The fake news was enraged by another announcement over Independence Weekend: billionaire rapper Kanye West’s announcement of his intention to run for President in 2020. Kanye’s tweet set off an immediate firestorm on social media, snapping up instant support from other business moguls and popular celebrities with massive followings.
Given Kanye’s vocal support of Trump and open criticism of Obama, it didn’t take the fake news long to begin furiously attacking Kanye for his indirect challenge to Biden. In his commentary on Obama, Kanye attracted fake news fury for revealing what angers them the most of all: the truth.

Kanye West further enraged the fake news with an interview with GQ in April 2020, where he didn’t bother to hold back his disgust at being told how to think and how to vote.
“Both my parents were freedom fighters, and they used to drink from fountains they were told they couldn’t drink from, and they used to sit in restaurants where they were told they couldn’t eat from. They didn’t fight for me to be told by white people which white person I can vote on …
“I didn’t intend for anything except to speak my mind and express how I felt. I have no intention other than to be free, and I don’t intend to be free—I just simply am” [Source: GQ]
Since the media appears so concerned with the BLM movement, in spite of it killing their own across the United States, shouldn’t the thoughts of prominent black figures, such as Kanye West, also matter?
Apparently, the only lives that matter are those of people who live and think exactly as the fascist Democrats instruct them, regardless of their racial background. Then again, the media hate that drenched Ben Carson, who endured a vastly more difficult background than Obama, also proved its utter hypocrisy in truly caring about empowering racial minorities in the United States.
In the case of Kanye, he will likely never experience unbiased treatment again in the fake news media given that he supported Trump while simultaneously criticizing Obama.
“I buy real estate. It’s better now than when Obama was in office. They don’t teach you in school about buying property. They teach you how to become somebody’s property …
I’m definitely voting this time. And we know who I’m voting on. And I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over … What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion!” [Source: GQ]
In light of this interview from just two months ago, Kanye’s seemingly sudden Presidential bid for 2020 shocked observers over the July 4 weekend.

When reviewing the above tweet, it’s important to note what Kanye didn’t say: Unlike Bloomberg, Kanye didn’t say he was running to beat Trump; he simply announced that he was running. Furthermore, Kanye will be infinitely more likely to poach potential Biden voters, including the perma-enraged Sanders supporters and the black vote that Biden assumes is almost entirely his for the taking.
Kanye was also buoyed by endorsements from tech tycoon Elon Musk and his wife, Kim Kardashian. Musk voiced his “full support” within mere minutes of Kanye’s announcement. Kardashian also retweeted Kanye’s announcement with an emoji of the American flag.
Musk has made headlines in recent months for his very public battle with communist California politicians. He began indicating a strong preference for business regulations in Texas over California, as noted by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
“I’ve had the opportunity to talk to Elon Musk, and he’s genuinely interested in Texas and genuinely frustrated with California. We’ve just got to wait and see how things play out,” Abbott said [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Furthermore, in contrast to egomaniac Bloomberg, who wasted $1 billion on a vanity presidential run that never got off the ground, Kanye didn’t have to spend a single penny to receive favorable promotion to over 130 million social media users, between his, Musk’s, and Kardashian’s respective followings.
While the astute observer realized that Kanye could potentially become the Ross Perot of 2020, it took the fake news close to 48 hours to reach this possible assessment, which is evident from their increasing aggression towards Kanye West.
Furthermore, betting firms have already determined that Kanye’s a clear threat to Biden, given analyst observations.

In the morning after July 4, Bet Online’s inclusion of Kanye West resulted in Biden’s chances plummeting every further. Most importantly, Trump’s odds of winning improved upon Kanye’s announcement.
The fake news media is probably more enraged over this quantitate assessment, which bring their polls into serious question, than they are over Trump’s message of unification at Mount Rushmore. The 2020 election has just become even more interesting.
