Kanye West's campaign rally over the weekend has left fans a little concerned after he seemingly suffered a breakdown while discussing his personal experiences with abortion.
And now, a source has claimed that the Kardashians are not happy with his shocking claims...
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...
@donwinslow @kanyewest @kanyewest you are never going to be president. Ever. Period.— Michael Ugwueke (@Michael Ugwueke)1595207811.0
But, despite people's doubts, last night Kanye hosted his first campaign rally...And his behavior left a lot of people feeling alarmed, including the infamous Kardashian family.
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.
However, his campaign proved to be a somewhat 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, a prominent figure in the anti-slavery movement.But, evidently, Kanye doesn't see her this way. Speaking valiantly to the crowd - without a microphone - he said: "Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people."
People were, quite understandably, concerned by the footage...

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 suddenly dissolved into tears, prompting him 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 then blurted out that Kim might divorce him for revealing their abortion discussion...But, even if she did, he would still thank her for having North.
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying...And it made for an incredibly difficult watch. 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...

This wasn't a normal campaign rally...This was a full-blown nervous breakdown.
It's terribly sad to see Kanye in this bad state...
