At Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s palatial resort, he holds sway over his sycophants and hanger-on’s like the Pope at the Vatican. Mar-a-Lago is the evangelical Mecca where anyone who seeks to be a power player in Republican politics makes a pilgrimage to kiss the Orange Messiah’s ring.
Imagine Trump’s incredulity and outrage when renowned anti-Semite Kanye West visited him at Mar-a-Lago to inform him that not only was he planning on running for president in 2024, but he wanted Trump to be his running mate. That’s like a house slave telling the master of the plantation that he’s planning on marrying his daughter.
Trump reacted with outrage, screaming at Kanye that he was going to lose and insulting his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. Kanye has an ego as huge as Trump’s, but he doesn’t know his role as an Uncle Tom. He’s supposed to praise Trump, don a MAGA hat and wear an Uncle Tom grin whenever he’s in his presence, but he’s never supposed to forget that he is an inferior by virtue of his black skin.
Trump is correct that Kanye will lose if he runs for president in 2024. The moron ran for president in 2020, appeared on the ballot in only 12 states and collected around 60,000 votes out of an estimated 160 million.
I wouldn’t pay a dime to watch a Kanye West concert, but I would have paid thousands of dollars to witness the disgraced rapper ask Trump if he wanted to be his running mate.
