1. I'm really hoping the media doesn't give him a lot of attention and free press

I bet they do

6. It's clearly a craven strategy... and pretty racist in itself.

11. His candidacy is an insult to the intelligence

if everyone, but especially his intended ‘base’ of voters.

5. Every day there's something new to add to the crazy.

I used to try to figure it out. But attempting to apply logic to anything these days is insane.

7. Kanye West would be a better President than Trump

But Joe Biden would be a far better President than either Kanye or Donnie. I plan to vote for Joe this autumn.

Sorry, Mrs. West, I don’t want you to become First Lady, no matter how hot I think you look!

9. Don't give him any media oxygen. It's what he craves.

As of June 29, 2020, 1,112 candidates have filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for president. Throw Kanye in the dust bin with the others.

Of course the media will deem this "newsworthy" simply because he is a celebrity.

10. You you think that, by now, people have realized that the only thing that rappers and reality TV

stars can run is their mouths? We can only hope, I guess.

Not the most reliable source, but it'll do for this one.

19. Follow up: Kanye West No Longer Running for President

Kanye West ends presidential run
https://www.nydailynews.com/snyde/ny-kanye-west-president-run-over-20200715-du4tkxn2uzahbaokyv4zl2ejai-story.html

...

Mercurial rapper Kanye West is reportedly ending the presidential campaign he launched on the Fourth of July.

“He’s out,” political advisor Steve Kramer told New York magazine.

Kramer was brought on to help West get his name on ballots in time for the November election. The “Gold Digger” performer was hoping to challenge Democratic nominee Joe Biden and incumbent Donald Trump, whom West once vehemently supported.

Kramer told New York that there was great enthusiasm behind West’s candidacy early on, but the momentum seems to have come to a halt. West missed the deadline to get on the ballot in several states including Nevada.

...


Analysis: Somebody, possibly a Republican, told him to stop being a schmuck.
