Kanye West's presidential first-ever campaign rally over the weekend has left fans feeling extremely worried for him after he had a full break down in front of his audience while admitting a very intimate secret from his past. It was all a bit of a mess, but the messiest statement he could have made was saying that "everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars..."
Read on for the shocking footage as well as the reasons as to why he wants to make this happen...
Ladies and Gentlemen, this man could potentially be our future president.Earlier this month, Kanye West shocked the world when he announced - via Twitter, of course - that he would be running for president.
At first, people weren't too convinced with his announcement...

But, despite people's doubts, last night Kanye hosted his first campaign rally...And his behavior left a lot of people feeling alarmed, to say the least.
Now, Kanye West isn't usually known for his politics.Since the early 2000s, Kanye has become one of the biggest names in the music industry.
The rapper has gone on to release numerous albums...These include My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010, Yeezus in 2013, The Life of Pablo in 2016, Ye in 2018, and Jesus is King in 2019.
And his music isn't the only reason he's so famous...
What do you think of this picture for America's next First Family?
Where do we begin when it comes to Kanye's erratic behavior?Kanye 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.
But there was a heartbreaking explanation for these particular behaviors...Last year, Kanye opened up about his battles with mental illness. He revealed that, in 2014, he was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, 2 years before he suffered his highly-publicized nervous breakdown in 2016, which was likely triggered by the anniversary of his mother's death.
Kanye has come a long way in his battle...And he has been using his platform to help break down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
But his most recent announcement has stirred up the concern once again...Because, out of the blue, he revealed that he would be running for president.
Now, in the last couple of years, Kanye has been dabbling in and out of the world of American politics.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.
But, this month, he took things to the next level.

But this is America 2020, and anything can happen...Granted you have millions of dollars and a handful of powerful friends, that is.
However, the rest of us weren't too impressed.

And despite initially Tweeting his support, even Elon Musk has even voiced his doubts.
@kanyewest You have my full support!— Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)1593909921.0
But, regardless of the haters, the rapper has been deadset on his "2020 vision"...And, over the weekend, he hosted his first-ever campaign rally.
His first campaign rally proved to be an extremely chaotic and alarming experience.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.
The rapper's first controversial moment was in regard to his views on slavery.Kanye decided to discuss slavery, which is already dangerous waters for the rapper after he insisted that being enslaved was "a choice" back in 2018.
During his speech, he decided to tarnish the name of Harriet Tubman.Now, Harriet Tubman was born into slavery but managed to break free and went on to lead dozens, and potentially hundreds of other slaves to freedom.
Tubman has become a prominent figure in the abolishment of slavery...
Your reminder that Harriet Tubman should be on the $20 bill, in part because she led dozens—if not hundreds—of slaves to freedom.— Meena Harris (@Meena Harris)1595211869.0
