potentially damaging the campaign of Joe Biden, the Democratic politician looking to oust Donald Trump, West replied: “I’m not denying it; I just told you,” in the interview.
The rapper also explained that he is regular contact with Trump, explaining that he is “designing a school within the next month,” and that he is “meeting with Betsy DeVos about the post-Covid curriculum.”
