Kanye ‘Ye’ West continued on his path of total self-destruction Thursday night, releasing a series of videos, including a two-minute campaign promo bashing Donald Trump.
The 45-year-old rapper announced last week that he plans to run for president again in 2024.
“The thing Trump was most concerned about [is] I asked him to be my vice president,” Kanye said in one of the videos posted on his newly unlocked Twitter account on Thanksgiving night. “I think that was further down the list of things that caught him off guard.”
“The fact was I went in with intelligence,” he says.
Even after posting the video, Kanye‘His adviser took aim at Trump, no doubt.
Regarding the videos and Yeh’s current relationship with Trump, Milo Yiannopoulos told The Daily Beast: “As someone who knows and is close to several living billionaires, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least to find them laughing at this in close quarters. future. Assuming Mr. Trump isn’t badly injured, of course.
However, he continued: “Tonight Trump World is in crisis.”
“In my opinion, the former president has only himself to blame. This is an overdue bill. President Trump ignored and betrayed everyone who loved him most, from the canceled personalities who helped him get into office to his abused supporters on January 6th. He might want to consider whether he could have done more to acknowledge and support his most loyal fans over the years. Habitual callous ingratitude has a way of catching up with you.”
The campaign teaser is titled “Mar-a-Lago Debate” and comes just two days after West and noted white supremacist Nick Fuentes were spotted outside the former president’s golf club in Florida on Tuesday.
As the video continues, the rapper, who was dropped by Adidas last month after a steady stream of anti-Semitic comments, continues to praise Fuentes.
“Nick Fuentes, unlike so many lawyers and some of the people [Trump] was left in his 2020 campaign, he’s actually a loyalist,” West said in the clip. “When all the lawyers said, ‘forget it, Trump is done,’ there were loyal supporters in the White House, right?” And my question would be, “Why didn’t you release the January 6ers when you had the chance?”
As he talks about advising Trump to “go and get these people that the media tried to overturn,” the video flashes pictures of Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Trump ally Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who was ordered to pay more than $1 billion to the families of Sandy Hook victims for lying about the deaths of their children.
The disgraced shoe designer and musician said Trump sidelined his presidential ambitions with a “you’d be mobster” story in which he claimed to have pardoned former federal inmate Alice Johnson for the West. West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, campaigned hard for Trump to pardon Johnson.
In the same video, Kanye reveals that Trump insulted Kardashian, even though the insult itself was written out. Trump allegedly told Kanye, “you can tell her I said that.”
“I thought that was the mother of my children,” West said.
Kardashian’s mention comes as West faces an internal investigation by Adidas — which ran his Yeezy shoe brand from 2013 until last month — over allegations he harassed former employees. In an anonymous letter received by A rolling stone this week, several former employees alleged that West belittled and harassed them by showing them pornography, including graphic images of Kardashian herself.
In the quirky campaign announcement video, West said Trump wasn’t too happy about his plans for higher office.
“When Trump started yelling at the table telling me I was going to lose, I mean, has that ever worked for anybody in history? I’m like, ‘wait, wait Trump, you’re talking to Ye,'” the Grammy winner said.
The video ends with the intro to his 2016 song “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1′ and title card labeled ‘YE24’.
Of the other two videos released Thursday night, one was made up of news clips about Adidas dropping West, while another featured mostly a monologue by Fox News host Tucker Carlson in support of West.
A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment on West’s allegations Thursday night.
