But he did get in the news cycle before an album drop? Because that's the important part.

Honestly we're such gullible idiots.

He's getting the thing he wants most - attention

I think the vast majority of people knew that he wasn't serious.

Is his music worth all his bullshiat?
 
2020-07-06 9:09:32 AM  
Look, Kanye is not well in the head so we really should have some compassion for him, like trump, except in trump's case we shouldn't.
 
2020-07-06 9:09:45 AM  
I would have voted for him.
Would have made maga heads explode 😂

The vast majority of people were convinced Trump wasn't serious either.

Exactly.

He needs to go away
 
2020-07-06 9:10:41 AM  
This is no doubt part of the conspiracy against him.
 
2020-07-06 9:11:01 AM  
Funny, I see to recall Trump doing something like this.
 
2020-07-06 9:11:02 AM  
However, he is still eligible to register in states such as South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Colorado and Michigan where the deadlines fall in July.

Someone laughed yesterday when I said he could still get on the ballot in swing states and throw the election.

By the by, what is the voter registration cut-off for your state?

There's always the possibility of an armed coupe.


What an army coupe might look like

Who's votes would he steal? Thats the real risk. Could divide the black vote and put Trump back in for a second half

This year is October 9th. But that should only be needed information for people that just turned 18. Any other adults should have done it already, as it is beyond easy to do.

I ain't sayin' he a gold digger...
 
2020-07-06 9:17:06 AM  
He missed in only six states. He can still help Trump by leeching off Black Dem voters. He only needs to look like he got votes in a couple of swing states to steal the election for Trump. I mean they say he got those votes and not Biden. There is no good way to audit. By design.

Unless the swing states do not matter this time. Because Trump only carries a few states. I hope. I wish that he will carry zero states.
 
2020-07-06 9:17:28 AM  
And Musk once again shows his level of crazy by fulling supporting him.
 
2020-07-06 9:17:43 AM  
Kanye could have Kim Kardashian sent to my house for a weekend of sex, and I'd still vote for Biden.

And I'm disappointed in Kanye. Years ago he took a stand and said on live TV that the Bush didn't care for Black people. Now Kanye wants to Fark things up for Black people by possibly giving Trump even a small hand in winning a second term.

Cool, now Trump will definitely win

A condom could have prevented this.

That's a really tough question. I want to say yes, but begrudgingly.

It kind of cements the fact that the GOP is stuck with trump*. No. Matter. What.

Kanye did what now?

The idea was stupid, which means for Kanye it was completely plausible.
 
2020-07-06 9:25:53 AM  
It wouldn't have worked anyway. He'd have to end his businesses and recording, and, as FL, she'd have to leave the show. No way in hell that would ever happen.

Why? Trump has shown you don't have to do any of those things.
 
2020-07-06 9:29:23 AM  
He's best friends with Trump. He's not doing this to beat Trump, he's doing it to take votes away from Biden.

Still want to see the narcissist ruined.
So that when he pulls one of his "LOOK AT ME!" stunts people throw garbage at him.

He can hardly carry a glass of water.

North Carolina, Texas, New York, Maine, New Mexico, Indiana.

Those are the only states where he missed the deadline. There's still Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Florida, Iowa, etc, where he can register.

Georgia has 2 Senate seats up, and was seriously in play (Abrams lost by 50k in a mid-term where GOP states in the south suck ass at voting, and Kemp was purging everything. They had 300k people register from 2018->2019 and 50% were people of color, 50% 18-30, there's going to be about another 200k registered for this election)

A celebrity does something newsworthy and the news organizations report on it.  Is that "falling for it"?

I love your optimism tinged with irony.  It's what we need in these crazy times.

Wisconsin has a ridiculously low bar, too, something like 2,000 signatures, and they have a couple weeks to get those. If he does get on the WI ballot I'm predicting the majority of signatures are gonna be from Waukesha/Ozaukee/Washington counties. Deep red Milwaukee suburbs.

Well yes, it's a transparently obvious GOP trick, which is why in American politics it only has a 40% chance of failure.
 
2020-07-06 9:48:07 AM  
Seems a bit condescending to think black people are assumed to not take their vote seriously and just vote Kanye, when it's probably more likely his votes will come from dumb white kids.

Yes, the vote for the well known Trump fan over the only person who can beat Trump sure would have made MAGAt's heads explode

farking seriously?
