There are a lot of things to like about Donald Trump. But with out a doubt, the worst thing about Donald Trump running for President is the fact that we have to take Kanye West seriously in that he might actually run for President. Pre-Trump? We laughed it off. Post-Trump, we have to take Kanye seriously. Because Trump likes the guy.
And while part of me likes the idea of Kanye West beating Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 primary because “he fights,” “he speaks his mind,” and because “he’s politically incorrect,” I wouldn’t wish that on America. I also wouldn’t wish Elizabeth Warren on America, but…#kanyeshrug.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the 2020 primary. While Donald Trump loves Kanye, Kanye loves…Ben Carson?
“As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy. And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.”
Wait…what? Don’t get me wrong, I like Carson, he’s a solid dude.
But Kanye didn’t make any sense there. I think he’s trying to say that Carson is all about unifying the public, and trying to get us to recognize our power as unified Americans… but I’m not quite sure. Can you decipher for me?
One thing that I think is hilarious, and many people might has missed was this nugget.
“As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him.”
Key word here is tried. What does that tell you? That Ben Carson doesn’t take his calls. Unlike Trump, who does. Also, Trump uses call-returning as a measure for how important a person is.
Ben Carson is a sweetheart, but even he doesn’t have the time of day for the borderline-special-needs sideshow that is Kanye West. That’s something I can get behind.
