Footage of Kanye West has emerged of him yelling at a young girl who corrected his erratic rant at a campaign rally and it really goes to show the rapper's true colors...
In the most recent and bizarre turn of events for Kanye West...Footage has emerged of him yelling at a young girl who corrected him during his erratic presidential campaign rally that has been making headlines in the last couple of days.
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.
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.
Taking to Twitter on July 4th, 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."

Despite teasing the idea for years...
Nobody thought that he'd actually do it. Also, what ever happened to having an education and experience in politics before you could even think about being president?

Many weren't too impressed over the announcement.
Even though the notorious rapper was deadly serious, people began seriously questioning Kanye's capabilities of running a country.

And despite initially Tweeting his support, even Elon Musk has even voiced his doubts.
Musk was one of the first people to voice his support for the rapper's ambitious project, but he recently backtracked by revealing his doubts by saying he thinks Kanye should wait a few years. "I have not dropped my support for Kanye, although I think 2024 would be better than 2020," he said in a recent interview with Page 6.
@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.
However, his campaign 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.
But, evidently, Kanye doesn't quite see her in that way.Speaking valiantly to the crowd - without a microphone - Kanye said: "Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people."
But this wasn't even the worst part of Kanye's performance...Because when he went on to discuss the topic of abortion, he had a complete break down in front of his audience.
He started by explaining how his mom saved his life due to his father wanting her to get an abortion when she was pregnant."My mom saved my life! My dad wanted to abort me! There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy!" he shouted to the audience.
This is when things took a turn for the worst...Kanye then started tearing up and he had to take a moment to compose himself as the audience started to cheer and shout things such as, "We love you Kanye!".
He then revealed some very private details about his family life..."I almost killed my daughter!" he then screamed as tears streamed down his face. "Everything on my computer went black and white... God said 'If you f*** with my vision I'm gonna f*** with yours."
He disclosed how he and Kim Kardashian discussed the possibility of abortion when she found out she was pregnant with North...
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying...The man is clearly in a lot of pain which arises so much concern about him running for president.
The crowd seemed to be stunned as Kanye sobbed uncontrollably...
And since the rally, people have been expressing their concern for the deeply troubled rapper.

This wasn't a normal campaign rally...This was a full-blown nervous breakdown.
People are seriously concerned...
And many have been expressing their worries for Kim and Kanye's daughter, North - how will she feel when she will understand the words her father spoke of her to the entire world?
