It would be pretty embarrassing to be running for President and expose yourself as if having a clue about what’s actually going on in the world to millions of people on social media, don’t you think? I know that you’re wondering if I’m talking about Biden or Trump and really it could have been, but no, today we’re talking about Kanye West.
Kanye excitedly tweeted a video late Tuesday night saying to get the West Wing ready because he was polling so well in Kentucky.
GET THE WEST WING READY !!! … this is how I felt when I saw that Kentucky pole result pic.twitter.com/k9e87MGKZL

There’s just one little problem, and you may have spotted it: that poll is obviously fake. The most recent legitimate polls of Kentucky show Donald Trump at 58% and Joe Biden at 40%, leaving just 2% undecided or voting for a third party, whereas the poll Kanye saw had Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen winning with 36%.
It doesn’t even look like a poll, because what you’re actually seeing is an example election night results page used for testing and with clearly fake results so people don’t claim that “the fix is in” before election night even though we pretty much know who is going to win Kentucky right now anyway.
What I’m saying is you’d have to be completely clueless about politics and a giant narcissist to think you were doing better in Kentucky than both major party candidates combined.
You might think that this would be embarrassing and Kanye would have been like “oh my bad, I thought these were real poll results, I just got a little overexcited and didn’t really think about it,” but only if you had never heard of Kanye West before. What Kanye actually did was continue his victory lap all night.
PEOLE TRIED TO TALK ME OUT OF RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT… NEVER LET WEAK CONTROLLING PEOPLE KILL YOUR SPIRIT

And into the morning, Kanye retweeted this even after Twitter added a disclaimer explaining it wasn’t poll results.

There’s no such thing as a “precinct voting poll.” Election results are reported by precinct after each polling location closes and tallies their votes.
Kanye did eventually switch to tweeting about the conflict in Armenia, something important to his wife, who is Armenian. It’s a much better use of his platform.
The post Kanye West Spent All Night Celebrating a Fake Poll appeared first on The Blemish.
There’s a podcast called Pod Save America, run by some of the most insufferable assholes to come out of the lower tiers of the Obama administration. You might have heard of it when your insane, MSNBC-addicted uncle had a fight with your insane, Fox News-addicted aunt at Thanksgiving last year. I don’t recommend it.
I only bring it up because it shows that Kanye West did not think of the phrase “God Save America,” which he trying to trademark and sell on clothes. God save America is a phrase in common enough use that there is are parodies of it.
Celebrities try to trademark things all the time. Cardi B tried to trademark “Okurrr” and was denied while President Trump failed to secure a trademark on “You’re Fired” back when he was a TV game show host. Paris Hilton successfully trademarked the phrase “That’s Hot,” though, so anything can happen. Under that logic, she probably could have trademarked vocal fry and sued the Red Scare podcast, which is greatly superior to Pod Save America, right out of existence.
Look, it should be obvious now that Kanye’s run for President is just Kanye trying to sell more clothes. That’s it. His entire presidential campaign is a brand-building exercise.
It’s not even like Kanye is running to bring attention to some sort of issue. Have you heard how empty is his campaign rhetoric is? It’s like that time Lois ran for mayor on Family Guy.
Of course, Kanye isn’t actually hurting anything by running for President; the idea that he’ll somehow hurt Joe Biden by running is absurd, no one who was going to vote for Joe Biden is going to be swayed to vote for Kanye West instead. He’s just wasting an opportunity to do real good for his community and the entire country on a vanity tour to sell merchandise, that’s all.
I don’t have a problem with third-party candidates. I’ve actually voted for third-Party candidates in fully half the presidential elections I’ve voted in. That does not change the fact that Kanye West should be nowhere near the office of President of the United States, he hasn’t had a good political opinion since September 2nd, 2005.
Kanye doesn’t sound like that now, he just repeats dumbass talking points he got from idiots like Candice Owens.
Black babies lives matter 1000 black children are aborted daily
— ye (@kanyewest) October 12, 2020
Yeah, there’s a reason I’m not voting for him. Despite the fact that Kanye’s run for President is most charitably described as an attempt to sell Kanye for President merch, he’s gone ahead and produced a campaign ad.
— ye (@kanyewest) October 12, 2020
You usually have to go to a brand-name Republican for that level of Christofascism barely hidden beneath empty platitudes.
I’m not sure what Kanye is actually trying to accomplish with this run for President; candidates like Jo Jorgensen and Howie Hawkins are trying to build a viable opposition to the two parties we currently have, so while they don’t expect to win and the people voting for them don’t expect them to win, but there’s a purpose to their candidacy. Kanye isn’t trying to build anything except his own personal brand.

Someone should have told Kanye West he didn’t have to run for president to sell ugly clothing before he imploded his marriage on the campaign trail. Hell, you’d think that one look at his shoes would tell him people will pay way too much money for the dumbest looking clothing I’ve ever seen in my entire life as long as Kanye puts his name on it.
TMZ reports Kanye has rolled out his campaign’s merch shop just in time for Donald Trump’s dexamethasone buzz to wear off.
The post Kanye West’s Run for President Has Reached Its Logical Conclusion: Overpriced Shitty Merch appeared first on The Blemish.
The past few months have made a few things exceptionally clear, specifically that Kim Kardashian is a really good person and Kanye West is… not.
You may recall how Kanye decided to run for President and used his campaign to air all his dirty laundry with his wife Kim Kardashian, who we now know has a heart as big as her ass.
Page Six reported on exactly what Kim did for Kanye when he had COVID, and I absolutely wouldn’t hold a campaign rally and tell everyone she considered an abortion if she did that for me.
“Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on,” she told Grazia magazine. “It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.”
The star said that she had to change his sheets and help him get out of bed “when he wasn’t feeling good.”
“It was a challenge because it was so unknown,” she said. “Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”
I don’t even remember hearing about Kanye getting COVID, that’s how crazy he was acting all summer. He was acting more outlandish than a global pandemic. That’s impressive even for Kanye West.
The post Kim Kardashian Nursed Kanye Through COVID Before He Called Her a White Supremacist on Social Media appeared first on The Blemish.
Forget anonymous sources for a moment.
Who knows how reliable they can be or if they even exist, right?
Late last week, however, Kim Kardashian herself gave fans a reason to think her marriage to Kanye West might be nearing its end, following weeks and weeks' worth of similar speculation.
"A year from now, everything you’re stressing about won’t mean a thing," Kim relayed via Instagram, passing along a quote that certainly seems pertinent to her ongoing situation.
"Be thankful, smile more, spend more time with family and don’t stress the small things," she added.
"This is our one chance at life. Don’t let anyone or anything take away your happiness."
Pretty much impossible not to analyze these words and the meaning/intention behind them, you know?
Since around the middle point of this summer, Kanye has been campaigning for President by ranting and raving his way through speeches and social media posts.
He first raised a billion eyebrows when he admitted on stage that he wanted to abort his daughter, North, after Kim told him she was pregnant many years ago.
Following this revelation, the artist claimed on Twitter that he had been trying to divorce the mother of his four children -- and also that Kris Jenner was a white supremacist.
Both personal and truly insane stuff.
Kim responded by issuing a lengthy statement that asked people to have "compassion" for her husband's bipolar disorder.
It basically admitted Kanye was suffering a mental breakdown.
She hasn't said a lot about their relationship since, but numerous reports have come out about Kardashian considering a divorce from Kanye.
“Kim has the whole divorce planned out, but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest episode," an insider told Page Six, for example, in September.
This brings us back to the Instagram Stories quote above.
A year from now, everything you’re stressing about won’t mean a thing.
Might Kim be stressing about her romance and reminding herself that making a clean split would be painful now... but pay dividends down the line when Kanye is out of her life for good?
Be thankful, smile more, spend more time with family and don’t stress the small things. This is our one chance at life.
Kardashian may be telling herself here that she doesn't get a do-over.
Life moves too quickly and she needs to make the most of it and, let's face it, does that include being the wife to an unstable narcissist?
Don’t let anyone or anything take away your happiness.
This concluding line doesn't even need an explanation, does it? How many content spouses would write such a thing?
Kardashian, meanwhile, dropped this gigantiic hint in the wake of close pal Jonathan Cheban appearing on The Wendy Williams Show -- and using the past tense to describe Kim and Kanye's relationship.
It is what it is. They were good. He's Kanye, the guy is a genius," Cheban told the host.
"Geniuses go through things all the time. His brain is on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I could never be able to think and go like he does. It's overwhelming.
"There's got to be a certain point where things go AWOL and then you get back."
Perhaps. Perhaps that's how a genius works and acts.
But think about it:
Would you want to be married to this kind of person?
Back in July, it seemed certain that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were headed for divorce.
During a severe bipolar episode, Kanye publicly accused Kim of of cheating on him and threatened to divorce her.
It seemed like the sort of scandal the couple wouldn't be able to come back from.
But here we are, just a few months later, and the Wests are back to doing what they do best:
Kim is looking hot on social media, and Kanye is telling her how to dress.
Yeah, that last part is a little weird, but hey -- it seems to work for them!
Anyway, we think it's safe to say Kim ad Kanye have ironed out their differences -- for the time being at least.
But these two don't celebrate a reconciliation by snacking down on unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden like a couple of peasants.
No, they collab on a fashion shoot and post the results on Twitter!
They've done this sort of thing before, but the Wests latest shoot was especially well-received.
For one thing, people just seemed happy to see some photo evidence that Kim and Kanye are back together.
On top of that, it seems that at first glance, a lot of folks thought these were nude photos of Kim.
Alas, that's not the case.
Kim is wearing a some sort of one-piece thing that roughly matches her complexion, and the sepia-toned photos do sort of trick your brain into thinking you're looking at something that's NSFW.
"You’re so beautiful OMG," one fan commented on the provocative pics.
"Kanye is so talented," another tweeted.
"So Ye is a genius behind the camera too," a third chimed in.
Someone who knows more about photography than we do would have to confirm or deny that last statement.
Seems to us that the subject of the photos is doing most of the work here.
But hey, we're sure both parties worked together to bring this nude illusion to Twitter.
(Yes, Kim posted the photos on Twitter instead of Instagram, which is a bit strange. Maybe she figured the folks on that hell site needed a break from their constant political quarrelling.)
Anyway, the news that Kim is giving Kanye his 475th second chance doesn't come as too much of a shock.
After all, while he was slandering her and calling Kris Jenner a white supremacist, she was apolgizing on his behalf and explaining to the world that he's a victim of a horrible mental illness.
"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the personal loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is highlighted by his bipolar disorder," Kim wrote on Instagram at the time.
"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions
Well, Kim might have a son named Saint, but it seems she's the one with the biblical-caliber patience in this family!
In recent weeks, rumors that Kim Kardashian is preparing to divorce Kanye West have been circulating non-stop.
Insiders say the incident in which West peed on a Grammy and railed against some of the brands and industry titans who helped to make him famous was the final straw for Kim, who is now just waiting for the right time to break the news to her troubled husband.
Those who know the couple best say that Kim and Kanye have been living separate lives since before the pandemic, and far from bringing them closer together, the global health crisis has only exacerbated the divisions between them.
Kim, of course, has yet to comment on the situation, but many fans believe her recent social media updates speak volumes about her mental state.
The latest to spark concern among fans is a post from Kim's Instagram Story that appeared in the wee hours of Monday morning.
It seems the ultra-busy 39-year-old was unable to get much sleep, so she turned to her followers for advice.
"Do I get a head start on my workout or try to go back to sleep?" Kim asked.
Shortly thereafter, she revealed that she had decided to do some studying.
As you may recall, Kim is working to become a lawyer, opting for a four-year internship in a San Francisco law firm over traditional law school.
Some might say the mother of four has a bit too much on her plate these days, but Kim doesn't seem like the type to slow down when the going gets rough.
After her study session, she joined Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson for an early morning workout.
She labeled a pic of the team's sneakers with "early bird special."
And where was Kanye during Kim's bout of insomnia?
Well, his whereabouts are currently unknown, but he's believed to be holed up at his ranch in Wyoming.
Insiders tell Page Six in no uncertain terms that Kim is still "planning to divorce" Kanye.
"Kim has the whole divorce planned out but she's waiting for him to get through his latest episode," says one source close to the situation.
The informant adds that Kim is "deeply disappointed" in her troubled husband as he "refuses to stick to his care plan," which was designed by his medical team to control the symptoms of his bipolar disorder.
"It’s a vicious cycle that Kim has had success at interrupting successfully for months at a time," the source says.
"It's the same thing over and over and over again."
The insider adds that Kim feels awful about taking steps toward ending her marriage while Kanye is enduring a mental health episode, but she feels she has no choice, as she has to make the health and safety of her children her top priority.
"He's on very thin ice with her right now, and she's truly trying to decide what to do to protect the kids, but also her own sanity," says the insider.
"The whole thing is discouraging and difficult for her."
Sources say it's not a matter of if Kim will leave her husband, but when.
Her biggest concerns reportedly have nothing to do with money and property, and everything to do with Kanye's mental health and the welfare of her children.
Insiders say Kim is hoping that the couple's iron-clad prenup will lead to a smooth and uncontested divorce.
But knowing Kanye's penchant for high drama, we wouldn't be surprised if this situation turns ugly in a hurry.
Running for President takes a lot of thought and preparation, and for good reason; getting on the ballot is nothing compared to actually being President. It’s not generally something you can just decide to do at the last minute with no plan and no idea how to go about getting on the ballot.
You know, unless you have more money than brains. If you’re a rich idiot, you can just find some consultant to do all the work for you. This is true of pretty much anything, not just running for President.
So how much did Kanye West spend after deciding he wanted to be president at the last second, after the deadline had passed to get on the ballot in a large number of states? According to TMZ, over $3 million.
Kanye’s Presidential run is a great example of why we need a government to provide basic social services instead of relying on the largess of the rich. Kanye could have done a lot of good for a lot of people in any number of ways with the money he spent on a Presidential run that will ultimately amount to nothing. Kanye appears to care a lot of issues and he has the phone number of the President of the United States already, his time and money would be much better spent addressing those issues by working with groups focused on those issues. But those don’t buy the kinds of headlines “Kanye West running for President” buys.

Seems a bit extreme, but okay. I thought for sure he was going to get it on those ridiculous shoes he designed for a second.
Kanye has been on a tear on Twitter today. He also doxxed “Randall Forbes,” who I assume is Randall Lane, the editor and chief content officer of Forbes magazine.
Kanye is almost certainly going to get banned for that one, I posted a redacted screenshot but West didn’t redact the number.
Kanye also posted the full text of his contracts with Universal, which he did one page at a time over like 90 tweets because he couldn’t get the PDF to upload. Just link to a Google drive, Ye!
THIS MOMENT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR GOOD … I FEEL SO HUMBLED AND BLESSED THAT GOD HAS PUT ME IN A STRONG ENOUGH POSITION TO DO THIS … EVERYONE KEEP PRAYING … ITS WORKING … I AM ON MY KNEES THIS MORNING

Kanye apparently thinks he’s getting taken by Universal, because he said he was “going to change the music industry for good” and asked “every lawyer in the world to look at these.”
I have no idea what I’m seeing but I could have told you that music contracts favor the labels without seeing West’s contract. It’s not exactly a secret that the money made by music goes to producers and executives and now c-suite executives at Spotify instead of the music acts themselves. Like, Master P has an estimated net worth of almost a billion dollars, have you ever bought a Master P album? Can you name one of his hit songs? Hum a few bars of anything by Master P?
He also posted a picture of a hoodie that reads “Kim is my lawyer.”

Might want to dig up her dad for this one, Ye, he got OJ off, after all. And rumor has it that was after OJ got Kris Jenner off.
I love Kanye West in the same way that I love David Brent from The Office: he is a complete and utter asshole and watching him publicly embarrass himself is satisfying on an almost spiritual level.
Kanye is all about Jesus these days, presumably because he hasn’t figured out that he himself isn’t Jesus. A common question for Kanye is basically a more tactful version of “Kanye, you’re a Christian, how do you reconcile that with the fact that you’re also a huge asshole?” as if every televangelist doesn’t exist.
With all that in mind, here’s how Kanye explained his decision to rush the stage when Taylor Swift was accepting the VMA for ‘You Belong with Me’ and say she didn’t deserve it, via Uproxx:
If God didn’t want me to run on stage and say, “Beyonce had the best video,” He wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I would’ve been sitting in the back. He wouldn’t have made it the first award. And [He] wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous of an idea ’cause I had never heard of this person before that night. And “Single Ladies” is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time… And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show ’cause it was a set-up!
Yes, that’s right, God wanted Kanye to cause trouble. It was definitely God and not some MTV intern trying to stir up drama and boost ratings.

If you ever travel to the Middle East, something to keep in mind is that people in the Middle East hate feet. It’s like an entire nation of anti-Tarantinos. That’s why that guy threw his shoes at George W Bush; it’s a massive insult to show the bottom of your shoes to someone.
You know what else is a massive insult to people in the Middle East, then? Naming your shoes after important religious figures in Islam.
This is a lesson Kanye West is learning because he’s super Jesusey now and Islam and Christianity share a lot of mythology. Kanye decided to name his new shoes after some biblical angels, because that’s what Jesus would do. He picked the names Israfil and Asriel, Israfil being one of the four archangels and Asriel being the cat from The Smurfs.
The Sun reports that Muslims are making their displeasure known.
Nazeem Islam posted: “It is not acceptable to make a mockery out of the beliefs of others.”
And another fan wrote: “If you had any respect for your Muslim fans, you would change the name.”
Something tells me Kanye doesn’t care if he offends Muslims because Kanye is incapable of caring about anything past the tip of his nose.

Regardless of whether or not Kanye West is running for president, the rapper's mental state is currently under about as much scrutiny as the intellectual faculties of the two men who are most likely to be elected to the White House in November.
The reason for this is simple and serious:
Kanye suffered a bipolar breakdown in July that saw him publicly lashing out at his wife and in-laws, all of whom supported him unconditionally during previous such episodes.
All of this came on the heels of a very different set of concerns about West's health.
In a recent interview, Kanye revealed that he had contracted COVID-19 and claimed that he was able to cure himself through the power of positive thinking.
Despite enduring two deeply troubling crises in a row -- both of which might be the result of his ongoing struggle with mental illness -- Kanye decided to host one of his "Sunday Service" gospel concerts in Wyoming this week.
His wife, Kim Kardashian, was the first to tease the performance, tweeting, “Guess what’s back?!?!”
Amid concerns about the massive crew that participated in Kanye's comeback show, West dubiously claimed that everyone involved was kept safe from the 'rona.
“We would like to thank our staff for making sure all Covid safety guidelines were followed today during Sunday Service at our West Mountains family ranch in Wyoming,” he tweeted.
“We are beyond blessed to be able to share the love of Christ through worship #SUNDAYSERVICEISBACK.”
Despite Kanye's reassurances, fans were understandably concerned about his ability to ensure the safety of his staff.
After all, this is a guy who claims to have cured his own case of the virus by harnessing the power of brain magic.
So maybe his understanding of infectious diseases is a little less than complete.
Seeing the backlash against her husband -- who might want to consider taking a break from the public eye for a few months -- Kim decided to once again go to bat for the man who was accusing her of cheating with Meek Mill and threatening to divorce her just a few weeks ago.
"For anyone wondering, Kanye’s team took every precaution to ensure the choir’s health and safety which is always top priority," Kim tweeted.
"It was filmed today without an audience. The music will be shared soon for anyone who could use something uplifting."
Hopefully, someone informed Kim that checking into an in-patient treatment facility would be the most uplifting thing that Kanye could do at this point.
Anyway, her defense of her husband's latest attempt to rebrand himself as the 21st century's answer to Billy Graham serves as further evidence that Kim is planning to stand by her man.
Insiders close to the couple claim that Kim and Kanye "fixed" their marriage during a recent vacation in Colorado.
That's great and all, but it would be even better if Kanye found some sort of therapeutic activity that didn't involve risking the health of dozens or hundreds of people.
Maybe dude could take up knitting or something. Just sayin'.
Kanye West is polling at 2% among registered voters in his run for president. This might seem bad but keep in mind that he’s not actually running for President and he’s only on the ballot in three states so it doesn’t really matter, does it?
To the relief of racist white Democrats like a the lady from Will and Grace and the dismay of racist white Republicans like… well, take your pick, really, Kanye has not stolen the Black vote from Joe Biden and is also polling at 2% among Black voters.
Is this poll fake news, though? No, it’s not. Black voters aren’t any dumber or smarter than voters of any other ethnicity. They can also clearly see Kanye West is a moron and aren’t going to vote for him just because he’s Black and if you thought that was going to happen, well… you might be a racistneck.
Is Kanye’s campaign just a plot to sink Joe Biden’s campaign to help Donald Trump? Look, if enough people vote for Kanye West and not you that it costs you an election, you don’t deserve to be President of the United States. Seriously, people don’t owe you a vote because you’re on the blue team or the red team, you have to a make a case that you should be president, and if you can’t make that case more effectively than Kanye West…
But TMZ reports that Kanye did ditch his wife Kim, who he just barely still married to and is supposed to be working on fixing that marriage, to meet with President Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. Kanye says his meeting was just about “Black empowerment” and the book PowerNomics by Dr Claude Anderson.
I have a feeling Kanye West’s idea of Black empowerment these days mostly involves empowering Kanye West, honestly. But it’s nice he’ll have something to do with all the time he used to spend having a wife.

Kanye West is being used by the Republicans and may go to jail over election fraud.
West is currently running for president. Haha, wait, Let me read that again. Yea..that’s right. President West.
Anyway, West’s team has been collecting signatures to get onto the ballots in multiple states, but states have declared many of those signatures as invalid.
So far, New Jersey and Illinois have declined to add him to the ballots due to suspicious signatures. Wisconsin is on the verge of dropping him also.
Illinois dropped him last Friday after 60% of the signatures to get him on the ballot were declared invalid.
It sounds like West’s team is just lying to people to get them to sign blank petitions. Mic notes:
“Cheryl Pernell said she was approached in a Walmart parking lot in Milwaukee by a woman who asked if she was registered to vote. When Pernell said yes, the woman asked her to put down her name so they’d know she was already registered. Pernell gave out her information as requested, but said she couldn’t see the top of the form she signed.
“Then yesterday, August 6, I got a call telling me what I actually signed was papers to get Kanye West on the ballot,” Pernell wrote in her affidavit. “If I had known that, I wouldn’t have signed the papers, absolutely not. Kanye West would not get my vote and I think it’s a joke that he’s running for president.”
I would imagine other states where reported GOP operatives assisted him to get on the ballot will soon be reviewing. #Election2020
— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) August 9, 2020
Kanye’s being supported by the Republicans according to the NY Times.
The strategy became overt on Tuesday, when Lane Ruhland, a lawyer who has worked for the Trump campaign, delivered ballot signatures to Wisconsin elections officials on behalf of the West campaign.
Ms. Ruhland worked for the state Republican Party during Wisconsin’s recount in the 2016 presidential election. She has been representing the Trump campaign in a lawsuit filed this year against a Wisconsin television station for airing an advertisement criticizing the president’s coronavirus response.
Obviously, the plan is to divert votes from Joe Biden.
But the real question is: when can I buy one of those fancy Kanye West domes? I bet they fall apart just like Brad Pitt’s Hurricane Katrina houses though.
Kanye West is still running for President. I don’t know how or why this is possible, but I’m assuming it’s related to him making giant inflatable women in his garage instead of trying to save his marriage.

That looks like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float for WAP.
The latest wrinkle in Kanye’s run for President is that he could be getting kicked off of the ballet in Illinois and Wisconsin because of fake signatures on his petitions to make the ballot.
The Hill reports that Kanye West won’t be on the ballot in Illinois after over half of his required 2,500 signatures were deemed invalid. And that 2,500 is only 10% of what’s normally required, with the number being dropped because of the coronavirus.
Despite panic from racist white liberals that West is entering the race to be a spoiler and take votes from Joe Biden, because people like Debra Messing think Black voters will just vote for any famous Black person and don’t pay attention to issues, Kanye so far has only qualified to appear on the ballot in three safe Republican states, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
Of course, it doesn’t help that Nick Cannon’s dumb ass is out in the world doing exactly that, saying he’ll vote for Kanye because “We need another black man in power.” That’s if Kanye even gets on the ballot in California; the man he hired to do the job has been previously arrested for election fraud.
I honestly believe that Kanye’s campaign is so inept that he could end up in jail because of it. Running for political office is a serious thing and there are lots of rules that govern what you can and can’t do.
Kanye is also having trouble in Wisconsin, where his application is being challenged for fake and fraudulently-acquired signatures. You can’t just throw a presidential campaign together on a whim.
Ross Perot, the most successful third-Party candidate of the modern era, declared his candidacy in February 1992 and got on the ballot in all 50 states; at one point in the campaign he led both Bill Clinton and incumbent George HW Bush and was in the presidential debates. Perot didn’t get a single electoral vote in the end.
Kanye West is not Ross Perot. He’s already definitely not on the ballot in 17 states, including Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois and Pennsylvania, five states which represent a combined 136 electoral votes, almost exactly half of the 270 electoral votes required to win. The three states Kanye has qualified for represent 23 electoral votes.
Kanye West will not be president, at least not on January 21st, 2021. He could still be married to Kim Kardashian on that date, though, and that seems like the thing he should be worried about. There’s less of a chance he ends up in jail that way, as well.

Marital and mental problems?
Kanye West took part in a video late Friday that was clearly meant to be a response to these ongoing questions, with the rapper basically saying in response:
HUH? WHAT MARITAL AND MENTAL PROBLEMS?!?!?
The 43-year-old rapper -- and aspiring Joe Biden Presidential spoiler -- was spotted on social media yesterday in an allegedly candid video of him and his seven-year-old daughter, North West.
As you can see here, two busted out their dance moves and recreated a viral video making the rounds online.
"IT'S FRI-YE-YE," Kanye captioned the footage he shared.
In the clip, which appeared to be recorded by Kim Kardashian and which is clearly an attempt by the star to depict her husband in a positive light, the father-child duo leap out of a cart to show off their dancing skills.
At one point, North asked her dad what day it was, and with a huge smile on his face, Kanye replied:
"It's Friday then."
We guess this means the Wests are hanging out as a family once again... following what has been a VERY tumultuous couple of weeks.
The video went live almost two weeks after Kanye and Kim reunited for the first time in recent weeks.
In late July, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star flew to Wyoming to see her troubled husband, with a insider telling E! News "it got very emotional."
How could it not?!?
Just days prior, Kanye has gone on stage and told the world that he wanted to abort North after initially learning Kim was pregnant with his baby.
Kardashian was reportedly so irate about her husband going public with something so private that she met with a divorce attorney.
She also issued her first-ever statement about Kanye's mental health, stating that West is bipolar and asking people to please show "compassion and empathy."
The rapper, for his part, has since said he's totally fine and is simply pro-choice.
But he did apologize to Kim for placing her in such an awkward spot.
"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," Kanye Tweeteed on Saturday, July 25, adding:
"I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me.
"Thank you for always being there for me."
Will she continue to be, however?
For a period of time, Kanye was chilling in Wyoming and Kardashian was at home in Los Angles with the couple's four kids.
Prior to his apology, meanwhile, West had been posting messages about Kim and her family on social media.
"Kriss [sic] don't play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children," the artist wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
"Ya'll tried to lock me up."
It was shortly afterward that Kim penned her lengthy message on Instagram.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most," she wrote online late last month.
"I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.
"Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye's well being and for your understanding."
We can't say for certain just where things stand now between Kim and Kanye.
But the stars clearly want us to think things are fine now, in light of this new video going viral.
"There are no serious talks of divorce yet," reports E! News.
I think Kanye West is still in the middle of his manic episode. He was supposed to be off on an island fortress trying to save his marriage, but he apparently has time to apply for trademarks.
In this case, TMZ reports he’s applying for a trademark on the term “2020Vision” as a name for those weird-ass beehive boob-looking housing units he had to tear down.
Kanye’s team also reveals more details on how they plan to use “2020Vision” — saying he intends to use the name on permanent metal and non-metal dome shelters, as well as actual construction and engineering services that’ll be used to make them a reality.
So, have you noticed the problem with this? The name 2020Vision is going to seem really clever for about five more months, at which point he might as well call his construction company 1967 Builders or 20th Century Fox or Luxottica.
As TMZ points out, West also used 2020Vision in conjunction with his presidential run, which is still going about as well as you’d expect.
Something West perhaps hasn’t thought through is presidents can’t typically operate a dozen companies while they’re president. Jimmy Carter put his peanut farm in a blind trust when he was elected. Of course, recent events would point to most of the rules around what a president can and can’t do being more like suggestions since there’s clearly no opposition party willing to challenge him on anything.
I don’t actually see this going anywhere. It’s mostly just more proof that being a billionaire and being intelligent are not related at all.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven’t thrown in the towel on their marriage just yet.
TMZ reports that the couple and their kids are finally all together in one place after being apart for months, but there’s a catch: they’ve flown to a private island to avoid the paparazzi.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, the fam is staying in what is described as a “fortress” … an estate that is so remote it’s virtually impossible for trespassers to get close.
I’m picturing this thing being inside a volcano-shaped like a skull, making this the final step in Kanye’s transformation for ordinary narcissist to Dr. Doom. He already refers to himself in the third person a lot, and I can see him hiring Elon Musk to make Kanyebots to handle mental tasks and fool that accursed Richards, although Musk’s robots would probably fall apart if they get wet.
I hope these two crazy kids work things out, because what am I going to write about if they separate and there’s no more drama? I can’t count on Ellen DeGeneres to maul a poor person every day. I mean, I guess I could, no one would be surprised if she did at this point.

Amid Kanye West's latest bipolar meltdown, Kim Kardashian flew to Wyoming last week, where the rapper has been holed up at his ranch in the remote town of Cody.
The trip did not go smoothly.
Kim only stayed for a day, during which time, she and Kanye were photographed arguing in a car.
In pics obtained by TMZ, Kim is in tears, while Kanye is, by turns, gesturing wildly or responding to his wife's pain -- which he, of course, caused -- with callous indifference.
Kim returned from Wyoming without Kanye, and many assumed she would begin divorce proceedings upon returning to LA.
But it seems the mother of four is not quite ready to give up on her marriage.
According to a new report from UK tabloid The Sun, Kim made a return trip to Cody this week, and this time, she brought reinforcements.
Kim was joined on her private flight by "hipster pastor" (The Sun's words, not ours) Rich Wilkerson.
Wilkerson officiated Kim and Kanye's wedding ceremony in 2014, and he's reportedly remained an influential force in West's life ever since.
Insiders say Kim is hoping that Wilkerson can convince Kanye to check into an in-patient treatment facility.
A source says the three of them will leave Kanye's ranch so that they can discuss matters someplace more private and secluded than ... rural Wyoming.
"Kim and Kanye's trip isn't a romantic holiday," says one insider, giving new meaning to "stating the obvious."
"It's more of a chance for them to reconnect away from the chaos of Wyoming, the hangers on who surround Kanye and the audience of their entourage," the source adds.
As if the phrase "the chaos of Wyoming" wasn't enough to underscore how bizarre this situation has become, Kim apparently considered bringing her mother, despite the fact that Kanye recently accused Kris Jenner of being a white supremacist.
"Kim wanted to bring her mom but didn't want Kanye to feel like he was being pressured," a separate source claims.
"She's planning to fly Rich Wilkerson Jnr, their pastor who married them, out with his wife - or if Kanye is resistant, to video call him. He's someone Kanye trusts," the insider adds.
"He's been a constant in Kim and Kanye's lives and he's a friend of the family. Kim is hoping an intervention will help Kanye."
The move by Kim has been described as a "last-ditch effort," and many onlookers continue to believe the couple is headed for divorce.
Over the weekend fans thought they spotted a glimmer of hope when Kim posted throwback photos from her wedding dress fitting.
Sadly, it seems she did so not in fond remembrance of the wedding itself, but as a tribute to designer Ricardo Tisci on his birthday.
Rumors about Kim and Kanye getting divorced have been circulating more or less since the day they got married, but never before has the couple seemed so close to the precipice.
It's a testament to Kim's commitment to her family that she's even attempting to save this marriage after all the horrendous things Kanye has said about her in recent weeks (including allegations that she cheated on him with Meek Mill).
But it's a safe bet that if the pastor's intervention isn't effective, Kim will do what she needs to do to protect her children, whicn will probably mean ending her marriage.
Kanye West almost dropped his run for President in a way that let him retain some dignity. Because he started on a whim, Kanye probably won’t be on the ballot in enough states to actually be the president even if he were to win every state he’s running in. That’s not the sort of thing that’s worth blowing up your marriage over.
But boy has Kanye blown his marriage up over this bullshit. I mean, I know that Kanye is in the middle of a mental health crisis, but still. As an aside don’t you think it’s kind of fucked up that if you’re rich and in the middle of a mental health episode you can get on the ballot as a presidential candidate in several swing states?
Page Six is reporting that a source close to the Kardashians told them that Kim said this whole affair has been “a nightmare.”
A source said, “Kim begged Kanye to stop his presidential thing, to stop talking about their kids at rallies. But he ignored her and instead he went ahead and hired more people . . . and tried to register in more states. He just won’t stop this presidential bulls–t.”
The source claimed, “This is a nightmare for Kim, she is looking for a way out. But she’s also a nice person and wants to do the best for her kids.”
We’ve been hearing a lot of Kanye and Kim divorce rumors, but I still don’t know what to think of them. They’re pretty persistent, but if you wanted to sound like you knew what you were talking about you’d say Kanye West’s spouse wants to divorce him. Come on, that’s a safer bet than Pete Rose not making the Hall of Fame ballot.
Of course Kim denied it once again through a rep.
A rep for Kardashian said, “This is not true.”
Simple, straightforward. I don’t buy it. Everyone watches Kanye West and says “If I was his wife and I was independently wealthy I would totally leave that dude.”

Looks like Kim Kardashian had her share of Kanye West, McDonald’s and Walmarts.
Kardashian is back in Los Angeles after flying out to see Kanye and his presidential campaign this past Sunday. Let’s see, it’s Wednesday. Three days of Kanye, yeah, that’s about all someone could handle.
It’s been rough for Kardashian. In an Instagram story, she wrote a huge post about Kanye’s bipolar disorder and how we should be more understanding.
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions…He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”
This supposedly has left Kardashian frazzled, which, no s**t? People says she’s “hysterically crying,” “hurt,” and “emotionally exhausted.” Not sure I believe that. Of course, it’s very trying for her. But I just think she’s very strong mentally. At least stronger than someone who cries “hysterically.”
Kanye apologized for his comments recently, not sure if Kim accepted.
I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.
They’ll divorce in less than two years. That’s my guess. At some point, the Jenners and Kardashians will calculate how much Kanye is ruining their brand and cut him loose.
The post Kim Kardashian Back Home From Wyoming After Dealing With Kanye West appeared first on The Blemish.
I generally read too much into someone crying while fighting with their spouse because honestly, couples fight and sometimes that causes crying even if it’s not that bad a fight. I myself am a huge cryer, I cry just at the drop of a hat at like, TV shows and. Lives and all sorts of dumb s**t, so of course I cry when I have a fight with my partner.
That’s why I wouldn’t assume Kim Kardashian crying while she was talking to her husband Kanye West on Monday as People reported means anything in particular. Kanye called Kim a white supremacist, told the entire world they almost aborted their first child and decreed that Kim’s mom Kris Jenner wasn’t allowed around his kids anymore, of course she’s going to be upset. Crying is probably a better sign for their relationship than the screaming and foul language he’d have gotten if he had pulled that s**t with me.
People talked to a source close to the couple.
A source tells PEOPLE that “as soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car.”
“Kim is hysterically crying,” the source says, adding that “Kim hasn’t seen Kanye for weeks.”
“She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted,” the source says. “She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. ”
“It’s all a bad situation,” the source adds.
“She decided to fly to Cody to speak to him in person. She doesn’t want to be ignored anymore.”
Now, I said not to read too much into the crying, and that screaming would have been a worse sign, but People still insists the couple is headed for a divorce.
“There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over,” a source with knowledge of the situation told PEOPLE last week, adding that discussions of divorce have been “a long time coming.”
If Kim Kardashian left Kanye, I think we’d all understand. I’d have left him right about the time he jumped up on stage with Taylor Swift at the VMAs.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: Kanye and Kim didn’t start dating until 2011 and he jumped on stage with Taylor Swift in 2009. Yeah, you’re right, which means Kim had all the information she needed to not date Kanye. That Fishdicks episode of South Park was on in 2009, too, she really doesn’t have any excuse.

Kim Kardashian has been bending over backwards to protect Kanye West’s career and good name while he’s been in the midst of a manic episode. Kanye has not been making this easy for her by doing things like tell everyone they almost aborted North and calling her a white supremacist who was trying to have him involuntarily committed.
Now Kanye has apologized to his wife. Let’s read.
I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.
I did not cover her like she has covered https://t.co/A2FwdMu0YU Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.

Is it just me, or does this come across like his mom is pulling him by the ear and saying “well, go on” while he sort of mumbles it out?
Kanye West needs help. He doesn’t seem like he’s going to hurt himself at the moment, but the other pole in “bipolar” is depression and that is going to happen and he’s not going to want to be alone for that. His biggest problem is that on top of being bipolar, he’s also an asshole.
It’s nice that he’s making an effort to make things better, but if I were Kim I would make Kanye massively kiss my massive ass when his episode is over.

Justin Bieber and Kanye West are besties. Bieber headed out to Wymoing to visit our future president, Kanye West. West tweeted a photo of Damon Dash and Biber, presumably talking about interior design, judging by the caption.

Kanye’s tweet read “DD & JB discussing the new spray foam wall prototypes on the YZY campus” and showed the two sitting side by side with their backs to the camera
This “YZY Campus“, which I never really looked into, is in Wyoming and sits on 4,000 acres. West calls it “West Lake Ranch”. Supposedly, it’ll have newer versions of his Calabasas domes, alternative energy sources and in general, deal with increasing sustainability. I could explain further, but I’m not looking to get into Kanye’s mind too deep.
When he’s not stopping off at the local Wyoming Walmart, Kanye, as you know, has been running for president. He’s been saying crazy stuff like calling Kim Kardashian a white supremacist and accusing her of cheating on him with Meek Mill.
Kim Kardashian has been very understanding of Kanye and his bipolar disorder, posting a long essay about how we should be more accepting of people with these conditions. At the same time, Kim’s gotta look out for herself. Probably why she’s been consulting with divorce lawyers, just in case.
Kanye is like one really long Britney Spears umbrella freakout.
Look out, folks.
Pigs may soon come flying outside your window. Cows may come home any second.
Really, anything could happen at all... because Kanye West has seemingly realized the error of his ongoing ways.
Amid a flurry of divorce rumors, and days after he ranted first on stage about his wife and then on social media about the state of his marriage, Kanye has issued an apology.
"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," the artist Tweeted on Saturday.
"I did not cover her like she has covered me," he added, concluding as follows:
"To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."
Even by Kanye West standards, the past week or so has been a roller coaster ride.
FIRST, he held a Presidential campaign rally in South Carolina, during which he told all listeners that he wanted to terminate Kim's first pregnancy,
"She was crying… and for one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand," West said in front of supporters.
THEN, Kanye taunted Kim by saying she wanted to have him locked up on a mental institution.
"Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday," he wrote on Twitter after the South Carolina diatribe.
FROM THERE, West told the world that he's been trying to divorce Kardashian for two years.
As documented in detail below, Kanye has been airing the couple's dirty laundry to an extent never seen before.
And he's been doing it all while rumors of Kim meeting with divorce attorneys and considering a legal split from her famous husband continue to make the rounds.
Kim has yet to publicly weigh in on Kanye's apology.
But his recent ramblings prompted her to make her first-ever lengthy statement this week in response to West's mental health struggles.
"As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder," Kardashian said on Wednesday.
"Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand."
"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health.
"But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
In November of 2016, West was hospitalized after suffering an emotional breakdown. It's not a secret that he's been diagnosed as bipolar.
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," wrote Kim on Instagram.
"People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
"I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at time can cause strong opinions and emotions."
In a very well-written message, Kardashian went on:
"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.
"Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some."
To conclude, Kim wrote:
"That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most."
As of this writing, Kim is in Los Angeles with her kids -- while Kanye is in Wyoming, where a select handful of famous friends (Dave Chappelle, Justin Bieber) have paid him a visit.

Well, it’s Wyoming, where else you gonna shop? I’ll give Kanye points for choosing Wyoming a long time ago. He started going out there to record a new album. Now it looks like a genius move. No paparazzi all this time. Plus now, he avoids the virus. Some would call him a stable genius.

By now, you've probably heard about Kanye West's latest Twitter tirade, which looks as though it might result in the end of his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
Yes, Kim-Kanye divorce rumors have been circulating for years, but this latest round is different.
This time, it's hard to imagine that the couple will be able to make their way back from West's claims and get to a healthy place in their relationship.
To be fair, Kim and others have stated that Kanye is in the midst of a bipolar episode, and there's a good chance he doesn't mean much of what he's saying.
Still, news that Kim has met with a divorce lawyer doesn't come as much of a surprise.
Kanye said some profoundly hurtful things during his latest tirade, and Kim might feel that she has no choice but to end her marriage for the sake of her children.
The trouble started on Sunday, when Kanye hosted an event for his presidential campaign in Charleston, South Carolina.
During a tearful hourlong speech, West informed the crowd that Kim nearly had an abortion while she was pregnant with the couple's first child, North West.
He also said that he believed Kim might divorce him for making such private information public.
Instead, Kardashian visited the rapper at his ranch in Cody, Wyoming, where -- according to Kanye -- she tried to place him under a 5150 psychiatric hold.
Again, Kanye made the incident public in a bitter tirade, this time on Twitter:
“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughter’s life yesterday,” he tweeted on Monday, July 20.
“If I get locked up like Mandela Y’all will know why.”
Late Tuesday night, West went on another Twitter rant, this time accusing Kim of cheating on him with rapper Meek Mill during a 2018 forum on criminal justice reform.
Reps for Kim have since confirmed that Kim and Meek both attended the forum, but they say it was a public event, and the two of them were never alone together.
Now, Meek has addressed the rumor, as well, tweeting:
"Sh-t is cappp cmon ...."
"Cap" is common slang or lie, and Mill seems to be suggesting that West's claims are dishonest.
Kanye has yet to reply to Meek's rebuttal.
Meanwhile, Kim asked for compassion as she and her husband confront the biggest crisis of their six-year marriage.
"As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder," she wrote, in a statement posted to her Instagram page.
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," she continued.
"People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
Our thoughts go out to Kim and her family during this difficult time, and we hope Kanye is able to find whatever kind of help he needs.
I’ve always mostly thought of Kim Kardashian as being the world’s richest and least-hard-working porn star, but I have a newfound respect for her after watching how she’s handled her husband Kanye West’s latest extended mental episode.
Kim released a statement on her Instagram story, which is probably what Kanye was referring to when he said she was making a statement without his approval and that’s not what a wife should do. Here’s what she said, via People.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she began. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” she said. “People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at time can cause strong opinions and emotions,” she continued. “He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
“Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true,” she wrote. “We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and for your understanding.”
Imagine having your husband publicly calls you a whore who wants her 7-year-old daughter to pose for Playboy, that he wants a divorce, demand you quit your job to move to Wyoming and decreeing your mother can’t see your kids anymore and this being your response. You think Amber Heard would have responded like this?
People also had comments from a Kardashian “insider” with knowledge of how Kim is handling all of this.
“She was most upset that [Kanye] said that Kris isn’t allowed around the kids,” the source said. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Kris is an important part of the kids’ lives and Kim loves the bond they have. She’s 100 percent allowed around the kids.”
It seems like there’s a misunderstanding here, Kanye wasn’t saying that Kris hasn’t been allowed around the kids, he was decreeing that Kris no longer to be around the kids, which Kim has clearly ignored, and good on her for doing so.
“She feels that it’s disrespectful, not only to her, but her family. She feels that she has been nothing but respectful to him throughout their marriage. She has stood beside him again and again, no matter how ridiculous it seemed. And if she didn’t like what he was doing or if she disagreed with the things he said, she kept her mouth shut,” the source said. “She’s at the end of her rope and trying to decide what to do next.”
This isn’t wrong, Kim didn’t say anything about Kanye holding church services or building that weird beehive housing thing with no permit, and he’s telling her how to dress and act even when he’s not having a manic episode.
Also, about Kanye’s subtle allegations that Kim cheated on him with Meek Mill, TMZ reported the meeting about prison reform was attended by more people aside from Meek Mill and Kardashian and was at Jean-Georges, a restaurant located in the Waldorf Astoria, not in a hotel room.
