Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Kanye West has announced his plans to run for US presidency in 2024. But before potentially moving into the White House, the rapper might change his name. "When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is," he said. "It will be on the license plate."

Conservatives picked Trump, a reality show blowhard, to lead their party.

Would Kanye really be in any way out of character for them at this point (aside from the fact he is black)?

It is really just the next logical progression.

Kanye/Nunes 2024!

After Trump goes to prison for his crimes, This would be the topper.

This idiot running for president as an (R)tard.

Watching the racist GOP heads explode over a black guy as their parties choice for president would be great entertainment, and would likely be the actual death of the GOP.

"every comment they made against him could be deemed racist."

Like, "He said the same thing four years ago"...?

How about "You can't take him at his word"...?

"Seems like Kane is looking for attention. "

Most likely, he's looking for more money and since he's a black egotist, maybe his profile on Mount Rushmore wearing a gold chain.

Not surprising for an old white man.

Kanye's dad was a former Black Panther, journalist, and Christian counselor. Mom, or Dr. West, was a professor of English and department chair at Chicago State. Kanye received an arts scholarship, but ended up dropping out to pursue his musical career. Five years after his first breakout album, he ended up winning a Grammy, and then went on to aggressively blaze a trail for black men as fashion designers. He's up to 21 Grammys by now, the 11th mosto f all time, and 6th most nominations. He put Jesus in mainstream music when everybody told him it wouldn't work. Then the same people were blaring Jesus Walks. In his spare time, him and his wife have become successful prison reform lobbyists. Oh, and he rocks a MAGA hat sometimes.

And then he interrupted the Grammy's when Taylor Swift won and complained that Beyonce should have won any most Americans have considered him to be a nut case ever since.

It was 2005 when it was George Bush doesn't care about black people at the telethon. Mike Meyers reaction face was hilarious. That's when the right-wing hacks hated him.

2009 it was drunk and making a fool of himself at the Grammys.

2016 it's MAGA hats, while donating to a progressive candidate for Chicago mayor and successfully lobbying for the Music Modernization Act and prison reform.

He's unique to say the least.
