Well, if WOKE, is the word of choice for those who are trying to force cultural change, it can also then be said of rap megastar and fashion mogul Kanye West.
Kanye shared his, as usual, unfiltered thoughts about President Trump, God, and politics in a Forbes interview only a few days after tweeting about his presidential bid.
“Reinstate in God’s state, in God’s country, the fear and love of God in all schools and organizations and you chill the fear and love of everything else, so that was a plan by the Devil to have our kids committing suicide at an all-time high by removing God to have murdered in Chicago at an all-time high because the human beings working for the Devil removed God and prayer from the schools,” the “Follow God”. “That means more drugs, more murders, more suicide.”
In more recent years, West has made inferences to getting into politics and on July 4th took the next step by announcing his entry into the Presidential race.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

Confusing to some, Kanye clarified if his announcement was for 2020 or 2024 – “Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.
By entering the 2020 race, Kanye will be running against President Trump, whom he was demonized by the left for meeting with President, wearing a MAGA CAP.
With several issues, he agrees with the President on, Kanye found time to give President Trump good press.
“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation,” he said of the president in the interview, adding that he is personally pro-life “because I’m following the word of the Bible.”
For me, I am not sure what Kayne West’s entire purpose for announcing a Presidential run is, but if he is serious at all, could be a “spoiler ” for Joe Biden as I believe West would pull back democratic voters from Sleepy Joe, which would prevent the presumptive Democratic nominee from winning the election. Kind of like a Ross Perot in reverse.
