    But seriously. No. Celebrities with no qualifications should stick to tweeting and using their voice to promote causes they care for, rather than trying to be president. Dick.

    Don't worry, he's missed the filing deadline in nearly every state - he'd need a write-in campaign, which would be pretty unlikely to make much of an impact.

    Well that’s good :)

    I can still see black and young voters wasting/spoiling votes but hopefully not too many :zombie:

    You think he'd get 0 votes? He wouldn't. It's dangerous.

    No I don't think he'd get zero votes, but do think the implication that a vast swathe of black Americans would vote for him just because he's black was a bit silly. :D

    I'll happily (well, miserably if it results in a Trump win) eat humble pie if I'm wrong, but this isn't like a Jill Stein third party candidate - who genuinely had a platform that siphoned off a demographic who weren't enthused by Hilary. It's a publicity stunt by a crazed celebrity, and I think if he even makes the ballot at all the impact will be statistically negligible.

    Not that I don't think it's possible Trumps team put him up to this. They're certainly desperate enough right now.

    And yes, before anyone says it I KNOW, but Trump was a crazed celebrity who ran a fully realised campaign and wound up at the head of one of the two dominant parties in the country.

    And it wasn't just because he's Black. I think you may be underestimating his appeal to/influence on Black youth in particular but let's see :side-eye:

    Personally I think if people are going to go to the trouble of voting, they're likely to have put a bit more thought into it than 'LOL Kanye', especially in this climate. If anything, I think it's the kind of people who thought Trump was a good idea who might be subject to such whims, rather than the ones who will now join a long queue or go to the effort of postal voting to get rid of him.

    It's 2020 hun. Kanye is seen as a joke. He's influential within fashion to a degree but people aren't gonna vote for him because they like his $500 sneakers. To suggest he'll somehow turn young black voters who are 97% Dem to vote Republican/third party is laughable!

    If you're that secure in terms of Biden's prospects that you're happy for him to lose votes - which WILL happen, in whatever quantity - then great!

    Those tweets could obviously be jokes/lies/attention seeking but I really don't think it's something that can be brushed off that easily. At the very least it's a distraction, and the effort to unseat Trump doesn't need that either.

    It'll be interesting to see which celebrities use their platform to publicly renounce him if he really goes through with this/if he gets on the ballot anywhere

    I'm sure Taylor will have a lot to say

    Him getting on the ballot in any swing states could really fuck things up for the Democrats.

    To be fair, as much as Kanye is seen as a joke by many these days, he's also got a ride-or-die cult-like following. (Like his arch-nemesis, Taylor Swift, who could mobilise an army of horse girls if she so wishes).

    He is a God-like genius to a certain brand of music-blogging, Supreme-wearing sneaker fetishists, but the question is: would internet hypelords be particularly likely to have voted for anyone in the first place?

    MARIAH. I love that she generally stays out of politics, but this is one time I wish she'd pipe up for.

    His numbers are really quite bad. Ironically, I think Trump might have been the worst thing AND the best thing for the South. He milked the "Southern Strategy" and racial fear so hard, he ran the tanks dry. A lot of white people aren't buying it anymore. Video footage and social media have finally exposed the police for the abusers that they are, his handling of the Coronavirus has been abysmal and confederate flags/statues continue to fall.

    I think he might've inadvertently helped the South self-reflect, by showing them the worst in themselves.

    What a fascinating turn of events.

    I mean I'm not saying that he definitely won't win again. I'm just saying that even if he does, it'll be a much narrower win and Republicans would have hopefully learned something.

    Republicans Against Trump are going in much harder than the Democrats already.

    I'm inclined to think the Kanye campaign is last minute noise engineered by the Trump campaign to distract. I'm not sure whether it will ultimately boil down to anything, particularly if he can't get on the ballot.

    In what the magazine described as "four rambling hours of interviews", West said he would decide in the next 30 days whether to definitely stand in November's presidential election.

    I mean, it could all amount to a big load of absolutely nothing (for 2020 at least)

    Sounds like he’ll split the Trump vote if anything.

    Judging by the last paragraph of that article VoR posted, it could all be a whole load of nothing simply to promote the release of Kanye’s next album.

    Trump also gave Kanye a loan of up to $5 million via the Paycheck Protection Program for his Yeezy brand.

    Trump also gave the Church of Scientology a bunch of money too.
