The questions are:

  1. Who will vote for Kanye West?
  2. Which other candidate will this then hurt?

I can’t for the life of me understand why he is running for President. Oh, wait a minute, yes I can. He’s at least two sandwiches short of a picnic; he’s at least a spanner short of a toolbox. I mean, who the hell is advising him?

West’s campaign advisers are his wife, the TV star Kim Kardashian-West, and the Tesla founder Elon Musk, both of whom have endorsed him. Speaking about Musk, West said: “I proposed to him to be the head of our space programme.” [source]

Aah. How the mighty have fallen. Not on hard times, though. That aside, what else have we learnt today?

Regarding the development of a Covid-19 vaccine, he said: “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralysed … So when they say the way we’re going to fix covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast.

“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”

West added that Covid-19 was “all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”…

He said he intended to end police brutality, but added that “the police are people, too”. He said he opposes the death penalty and is “pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible”.

On education, he said he wanted to reinstate “the fear and love of God in all schools and organisations” and criticised Black History Month as “torture porn”. He added: “The schools, the infrastructure, was made for us to not truly be all we can be, but to be just good enough to work for the corporations that designed the school systems. We’re tearing that up … we’re not going to tear up the constitution; what we will do is amend.”

Twaddle. Absolute piffle and codswallop.

As for answering whose campaign it will harm, it could well be Biden’s because, let’s face it, Biden will take the large majority of black votes. It makes you wonder if he has been put up to this by some canny Republicans, or Trump himself?

[I got so hurt by being accused of serially attacking Trump by some commenters that I thought I’d pick on someone else. Not much is going on over here since Johnson is merely maintaining his useless numpty label and doing the square root of bugger all to disabuse the public of this.]
