With the election just weeks away, Kanye West’s twitter fingers are at it again. Known for his controversial rants, outlandish style and hard-hitting singles; recently Kanye West is hurting this election and stealing potential votes.
Many may recall when West announced his 2020 United States presidential election campaign in July sending shock waves through social media. Some of the artists’ fans rallied in support, while others were a bit skeptical. Nonetheless, many can agree that using his platform to polarize voters is dangerous.
Rappers such as Chance the Rapper jumped at the opportunity to support West. Chance tweeted, “And yall out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh.” Immediately following a series of tweets about why West was the best candidate for the upcoming presidential election.
In such a crucial election Kanye West is hurting the election. There is no time for games, or ruses to unintentionally steal potential votes away from the official democratic nominee, Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris.
Many agree that the artist is unfit to run for president. Kanye West lacks political experience, knowledge and possibly the mental capability to be president. If the last four years have taught us anything, it’s that being President of the United States isn’t for the faint of heart. If we look back on previous presidents, Trump was a reality TV star and former President Ronald Reagan was a Hollywood actor before entering politics. And look how that turned out? The presidency is not just an entry level position, it requires skill, strategy, and decisive decision making.
