@quickymart:

 

I had no idea they were buddies? In any case, I doubt Kanye has much of a chance, and the primaries have closed already anyway.

 

 

The thing is if black voters got with him and vote less on Bidden. Even if he doesn't have a chance to win, he does have a chance to change the balance to Trump.

 

 

 

@nathan:

I think it's 2024 he announced not 2020

 

 

He clearly made it about 2020.

Indeed.

 

 

Maybe he and his mate Musk can be the first President and VP of Mars. 

 

Maybe they dreamed up this idea together - when a little bit high.

In case you're wondering about the sort of people that would vote for someone like Trump:

 

Militias flocked to Gettysburg to foil a supposed antifa flag burning, an apparent hoax created on social media

 

Conman, meet target audience.

What's the one thing the lying loser could do to try to save his lying backside?  My guess is to rush approval of an not properly tested C-19 vaccine, claiming he's conquered a deep state conspiracy by Democrats and RINOs in the FDA etc to hold up release of the vaccine to hurt him.

 

Remind me in November if this prediction comes true.

Knowing Trump, his family will be involved or profiting from it in some way.

 

Most presidents once they finish start on the speaking circuit. Who the hell would pay to listen to Trump? I can't even stand listening to him for free - damned if I'm going to pay anything to hear him talk.

White supremacists, militias, conspiracy-theorists, neo-nazis, Fox news watchers, he's got a huge audience of adoring fans. Something like the Total War speech, with a few changes to substitute antifa for Jews and the like, and his followers will be shelling out to hear it.

True, some would lap up anything he says (some people do already). But he hasn't done much to expand his base since 2016.

Clear?  There is nothing clear about a cryptic tweet that doesn't actually say he's running in 2020.

 

Kanye has previously announced he's running in 2024.

Kanye is not running whatsoever.  This is a publicity stunt for his upcoming album.

 

There are 3 possibilities to run - Dem, Rep, Independent.

 

The first 2 ships have sailed.

 

It costs about $US10MM to get your name on the ballot in all 50 states, - Kanye hasn't and isn't spending that money, and the ship has already sailed for most of those states already anyway.

 

This is a publicity stunt for his upcoming album.

There's a hashtag #2020Vision on the tweet.  Seems pretty clear to me - and I'm really not great with numbers.

 

Sure it's a publicity stunt - Musk, Trump, "Ye". Navigators of the post-fact world, where you can say the most stupid things to gain attention - and get praised for it.

Salon: Trump to Black Americans: "If you don't understand your history, you will go back to it again"

"We have to remember the heritage and the culture of our country," the president says of Confederate monuments

President Donald Trump told "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade in a Sunday evening special that his message to Black Americans demanding the removal of monuments honoring slave owners is this: "You have to learn" about "your history."...
My message is that we have a great country: We have the greatest country on Earth. We have a heritage. We have a history and we should learn from the history. And if you don't understand your history, you will go back to it again. You will go right back to it. You have to learn.

Think of it: You take away that whole era, and you're going to go back to it sometime. People won't know about it. They're going to forget about it. It's OK.

...The president went on to moon over the aesthetic beauty of some of the disputed statues, a great many of which feature a prominent uniformed Confederate war figure bearing a sword astride a horse.

...During an appearance last week on Fox News, Sean Hannity asked Trump what his priorities would be if he were re-elected to a second term. The president did not name one.

OMG I can not believe I am going to say this, but I agree with those words.

 

Once you start destroying or rewriting history, you are bound to repeat it. You must learn from history, the good and the bad. Once you start destroying books, art & records, you are on the slippery slope of failure and destruction. Ask and review the past of any despotic country and you will see the truth in this.

 

"Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it."
Winston Churchill

 

“Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it. Yet those who do study history are doomed to standby helplessly while everyone else repeats it.”

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.
