Kanye West is kind of, sort of, running for President. The rapper has already missed to deadline to appear on the ballot in a number of states. He also had a disastrous campaign rally where he slammed Harriet Tubman and talked about trying to abort his daughter.
Things perked up for the West campaign this week when he attempted to get on more ballots with the GOP’s help. The music superstar also admitted that he’s basically only running to hurt Joe Biden. Kanye has a fan in Tucker Carlson who said last night that he wishes more Republicans sounded like West.
The Fox host gushed over the rapper, saying, “On core conservative issues… no one with a national platform has been more honest or sincere or effective than Kanye West has been, maybe in generations. You start to ask yourself why aren’t there any elected Republicans who sound like that.”
Carlson also claimed that Liberals are scared of West. “These people are actually worried, but they’re not worried about Kanye West or his family, they don’t care about them,” he continued. “They’re worried about the threat that West poses to Democratic party orthodoxy and therefore to their power. They don’t say that out loud, they’re liars, so instead they continue to play the role of psychiatric nurse.”
The host ended his rant, “We’re not pretending to be mental health experts and maybe Kanye west is crazy. We don’t know. But it’s also true — and wise people know this — that in a time like this, a lunatic time, sometimes it is only the crazy people who can see the world clearly.”
