In spite of conceding defeat, his controversial run went a lot better than many thought it would…
But we’re safe in saying that it probably wasn’t something that Kanye West wasn’t expecting!
It turns out that to be president of the United States, you need a lot of experience…
And it seems that the rapper learned this the hard way today.
Although a surprising number of people still turned out to vote for the rapper.
Kanye West has never been afraid of letting his opinion be known and, throughout the years, he has been in and out of the headlines for his strange and eye-opening antics.
On July 4th, he suddenly revealed that he would be running for president.
Back in 2018, Kanye, who is an avid Trump supporter, sat down with the president in the Oval Office where he proclaimed his support and declared Trump a “hero” in a bizarre, rambling televised monologue that spawned myriad parodies.
Taking to Twitter, Kanye wrote:
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020Vision.”
Nobody ever thought that he’d actually do it.
Also, what happened to having an education and experience in politics before you could even think about being president?
And in July, he hosted his first-ever campaign rally.
Kanye, who was clad in a bullet-proof vest with the numbers “2020” shaved into his head, threw his rally in Charleston, South Carolina, where he seemed to whip up various policy decisions right there on the spot… including humiliating his wife and family in the process!
And, even though it is more than likely that Kim did not give her permission to Kanye to disclose this private information, he didn’t seem to care.
“Then she said, ‘I’m pregnant.’ I said, ‘Yes!’ Then I said, ‘No.’ I gotta tell you what was in my mind. She was crying. She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby’s gone.”
But, again, he didn’t seem to care.
“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. She stood up, and she protected that child.”
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying…
The man was clearly in a lot of pain which arose a lot of concern about him running for president.
And she posted a lengthy Instagram story explaining how difficult it is to live with bipolar disorder and how she will do anything to protect her husband and her children.
But the one thing about Kim’s statement that really stood out for fans was when she described her family as being “powerless” against Kanye.
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” she said.
So his supporters weren’t surprised when he stepped down from his campaign and took some time to reconcile with his family.
And it was replaced with the firey face-off between President Trump and Joe Biden.
Kanye’s campaign had been reignited… and it was revealed in the last week that he’s back in the running for being president!
But the rapper still took to Twitter to share a photo of a ballot card with his name scrawled under the write-in section, along with the caption:
“Friends writing me in.”
But it turns out that some people have actually been voting for Kanye…
Including Kanye himself.
All while revealing that it was the “first vote of his life.”
And have dubbed it a “wasted vote.”
And others have urged for Americans to not vote for the musician.
As this Twitter user explained, it’s “not funny”, and it’s “not a joke.”
But according to lots of people…
Voting for Kanye seemed like a reasonable choice.
50,000 people, to be precise.
It simply wasn’t enough for the famed rapper as he himself has conceded defeat in the 2020 presidential election.
“WELP KANYE 2024” he simply wrote, alongside a picture of himself and the election map.
It’s been confirmed the rapper did win a shocking 60,000 votes – at least.
